A mechanic needs the proper tools to do their job, and the same goes for a baker, a doctor, a dentist or just about anyone in a specialty field. Why should your company be any different? Logoed apparel is just another tool that helps your staff do their jobs more efficiently—and comfortably.

Durable apparel works as hard as they do:
People who work outdoors are often tough on their clothes, so it’s natural for them to demand durable, warm apparel. You’ll get your money’s worth if you buy the good stuff the first time. If you’re in any of the trade industries, you probably already know these brands, but they are worth repeating: Carhartt®, Dickies®, Dri Duck, Red Kap and more. Show pride in your company by putting your name on a Carhartt Thermal Lined Duck Active Jacket, Dickies Work Shirt or Red Kap Mechanic Crew Shirt. Don’t forget comfort! A Heavyweight Thermal Lined Full Zip Hooded Sweatshirt, Carhartt Acrylic Knit Hat or 5-in-1 Performance Polo can help make a tough day a little easier.
Specialty apparel that always looks fresh
Some industries are just inherently messy. Luckily, there are unique products for these markets that can help your employees always look their best. Those who work around food may appreciate a Ten Button Chef Coat or Stain Release Bib Apron with Teflon Finish. With a narrow café collar and straight back yoke seam, caterers, casino staff and others will appreciate the Batiste Dress Shirt. And anyone who works in the healthcare field is sure to love the Smock with Snap or Zip Front, Red Kap Lab Coat or Restore Scrub Top and Pants.
Highly visible apparel keeps them safe
Security and event staff, law enforcement and road crews need to be seen at all times, including when the weather is bad and at night. Help them keep crews safe with clothing that keeps them visible and makes it easy to carry their gear. Event workers are sure to appreciate the Reflective Safety Vest and Cornerstone Snag Proof Tactical Polo. Pair a bright top, like the Signal High Vis Jacket or Class 2 High Vis Reflective Pocket T-Shirt, with pants—consider the Cargo Pants or Security Pants—that have extra storage security workers will love.
Business apparel creates a unified look
Sara says “apparel can coordinate across different categories to create a versatile yet cohesive look. It could be casual or more refined.” Both the Silk Touch Performance Sport Polo and Workplace Easy Care Twill Shirt easily transition from a professional to a more informal tone. “These items would have some of the same colorways to mix and match collections or would work well together,” she continued. Help your employees think like a team by creating a uniform look they can be proud to wear. Pair Signature Blouse and Dress Shirts with Slim Chino Flat Front Pants and Pilbloc V-Neck Sweater. Or round out any outfit with a professional touch–and keep employees warm–with the Tri-Blend Open Cardigans, Cotton Blend Sweater or Harriton Fleece-Lined Nylon Jacket.
