    My partner and I are in the process of gearing up as well. We are going with Kakhi shorts (jean shorts are too hot). I posted a question a while back and it was recommended to me to use a cotton/polyester blend (it holds its shape and breaths better). My partner likes dark colored shirts (hides dirt better) but I am pushing towards light colors (cooler).

    Dickies work pants and light colored 100% cotton shirts with company name on the front. Dickies are cooler in the summer than jeans and clean better. I/We stay away from shorts too much debris on the legs and Rockport boots on the feet water proof and they also help keep dirt and clippings out of your boots. Everyone dressed the same provides a professional impression.

    We use kakhi pants year round, nothing like a rock being hurled at the shins! Our shirts are cotton t-shirts with our company logo, name, and number on the back. T-shirts are just a lot cooler and feel better than polo shirts do. We are getting some hats, light jackets, and a few dozen polos here around Thanksgiving.

    Khaki shorts

    Gray cotton shirts (with a collar) with green logo's

    The shorts please the employee
    The collar gives the "professional" vibe
    The gray color keeps you cool and sort of hides the stains
