    I start my new role next month, no requirement for a suit or tie. From what I gathered with my office visit the attire seems to be jeans and long sleeve shirts.

    Can anyone recommend a decent shirt supplier? Do green clothes suppliers exist? I guess cotton is the go to material for environmental reasons?

    Oh, and some decent site boots wouldn't go a miss. Timberland Pro or any other recommended boots that look the part without breaking the bank?

    I've been spoon fed in the local council with uniform and boots supplied.

    There's always bamboo or wool, or indeed the traditional hair shirt :bigsmile:

    Most shirts are polycotton. The trouble with cotton is that once it gets wet, it stays wet. That's why I gave up wearing jeans many years ago. It's also harder to get non-iron shirts in it, if that matters.

    blimey would you like us to pack your lunch for you too ;-)

    anyway, screwfix have a good budget range of footware SITE, I go through a pair of their steel toe capped trainer type shoe about every six months.

    what job you doing?

    Title is development surveyor. Mostly office based but occasional site visit... So needs to be smart but functional

    :crazy:

    Victoria really; are you seriously asking where to buy shirts. I presume you are not living in bubble.
    The world's your oyster; charity shop at one end of the scale or, for outfit ideas, try Grayson Perry or Zandra Rhodes at the other. :wink:

    Grayson Perry? He's a potter, not a tailor, or has he branched out? :bigsmile:

    What sort of size are you, normal or do you need tailored?

    Lots of UK based cotton weavers, but more expensive, e.g. Acorn.

    I hope this thread gets deleted like the one did a few weeks back.

    If nothing else with the references to shirt/tie I now read the op's name as "Victorian Eco" - up to now I read the name as "Victoria Neco"

    Can't help on the clothing front - avoiding sythetics would be the likely plan I would think - but I hope the new job goes well.
