    Do you let your employees work with or without shirts? Is it professional to not wear them?

    It is totally unprofessional not to wear a shirt. If you can't handle the heat than I suggest you get a desk job. The guys that tend to go shirtless in my area are either so skinny they probably have not eaten in a week and survive on cigarettes or are husky individuals. Either way they are a complete eye sore.

    How would you view it if the mechanics at your car dealership didn't wear shirts? How would it seem if the mail carrier didnt wear a shirt?

    I seriously doubt your professionalism, and dedication to building a quality company if you even have the guts to ask such a question.

    I would die laughing if the dealer mechanics and mailmen went shirtless.:laugh: Somehow delivering mail shirtless seems different from mowing a lawn with no shirt.
