The other half days you cannot wear a jumper without a t-shirt underneath but then complains he's too hot. I wear a jumper but no t-shirt underneath
Whose right

I wear a t-shirt and jumper. If I'm too hot I remove jumper. Hardly rocket science.

I'm with your other half grin

He's right.

You can wear a t-shirt under a jumper.
You can weat a jumper with no base layer.

He should wear a vest under a jumper, or a long sleeve t-shirt. Or a tshirt with hoody or cardigan, then he can adjust the zip as the day goes on.

Jumpers are top layers. T-shirts base/ mid layers. He needs a base layer that's thinner (such as the Sheldon Cooper look). Jumper with nothing else shock but what do you do when you get warmer in public? (Or have hot flushes)

He's right. Otherwise you'd have to wash your jumpers after every wear.

Your partner is right.

First time I've ever posted that on MN BTW

He's right - of course a jumper is a top layer, so you wear a T shirt underneath.

You layer up - get hot, take top layer off, get cold, put it back on.

If it's hot enough to wear only one layer then it would be a T shirt only.

I'm wearing a tshirt under a hoody, as I type. It's only a light hoody, though.

Sometimes I don't wear a tshirt under a jumper.

I like to mix it up a bit. Wild!

TestingTestingWonTooFree Sun 16-Apr-17 17:48:38

You can wear a jumper, a t shirt or both. I'd say you can't wear a cardigan or zip up hoody without a layer underneath.

KirstyJC Sun 16-Apr-17 17:48:41

Oooh yes and you would need to wash the jumper every wear. (Rather than wear the same one on/off for about 3 weeks.......!)

expatinscotland Sun 16-Apr-17 17:48:43

He is right of course.

Maudlinmaud Sun 16-Apr-17 17:49:03

Depends what kind of jumper. Polo necks, cowl necks, v necks etc no jumper. Sometimes I wear a shirt and jumper.

HermioneJeanGranger Sun 16-Apr-17 17:49:16

He's right - sorry!

Maudlinmaud Sun 16-Apr-17 17:50:05

I meant no t shirt / vest under. [Tbugrin] wine

harderandharder2breathe Sun 16-Apr-17 17:50:23

He's right but I'm very warm blooded so my jumpers only ever go on for five minutes before I'm too warm so I need the t shirt to stay decent

MewlingQuim Sun 16-Apr-17 17:51:09

In my youth I would never have worn a jumper without something underneath so I could take the jumper off if I got too hot. I faint if I overheat which is very embarrassing, as is having to sit around in just a bra.

Now I am a middle aged lady I wear cardigans instead <prim>

thedevilinablackdress Sun 16-Apr-17 17:51:15

Yup, he's right. A t-shirt at least, usually long sleeved. And a vest, always a vest. Till June.

SLLM Sun 16-Apr-17 17:53:20

But what if it was warm enough for just the jumper and any extra layers made you hotter shock I've genuinely never worn a t shirt under a jumper blush

PlasticLamp Sun 16-Apr-17 17:54:57

I never wear jumpers without a t-shirt underneath. It would be really weird. What if I got too warm?

thedevilinablackdress Sun 16-Apr-17 17:56:38

If he's too hot in that combi then a shirt over a t shirt or a cotton sweatshirt instead of a jumper? I'd find no t shirt under a jumper itchy and wierdly a bit sweaty. And as PP said they'd need washed more often which would reduce the lifespan

HermioneJeanGranger Sun 16-Apr-17 17:57:30

I've never worn a jumper without a t-shirt underneath shock

thedevilinablackdress Sun 16-Apr-17 17:59:19

And yes, layers! As Plastic says, what happens if you are too hot in your jumper?

It's not primness which turns us to cardis (I'm wearing a zipped hoody one, not a twinset type thing) - its because meno buggers temperature regulation.
