    shorts, sneakers, flip flops and crocs are a no no with me as well.

    I'm solo now but if I were to hire help you WILL wear khaki pants, some form of work boot, company SHORT SLEEVED (not sleeveless) t shirts, eye protection and ear protection......

    T-Shirts/ uniforms.
    Costco jeans.
    Stihl LawnGrips aka steel toe boots.
    Tinted sunglasses.
    Peltor Worktunes.
    Cap embroidered with my company's name.

    All this stuff weighs about 2 pounds extra but, better be safe than sorry!

    I use fishing gear from Bass Pro ( XPS Extreme Performance Series). It has SPF 30 or 50 and when you sweat, the gear dries very fast. It is also stain resistance, so grass stains are non existent.

    Also another plus is that it helps you to maintain a neat appearance. You don't have to look dirty all the time.

    Usually I wear jeans when I'm doing clean ups cuz its still a little chilly out. During the summer I wear cargo shorts.

    Company T-shirt or polo shirt, cargo shorts, Merrel hiking boots, sunglasses, baseball or shade hat and tons of sun screen. Crocs or sandals will never happen in my company!

    I'm thinking about getting the Columbia PFG green colored long sleeve shirt. They breathe well. And plus i can always go fishing after work :)
