Shorts to work? With some of the nasty stuff we get in contact with or just in general how dirty we often get I would never wear shorts to work. Then again your "cold months" are probably my early or late summer months. I still have 1'6" of snow on my lawn that has not yet melted away.

I wear shorts too, maybe another month before the temperature is warm enough. I also bring in my fan as most people don't use air conditioning.

I own one pair of dress pants, only used for weddings and funerals.

I have one inspector that thinks hes gangsta wearing like Armani suites to go do inspections, needless to say he didnt go into any dirty areas, now he stays in the office as a supervisor....nice guy, but ....a bit over dressed for a plumbing inspector when he went out into the field, as you guessed it was a VERY political building dept...

No gansta suits. More a dress code with the administration. I have a lot of meetings onsite and at the office, with the public. Jeans are fine on Fridays.


The breathable shirts and pants are great in the summer instead of sweating like a hog and being soaked cotton & kakis all day.


When I was still out on the field working at the plumbing company I could wear my "utili-kilt" to work on new jobs. AH such freedom...….

I know a plumber who should wear lederhosen based on your rule! Lol, I find it hard to understand him at times. My Master says 30 years ago you couldn’t understand him at all.

I don’t encounter much nasty stuff. Primarily residential service, so replacing faucets and fixtures, shower valve rebuilds, water heater replacements, furnace and a/c repair, and snaking branch lines.

Our houses are 95% slab so mainline clean outs are ground level and I only clean one a month or so.

I have coveralls if it’s going to be a dirty job.

Carharts and a thick kneeling pad. Shorts in the summer, service work isn’t that dirty.

In the last couple of weeks I've seen 3 plumbers that had so much glue stains on their clothes it was unbelievable. Without exaggerating I bet the clothes would stand up by themselves. Too bad I can't take pictures. Why does it seem they wear that same disgusting set day after day as a badge of honor? They probably only do new housing, gogogo slap on the glue all over on the pipe, on the floor and on themselves.

In my world you'd be turned around at the door. My first boss would supply coveralls and send us home if our work clothes underneath was dirty.

T-shirt and double knee carhartts. I also have a kneling pad. If I am going into a crawl space I spend a half hour taking the stuff out of all my pockets.
