Bearing in mind that the seasons of the global North and global South are reversed, I'm just wondering what I'm going to do in the soon coming winter with all the sleeveless tops I got?

My birthday and Christmas are in summer.
Tons of sleeveless tops as presents.
But alas, not one new jersey.

Now sweatshirts (we call them T-shirts) with sleeves can be worn over jerseys and long-sleeve tops.
As a dude, I do it often with Iron Maiden and other shirts in winter.

But a vest?

OK vests once had a gym-only, or tacky image for guys.
Ironically, in the gendered fashion industry it was once women who were not supposed to reveal their elbows or armpits.
But then it became men, and any man without sleeves risked being called a "wifebeater".

However, in the last two summers it really went into fashion for men, especially with nice colors and designs.
It didn't look anything like trailer-park underwear.

But what to do with it in winter?

Vests over jerseys - yes or no?

Or perhaps a see-through thermal jersey (like those "invisible" socks).
Or for me a cheap pink leotard - also when I wear my shorts.
A gay satyr with pink stockings and camo shorts.
Why, that's my usual winter look.
No reason why it can't be extended to arms and chests.

What do other guys think?
A knitted pink (since I'm white - I wouldn't advise fully white wool though) longsleeve top.
And then you can wear your 1001 nice sleeveless tops over it.

I reckon it would look quite fetching.

A long black sleeve warn under a sleeveless t-shirt style works for Me!

It's a bit like a banana in banana-flavored custard, but sure, you can still enjoy peeling it.

Just remember people, no matter what the season:

New Jersey ain't just a place in the US.
Guys get goosebumps too.

I have two closets since I threw my wife out.
Short sleeves go into tge spare closet in winter and come back out when the weather warms up.

I never got the point of wearing a vest. If I want to be warm, I want my arms to be warm too.

So you wouldn't wear one of those Canadian wind-breakers, where the arms stick out?

OK, vests is because we got to wear something.

But that just perplexes me.

Dude, I don't wear pink except for one melon coloured golf shirt. In winter I am partial to golf shirts under a sport jacket or black Northface jacket.

You need a Vest Buddy in the Northern Hemisphere.

Each time the Season changes you just swap clothes. It'll free up loads of room in your wardrobe and shipping costs shouldn't be too much.

Now, what to wear with a pink tutu? I think a tiara is called for.

For sure you'll get goose bumps wearing Jersey in the winter. It's one of those catch the cold air kind of fabrics.
I try to avoid polyester fabrics mostly. Some are nice . But those shiny knits. Errr no.
