    Looking Good, Charlie. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I've worn blue jeans with t-shirt and sneakers most of my life, when not at work. When I was working construction, I wore jeans and T-shirt with work boots.

    Most of the time I take mercy on the public by not wearing shorts, but sometimes I put comfort over avoidance of screaming women and children. Just sayin'.

    The statement that jeans and t-shirts are only for children (and cowboys) may display a hint of classism. They have traditionally been worn by all manner of physical laborers. Miners and farmers and construction workers and mechanics, etc. I say, why shouldn't everyone wear them?

    Nowadays, seeing more and more folk out in public wearing sweat pants or pajamas, a pair of jeans seem positively formal.

    I wear shorts from April to about October. Jeans in the fall and winter. I’m retired and I wear whatever I want and no more than I have to.

    A lot of school bus drivers in Minnesota wear shorts year-round. For that matter, so do a lot of the kids who stand out in 10-degree weather to wait for their bus. Many actually walk out to the road to wait, unlike those who get a ride to the end of the driveway and wait in the comfort of Mom’s warm SUV.
