With 14+yrs maturity since creating of this topic, I would say that we should dress properly and shirts should be avoided. Living in sunny area, I wear shorts most of the time but do not wear it while

That's besides the point. There are plenty of old paintings that show Singhs wearing their kasheras. If things have changed in modern times, we shouldn't ignore our history.     

They are out there, so I am sure you will find someone like that, just have too keep looking

Those who follow kachherra rehat, they probably wouldn't wear anything over their kachherra.

I have heard something called a half-stop is allowed if it is called. 

Those who follow strict rehat will not wear pyjama or trousers over their kaccherra.

But then their Singhnis will wear something over the kaccherra.

I mean proper rehit for Singhs is to wear kacchera so obviously this applies in gurdwara as well. Really your knees should be covered.

that's the problem. Strict Singhs see it as being disrespectful to cover kacherras LOL

But seriously, the true rehit is to wear a kacherra. And definitely not a pajama. But obviously, since it gets so cold in countries like UK especially snow maybe there has to be some flexibility?

Look who's saying. 

No wonder sikhs are a laughing stock

Don't you think kachhera is a type of shorts after all and that baabey of certain sampardas only wear kachhera under their chole, chole that hv side split. Same in hazur sahib same in patna sahib.

I'm sure someone will not be wearing shirt and tie if they are wearing bana. So your argument is nonsense again. 

Besides, where will Singh store shastars with shirt and tie?
