    Any experienced drivers work for companies that want drivers to be wearing proper attire as in no sandals jogging suits etc. Sandals and jogging suits get trash talked a lot on here. During my otr days I never wore either but witnessed plenty. I wear a uniform at my job.

    Most uniforms that I see are the local drivers. I do see otr drivers wearing a company shirts. Aso, for the flip flop steering wheel holders.... The majority are from other companies, but I do see a lot of drivers who are not from other ethnic backgrounds wearing them as well. The track suits, seem to be from other countries and driving Volvos.... No offense to you Volvo lovers, lol

    Sneakers sit on a towel next to the door, boots under the bunk

    jeans and a clean shirt at customer/receiver, I may or may not just wear sweat pants into the truck stop if it’s the middle of the night and I need to use the restroom or such, depends on my mood.

    Why not mind your own business and let other people be comfortable? It literally affects no one on how other dress.
    We aren't talking safety on the road or anything. If you have a problem with how someone is dressed, that's your problem and not any one else's.

    What’s wrong with wanting the smallest amount of professionalism out of a driver that, like it or not, represents all truck drivers to the public?

    I once went to my daughter's school to pick her up because she had gotten sick. When I walked in, all the staff had pajamas on. I asked my daughter about it and she said the teachers do it every Friday.

    Here's a PSA for those who don't know: IT'S NOT OK TO WEAR PAJAMAS TO WORK. EVER! You look like a frickin BUM, and have no self respect.

    Professionalism out of truckers?
    All we do is sleep drive sleep drive.
    We're gypsies living on the open road.
    Campers that never go home.

    Your truck is your home. Be comfy.
