    For the workers I'd go with a darker color, just to keep them cleaner. Khaki gets dirty real easy. For the managers / estimators I'd stay with Khakis and also make sure you're wearing a colored shirt.

    In our company there is one dress code for workers and another for management/estimators. For one, it's more professional that way. For two, I have always believed that the client or anyone walking or driving by should be able to tell, just by looking, who the project manager is on any given jobsite. The more professional and clean look of the project manager sets him apart from the rest of the crew. It also helps create a little more respect from the workers too.

    I agree, driving by and seeing a crew working in a uniform says positive things about the company. Yes, khaki pants look better and will be cooler than green. Dark green was one of the colors that did "very well" when they were testing the early home made solar collectors, since it absorbs certain frequencies. Don't ignore the outdoor market, the modern materials are tough. The new nylon type pants are breezy in the Florida heat.
    I'm not sure if it would make sense or not, but does anyone use the pants that zip off into shorts? This is one company that deals with closeouts, campmor.com is another.
