    I work on pools so my uniform consist of swim trunk/ tank top/ flip flops. During the late fall or winter I wear summer weight BDU pants (the clothing that the military wears) and a long sleeve t-shirt. For the summer you might try Nike Dri-Fit T-shirts; they come in long sleeve and short sleeve.

    I wear shorts made of a supplex type material most of the time. When it is cooler I wear khaki BDU pants. They are light weight cool and very comfortable.

    Jeans, Steel Toe Boots, Company T, and a Baseball Cap. If it is really hot where sneakers instead of boots, but I am actually more comfortable in my boots as long as it isn't too hot. If I am strictly mowing and it is very hot I'll wear khaki shorts, but wear pants whenever I trim. I try to limit my work when it is very hot. I have extra availability in my schedule which allows me to avoid the hotest parts of the day.

    Wear my uniform that consists of lightweight cargo shorts and company T, and usually tennis shoes in the summer. Winter is usually carhartt workpants, boots, still a company T, and company carhartt jacket.

    My company tshirt, jean shorts, and tennis shoes. I have problems with my arches and wearing boots will really hurt me by the end of the day. Headphones and eye protectors. Sometimes a hat.

    Company tshirt or sweatshirt
    Dickies workpants or khacki shorts
    steel toe hiking boots
    for a hat I wear one that I bought from the rain forest cafe. It is a wide brim kind of outback hat. It keeps my ears, nose, face, and neck from burning. Best tool in the box
