What is your work clothing?

I've wanted to ask for a while on here...What do you guys all wear when you go do cleanups? Mowing? Anything like that. I usually wear khaki shorts, with a bright green neon shirt. Tucked in of course.

Many moons ago.
It was considered you couldn't even DREAM of coming to work in anything less than steel toe boots and chain saw chaps.

That Idiocy held so solid for ages.

Kinda like 'eggs have cholesterol and are bad for you' idiocy.

I do quite a bit of work with irrigation and other water obstacles (docks/ponds etc)
When I wear long pants I prefer Wrangler ripstop cargo pants they dry quick like jungle fatigues.
I do wear Utilikits commonly.
Always Khaki or Olive colors.

I generally do not like cargo shorts, because teenagers always buy them twelve sizes too big and look sloppy in them.
In fact I generally don't like anyone under 25 they all look sloppy with their justin beiber haircuts.

Black double knee dickie's and neon yellow dickie's shirts for just about every thing. The shirts are almost loke soccer jersey material and seem to relect a lot of light, keep cool and ventilate well. It doesn't hurt that they come clean when I wash them. In summer, when temps get 90-110, I wearthe same thing in khahki, but I had a freind punch holes and put some stainless eyelets around the seams in a few places.
