    We have Khaki Dickies 874's and Irish Green T-Shirts, with managers having Kelly Green Polos with their names on them. Optional Khaki hats and matching brown belts....I'm picky like a woman when it comes to uniforms too haha

    Horrible camera pic, but I'm too lazy to lay out a formal spread tonight...

    We get our shirts from customink, like I said the 874 dark blue dickies, and I personally wear a Koppen grey 'No fly boonie' it has built in bug protection. You'd be really surprised at the difference just keeping the sun out of your face makes!

    ya it is a good contrast.... sudo UVA colors even though I'm a UM guy.... I don't care for the safety green, but we do a lot of roadside mowing and the orange stands out good.

    At the beginning of the year, we were going with a uniform company called Unifirst uniform rental, you rent the shirts, and they wash them every week. my boss picked out hi-viz work shirts, and ordered the shirts plus patches, we were given temporary uniforms without patches while the real ones were being made.

    The process took 2 months, and a ton of bullshit, my boss called the sales guy and bitched him out every other day about where his uniforms were, and the guy finally told him that because we do landscaping, we are too high of a liability for them, since they thought we would ruin shirts every week.

    He told us to keep the temps, and that was the end of that.

    We sell a lot of tan pants. Light and very versatile, you can pick from a variety of colors to go with it. Light colors make it easier in the sun
