    Dressing comfortable while upholding a professional image and maintaining that apearance with quality work and customer satisfaction is how you suceed. If tank tops is accepted by the well paying clients in your area then by all means...go that route.

    youre going to sweat like crazy no matter what youre wearing. I do silk screened tshirts. Theyre cheap, and they last a year or 2.

    I wasn't calling you or your quality of work unprofessional, didn't mean for it to come across that way. Lucky for me I have a girl that likes my farmer tan. I'm not personally a big fan of polo shirts or the Dickie button down shirts either.

    A shirt with a collar may help preventing your neck from getting sunburned, just a thought

    Cool max logo shirts in the big heat, cotton t's logo spring and fall with a logo sweatshirt. Usually quite dirty considering I change and maybe sharpen blades and grease everything up first thing. But they are all safety yellow(except the hoody, forest green) so the brightness over powers the dirt I think.....

    T-Shirts for work. Polo for Estimates. As far as T-Shirts are concerned, we've been screen printing them ourselves for the past 4 years and have had pretty good luck. Were getting a year or so out of each batch before they're getting too fade to wear on high end properties.

    :usflag:I just wanted to let everyone know that if your looking for tshirts or polos go to www.queensboro.com

    They have a 10 year warranty. My shirts faded after about a year ( because i sweat like a Pig ). I called and mentioned it to the girl on the phone and she said send them back. No more Questions. Now I just need to find the time and will to get up and mail them. Plus they are Cheap and have a lot of Quality Material. I"m Hooked!!!!
