Legend has it that back in the late 19th century union painters adopted the all white uniform to set themselves apart from the non-union painters. This became their symbol of professionalism and they often added a black bow tie just to enhance the professional look. At the end of the day if the painter came off a job with little paint on their clothing it would suggest that they were skilled. Oddly enough, this same theory has shifted today. When you see a painter with several colors on their whites it suggests a seasoned veteran of the trade. Nowadays if you see a painter in a perfectly white uniform it usually means it’s his very first day on the job. Lets hear your thoughts on this. #moralesdrywallpainting
