Uniform rules ok? Boy defies “no shorts” rule & wears a skirt!

Here’s a light-hearted story for a Friday. A 12 year old boy has launched a one-man campaign for justice by defying school uniform rules that outlawed shorts and wearing a skirt to school!

The young man borrowed his 11-year-old sister Joanna’s skirt, complaining that “I realised short skirts are allowed but shorts are not, which means there is something wrong in the rules and it should be changed. I thought I could use this silly loophole to my advantage.” We doubt that his own particular brand of political protest made him that popular with his mates, but this discussion of uniforms certainly caught the eye of the Sky News.

The sight of a line of po-faced young lads holding up banners proclaiming “Cool shorts not hot pants” and “”What’s wrong with my legs?” certainly amused us and put us in a jovial mood for the weekend, which is set to be a sunny one according to the weatherman.

Have a great bank holiday weekend, and we’ll be blogging again early next week on the topic of uniforms uk and worldwide.

Are uniforms an effective marketing tool? Yes! says new study

Hot on the heels of Louise’s Latest article, Branded corporate clothing made easy, a new American study published in March this year by Suffolk University (Boston, USA) certainly struck a chord.

Research shows that uniforms supplied for your staff with your company branding are a more effective marketing tool than almost all other methods of advertising. This includes not only traditional tools such as newspapers and the yellow pages but crucially (74.4%) of respondents stated uniform programs are more effective than more modern tools such as internet and TV ads. 

This is a very exciting statistic to bear in mind both for companies thinking of providing uniforms for their staff and also for a uniform supplier such as ourselves. By using uniforms as a marketing tool, you are not only saving major costs on advertising through big media, you are also allowing your staff to feel involved in the promotion of your business. The uniform study was based on over 250 questionnaires across a broad range of company sectors, and all those questioned concluded that staff that were regularly observed by the public wearing company uniforms made for a better marketing tool.

I hope this has presented something of interest and given you something new to think about when considering your next uniform design.
