    Mine is pretty common: hunter green polo shirt, and khaki cargo shorts. I think olive green shorts with a tan polo would look pretty sharp.

    We have kelly green polos for mgmnt and t-shirts for hourly guys and tan shorts or dickies. We tried the dry-fit type shirts last year but they didn't holdup so we went back to cotton.

    I HAD THE ORANGE FIRST!!! You're not allowed to have it.... everyone around here is wearing them now :/ They are great shirts though. You POP out where ever you go

    We where t shirts with our logos. I don't require a particular pair of pants as long as they don't have holes.

    Tan is a good color, however, I prefer a bright color for attention and safety like a bright yellow or gold. In addition, just about any color scheme you want to put on those colors really stand out and is great for advertisement, makes people look twice. It has worked for me.

    I am in the process of ordering some tees, here is what I am looking at. Still working on a few rough drafts. If you are wondering I am going thru "www.customink.com"

    Guess I'm not as picky as some of you. Our policy is our high vis orange t-shirts with logo on left chest and across the back, with long jeans and boots. Shorts are for going out in the evening, NOT working in lol.

    My uniform idea (as I am still getting ready to open for business next summer) is the following:

    I will have a company style hat (hey, they were free)
    High vis green tee (custom designed for my business)
    Pants (I prefer dark blue style jeans)

    I am also picking up a set of steel "toe caps".

    You won't need the steel toes, unless you plan on sticking your boots under the deck of the mower, I've even ran over my foot with my mower, not under the deck, (Don't ask) and no damage except a scuffed up boot LOL a good pr of regular boots will suffice fine, definitely not tennis shoes though.

    That's another good reason why we should mow high...
