One word. Power. Jeff Bezos rocks the sleeveless vest and he's sitting at 105 billion in net worth. Did Bezos wear the vest when he was selling paperbacks with a receding hairline? NO.

You can also use it to flex your bicep when you take a call. Always remember to flare your elbow all the way out. That way you can pretend elbowing the SEC guy behind you was an accident. Copenhagen long cut is recommended to improve all of these functions.
