    Uniform service (blue/white button up shirt and dark blue pants), Irish Setter boots. I also wear a Leatherman Wave and a flashlight.
    Anyone can tear a man down, few can build one up.

      we have a uniform co and we use blue pants light blue striped shirts . but i get Dickie's carpenter pants because the regular uniform pants dont fit and will wear out in less then a 1/2 year . we get 10 short sleeve ,10 long sleeve shirts 10 pair of pants , 2 jackets and the uniforms cleaned but i only get 10 short sleeve shirts dont do long sleeve . the pay me to get my pants .

      we are the only ones on job sites with uniforms ,boss says it looks professorial

        here in the tropics a stateside "uniform" just makes no sense. there is 1 plumber here on the rock that wears the long pants, heavy shirt and boots. i've done a couple of jobs with him and by 10:00-!0:30 he's sweated through his clothes and looks like a thug or a really clean shaven homeless guy.

        now on a good/bad day i'll go through 3-4 shirts and maybe 2 pair shorts. i do sweat a lot but i try to be presentable for the client. but for the most part they are more concerned that i get there and get the job done rather than the way i look.

        just my $.02 before taxes

              For the guy needing a size 35 you might try these in a 34 as they are full cut and run on the big side. If any of you need a wild inseam they will hem per your needs if you're willing to give them a little time to do it.

              I like the 2501 as they have room to move and not cut a man's gems off. No low rise crack showing for me. NO way.
