    Hey guys I was wondering where you guys got your shirts/polo's/sweatshirts etc. printed at. Also I was wondering what you guys usually wear, is it a T-shirt and jeans, a polo and khakis etc. ?????????

    Any help would be great!

    Dickies are awsome, u can get a few pairs at walmart (pants)

    We have our shirts made from a local print shop. Just look around your area, I'm sure there are tons of places that print shirts.

    Dickies are good. Just remember image can go a long way by looking neat. Yes we get dirty but if everyone looks uniform it builds better reputation. Local print shops are great sorce for these things I'm lucky enough to coach my sons football team with the owner of great local printing shop and get the "coaches" discount. These operations can help also with design of logos in most cases. And all my guys get a hoodie those cool mournings and fall days they always appreciate them.

    Carhartt carpenter jeans and Carhartt pocket tees. My wife's grandad works at the farmers Co-op and gets them for me on his employee discount. Comfortable and TOUGH. I used to have uniforms at my full time job. I had Dickies jeans with that but they would just rub me raw. Turned them in and went back to Carhartts.

    Do you wear them in the summer? I know they are safer but I too live in Charlotte and I don't need to say how hot it can be.

    Do you wear polo's (golf shirts) or just t-shirts.

    I think I will be wearing t-shirts and carry around a clean polo style shirt just in case I need to meet with a client...
