    I wear Pointer Bib Overauls and I got 6 polo shirts from Cabelas all the same color. I didnt go for a logo on my shirts because of wearing Bibs they cover up most of the area that you would see for advertising

    I wear Charcoal colored cargo/utility shorts made of Carhart style material.
    They are tuff, useful, hide dirt well and look good.

    On top, I wear red polo/golf shirts.

    Me and all my equipment match.

    As far as cold weather wear goes, I need to upgrade there. I used to wear black work clothes, but have since went to the 'service uniform' look. Navy pants, light blue button shirt, navy jacket and hat. Just brand name uniforms. I don't like the look though and they are not all that warm.

    If I continue to run red gear next year, I will go for some warm charcoal bottoms and find some sort of red tops. Maybe heavy pull-overs, something...

    Carhartt jeans
    Merrill hikers
    Cabelas shirts/windbreakers and jackets w/embroidery.

    Cabelas is great if you are considering some clothing. Not sure how the pants are but I can vouch for the uppers.

    weather permitting I wear khaki cargo shorts with a gray t-shirt with my logo on front and back. When temps drop I wear blue jeans, co. t-shirt and jacket which has company name on front. Wearing shorts can be rough on the legs when trimming, but I prefer that to wearing jeans all summer.

    Carhartt is what to wear when you want your clothes to last.

    Used to wear Dickies pants and long sleeve shirts. Breathed better than jeans in summer and allowed more freedom of movement.
