I have lived in the south my entire life and pretty much the only men I ever see wearing sleeveless are rednecks in wife beaters. I don't even own any sleeveless shirts. I have a number of the "Dry Fit" type polo/golf shirts that feel almost like you don't even have a shirt own they breathe so well. I start wearing those as soon as the highs hit the mid 70's consistently.

Here in Memphis, men going sleeveless isn't really accepted. I see it in the gym, but that's a different thing completely. People dress conservatively in the South, even in summer. Polo style shirt and khaki shorts are pretty standard. Maybe it's different out in the countryside. Most things are

I don't think I have a set temperature that I wear sleeveless. Usually when its in the mid 70s or above I'll wear sleeveless outside. I like to wear dresses, so since a lot of them are sleevless, it gets a little uncomfortable wearing a cardigan over then when it is 70s out.

Inside if I'm just wearing lounge around the house clothes, I normally wear a tank top year round.

Most of my work out shirts have sleeves. I can only think of one shirt that I have that is sleeveless. Its in rotation for outside wear anytime its about 60 degrees, and year round inside.

Don't sleeves uncomfortable when you lift weights. They really bind the motion of my arm, especially when I want to pump up 110 pounds on the vertical traction machine. I also have only 1 sleeveless workout shirt, but wear it whenever I plan to continuously lift heavy weights for a long time.

My Gym is maintained around 71 F year round, hence that is the temperature I am accustomed to working out inside, no matter what I wear. I never wear Sleeveless while working out in the winter, but rest of the year, it is a feasible option.

Wow, that's weird. I am considered to have low tolerance for cold compared to other Jersey Folk. Looks like your ability to withstand chill is well below mine, which is a rare sight .

  3. While working out
My Answers:
  1. At home: I switch over to sleeveless T-shirts as soon as the temperature touches 76 F (25 C)
  2. Outside: I am a guy. Hence, I try to hold off as much as possible. However, anything above 95 F (36 C) compels me to wear sleeveless T-shirts or suffer from the consequences of heat rash .
  3. Working Out: Around 71 F (21 C)
Guys should not ever wear sleeveless other than at the gym, at the beach, or at home.

Anywhere else is just gross.

Honestly, I never do it outside the Gym or home unless the heat is extremely unbearable. Why are you criticizing me of doing so .

Also, when its extremely hot, I would rather avoid a heat rash than think about what other feel about the way I dress. In NJ 95+ F is very rare happens at most 3 days a year. I try to avoid going outside on such days, but would not care to change if I needed to go out very briefly.

And what would you do if it went over 95 for days at a time, year after year? And maybe over 100 with a heat index of 110 or more?

What works in one area of our country is not suitable for others. Also, some of these responses apply only to men.

Those conditions are similar to summers in India. So, I would not hesitate wearing sleeveless at all . I would just regularly cleanse my arms and underarms with coconut oil and apply sandalwood heat resistant powder like I used to do during my childhood days in India to remain clean and fresh after a long hot day of work.
