Re: Tshirts Off When Hot?


Think times are different. Growing up and working for my dad during the summer nobody ever had their shirts on. My dad always had his off first. Think he was proud of the beer belly.

Didn't matter if dealing with homeowner or new construction he didn't care.

Me and my guys always have shirts on and always have. I still see guys working without shirts. Usually the heavier white guys for some reason. The Mexicans wear long sleeve no matter how hot it gets.

Re: Tshirts Off When Hot?


I use to take my shirt off once in awhile when it was hot when building pole barns or working around my property back in Delaware, but Texas is different. That and I'm older, you can burn in a New York minute in the Texas sun.

Never on a job and not even while I'm running.

Btw in summer I work, go to store, go to bars in tank tops (last one if hot in evening too). Woven one like levis.
I got a free shirt from a bar once because I was wearing a muscle shirt and they were like it's not allowed

Hell I worked on government jobs back in the early 80's and we took our shirts off. Didn't think anything of it back then.

Muscle shirts are knitted I guess (wife beaters). Levis tank tops are woven. Huge difference. Plus they are NOT deep cut. I would not mind if someone say me I can not go in with tank tops. Just didn't happen so far. Be in Mpls it do not happen to often that I wear tank top in evenings (maybe 15 times per year). I was past night in 4 different bars and no one say nothing plus was other guys like me. Problem is that tasteless idiots come in bar in so called gym tank tops that are deep cut and then owner do not have choice than ban all tank tops. Would never show up in it, or in wife beater, or in to tight top.
