Telling new business owners it's OK to roll up wearing trashed clothing is absurd. Guys that have a reputation with a LONG list of references can pull the "I just climbed out of the garbage can" look but new guys need to sell an image..... what kind of image is up to them
from day one in business all i've ever showed up in to do estimates is either my jeans and a t shirt or my gray cargo's and company shirt which 9 times out of 10 has a dirt, grease or grass stain on it.
your point is not missed, in fact it's very well taken. and yes what image they want to sell is up to them. but they need to be aware of what images have worked.
i'm saying the not so spotless image has worked just fine for me. so it might work fine for others.
