I felt a little goofy the first day i wore steel toe work boots with shorts, but it's worth it cargo shorts are the only way to go.

possibly this shirt and then the hoodie for when it gets cold for my crews. Will most likely be switching to Carharrt pants after reading this thread. I also have the guys wearing steal toe or other durable leathered boots and eye and ear protection with company printed caps for skin protection.

you'd probably have an issue with me then because I don't own a single pair of shorts, not even for personal use. it's jeans when not working and when working its cargo pants I get from kohls.

always short sleeve t shirts.

Funny, seems only the lower rung of LCO run around here in shorts and or tank tops. All the large companies wear long sleeves even in summer. The mexicans know better than to expose skin. You can't apply pesticides with exposed skin either.
