Keltic are on Coronation Street!!

Did you see Keltic’s School Crossing Patrol uniform on Coronation Street last week? It was modelled  beautifully by Dennis Tanner in his new “secret” job as a School Crossing Patrol person.

Last week we saw how Dennis had to find a job to pay back Rita. He takes on the role of a School Crossing Patrol person but it seems to have caused him a few problems with a certain Steve McDonald.

After  discussing  the options with Lance – Head costume designer for the soap. He decided on using our  Yellow winter jacket, mountain hat and formal peaked hat and a pair of our high vision gloves.

Keep watching this week as the story line unfolds.

Just right for the job? You decide!

As Road Safety Professionals you all know how important the job is that our School crossing Patrols do.  Having been around for over 50 years now, that are part of everyday life for all of us.  Here at Keltic Clothing, we think that the schemes being delivered by you, our Road Safety Officers, every day are crucial.  You do such a great job.  All schemes are designed to educate our children on the rules of general road safety.  It’s no surprise then that children are educated in schools about the role of the school crossing patrol as part of the “people who help us” activities.  Children get to dress up as professionals such as a police officer, fire fighter, doctor and nurse. 

Keltic Clothing have their own range of outfits which are fit for this purpose.  This week we are really excited about our latest addition to the range, our children’s school crossing patrol outfits.   They are an exact replica of the adult uniforms that we stock – but mini versions.  The sign is even available in RA1 standard reflectivity and prismatic.  

We would love to know what you think, after all – you are the experts.  You can contact me for a sample on 08450 66 66 99 or email serena@kelticclothing.co.uk

Don’t forget to take a look at our traffic lights – the latest addition to our Road Safety Education Range

Giorgio Armani’s Tips for Choosing a Corporate Suit

With the Spring/Summer 2013 fashion shows in September a happy memory, it’s a good time to round up some sound rules for selecting a corporate suit. We have brought together some rules from the master himself – Giorgio Armani – who knows a thing or two about looking smart!

  1. There is an old saying that a man should look for something that he can wear, and not something that will wear him. In other words, look for elegance, sophistication, and timeless style.  This is preferable to selecting current high fashion trends, which will date quickly—and date the wearer – and your business image.
  2. Now we come to style. A two-button suit is more timeless than a three- or a one-button.  A single-breasted jacket is much more versatile than a double one because it allows you to dress your suit up or down more freely and you can use the jacket as a separate more easily.
  3. The most important thing when buying a corporate suit is to be sure your wearers feel comfortable in their uniforms.  If they feel comfortable, they will feel more self-confident and be able to do a better job.
  4. The worst sartorial faux pas that can be made is to looking like you’re trying too hard.  It’s important to develop your own individual style, that fits in with your corporate image and select colours and styles that really suits the wearer.  By selecting the right formal shirt and tie styles and colours you can get a good balance between your corporate image and what suits your staff.
  5. When buying a corporate suit, go for a colour that will not date too soon, fits with your corporate colours, and is suitable for the type of work the wearer is doing.  Favourite colours are charcoal grey or a subtle, interesting navy pinstripe. Bear in mind that light colours like silver grey will need to be cleaned or washed more frequently, and that plain dark colours like black can show bits and need brushing often.
  6. Confidence and a sense of humour are very attractive. Having an Armani style wardrobe doesn’t hurt either.

I hope this has been useful and will help you when selecting a suitable corporate uniform for your staff. We have a whole range of fashion forward corporate suits to choose from, so if you need some help or further information regarding choosing the correct range for your needs, please call us on 08450 66 66 99.
