Now we are nearing the end of another great year, 2012 is set to be even bigger for us with exciting developments to our corporate suit ranges.
All our corporate suits are inspired by latest trends and iconic styles regularly featured in the world of fashion, much like the latest Corgnelliani range of menswear. In the early part of next year we will be launching a brand new men’s 2 button front jacket into our very popular Performance Collection. With a striking stripe and much more fitted, modern approach, this is set to be a great hit – watch this space!
Any uniform suit we develop includes key fashion details to ensure your staff feel elegant in whatever they wear. With guaranteed performance woven into this, our uniform suits are nothing short of a revelation in the current market of workwear.
Our brand new Patrol Mitt waterproof gloves have been launched recently just in time for the cold weather. We have had a great review from a serving police constable in the UK who has worn the new waterproof mittens on foot patrol and whilst driving, also whilst out road running on some extremely cold mornings. See below for his great feedback.
“I found them very comfortable and snug. My first impressions were that there was simply a build up of heat from within the glove, almost as if I had some mini hand warmers in there. It is quite unique and a bit difficult to describe. I thought that my hands would have been sweating, however when I removed the gloves, my hands felt fine and there was no moisture or sweat of any sort. They certainly keep the hands warm when required. I’m sure this has something to do with the three layers of fleece material contained within the waterproof glove.
On the top of the glove there is what I would call a small dome of fleece material which is fastened by velcro to the glove. In addition to this, the fingers of the glove have the top removed, in order that this fleece dome can be placed over the fingers when not requiring the fingers to be used for writing tickets or any other purpose.
On to the palm of the glove, the material is completely different from the rest of the glove. The palm is embossed with a rough, leather like material which allows for a very strong grip, even whilst driving. At the cuff area, there is a small tab which is handily placed when trying to pull the gloves on, also the cuff area is elasticated, but not too tightly meaning that you know your gloves are never going to slide off at any moment.
Over the last couple of days when the weather has been wintry I have been wearing the waterproof mitten at every opportunity to test out their waterproofing capabilities. I used them whilst scraping my car, walking the dog in the rain, shovelling salt etc. There was never any saturation of water or ice onto the glove and I found when using the mitts in these conditions there was still a continual build up of heat within as I have referred to earlier.
In summary I would say that the Patrol Mitt would be a very wise selection for anyone looking for a pair of reliable, warm thermal waterproof gloves in these cold winter months. From a police point of view, the fact that you can detach the fingers allowing easy access for writing is a definite selling point. These gloves signal a move away from a more traditional plain leather black glove and are a break from the norm. I would certainly recommend them”.
Our corporate wear department never miss a beat when it comes to fashion news, and we couldn’t help but get excited to see the lines are now open for the Elle Style Awards for February 2012.

These winners and many more were celebrated this year for their great contribution to the world of fashion.
We believe corporatewear is all about fashion and feeling great in what you wear. Our unique approach allows us to bring the world of fashion into our ranges whilst being durable and great quality for the corporate wear UK working market.

A police Constable in the North reviewed our brand new Magnum Strider boots for a week whilst completing the tough day to day duties that police officers face. Hot off the press from our Magnum strider shoe, our boots are set to be a complete success.
Here’s what he had to say about the excellent waterproofing qualities of the magnum Strider boot.
“During the week long test, there was one day of continuing heavy rainfall. I had the pleasure of having to walk through a couple of fields which were extremely saturated. I was the only one who came out of the other end with dry feet; I took great pleasure of explaining the benefits of the Strider boot’s technology to my colleagues.”
This technology is that of the Ion mask which offers a breathable and waterproof covering that allows the boot to repel water, dirt and chemicals whilst being easy to clean and be quick drying.
For more information on our Magnum shoes and boots or if you are interested in providing your own review, please call us on 08450 66 66 99 – we’d love to hear from you!

When developing our latest ranges of corporate wear, we take much inspiration from the same sources as well known brands such as Ralph Lauren and GQ. We develop fashion ranges ideal for the workwear market for everyday use at affordable prices, making us unique in the corporate wear uk sector. Inspirations from the latest Ralph Lauren collection include wider lapels and curved shapes as featured in our very popular Aprilla Jacket.
Our Aprilla Jacket is a very stylish 1 button fitted jacket with a very striking multi stripe. Much like the suiting collection featured in Ralph Lauren, our Aprilla Jacket has been developed with high end fashion in mind to ensure your look is key when selecting your corporatewear.
Following on from the success of our Magnum strider shoe, we have now launched our brand new Magnum Strider boot. We have had a fantastic review sent in by Peter, a Response Police Constable in the UK highlighting the benefits of our brand new boot:
I was allocated a pair of Magnum Strider boots by Keltic Clothing in order that a field test review could be conducted, in all sorts of conditions to establish the suitability of the boot for civil enforcement and parking officers who are on their feet all day. I am currently a serving police officer in the UK and over the past week, the boots were put through their paces, throughout a number of scenarios and weather conditions!
When I first tried on the boot, I was pleasantly surprised, it actually felt more like slippers. I had a small walk around in them on hard flooring and you couldn’t really hear the sole of the boot making contact with the surface, in direct comparison to the loud, clunky noise of some types.
I wore the boots for work and did not experience any problems whatsoever from a comfort viewpoint. I take my choice of footwear very seriously and found them extremely responsive when driving vehicles, the sole does not have any mouldings of the sole design sticking out, getting caught in the pedals or anything like that.
The first day I had chance to wear the boots operationally was quite warm and I didn’t notice any increase in temperature of my feet. In relation to their comfort while walking, it isn’t something that becomes an issue. I actually forgot that I was wearing them until someone asked me if I was wearing new boots! A number of personnel remarked on their professional look.
The boot is a mid height boot, i.e. it covers just above the ankle bone. It has two normal eyelets for laces at the bottom of the boot, as you get near the tongue I would describe them as two hooks, which allows for the laces to be locked in place, keeping the tongue secure. Yet again, something so small, but you don’t have to worry about your laces coming undone at any vital moment.
It has what I would call a casing, reinforcing the heel of the Magnum shoes, which means more security for the wearer. This small piece of design makes all the difference and helps to prevent ankle pain / soreness. At no point did I feel that the movement of my foot was restricted within the boot. It makes the foot feel secure, however still allows for a little movement. I found that the insoles are extremely comfortable and have an excellent cooling factor, again pointing back to the fact that my feet remained cool the first day I wore the boots, despite the warm weather.
After my test of these boots, I am of the opinion that these boots are suitable for ANYONE. I know that the boots have a targeted audience of Civil Enforcement Officers Security Officers and other similar positions however I would encourage anyone who is on their feet for long periods each day, enjoys walking or gentle hiking to invest in a pair of these boots. You can be safe in the knowledge that they are extremely comfortable, completely waterproof and very stylish.
