    Thought it was pretty cool a vet in my center noticed I was wearing a short sleeve with a thermo under it and he asked me wears your coat, I told him Im still waiting on all my winter gear been 3 wks. So next day he gave me a brand new coat with tag still on it the one with the box and string logo and a old school UPS Olymics Worldwide Partners long sleeve shirt, a couple riverside new logo long sleeves and my favorite the old school vest which I think look a million times better then the new ones. I think when my new stuff comes in im going to hang the retro stuff up I like collecting retro stuff. Man and the quality is amazing compared to the new rags they give us.

    I still have Riverside pants and shorts that are too small for me, but I hold on to them hoping some day I can lose some weight. Still have a couple of Van Heusen long sleeve shirts. The quality is amazing compared to the crap they make us wear now.

    Depends on if your have anyone that's a stickler for appearance at your center. We have been told we are not allowed to wear the uniforms with the old logo or they will be confiscated.

    Yea a vet gave me a couple pairs of riverside shorts during the blistering Texas summer days, they are way more comfortable. That and ive had a couple pairs of my twinhill shorts blow the a** end out on me while im utilizing my 8 keys to lifting and lowering.

    They told us not to wear the old logo stuff anymore, too, or we would be sent home and face disciplinary action. I wore em on the heaviest day of peak, hoping they would send me home. I even wore my old nylon jacket with the zip-in liner. They never said a word.

    My winter jacket has the old box-and -string logo, its probably about 15 years old. No one has ever said anything to me about wearing it and I doubt they ever will; taking it away from me would compel them to order me a replacement and that costs money.

    Does your center fullfill uniform orders in a timely manner? They cant confiscate it unless they are willing to immediately replace it.

    They complain when you wear your "throwback" uniforms with the old logo, but they don't have a problem giving you a "throwback" package car.

    In my center they want us in the twin hill stuff, but if it's okay in your center, then lucky!

    Yep never had a problem with uniform orders. I know that's not the case everywhere.

    You show up in a throwback uniform, they confiscate it, and you have to work all day delivering in your underwear?
