    I have been wearing my white shirt with company name on it and black semi- casual trousers ete when canvassing to give a good impression. But even with two or three white t-shirts under the shirt with a logo it is freezing walking around like this in this weather at this time of year. And hands are freezing. What should I do? Just put my leather jacket on or woollen jumper and hide the white shirt with my company's logo on it and wear gloves and canvass? or wear more t-shirts? I worry if I don't wear my white shirt I won't give a good impression! Problem is it's short sleeved as well!

    U reckon just wear a hi-viz top with smart trousers and shoes should do it? Where can i buy one of those jackets? Travis Perkins? How can I get a logo on the hi Viz? Also when really cold, do you think gloves puts customers off? U dont reckon wear my casual leather jacket or wool jumper?

    When else could I use a hi-viz jacket? I do some gardening work and odd jobs? They keep you dry and have hoods?

    I just wear work trousers, black t-shirt, black jumper, and hi viz vest with company details on it.
    If it's cold I wear my company jacket under the hi viz.
    Gloves are fine, it's cold out there.
