Clothes can do a job – see what your corporate wear can do for you!

“Clothes can ‘do a job’. A well-cut suit can make you look slimmer, taller, sexier, more elegant or business-like”. Sir Paul Smith.

What a great description of what the best corporate wear can do for your staff and your organisation! Sir Paul Smith has enjoyed global success and won numerous design awards – who better to take inspiration from?

The winner of last year’s Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design Award has inspired our latest ranges of corporatewear. We wholeheartedly agree that “Clothes can ‘do a job’” – all our collections are designed not only to do a job for the individual wearer – by giving them smart workwear they’re proud to wear, but also to do a job for the organisation they work for, presenting customer-facing staff as  a sophisticated, unified team.

Corporate Wear

Choose the right corporate wear for full potential

For the individual, wearing a well-made, modern suit that’s well-cut makes you feel the most confident person in the world. And our clients tell us time and again, the right corporate wear can make a big difference not only to how staff carry themselves, but also to the public’s impression of the organisation as a whole.

Another great job that the right corporate wear suits can do is saving money! By choosing the right corporatewear suits for the particular job role that staff are doing, you’ll get the very best performance. For example our Endurance collection is four times more durable than other workwear suits, meaning staff who work in demanding work environments, will have the guarantee that their clothing will be working for their needs.

The latest fabric technology, as seen in our Endurance and Performance collections means that workwear is now lasting longer and longer if it is cared for correctly, meaning less expenditure on renewing uniforms each year.

To find out which of our ranges will work best for your staff, let our expert help you hand pick the right corporate wear to provide the best potential for your role. Call us on 01922 70 99 22 for further guidance.

Endurance Collection – Four Times More Durable Than Other Workwear Suits!

Today we’re very excited because we’ve got the results of the Martindale tests for our Endurance Collection. This is a scientific test done on laboratory conditions that measures the durability of fabric. News just in confirms that our Endurance Collection fabric is at least four times more durable than most other workwear suits currently on the market, and up to ten times more durable than high street alternatives.

Security Suits

Ideal security suit durability

The Martindale test is the most important test of a garment when it comes to assessing its durability. For any workwear or security suit, this is the one to watch. It involves a machine applying mechanised rubs to a sample fabric (also known as the rub test) which tests how many thousand rubs a fabric will withstand before it breaks down.

Most high street suits score from 8000 on Martindale Tests before the fabric begins to break down; our Endurance Collection scores up to 80,000 – an outstanding and totally unrivalled durability for everyday suits. This means our suits will last ten times longer than many high street brands and ideal for heavy usage such as for security suits, every day suits for hotel staff, and all demanding work environments where staff need to be really smart.

This is also our lowest price range, meaning it’s within every budget. For further information on these tests or advice on your workwear needs, please call Charlotte on 01922 70 99 22.

GQ’s designer of the year

Happy 2012 to everyone! This year is set to be even bigger than the last in our corporate wear department including plenty more fashion developments to keep us on our toes.

Picking up on the latest corporate wear uk and worldwide news, we wanted to comment on GQ’s designer of the year 2011 who was announced late last year, Tommy Hilfiger. Here is what GQ had to say “while many of his peers create an exclusive world into which they invite you, Hilfiger’s true genius has been to go out and sell the sartorial dream to the global Everyman.” Tommy Hilfiger himself says “preppy with an edge is what we have brought to the fashion business.”

We think this an excellent choice for fashion designer of the year and can’t wait to see what is in store in 2012. Keltic clothing’s design team have definitely taken inspiration for our range of corporatewear from Tommy Hilfiger and will continue to develop our new ranges with this in mind.

Paul Smith wins top fashion prize

We are delighted to hear that the fashion designer and all-round legend Sir Paul Smith is to be awarded the Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design Award. Given last year to Alexander McQueen, Sir Paul will pick up this award at the British Fashion Awards.

Sir Paul is famous for his quintessentially British tailoring, and it is his amazing eye for detail that sets his suiting apart. We take huge inspiration from Sir Paul and many of our recent corporate suits developments such as our new linings showing a map of Europe and the ruffled back panel detail on our latest ladies jacket are a respectful nod to recent Paul Smith collections.

Sir Paul, who was knighted in 2000, said his success is due to two qualities often overlooked in fashion “organisation and being down to earth”. He said “The thing I’m most proud of out of anything is continuity. I’m reliable, polite and I deliver clothes on time that are well-made at the right price”. Modest as ever! We agree wholeheartedly with this statement and believe that a uniform suit that is well made and delivered on time is the strongest foundation that a uniform suits supplier can have.  We look to recreate some of Sir Paul Smith’s magic in the uniform suits world, with a traditional work ethic, reliable service and delivery, and a keen eye for design and detail.

Previous winners of the Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design include Dame Vivienne Westwood and Stephen Jones.
