Okay. If your arms get itchy from picking beans, but you'd rather not put a long sleeved shirt on. And you have short arms and a son with big feet, who has worn a hole in his socks... This is my solution. I cut the toes of his old socks open, and voila, arm protection! As long as I don't mind the hole in one "elbow"! And no, his feet really aren't particularly big, but it's a longish pair of socks.
