    At XPO, linehaul are not required to wear uniforms, as we don’t have direct contact with the public and customers. I wear my company pants, a t-shirt, and carrhart hoodie.

    The ones the freight side wears aren’t too bad looking.

    I hate those stupid polo shirts a lot of companies are getting now. I’m more of a mechanic’s uniform kind of guy.

    Every time I beat up a dispatcher, I always got a free Coke.

    Holland doesn't give a crap about what we wear. My TM laid down the law and said "no nudity, no profanity, and no drinking references". Most of our guys wear Holland or Teamster shirts. Got a couple people sporting Harley Davidson. I got all kinds of hell delivering next to USC Columbia wearing a Clemson shirt.

    They aren't that bad, yeah they are brown, have a simple company logo on them and straight to the point, you want to talk about ridiculous, how about the multi colored polo shirts with the company name in about 2 to 4 different places on the shirt, that includes the shirts my employer has, now those are ridiculous.

    But then again we all know what is the best uniform out there, flip flops, sweat pants and a wife beater shirt, preferably with some mustard stains on it, now that gentlemen is some class right there.

    I don’t come to a trucking job every day to look like I’m there to play golf. Let the sales idiots wear those, so we can still look like working men in our button downs.
