    What clothes do you choose to work with printers?

    I am looking for the job position connected with the toners and colors of different types. Is it better to wear anything old? Or may be special ones? Brand, for instance? And easy to wash?

    Are you just refilling toner and ink cartridges? If so, just wear old clothes you don't care about. If you are going to be going into customer's offices, then read above.

    Most quality employers will provide you with polo or golf style shirts with their logo on them. Some will even provide a commercial laundry service. As Bull Shit Man 2 said, dark pants. Black, dark navy blue or dark brown. As most machines now are power toner, it should wash out easily. Just remember wash in cold water as hot water might melt the toner into the cloth. Tumble dry.

    That all changes if you have to work on duplicators as the are fluid ink and it is hard to remove from surfaces, hands and clothing. I would recommend having a shop coat or coveralls/overalls and wearing surgical gloves. Scrubs or similar waterless hand cleaning wipes are very good at removing duplicator in from hands and surfaces as long as it has not had too long to set.

    If your not customer facing which it doesn't seem like you are, and are over the age where you care about your appearance like most of us here probably are....
    Army Surplus and as you are in London check out silvermans
    I bought a pair of us army bdu trousers and their now three years old and are not worn out, the knees just as good as the day I bought them. Most British and US gear is ripstop which is obvious but also means rips wont get worse with more washing.
    When you think you have made a procedure idiot proof your company employs a better idiot.

    Mostly, I prefer brand things of any type to make them clean quickly, because of the quality. For instance, I like to wear Cools for my every day training. And after all I am happy to wear them, as even mud is not too stable on them.

    Company issued shirts. I was wearing black dress pants, but noticed my co workers and boss were wearing jeans. So now I do too. Black running shoes with a steel toe, that way I can skip the stupid rubber slippers that have NO traction on painted walkthroughs in wharehouses and plants.
