    How do you dress on road trips or dump trips ??

    Just wondering how some of you feel about your dress code when visiting banks on a road trip or for dumping. My wife and I dis-agree on this one. I am retired and dress real casual around the house but whenever I go out for the purpose of visiting banks to search for coins or to dump coins, I always "clean-up", shower and shave and try to dress business casual. She does not feel this is necessary, however she will not even go to the grocery store without doing the same thing, except she does not have to shave! My reasoning and I believe it to be true is that you get treated with much more respect when you are clean, neat and nicely dressed. Maybe it's just my thing and I should get over it but it's just my style. Care to share your opinion? HH and Merry Christmas to All.

    I wear a shirt that says "I'm looking for silver!" any time I'm going to banks.
    But seriously, being days away from 15, I dress especially casual. I don't like to look like I'm carrying a wad of cash around on me. At any age you're a target for criminals. I rarely dress to impress.

    Ski mask and long trench coat. Hunting and dumping is worked into my regular schedule so whatever I'm wearing is it- the ladies all think I'm rich anyways so no need to impress. HH Mark
    Life is a coin, you can spend it any way you wish, but you can only spend it once.

    For picking up boxes and dumping, I usually just dress casually since they all know me already. However, when I go on a road trip, I always dress nice and clean. I have noticed a major improvement with the tellers' attitudes when I walk up. Always dress for success

    Exactly. Think about job interview or go to church. Asking for free silver is like asking for a bless or job offer.

    Actually if you do a lot of road trips this is very important. I went from getting the cops called on me to getting silver halves they were holding for someone else [multiple times]. Hell if i was single other options would also be available. You get more flies with honey then you do with vinegar.

    I've dressed up and down, did not make a difference. It's all about attitude.

    i usually hit up banks in uniform and get the upmost respect. on past road trips I will dress business casual as well. At times I even rock the dirtcy sanchez...the dirty sanchez has not produced ill results, in fact, my wife finds it quite attractive.
