I wear a pair of jeans, t-shirt, sneakers, and a hoodie if it is cold. Pretty much see my pic.

That's exactly the way I'm dressed right now. Comfortable but looks good.

I will wear jeans, t-shirt when on the road and button up or polo shirt at a customer. Boots, or tennis shoes/Sketchers. Sketchers has some comfortable shoes that won't break the bank and look somewhat professional. I would wear my Clark's, but I am not sure I would be let in the gate with them on. My Grandfather made me promise to never wear a wife beater without a real shirt covering it, no shorts, and he said under no circumstances will I be allowed to wear flip flops except in the shower, and not to and from. He said if I did he would come back from the dead and haunt me for the rest of my life. He said there are enough unprofessional drivers out there another one is not needed. He added corduroy, while normally frowned upon, can be worn on Sunday if attending services at a nearby house of worship, but they should not be worn if utilizing the traveling services at the truck shop, then a clean shirt and jeans are in order.

When working: jeans, company logo t-shirt, polo shirt, or casual button down, and oil/slip resistant boots. When off duty: same as above, but unless it's raining I'll swap the boots for a pair of Crocs with slip resistant soles. If it's snowy/icy out, I'll dig out my snow boots. Depending on the temperature, I'll either wear an insulated jacket, hoodie, or no outer layer.

I know Averitt is big on uniforms but what other companies require them?

I wear Wrangler Cargo Shorts or Jeans, and a ****ies Short sleeve button down work shirt (2 pocket - untucked) every day ANYWAYS. Love the ****ies shirts. Comfortable, durable. Or Hanes Beefy Pocket T's.

Right now I work in flipflops (IT) but when I drive, it's Timberland Pro Steel Toed Sneakers, or Bates Tactical Lightweight full height boots.

I'm easy to shop for, because I never get dressed up (one suit for court appearances/weddings/etc.). 1/2 dozen pair of shorts, 1/2 dozen pair of jeans, 3 each of the ****ies in the colors I like (dozen total), dozen pair Hanes Boxer Briefs, dozen pair Hanes tube socks, 10 Hanes Beefys in various colors. That's my annual clothing budget in a nutshell.

Simplicity. I can pick up replacements at any decent Walmart (or order direct online). And would work well at any trucking company that doesn't require uniforms. Clean, neat looking, simple, inoffensive.

That is until you try to post that brand of work shirts onto this forum! Then it becomes really offensive! embarrassed.gif

It will put the lotion on it's skin or it will get the hose again. It will do as it's told!

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

HaHa!

I remember trying to attribute a quote to the great novelist Charles ****ens, and I got the same result as you did on your ****ies shirts.

I also remember you referencing that great talent, ****ie Allen of the Allman Brothers, and he got bleeped out also!
