I know it has been discussed many times before. But I want to narrow it down because it seems the biggest discussion about this was from all the heavy equipment and pavement guys in that section of the forum. Anyways, right now the guys just wear company T-shirts with our company name on the back and front screen printed on them, and whatever jeans they have, and that is it. But this year, I am considering taking it a step further. I was considering buying everyone kaki dickies work pants, and hats with the company name on them, and they would just continue with the same t-shirts. But then today, I got a collard shirt from BOSS snowplows, and realized that it was pretty nice, looks nice, but I still felt like I could work in it very comfortably. I then noticed that all of the large, national green industry companies all have collard shirts. Now, any of you can say what you want about Brickman, ValleyCrest, TruGreen, Scotts, etc... But I don't think that anyone can deny that they know how to make money, and a lot of it too. The expense of outfitting their thousands of employees with clothing must be a huge undertaking, so it got me thinking. They don't just do that for fun, I'm sure that they have had professionals come in and conduct some sort of market research, and that huge expense was some how justified through their market and consumer research. So my question; In the landscape maintenance industry, do you think that the idea of collared shirts, and kaki pants is worth the expense and trouble of replacement cost and trouble of enforcing the new dress code, etc??? And I understand that it really depends on what we want to do with our companies. I am not asking the guy that is solo, has a full schedule, and is competely content staying right were he is. I am asking the guys that have a crew, or two, or three, and are consistantly looking to grow and expand.
