I only will wear jeans if I am on some kind of rough wire or doing really dirty work. They dont look to proffesional IMO. But to each his own.
The Mr Electric dude looked ok but that whole type of uniform is outdated in my opinion. All he needed was a hat and he would look just like one of those old style service men from the 50's that you would see in a gas station or like a good humor man or better yet the Maytag man.

my point about the polyester was 70-e.
i can understand what your saying about looking professional if you have to deal with the public.
i thankfully dont have to deal with the public, imo most public suck.

i think a uniform looks good. looks a lot more professional than a guy in ripped jeans and a dirty shirt.

If I am meeting people to talk business I like to infuse the collar shirt and khaki action. Working its usually supply house freebie shirt and ****ies, oh and I wear sneakers every chance I get. Boots when I feel its necessary, but those sneakers are always in the van.

Ha they censored ****ies.....sucks if a rep wants to post here.....

There are ways around getting Díckíes to show up.

It would really suck if you wanted your name in your signature, and your name is Díck.
