    anybody know why these items arent carried by cintas anymore. when I was ordering new logo socks, the operator said its was a ups corporate decision, but didnt give details. The cotton jackets just dont do much in heavy rain...they are useless.

    The socks are not nearly as good quality as before, they fade and logos falls after a few washings. I thought we would at least get a break on shipping if not free.

    I called Cintas and the only thing they had was the socks?

    Homeland security tightened up the rules and required controls on uniform items. Paruse any manufactorer of uniform items and you will see references to those regulations.

    I wish Homeland Security would tighten up the regulations on quality

    we don't even use cintas anymore. I had an order form here for the new company but can't find it right now. I have new socks from them and they are nice quality.

    i order the old style socks...from a company out of NC..theyre cheap priced and hold up fine.. as far as the jackets the inner shell works great in the rain

    This is an over two year old thread that has been brought back to life. The polo shirts are long gone, and Twin Hill has the uniform contract now. My last Cintas ankle socks lasted two years without the logos falling off and have no holes in them. They are fixing to get replaced by the Twin Hills, which are a little cheaper. My current ones are too faded.

    I simply buy me some good Nike ankle high black socks. Awesome quality and comfortable... If management says anything (which is only when they are on their kick), I switch to the one of two pair of brown UPS I own that are collecting dust in my Next day, back to my comfy socks

    We are told only black or brown socks with shorts so you can get them any where they do not need the logo on them.
