Question Lawn Care Apparel Market Research

Hello everyone, hope you all are having a great profitable year out there! I am conducting some Market research in order to deliver better outdoor working apparel to the marketplace. I would sincerely appreciate any feedback you have in regards to the type of clothing you prefer to wear, from style, material, brands etc. Also, if you have any suggestions or ideas that would make the apparel better for you I would like to know that too. This includes all apparel you wear from head to toe! Again hope you all are having a great year!

We are a big fan of the the 50/50 cotton poly blend shirts.

As for shorts, we just go to the good-will and buy pleated brown shorts. Makes the cost justifiable considering they will be destroyed. That and they are semi-proffesional looking.

As for pants, I'd buy something light-weight with a draw-string type of waist. Either a heavier denim, or a 50/50 blend again for hot days. Belts don't work too well for me personally as I have no hiney!

In the hot summer weather we like to wear very light weight T-shirts.

The only negative is they dont last quite as long as the heavier weight T-shirts.

Under Armour golf pants, polo shirts, socks and underwear. The weather is brutal in Houston so I rely on moisture wicking products for any bit of relief that I can get.

Light weight, baggy, long sleeved shirts and shorts... would love a headband with a visor that covers the sunglasses from glare, providing coverage even when the sun is behind you at that awkward angle over the ear... and a pair of sun glasses that have wicking material every where they touch the face and allow air through as well... otherwise I guess any ol' thing will do...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
