I buy Wrangler khaki shorts. I love em but I go through a ton of socks from trimming. When the weather gets cooler I wear Dickies khaki pants.

We used to wear khaki BDU's but the khaki color got filthy in no time. So we switched to black BDU's. They look really nice and they feel no hotter than the khaki ones.

Usually Wrangler jeans when it's roughly 70 or below and blue Dickies when it's roughly above 70.

I'm going to be revamping my business strategy this year and I might be switching to tan Dickies and cotton Polo shirts.

i've always worn kahki pants from kohls. they hold up a couple seasons or more.

i don't worry about keeping cool. this job is for people who can handle all types of weather. on those really hot days i just make sure i take lots of breaks and drink lots of water. but i still always wear pants. never shorts. keeps my legs protected when trimming.

I do Dickies tan/twill work pants. Not too heavy, and look good with a green shirt - look like a professional.
