I run a landscaping company and wanted to change my uniforms. I started out with safety yellow because no other landscaping companies used that color. For years it made us stand out from the crowd. Recently MOST other landscapers have now switched to the yellow. The point of a uniform is 2 fold. 1. Provide a clean consistent appearance for your brand. 2. Make your company stand out. Since everyone was now using safety yellow our current uniforms no longer met the 2nd requirement, so we needed a change. I purchased 10 shirts for one of my maintenance crews as a test batch. Here's my opinion after using them. This is based on a service industry prospective. 1. Shirts are extremely visible and as one client stated (they look sharp and professional. I love the embroidery and I can't forget that color!) That's exactly what you want! 2. Quality was better than expected for the price paid. When the shirts arrived I was expecting basic quality. However the material is soft, doesn't grab hair (men, you know what I'm talking about) and is EASY TO CLEAN. One of my crew members spilled protien drink on it within 5 minutes of handing them out.... he took a wipe from the truck and within 2 seconds it was completely gone. Absolutely no trace left. I was shocked because protien drinks permanently stain anything they touch almost instantly. 3. Shirts are BREATHABLE. This is a must for a service industry and these shirts meet that requirement in spades. Air passes straight through them with little resistance. Polo shirts are notorious for lacking air flow so I was concerned they would be to hot. We regularly work on 100 degree weather so heat stress on our employees is a very real concern that can easily send people to the hospital. However these shirts have the polo look with a sport shirts comfort in hot weather. A+ in my book. I'll be ordering these as our standard uniform from this point forward. If I find any problems down the road I'll update this review.
