    gray T...
    but don't get gray sweatshirts - they got dirty (mud etc) in a sec. and not getting changed every day - looks nasty

    khaki or a lighter orange is a good way to go. the orange makes the workers more visible.

    I haven't read all of the posts - but my $.02 is:
    Athletic gray collared polos with a pocket. The company info is silk screened over the left breast where the pocket is at - then across the back in large bold letters for the vision impaired and old folks the same company info that is on the front.
    I used to "assign" shirts meaning each one had that particular employee's name - more for dispute resolution. Meaning if a client had a problem with one of my employees all they had to do was get the name but no one ever did.
    So now I buy in bulk one time per year, thirty shirts silk screened at $6.25 each.
    All employees have to pass muster each morning, clean shirts, neat appearance, boots in good shape, etc. So if one has a messed up shirt I simply swap it out with a new one - everyone is allowed eight shirts per year.
    I buy the uniform pants on-line from used commercial clothes dealers - like Cinta.
    Cost is $2.95 for pants in decent shape and I buy ten per year.

    We've been using the grey but plan on switching. I think I will prefer the bright green this time around.

    we had Blue then a company got them ,went gray so someone got them
    now we got high vis and yep guess what, they got them 3 days later so next swap is wifes turn she says go egg plant purple with lime flower petals this will go uncoppied and maybe we can stay original. oh cost well it has been 200.00 for 24 shirts also high vis, is nice when you want to be seen but the bees find you better tooand they stain easy and nothing can clean them ....i now know how hard the city guys work considering their shirts are clean at 5:00 and our guys look like bums lol
