    T shirt and blue jeans. Shorts are crazy for trimming.

    I wear cotton t shirts most of the time when I'm mowing, and cotton polos when I'm on the golf course during the day. I may try some of the under armour shirts that are supposed to keep you cooler this summer and see how good they really work

    When it gets really hot....the sleeves come off the tshirt. I gotta wear jeans though...I hate getting my legs all cut up from trimming.

    T shirt and shorts. Trimming isn't to bad generally if you angle the debree away from your legs.

    I took a vote with my employees on what they wanted to wear during the hot summer months and they chose tank tops and thats what they got. I ordered 5 tanks for each employee there red with white company lettering on the front and back in large letters. In cooler parts of season, early spring or fall they have red polo shirts with company embroidery. All of my customers like the tank tops and can't understand why no one else is wearing them. Most of the crews in are area wear t-shirts w/company name but during the summer they roll up their sleeves or just take them off all together.

    I wear a cotton short sleeve shirt, an Under Armor Coolmax? shirt, and blue jeans and work boots. The UnderArmor shirt doesn't help if there's no breeze, but if there is any air moving at all it's great.

    I have company logo t-shirts, sleeveless shirts, and sweatshirts. All of them are made from cotton.
