New corporate suit collection interprets latest fashion trends

Jared Leto has landed a modelling contract with Hugo Boss, and in the latest issue of GQ

he’s wearing a rather fetching slim-lapel suit, much like our own Milan Jacket. Our Milan Jacket also includes a number of other key details such as a ticket pocket.

Our Corporate Wear Department interpret the latest fashions from the catwalk and the high end retail brands into fabrics and styles that will perform and last when worn as part of a work uniform.

Olympic uniforms made from recycled material – is this the way forward for corporate workwear?

To celebrate 323 days to go until the London Olympic Games 2012 we spotted a very interesting story in relation to the new Olympic uniforms for 2012. Plans are to be put in place for the new corporate work wear to be made from recycled material including special recycled shoes, buttons and drinking bottles to be the first 100% recycled bottle in the world.

We find this to be an exciting story within the workwear and corporate clothing sector as going green and recycling is the way to go for the future.  We may even see future developments in corporate workwear whereby off the shelf uniforms will be made in more ‘green’ ways.

The Chief executive Herbert Hainer for the Olympic Games has said that ‘Every product within the volunteer staff and the torch relay and within the village will have recycled material.’ Who knows what the future holds for corporate workwear uk products if these recycled uniforms are a success for the Games.

How to care for your office suits

Below are our great tips on the care and cleaning of your suits. By following these easy care instructions, you will guarantee to maintain the looks of your tailored office suit.

Office suit

care for your Office suits

For weekly care always rotate your garments. After each wear, brush your jacket and hang it up on a hanger that fits the shoulders.

 

 

Washcare instructions for your office suits:

1. Empty all pockets and remove any badges from your jacket.  Place garments into the washing machine with garments made from the same fabric and colour only.

2.  Machine wash as wool on 30degree setting and short spin cycle.

3.  Remove Garments immediately from the machine when the wash is finished.

4.  To Dry: place the jacket back on the hanger; shake into shape by gently straightening the seams.

5. Fold the trousers to the front creases and hang on a separate hanger.

6. Allow both garments to dry naturally.

7. Do not tumble dry.

Finishing: If required, press the garments using a cool iron over a damp cloth.

We recommend washing your office suit jacket between 4-6 times per year.  If your jacket is badly stained you should have it professionally dry cleaned.  Washing and cleaning too often will reduce the life of all clothing.

It is a good idea to have your jacket pressed professionally at the dry cleaners once a year to reinvigorate the jacket and give it that factory finished look it had when new.

We hope this advice comes in useful, for further information on our office suits or further garments feel free to contact us – were here to help!

Send us your corporate wear photos & win a bottle of Moet!

We follow all the latest news on corporate wear uk and around the world, and were really taken by one recent article. New Yorker Sheena Matheiken of the Daily Telegraph decided to wear the same dress every day for a year, both as a comment on the fashion world, and to raise money for a good cause. This spurned numerous other people to follow suit (pardon the pun!).

The idea of wearing one dress every day really struck a chord with us as corporate wear suppliers, because obviously the point of corporatewear is that it is worn every day and gives a unified look to a workforce.

corporate wear photo prize

The photos of Sheena in her rather interesting dress (ahem!) got us thinking – and we’ve come up with a competition as a result. Post photos of you or your colleagues in your corporatewear on our Facebook page, and the one with the most ‘likes’ will win a bottle of champagne. So, get your colleagues and friends liking your picture!

We look forward to your entries!

The history of corporate uniforms

Anyone interested in the history of the corporate uniform should get themselves to The National Maritime Museum in London over the summer.

The museum has over 7000 corporate uniform items – one of the biggest collections we know of. Highlights include a captain’s full dress coat of the same 1774 pattern worn by Captain Cook, and three coats belonging to Lord Nelson including the uniform he was wearing when fatally wounded at Trafalgar.

There is also a superb example of one of the first Royal Navy corporate uniforms.

Anyone with an interest in the history of uniform design and manufacture, as well as more broadly in dress codes and fashions since 1600, should give it a visit!
