For the record, it is what works for you. You need to be safe though.....are you using anything mechanical like a lathe or buggo torch? Tuck it in or get it caught in something.....I do a lot of mining equipment.....on a creeper.....on the floor, up side down gauging/washing of welds and welding drill. Sucks rolling over your shirt tail with the creeper......I'm also they guy that isn't afraid to buy $200 steel tow boots to protect my feet. I always use earplugs whether to filter out noise, bs or keep sparks out of my ears. What is your priority? I plan on being a welder for a long time. If you take the OSHA ten hour course they describe a lot of safety hazards that people disobey because of the "macho" effect.....I know who I am , I try to do things the proper way, tucking a shirt in gives a professional look IMHO. I won't personally think any less of anyone that doesn't tuck it in but ripped/torn clothing, broken/ untied shoe laces, no safety glasses/shields get the attention of certain people. I've learned from mistakes. A tucked in shirt may not be a hazard all the time.....I got used to tucking it in. Do what works for you. I try to keep myself, my bosses and the safety guys happy. Not just one way to do it.....just be safe, have fun and enjoy the most awesome job out there. Dave
