You know the look. Tan in the face (minus the area covered by sunglasses), neck and below the elbows, pasty white everywhere else. Gross or manly? I've had one for years from working outside. I also get a raccoon mask from wearing oakleys. Girlfriend says it's gross and insists I do something about it this year.

Depends –– did you earn it?

_MaH

ETA: Now that I see we have details about where this question comes from, my suggestion is this:

Dump the dumb broad who's self-esteem is so shot that she's so chronicly concerned about not just the way she looks, but the way you do to.  Let her go find her Justin Timberlake or Twilight-Edward-The-Vegetarian-Vampire jelly-spined, tree hugging, fur hating faggot excuse for a man.

You're a real man, and you're looking for a real woman.  Save yourself for the woman who wants to shred your clothes off when you get home, not the little girl who waits to bitch about how you look after working to support them.

ETA 2: If she's complaining about your tan, then real life and the true responsibilities of it haven't quite hit her yet, or hard enough.

After she's done telling you where you need to get tanned, is she going to pick out all of your clothes too?

Tell her it means you have a job, and that she needs to learn to love it.

Nothing wrong with a farmer's tan.

My wife hates the farmers tan.



She will just have to live with it because I'm not going to fake-n-bake, or lay out like she dose.

So do something about it. Get a girlfriend thats not a self absorbed bitch. That'll teach her.

As you get older the demand changes. "Put on some sunscreen now!!!"

Tell her to pay for the fake bake if she wants you tan.

The worst is when spring rolls around and all my friends have a snowboarding goggle raccoon mask tans and the rest of them is pasty white except for their heads.

Farmer tans on the other hand are perfectly acceptable. Guys work outside, they don't go tanning for the hell of it.

I'm Latino so I just get darker and don't really have noticeable tan lines.

Show up at the family/friends BBQ or pool party in a speedo.  Ask her how she likes your attempt to work on eliminating the farmer tan.  WIN!!

If you earned your "farmers tan", then IMHO, you have the right to rock it proudly.


That will be all.

I don't tan, I go from black-light reactive white to lobster red, no middle ground. When I go outside I wear SPF50 with a physical blocker in it and a hat...the sun is trying to kill me

Yeah, I got that going on, reasonably tan arms and head, fishbelly-white torso. I need to spend more time outside shirtless, I reckon.

My wife said it's sexy, because it's not some gay-dancer shake-on tan look, and reminds her that her man is actually a man that works, and sweats, and is doing something instead of sun-worshipping like a chick.

I say keep the tan, lose the superficial girlfriend.

I always end up with a farmers tan.  Wife thinks I need to take more clothes off when I'm outside working but I can't at work and at home there is this thing called poison Ivy that seems to find its way onto me.

"even tans" are for single guys who have to worry about girls. Married working men have no time or need for such nonsense.

No mention of construction feet?

When I was framing I wore shorts and no shirt all summer long. I was very tan everywhere except  my feet from the socks down. I couldn't wear half socks because saw dust  would pile up around the top of the socks and work down into the sock, so I wore regular crew socks. So when I went swimming, or to the lake I was tan all over except for my feet from about 3" above the ankle to my toes which were scary white.
