OK but how much are the shirts and pants you have now. How often do you replace them? due to a tear in the knee. Any thing goes wrong with their cloths or any thing in the catalog they replace it and they give you a shipping label to send it back. I am getting 20% of and free shipping coupons by email every day this time of the year.

If you're concerned about the problem of dirty looking uniforms; stick with DARK EARTH TONES. (i.e. dark green, dark brown, dark gray.)

Great point!!! I didn't think of that one!!! The down-side of wearing dark colors outside, is that dark colors absorb heat, whereas light colors reflect heat.

May sound crazy, but check out what the cops, firemen, and military wear for uniforms......figure they deal with dirt, stains, sweat, etc etc all day. Personally my pants are Blauer street gear or 5.11 BDU pants and hold up well against dirt and such. The blauer street gear has whats called 3x dry technology, wicks away water and dries fast internally from sweat. Im planning on adding safety green cotton and under armour shirts in 2014
