Appearance while working outside

Does any one see a problem in taking your shirt off when working at a customers house? I would like to cause im getting the classic farmers tan really bad but I don't really think it looks very professional. Just wondering what your thoughts are on the subject.

I used to do it when I first started, but not for several years now. It's very unprofessional.

As long as you fold it neatly and put it aside with your shoes, I think it's fine.

You could go to tanning parlor on your off days and wear long tube socks on your arms and legs to even it out.

Don't the girls like the farmer tan look? Of course, you've got to get your shirt off before they'd even know...

It's only ok if you're a good looking young lady , otherwise no, it isn't very professional.

I remember reading somewhere about somebody who tried a topless mowing service charging premium prices but I don't know how they made out with it.

If your working out in the coutry might be ok. I never do unless I'm at home tho. A lot of the country boys here do. I think company t shirts look a lot more proffesional. To hot here for polo shirts.

Shirts stay on!!! If they wanted that kind of look on their property, they could've got a discount by hiring a couple of scrub amateurs who are out doing it for their beer money.

The shirt must stay on! The farmer tan is a evil result of the work we do.
