he’ll still sweat profusely in them
Pluggers don’t care!
Many wear the same shirts winter or summer.
Must admit Spring is hard to dress for . 45 degrees in the morning and 75 degrees in the afternoon ;-)
Or cut off the sleeves above where the elbows have worn through.
I prefer to wear short sleeve shirts all year round. And put on a hooded sweatshirt if necessary.
Still gets chilly in the evening, even sitting around the campfire.
And if you have to “go” in the woods, the sleeves make for a good wipe; better than using a sock.
I’ve gotten in the habit of wearing a themed T-shirt as an undershirt. Gets warm, just take the long-sleeved shirt off, tie it around your waist. (Realizing that might not be an option for many Pluggers).
Some of us just stop wearing a T-shirt.
Puggers have their long sleeves cut off to become short sleeves once they wear through at the elbows.
Maybe by the time he’s worn them often enough, they have become more threadbare and better for wearing in the summer.
We bearly needs lotsa shirts.
Actually, any long sleeve shirts fall into this category. I wear long sleeve shirts all summer and roll up the sleeves when I get warm. Also saves on the sun screen, ’cause on those warm/hot days, I wear shirts that are worn thin for more air circulation and keep the sleeves down.
I didn’t discover “real” flannel until a couple of years ago. It is amazingly comfortable over a twenty-degree temperature range. Warm – roll up the sleeves. Cold – turn up the collar and button the collar button. It really is worth it to spend an extra $20 or $30 for good flannel.
Husband cannot find new shirts he likes – so I keep making hidden sewing repairs to his old ones.
