“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.
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.
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.
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.
2011 has been a great year for fashion, and winners for the 2011 awards includes icons such as Tom Ford who won International Designer of the year, Christopher Kane Courtney who won best British Designer, Coco Rocha for Best Model and Style Icon the young Emma Watson. 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.
Keep posted for more great corporatewear UK and international news on fashion and be the first to hear about our exciting new developments.
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.
At Keltic we are always willing to take part in charity events and raise money for a good cause. Last weekend our very own corporatewear department took part in the Cancer Research Race for Life, raising £252 between them.
The day was clouded over and they got caught in a number of downpours but they carried on and finished within the hour. Our brand new School Crossing Patrol department is also taking part in next weekend’s run, to raise further money for such a good cause.
Our corporate wear supplier team thoroughly enjoyed their day and are already planning for next year’s event!
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.
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!
There are many different style uniforms on the market today, all doing different jobs for different roles, but which really are the best corporate wear uniforms for in the office?
A recent BBC study posted February this year suggests a large decline in smart suits, and reports that smart casual wear is on the rise. There are many benefits of casual corporate wear. By wearing casual uniforms such as polo shirts and smart fleeces, this can help staff feel more comfortable whilst in the office. It’s been suggested the more informal the office, the better the communication which can lead to lower stress levels within the busy working environment.
This can bring up much debate about the image an office environment should portray. A counter argument is if you look professional in your job, you act more professionally too. It’s suggested that people will take you a lot more seriously if dressed in a smart suit and this can provide a lasting first impression of sophistication and professionalism for your company.
As a leading corporate wear supplier, we would add to the debate that whichever type of uniform you choose, be it a suit or casual workwear, it must be well-fitting, well cared-for and kept looking smart and crisp at all times. We’ve all seen ill-fitting poorly-pressed suits and stained ties, and this can convey a slovenly image. Conversely, polos and chinos don’t need to look too “dressed down” if they have smart embroidery and are in your company colours. The old lines between smart and casual are definitely blurring as fashions and attitudes change.
We blog every day with tips and advice on how to portray a professional corporatewear image so check back soon for further posts.
Corporate wear clothing is a must for many corporate companies. A smart appearance from wearing good, quality clothing is a no-brainer, but choosing your supplier for your clothing can be. The overall concept of a corporate supplier isn’t rocket science; they buy corporate clothing from several well established wholesalers and manufacturers and sell it at a profit, usually adding embroidery, printing or labels along the way. Most often the end user wouldn’t be able to tell the difference of whether they are purchasing their uniform from a family team working from their garage or a large scale company with thousands of resources.
Of course I’m not knocking any family businesses that started from a garage because I work for one, speaking of which if you would like to learn about our roots of manufacturing waxed jackets simply click here. Smaller, local companies such as ourselves can provide you with as excellent service as larger companies; whether it’s calling in to see you and help with uniform choices or being a reliable voice on the end of the phone to guide you every step of the way. Aside from these, I wanted to provide you with a few other ideas to keep in mind when choosing your uniform supplier.
1. Choose a company who will help you to organise the chaos.
If you have ordered corporate wear in the past, you will likely be aware of the hundreds of options available for each garment type you require. If the supplier you are looking at just lists everything on their website, throws you a pack of brochures and leaves you to it isn’t doing their job correctly. They need to be asking about the job roles your staff are performing and recommending the perfect garments to suit them with reasons as to why.
2. Choose a company which holds a good range of stock.
All companies run out of stock of their items sometimes, but a supplier who never seems to have the garments you need ready to dispatch should ring alarm bells. Find out how often your supplier has deliveries of your items and whether they’re likely to be discontinued in the future to prevent any future difficulties when it comes to re-ordering.
3. Choose a company which will supply you with samples prior to ordering.
Requesting samples of clothing sounds confusing but is actually really simple. Choose the garments you like the look of which suit your needs and you will be sent a sample of each for you to try on for free. This service prevents issues with the uniform once it has been rolled out to your staff and reduces risk when buying for multiple departments. Be wary of suppliers who does not offer this service, time and time again we see issues where the uniform wasn’t suitable for our customers and they have asked us to help them.
When you do make the decision on your choice of corporate wear supplier, take these points in to consideration and make sure you are getting the best possible service for your money. A less than outstanding service and stock of garments will just cause problems in the long run and more frustration when you should not have encountered them in the first place.
