Comments: There may be something "to" it

Haven't I said time and time again that men in "work" clothes (ie boots) with that working hard look to them (ie construction workers) are just totally hot looking to women?

It shows that they are not afraid to get dirty and work hard. Something that women love!

See, I told you that you would soon have women all over you.

Yeah, ya got that rugged thing goin' on.

I've found the other end of the spectrum has it's perks, too. When I stop somewhere on the way home from the bank with my spiffy suit & tie, it seems like the cheer from the gals behind the counter is just a LITTLE cheerier.

Dames is SO shallow ;-)

Damn right! Construction guys, firefighters, sailors, cops, cowboys and, uh, there *was* a guy in a suit in The Village People, right?

Only joking, Harvey. Suits work for me :-)

Johnny, manual labour, especially intelligent work, does something special for a woman. It's a reflex to the whole "provider/protector" thing, which pre-dates feminism. Or maybe us wimmen-folk developed this attitude because a "working man" was a good bet. I don't know. As a child, my first crush was the guy from the "Little House on the Prairie" books. He built houses! He shot dinner! He found his way back home in blizzards!

You need to listen to your sisters. We have excellent taste. ;-)

And you're right Harvey - both ends of the spectrum work really well for me.......

I have to say that as far as guys looking good in work gear goes it's less about the gear and more about how he wears his grime.
Johnny has always had a sort of "this is my dirt-I've earned the right to wear it" quality and he does it quite well.

I should add that when I'm wearing my workboots (same as Johnny's) jeans and work shirt...I have a few women checking me out too. But they aren't the "pretty ladies at the mini-mart" type. They are more of the "Harley T-Shirt, two tone buzz cut, Melissa Etheridge belt buckle the size of my head" type. And when I wear my work gear they want me bad...and my boyfriend gets a big kick out of it.
