Shorts make no sense if you are climbing in a machine to service parts. My legs get hotter when exposed to the sun than when in pants so I only wear pants. I can see the value of sleeveless shirts if it is hot and you are not working in the sun. Since I do not own shorts it is always pants/jeans for me.

It is in our company policy to wear boots. We prefer steel toed boots. Personally, I don't care if someone wears shorts or jeans, but it must be of sturdy material---I don't want an employee whining to go home early because they ripped their pants. I wear jeans year round, don't care how hot it gets-my shins are protected, and dirt goes on the clothes and not my body.
