Clothes for teaching.

From what I can gather men should not wear short sleeved  shirts in Saudi Arabia. So I guess for teachers its long sleeved shirts and ties? Will I need to wear a jacket? Any advice on this topic from male teachers  will be appreciated.

Men where I work who wear western attire do wear short sleeved shirts, ties, and dress pants. I've never seen anyone in a jacket, due to the heat.

Yes, half sleeve is not an issue at all.

I'm not a teacher but I wear jacket throughout the year because it not only looks good, but also it keeps me feeling confident that I;m well-dressed.

Arabs (coz of their food may be) feel the heat more than others and they lower down the temperarture of ACs in the peak summer. I do need a jacket then :(

regardles of what the internet says also in general, shorts and short sleeves are ok in public btw.

unless you have alot of tattoos lol. then you should at least cover the big ones.

And that also in the comparatively more lenient city Jeddah; right? That's why they didn't comment on the forarm tatoo and piercings.
