Only from the waist up.  Can we assume no pants?
Well...I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer

I usually use bleach as a sanitizer (I work for the country's largest bleach marketer). So I need a shirt that'll take being splashed w/bleach solutions.  That said - a few shirts have been thrown out and now I have a few "brew day" shirts. :)

The best one is one that was "ruined" but then bleached until it became homogeneous.

I thought strange ingredients at first, brewing a tire?

My only hard and fast rule is no shoes so I can tell when I forgot to close the ball valve on my mash tun. Generally the brew day begins in pajama pants, then I usually end up getting dressed to grab food before the day is over.

Usually sweats.  I've got an awesome pair of orange sweat pants.  They even have pockets.

I usually use bleach as a sanitizer (I work for the country's largest bleach marketer). So I need a shirt that'll take being splashed w/bleach solutions. 

I have a couple lab coats I used to wear when I used bleach.  Felt like a total nerd.  Don't use bleach anymore, but sometimes I throw the lab coat on when I'm using the table saw.  Keeps me from being covered in saw dust.

I've always imagined Denny brewing (and most often existing) in a utilikilt.
