    If I were you I would concentrate my money on advertising. Uniforms are a waste of money at this point in the game for you... you will get a better ROI doing more advertising.... flyers, yellow pages, radio, website, or whatever.

    I Would Focus On Advertising When Just Getting Started.with That Said I Would At Least Get Some Tshirts With Your Logo. Imo It Is Very Unproffesional To See A Yard Full Of Guys With Shirts Off,cut Off Sllevless Budweiser Shirts Etc... Personally We Use Unifirst Uniform Company It Is About $10 A Week Per Guy And I Just Take It Out Of Their Checks. My Guys Love Them.

    Uniforms have nothing to do with ROI, they have to do with image.

    A good image will give you credibility. A bad image, well who knows what it will do.

    Anyways to answer the question - I wear a company shirt, tan or brown khaki shorts, and boots.

    I saw an LCO today consisting of 2 guys. They had on red t-shirts and hats / visor. It looked good.
