As trucking professionals, it’s imperative to always present your equipment and yourself in an excellent way. I want to tell you about a shirt that I use while on the road representing my company. The Carhartt Contractor’s Work Pocket Polo is an excellent shirt that I’ve depended on for years. When I buy the shirt, I carefully remove the Carhartt label from the pocket and then add my embroidered logo on it for a sharp, professional image.
These shirts stand up to the most rugged work. The 65% polyester/35% cotton pique blend is not affected by the constant rubbing of seatbelts that I’ve seen ruin breathable polos. I’ve had shirts of another brand that were ruined by only a few days of the seatbelt rubbing against it. During the summer, I constantly drench these shirts in sweat when I’m securing and tarping loads in the unforgiving sun. They dry quickly and stand up to many washes. After all of the punishment, the shirts return to my closet hangar looking great and ready for more wear.
