    What do you think about Cut-Off or Tank top shirts. Do you think they are a good idea for. i have seen lcos out there with tanks in and they look bad, and some with cut offs and they dont look that bad.

    I think it would be ok. most of my customers are understanding abpout the type of heat i work in and no shirt or sleaves does not bother them, just have it be a company shirt with your logo on it and tuck it in.

    if you put your logo on it, and maybe not go white, it looks alright, but if its all sweaty dirty and not lettered, it looks bad.

    When you say cut-offs do you mean the bottom or the sleeves?
    If you do mean the bottom I think that's kind of sloppy. If you mean the sleeves then I think that would be ok. As long as they are silk screened with your company name and the shirts are made without sleeves not cut off with a scissors. We had 3 types last year regular T's, sleeveless, and tanks. I will never buy tanks again they look like crap. I didn't think they would look that bad when I ordered them. But once the guys started wearing them.......:rolleyes: not good, real low class IMHO.

    I wear tanks. Tuck 'em in and they don't look half bad. I think the way you present yourself says more about you than the clothes you wear (within reason!) and tanks are a good alternative for those warm days.

    You all say that taking your shirt off to work is scrubby, I think the tank tops look a hundred times worse.

    Looks aside not having a two or three inch sleave would be that much cooler plus you need that sleave in case your nose starts to run ha ha

    Cut off sleeves w/logo a must. No tanks.

    I have worn tanks for the last 2 season for tanning reasons, but my opinion could change on this matter an business continues to grow and expand.
