Default What is your work attire?

Looking to get some new work boot, pants and shirts.
I love the polo shirts, t-shirts cargos pants, Carhart pants. But what looks the best.

I am also looking for some good recommendations on shoes. I do 95% resi work and 5% commercial. I like boots that are easy to walk work and be nimble in.

thanks

Plain white t-shirt, tucked into some solid color BDU's and a pair of these:

I've put these boots through hell the past 3 years and they're beginning to show it. Best 130 bucks I spent on boots so far. No silly coolmax material, just leather and cordura nylon, keeps my feet cool like no other, (boot that is). Relatively light, and definitely flexible around the ankle.

You can buy them direct from Altama at www.altama.com

Are you insinuating that Marc is some kind of cross dresser at night?

Not at all. He just has a strange fixation with all things homosexual for some reason.

I saw a fella from Mister Electric today at the supply house. He looked pretty proffesional but not very comfortable. Polyblend pants and shirt. I liked the American flag on his arm.
I wear grey carhart carpenter pants and either a black or red pocket t shirt, w company logo. And redwing boots on my feet.
