    Taking on a new position where I'll be calling on customers all day.

    It's Florida, so a suit nor tie is required.. I could probably even get away with wearing nice jeans and a long sleeve shirt, but will play that by ear. Chances are I'll be wearing flat front pants.

    Anyway, I need to find some nice shirts.. Long sleeve button up or polo/golf shirts.. I'm tempted to just go to Express and buy 5 or 10 long sleeve shirts, but run the risk of looking the same every day, just a different color.

    Any good stores or styles you guys recommend for the spring/summer?

    i don't see anything wrong with buying your workweek wear from the same place... if it fits well then at least you're consistent. and even if the shirt/pant combo is similar, you could always switch it up with different fabrics or textures. express sounds just fine for your needs.

    if anything, dress it up with a tie every now and then to switch things up even if you aren't required to. also, it doesn't sound like you're gonna be around the same people everyday so it prob isn't quite as big a deal as you might think if you wear the same dress shirts over and over. it's for work, after all.

    only buy those 1mx express shirts if they are on sale. def not worth the 40-50 they cost, get them on sale for 10 each

    werd again. i worked at express when i was younger. the quality is not worth 50 AT ALL. you can get those shits for 15-20ish quite often. wait for a sale and go to slickdeals.net and look for express coupons if need be
