Why do painters wear white???
It's just weird since white is the easiest to get dirty.
Probably for the same reason medical professionals wear white or other light, pastel colors...
...they look "cleaner" than other colors.
Even though the painter does inevitably get some of his "tools" on his attire, at least he still looks like a reasonably clean person. While most people probably prefer to paint in an old t-shirt and a pair of ratty jeans, you wouldn't want someone coming to your house and presenting themselves looking that way, would you?
White does speak to the concept of a clean appearance. At the same time, I think white was a practical choice in that painters knew they would get stains on them over time. By using white apparel, they are able to not only wash the clothing but also bleach it to help remove the staining from the paint. WB
Painters wear white for a number of reasons. It is a bit of a warning to everyone else, if you see a painter you tend not to touch anything. It looks much more professional when a bunch of painters turn up to a job wearing white as oppose to every one wearing whatever colour they want. What if all painters wore red or blue they would all still be wearing different shades of red or blue and they would fade at different levels. You can bleach your whites clean without fading. Most colours used when painting are a light colour, so if youre wearing any other colour than white its going to show a lot more. Temperature wise its also the coolest colour to wear outside.

As I get older (grandmother), I am aware that some of my clothes are outdated and do not look age appropriate for me. I still like to look fashionable, but do not want to put people off by wearing things that look like I am trying to turn back the years too far. What do you think?
