No Thank you… I’m happy with my Black Shorts & white T-shirt… LOL
... except in winter, Black sweat pants, White T-shirt, covered with a flannel shirt as required…
That’s about it! Simple… and easy…

I think you may be right, but Norm Abahams is the one who made it popular when woking in his shop….I have about a dozen different styles that I used to wear, but not much anymore…..Too dangerous to wear long sleeves around machines, like the table saw….I had a close call years ago, and gave up wearing sleeves…..

There are prolly a lot of Jocks on here that look just like them guys up above, and also dress like them….lol…

Rick,

You would be safer with the sleeveless variety:

Sleeveless T-shirt equals “wife beater”. I’m glad I went beyond the current trend of plaid shirts, and wear work clothes, not even jeans. Well, jeans are for “dress”, anymore, snork. Those guys would run crying to their significant others if they got a boo-boo or splinter.

Nothing against carpenters but if I had shirts made they wouldn’t say I’m a carpenter!

Isn’t that a bit of an oxymoron? What would you have them say? You don’t like Carpenters?
