company dress code?

just wondering, do any of you have a company dress code? maybe just company shirts or something you get everyone to wear?

I'd like some input on how to help make my crew look more professional, and feel comfortable doing so. my current idea for dress code, is basically, light pants, any kind is fine, tan shirts with the company name and logo on them, and good sturdy boots.

Company issued Khaki Pants/Shorts (depending on weather), khaki hats with company name and www address, red tee-shirt with company name, logo, phone in white, Georgia Boots. Crew mangers Crew Polo with company name and www address. Also red sweatshirts with company name logo, phone. etc. The reason for the red and white is that is our "company" colors and all ofmy company trucks are red with white lettering also. Plus it stands out when on a property.

Company Tees and hats here, prefer khaki shorts when hot but don't get bent about that, just wear the shirt and hat. Saftey shoes, Have not required them but rethought that after telling fella to go home come back NOT wearing sandals, WOW!!!! whats up with that? I never ever would of thought of wearing crap like that when I worked in the factory and they didn't require steel toes.

hats are HIGHLY advised to be used, as long as anything they say is in good taste, or its a brimmed hat, its fine by me.

Boots are not that important, If you cat your foot under a mower your toast anyway...


Living in Texas Shorts are ok, But you must keep your shirt on,,,

Nothing raggedly

I just finished ordering tan button down single pocket shirts with company name embroidered over the pocket with a cap for doing estimates. Will prob end up using t-shirts for mowing and such with shorts or pants.
