I'm gonna guess...True Green? Yeah, the dress code sucked.....I had to shave off my goatee, take out my earrings and wear a freakin' white dress shirt while working.

Dude, it was ridiculous. A white dress shirt??? It got dirty the first time you wore it and no matter how much you washed it, it never came totally clean again. I think that looked worse than picking another colored shirt that would have hid stains a little better. Besides the fact that it would be about 95 degrees and the shirts were crap and were itchy as hell.

Believe me, I'm all about appearance. Myself as well as all employees wear clean company shirts as well as khaki pants or shorts. When I meet with important clients I wear a polo. We also have sweatshirts and hats.
