Default What color is your company shirts?

Reason I ask, I am going through my closet and have pulled nearly 50 shirts out that are now going to be turned into rags. They are all white. I was wondering if there might be a better color for shirts. In the next month I plan on ordering a ton of company shirts, and just wonder what you guys have as far as color, maybe a color out there that will be harder to get dirty.. white just wastes away after a sweaty day and around dust or chalk.. it is gone.

So what say you on color?

Pink with a velure collar will definitly keep you memorable.

If you go with a color you should go pastel and keep it light for temp reasons.

It is all part of the bigger picture. I am chalking it up to marketing and branding. Plus I am tired of advertising for sherwin. I am not their painter.

I sell best in vegas gold. Something about the color...fills me up with happiness inside. Closing rates much higher than in white or gray because I exude happiness, and that my friends is contagious. The smily guy is wearing a similar color, works for him too.

My personal style is Goth. I always keep a couple of vegas golds folded in a plastic bag under my seat when I am offduty, just in case a call comes in and I need to do a impromptu estimate. Selling in Goth is NOT recommended.

Is this like the new Windows commercial where the fat guy is thinking back dreaming about how he invented the new Window's and see's himself as thin and handsome?

I had started with royal blue and then orange, but everytime I'm in Home Depot People think I work there. I think I'm going to change to light blue.
