    I know the ladies love my farmer's tan when i'm at the beach but i'd like to even it out. Do any of you guys mow without a shirt. I feel really unprofessional doing it but i really don't need a farmer's tan that lasts well into Jersey's first snow storm.

    with my red arms and neck and my white chest I just throw a pair of blue shorts on and I look damn patriotic on the 4th of july!

    Shirtless crews look very unprofessional IMO.

    Here it's " tres chic" to have a farmers tan. People with even tans are frowned upon or even ridiculed. When I'm in the sun with my shirt off, I apply spf 100 suncreen to my entire torso with the exception of my forearms and neck.
