    Default What do you consider your Uniform?

    Came across this article about a Urban Uniform....got me thinking.

    http://boingboing.net/2015/01/02/mak...Boing+Boing%29

    Does anyone have a favorite way of dressing that might be considered a "Uniform"
    This may reflect your work...or profession....or just what you feel comfortable in.

    I'm a jeans and blue denim shirt or flannel shirt.

    I know several that wear bib overalls always.....or
    Jeans and "T" shirt.....
    Shorts and "T"
    Suit and tie....
    Work uniform.

    This article makes the point that we get to be known for what we choose to wear........

    What do y'all think?

    Cool Well, since you asked...

    When driving buses I wear the mandatory uniform that is provided for by the company. They are very strict about that. Right now I'm enjoying an unpaid 4 week vacation while the University is out for Christmas. I quit wearing blue jeans years ago and am now wearing pants with cargo pockets or military BDUs...

    I wear a uniform at work consisting of pleated front casual dress slacks and a knit polo shirt with company logo, but I hate wearing them ! When I'm off work, I like jeans and a T shirt, or cargo pants and a T shirt. Even wear just a T shirt in the winter but also wear a jacket outside. I'm not into dressing up at all, but then I am a dyed in the wool country boy !

    For work - jeans or cargo pants and company logo shirt. Rest of the time shorts and a t-shirt......unless its cold and then jeans or cargo pants. Supposed to be in the 80's this weekend before the big chill.

    I wear cargo shorts and vented fishing style shirts with leather work boots about 90 percent of the time I am out of the house.

    Jeans with the knees worn out, with drips of pvc cement and pipe dope here and there. Boots with the toes worn away. T shirt or pullover with the same pvc cement and dope. Most of the time I would be hard pressed to scrounge up enough nice clothes from my closet to go to church.

    Carrhartt cargo pants and a company tee/polo/sweatshirt depending on season are pretty much the uniform at work. At home it's just more of the same though in summer it's shorts and some old shirt with the sleeves torn off. I can't stand suit and tie and will do just about anything to avoid having to wear one. Sure was glad when t-shirts under a sport coat became "cool."

    I wear the same thing at work that I wear everyplace else:
    When it's warm light cotton cargo pants or carpenter pants and a cotton pocket-T.
    When it's cold I wear Dickies or Carrhartt duck cotton canvas carpenter pants a polypro t shirt, wool blend long sleeve henley shirt, 1/4 zip fleece and a hoodie.

    At work, I wear the mandatory uniform. Outside of work it is mostly boots for footwear, jeans or cargo pants, and t-shirts, flannel shirts, and hooded sweatshirts. Except for work and church, it is rare that you don't see me with a hat on.

    True story: I've long been a semi-casual slacks guy, but I had to start wearing levis again working in texas. I was informed in no uncertain terms that the slacks were just unprofessional.

    If its khaki colored then they're cargo. Long pants or shorts. Blue jeans are always carpenter.

    Always have a white t-shirt for an undershirt and then some other t-shirt for something over it.

    Socks are no show ankle socks in warmer weather. Could be cotton or wool on any given day.

    Shoes are low cut Merrills that are suitable for the street or trails.

    Cold weather calls for a fleece hoody or wool blend jacket.

    Church calls for suit and cheap dress shoes.

    You can answer all you want, as long as you don't post that picture.

    Uh....a scout uniform. You'll notice I have more demerit badges than just about anyone. And....I carry two pace counters. One for walking forward and one for backwards.
