    Polo shirts with black dress pants and leather shoes. You can easily clean toner off your shirts/pants/shoes with the orange toner rags and its easy to clean. Like people said avoid white shirts.

    These days running in shorts, tee shirts, slip on sneakers and a hat(a bit thin on top). Being able to be this comfortable is awesome.
    Whatever

    Whatever one chooses to wear, keep in mind that you are judged by the clothes that you wear and by your overall appearance. You can be the best tech in the world, but if you show up looking upkept, you will be judged by your customer.

    Yea it would be unprofessional. But the most professional companies could not do a 2 hour response time including from 7 to 7, 7 days a week. They take me as i come. All the machines are in back offices and cant be seen by the public eye. Try 37C at 70% RH. Its Africa some times even up to 45C is not strange.

    When i need to be format in the work setting its suit pants and black golf/polo shirts. Kept on ruining expensive clothes.
    Whatever

    Back in the day (late 80's early 90's) it was a suit & tie.

    Now I simply wear smart shoes, suit trousers & plain shirt. (no tie)

    However IT/Network support dress like a courier driver, usually in shorts & T regardless of the weather.

    Back in the day, here in Kern County LA branch salesmen would show up in their 3 piece dark suits and the local farming community would basically b told to go to hell. Over dressing can be as bad as under dressing. Know your customer base.

    I agree but will add one small point. As someone that has been in (and still am) sales, when I show up wearing dress pants, shirt & tie, it's a turnoff to a good ol' country boy and such. However what's a bigger turn off is to talk and act like a businessman. You all know what I'm talking about...the typical sales voice??!!

    I've found that in this situation that it doesn't really much matter if I'm dressed in a suit, it's more important to get on their level - talk like they talk. For me, I grew up in the country, so it isn't hard.
