    how do you stand the heat? the only way i can stand 90 degrees or so when mowing is to wear light colored shorts,and light shirt with the top 2 buttons undone. :confused:

    He is from Mass. They only think they know what hot is up there. They can actually get in the shade and cool off in the summers up there.

    I wear pants year round. reason being I really dislike things that hit me in the legs while trimming. the heat is a small detail to me.

    I wear shorts year-round. In the winter I might have on two shirts, a sweatshirt, gloves and a hat, but still shorts.;)

    not to mention having really hairy legs and having to brush grass out of it :laugh: i honestly have to do that when i wear shorts and mow/trim. it's both annoying and humorous at the same time.

    Have always worn shorts but have been wearing pants all the time so far this year, keeps stuff out of my shoes, protects my legs, and it does look more professional as i don't have nice cargo shorts, i just have basketball shorts
