Vendor Apparel at the Office
For offices that are not owned by the vendor, this is just a bad idea. Human billboards. Free advertising. Professional prostitution. Wearing vendor apparel, emblazoned with logos, product names, and so on, just screams "I'm their bitch on a leash". If they paid me to wear it, I would consider it. But even then, that would violate our company policy against kick-backs and preferential treatment of suppliers. Remember what Dave the Crime Dog says: "Don't be a bitch on a leash".
