I finally got my act together. After all of the research and getting things organized, I leave this Saturday for Memphis, TN. I will be attending Swift's Academy. I have read the manual and it says something about wearing shirts with collars. Is that all we are allowed to wear?

I'm sure one of the Swift guys will answer, but I am almost positive they want you to wear pants and shoes as well.

Yeah, I kinda figured that. Lol I was more or less asking about the shirts. Do I have to wear shirts with collars?

I went to the Memphis Academy about a year and a half ago. Wear "industrial" clothing. Collars are not necessary. You will be standing outside a lot, so comfortable shoes especially. A sun hat would be handy and a water bottle. Probably short pants would be fine.

Hey, I appreciate that Erroll. Stay safe out there.

All I pretty much wear are ****ies short sleeve workshirts.

Comfortable, durable, not that expensive. They look like "work attire" with a collar. And you can find an assortment of sizes and colors at pretty much any Walmart.

Thank you Rick. I didn't even think about that. Stay safe
