"We went through Toplevel Sportsware to create this super light and breathable, rice mesh poly shirt. The shirt has UV protection, with us being in Florida."

"We use Port Authority Clothing and custom embroidery. Our shirts have UVA 50 protection and for the life of me, I can't get chlorine to bleach one."

"The UV polo shirts are made from Tee Shirt Hub, while the Crossland Soft Shell Jacket with custom embroidery is from 4imprint."

"I prefer Sport-Tek Polos. They dry fast, are cool in the summer, don't wrinkle easily, are somewhat resistant to chlorine and look professional."

"You could take these shirts [Elevate Men's Macta Short Sleeve Polo Shirt from Promotique] and dip them in a bucket of straight bleach and I bet they would be like, 'Meh, is that all you got?' I purchased some for all of my employees, and everyone is amazed how well they hold up. They're super soft and cool, too."



"Pool Tech Gear did our custom dri-fit shirts, and they look sharp. I found them on Instagram. We provide the work shirt and tell our techs no athletic shorts or flip flops. They can provide their own shorts and shoes."

"I designed this myself [the shirt was manufactured by Spida Custom Apparel]. We are going to franchise, so we needed something professional, unique and comfortable. The long sleeves are, of course, for sun protection."
