thanks, came up with this 8 years ago. wheni went to the county clerks office, i was thinking, "do i really have to look through all these books to see if anyone else has my name?"
you should have heard some of the bombs i was brainstorming..

" hi, this is adam of full green ahead, what can i do for you?".. then ofcourse i get from the older folk, HUH? what? whoodie whatty? is...is adam there?

I have never found a color that doesn't show sweat, what style shirts do you use. collared t-shirt , long sleeve, short sleeve, sleeveless shirts? When we hired US born guys they always wanted T-shirts or sleeveless, the imported guys from down south always preferred the long sleeve shirts. Funny they didn't seem to sweat as much. I always wore the grey or blue collared shirts and tried to get in air conditioning as much as possible. Love your business name though!

s/s t's. its just a given that immigrant workers fair better in the heat. my guy will guzzle "aqua", but never look like he is busting a sweat... however, my nose tells me different.

Just something to think about.

I tried yellow cotton tees.... what a mess!

After one day in the field they looked like a yellow and green dalmation.
Grass stains that would not lift.

What yellow shirts are you having luck with?

Black and Yellow are my colours too(for window cleaning), Navy blue and brown is boring to my eye, sorry.

Down here you would bake with anything black on.
Here you have to wear light or bright colors... otherwise you roast in them.

Red has been a good color for me. Cool because it is bright and dark enough not to show so much filth. The bright Lesco/Athletic/Irish/Shamrock/Varsity green is good too. Not as cool as red, but bearable.
