Shirt(redirected from in one's shirt-sleeves)
Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus.
Any type of clothing, especially shirts, generally represent our worldly appearance or status. At times, they may represent our attitudes toward ourselves and others. Mostly, they represent the way that we appear to the world. They are not symbolic of our private self but rather of our public self. A poor man wears a different shirt than a rich man. A doctor wears a different shirt than a carpenter. The type of clothing that we wear varies form situation to situation. The type of shirts being worn will give you clues to the meaning of the dream and to your unconscious ideas about yourself and others. If you are putting on many shirts, it suggests that you are somewhat confused about what you want to be or how you want others to see you.
