Go to Walmart and get the Burnt Orange or Orange T-Shirts. They will serve as a good safety color for when you are mowing close to the road. The burnt orange is not as reflective but does look a little classier and show less dirt than the bright orange.

well beseen after i challanged you to design me a shirt graphic and ask what your setupand design dee was and what the price per 24 and what the shipping to TN was i could only assume you could read i WANTED shirts , also pleas dont use part of my quotes to fill your needs post what i said in full and not what you want it to say ,this is slandering . The challange to you was to design me a cool look for our new Lawn guys shrits i didnt slander or even come close so forget the idea ,in our e-mail i even left it on the table by stating i hadn't changed my mind if you can print me my request would be glad to look it over STILL.

see you mentioned loosing your sponsership here so i even requested it through your web-site personally , to see if we could get them printed . and again you said NO

i didnt slander your business ,just feel sorry you are losing $$$$ for not excepting work .

here is a tip next time you assume its a business to business challenge read the rest of it , we cut lawns alot of them so we dont hsve time to print shirts too.
good luck in your future. simply put , you have my contact info if you change your mind and cna address our needs its your choice , always has been .

My shirts are a charcoal/dark grey light-weight tshirt and also have polos made in the same color with an embroidered logo. They're professional looking and different than what most people wear.

we have lime green shirts with black lettering...our truck is white with lime green lettering and our trailer is lime green with white lettering...it actually looks good because the trailer was professionally painted and the lettering was put on by a professional as well, but i always second guess the professionalism of the color...it's a great color to get noticed i just don't feel it's professional...i'm wanting to change but still might keep the lime green

other choices:

Forrest Green with silver lettering
Gray with forrest green lettering
Red with silver lettering

not to hijack the thread but if anyone has any input let me know...

We run orange shirts and they look fine. Great for safety too.
When bidding or meeting new clients I have black polos with orange writting
wear with khaki pants
