Do you think, as a service tech, the color of your shirt sets the tone of the importance in our profession to the client? If so, what colors are significant?

I think white or tan are good shirt colors blue I associate with the maytag man. I think shirt color should not overwhelm your logo colors that is why white is a good shirt.

I would say CLEAN is the best color.

What is this ? A fashion show ?

I prefer the t-shirt as well. I have been experimenting with this over the last two years. I have had a few screen printed t's done, some button ups, and some polo shirts.

The customers seem to prefer the t's better than anything else, especially because they immediately are able to recognize who we are and who we are with. We got the greatest response when the instead of the left breast being printed, the whole front and back had our design on them.

No one ever made a single comment on the button ups, and just a few liked the polo shirts.

Every trade around here supplies their monkeys with bright neon green , bright neon yellow, or bright neon orange long sleeved t-shirts. Now these type of shirts are associated with recent parolees on a break from their real occupation , drug infractions and time in the big house which as you would guess, makes homeowners nervous. PV system companies all dress the monkeys up like that too. I guess this is an osha thing from the prevalence of it. I liken it to a thug stamp.

I always go against the tide of conformity so, if I had a bunch of so called electricians I was going to unleash on the public, maybe I might opt to send them out with the metro sexual look. You know- a nice Boy George hat and perhaps one of those super thin neckties, a pressed white button up shirt with matching shorts , and dark colored socks to go with white sneakers..

Yes, and its been proven over and over. Uniform color greatly effects first impression and White collared shirts consistently reflect the best first impression with light blue and tan close second, red and green consistently being the worst.

I detest tee shirts if they're on larger people. I bought uniform shirts X long because there's nothing like an employee wearing a tee shirt, bending over working in a public place with boxers and/or a vertical smile showing.
