    Looking to buy some t-shirts for the off chance of advertising but also just to look more professional at the jobsite. Thinking of getting dark green shirts with white lettering on the front with business name on upper chest and white lettering on the back with business name and phone number. Anything I'm not thinking of? Is getting green shirts going to end up being too hot? I've thought of getting yellow but didn't think it would look as good. Any help or experience would be great, thanks!

    I love the look of beige shirts and shorts/pants, personally. I find dark green too warm.

    I have dark green polo shirts which can be hot at times but look very professional. Next time I'm thinking beige with green lettering.

    I have both dark green with white lettering and beige with green lettering. Green is definitely hotter. Once I start to sweat, it makes no difference to me what color I have on.

    I was thinking of beige as well but dirt and grease as well as sweat would also show up a lot more on beige than dark green, that was part of my reasoning toward getting dark green.

    I've had red shirts with white lettering and Logo for the last 20 years. One thing I can recommend is to NOT get 100% cotton tees. Once they get soaked with sweat they won't dry out quickly which will make you feel like you're wearing a wet blanket. Get tees that are a 50/50 blend, that way while driving to your next stop they'll dry out and be much more comfortable in the heat.

    My shirts are black. Once it hots 90+ degrees the color makes no difference to me.

    LOL that's like when people ask me isn't it hot with longer hair or a beard and i reply when its this hot and humid its all the same at this point.

    I usually wear a darker grey T shirt and it doesn't show that much dirt or as much as you would think and they are kind of cool.

    +1 A buddy turned me on to the 50/50 blend a couple of years ago, and they are the best shirts ever. Won't own anything else.
