All you guys wearing steel-toes, have you ever tried composite or fiber safety toe boots? Just before I busted another hernia which has had me out of work since March I was wearing Timberland Titan Pro's. Uber comfortable and almost as light as sneakers. I had to have electrical-rated footwear at the time, and these covered that as well.

Other than that, to maintain the thread - was FR Jeans and long-sleeved button up blue or tan FR shirt. I was working for a utility contractor and 100% FR was the solid rule.
Now I'm pretty much in the PJ's/sweats all day gang unless I get lucky enough to have an interview or do the rare side-job.

We were having this discussion during coffee break one day, I'd had to agree that some dirt and rips showed a productive man who didn't mind getting dirty to get the job done.

I can't remember the last time I came home from work without dirt on my clothes and if I get a little rip on a pair of $45 pants I'm not throwing them away.

If I were in an office with formal attire it would be different. I expect my lawyer and doctor to be in clean clothes. When I have a serviceman come over to do manual labor, I can't fault him for being dressed for the job.

Just my opinion...

I agree to a degree, for instance a lot of my shirts and pants have no-alox and pvc stains where I wipe my hand off on the side or a worn knee or screwdriver hole in the pocket etc....and I don't really care about that stuff. But I personally cant stand seeing guys dressed in cut off pants or camos or t shirts with the sleeves cut off or wife beaters.....I don't care what you do, at work dressed like that you look like a bum.

I think it's short for camisole. I don't think that word is used too much in the States. I think it is more European/Australian. Basically a tight shirt?

What I wear depends on the work I'm doing. I like a clean unripped pair of Carhartt jeans, T-shirt and my Doc Martins(work boots not sandles). If I'm doing attic or crawl space work or doing parking lot light trenches I will wear my old ripped jeans since that is probably where they got ripped in the first place. I actually prefer to see a tradesman in jeans, not dress pants and a collared shirt. It is just not right in my mind. Those clothes belong in the office (or on the golf course) not on the job, but I'm the guy that shows up to a wedding on the Harley with leathers on.
