    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. :cool:

    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. :rolleyes:

    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 :p , 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.
