Ian scores a hole in one at St. Andrews!

On a recent trip to St. Andrews for an exhibition to show off our latest security clothing, Keltic’s very own Ian Lines scored a hole in one!

Ian on the putting green

We were at St. Andrews University demonstrating our recent security clothes innovations, and Ian and David took the time out to practice their golf skills in the evening.

So after a hard day’s work, Ian was rewarded with a couple of beers and a hole in one – not a bad day’s work all round then!

Check back next week for further Keltic antics!

Vicki’s marathon success

Vicki Whitbrook braved the weather last Sunday to compete in her first ever road marathon and completed it in just under 4hours in the worst weather conditions possible! She completed the first half of the marathon in an hour and a half but the cold soon took its toll!

Vicki before her race

She mentions this as being a ‘tough guy marathon’ having to compete against hale, rain, flooding up to her knees in parts and ferocious winds! Even main athletes were half hour over target due to the awful conditions.

However hard it was, the run was definitely worth it, there is no way for preparing for those conditions it’s just mind over matter the whole way. The run was a huge achievement for Vicki and she raised an amazing £300 with the amount still rising!

The final Sprint

We would all like to say congratulations for her success and we are very proud of her for battling on and completing the marathon in such a fantastic time. Well Done!!!

Staff uniforms on the way to being 100% recycled

Following on from our Olympics recycled uniform blog earlier this month, another great staff uniform story has caught our attention.

At Keltic, we are keen to move forward with recycling and help make our environment a much cleaner and friendly place to be, so we note with interest that the UK’s largest fast food chain McDonalds  will from 2012 be introducing 100% recycled uniforms in time for the London Olympics .

The story reported by the Guardian claims the restaurant “has been hitting back with a series of green and social initiatives” and has created “a uniform design model for the future which others can follow.”

We can all learn from this example and begin to think of the environmental impact of staff clothing, rather than it being just a uniform.

For further corporate clothing developments, keep posted!

It’s a uniform Jim, but not as we know it!

I know that’s a Star Trek, rather than Star Wars reference, but they all blend into one to me to be honest!

We couldn’t help commenting on the recent news story that George Lucas, creator of Star Wars, is in a longstanding court battle with prop designer Andrew Ainsworth over who owns the rights to the Stormtrooper uniforms used in the 1970s classic Star Wars films.

The stormtrooper uniform is one of the most iconic examples of corporate clothing in modern history. And we can see why the two parties were arguing – Ainsworth sold a single stormtrooper helmet for $97,000 back in 2004. There’s been another Star Wars film since then so today’s cost is likely to be even higher.

The corporate clothing uk market will be rocked by the decision that the case was thrown out of a British court, after it ruled that the Stormtrooper uniforms were “industrial props with utilitarian purpose” rather than “works of art”. Bad luck to Andy Ainsworth, that decision’s got to hurt.

Those of you who regularly follow this blog will remember our entry about the Parkex show in March, where our stand was visited by promotional staff dressed in Stormtrooper corporate clothing uniforms – we hope they cleared it with George Lucas!
