Things get dirty and can't be too loose
Also Safety Boots are rule.

Americana "work" shirts
Chore coat or some sort heavy canvas coat (see Filson)
Carhartt work pants/double knee carpenter jeans
Plain leather work boots

I guess really just go full americana without going too crazy with materials or colours, since you're limited in terms of environment. Like no plaid or heavy sweaters, but go crazy with lighter jackets and multi pocket pants.

Make sure your clothes fit well, which can be hard with workwear brands. avoid branding. look to vintage workers/military for utilitarian inspo

These are cheap and come in a few colors, generally pretty good quality as far as Dickies go. I have a couple pairs.

Like others have said just make sure your clothes fit well. I used to do blue collar work and clothes do not last, it's not worth trying to look nice. Just save all of your money and nice clothes for leisure.

In Australia if you even happen to smell men working with their hands they make you wear hi-vis clothes. It's illegal for them to let you work without them.

Dickies pants and shirts.

Jeans.

It's what my community college auto shop instructor wore.

Some times a shop makes your wear a bit of a uniform.

I wear coveralls when working on my car
