  1. Work Shirts Explained

    So, you are looking to find the right work shirt – we thought we would come up with a few tips to help you browse through our catalogue of personalised work shirts.

     Most customers tend to buy shirts that are described by the manufactures as “tailored” or “fitted” in the actual hope that it will look more professional and in uniform. What you need to understand is that everyone has a different body shape and only catering for two body types can be a recipe for disaster and can hit you in the pocket!

    If you are buying a uniform for a team – try ordering some samples of different fits and styles such as slim fit, fitted, standard fit and tailored. You might also want to consider short, long and oxford shirts when you order.

     

    Fitted Shirts

    These are designed to hug your chest, arms and waist area. These shirts should feel snug but not too tight. If the shirt is too tight you will start spilling out. This style might not be the best style for you and your team.

     

    Slim Fit Shirts

    Slim fit shirts are designed to fit like a second skin and they are usually better for slimmer, more petite men and women. A slim shirt offers a curved hem, shorter sleeves which in turn makes the garment look perfect when it’s nicely tucked in.

     

    Tailored fit shirts

    These shirts are made for the average person. The garment offers more shape around the shoulder, sleeve and collar. They are usually a good bet for the whole team, but ensure you order the correct sizes for each team member!

     

    Standard Fit shirts

    Standard Fit shirts are made loose, with no darts or curved hems and often do not have collar buttons. This fit is very popular and it often offers a large range of sizes which all the other fits simply do not.

    So, if you are looking for more advice with regards to fitted shirts, slim fit shirts, tailored fit shirts or standard fit shirts please do not hesitate to speak to the team at Logos 4 Clothes on 01400 230 180 or email info@logos4clothes.com.

  2. Ten Ways to Upcycle Your Old Workwear

    Here at Logos 4 Clothes, we understand the impact textile waste can have on our fragile environment.

    As we all know synthetic clothing can take over 40 years to biodegrade, but 95% of textiles are recyclable it only makes sense that we should do whatever we can to recycle and repurpose our older pieces and save them from the landfill.

    1. Safety first

    If you have an article of clothing with reflective bands you can cut off the strips then attach them to whatever accessory of clothing suits you best. You could also sew these strips to jackets or backpacks for a safer stroll in the evenings, or even tie them around your ankles for some night time cycling. Also, you could repurpose an old reflective jacket for your dog to act as a little jacket for those night time walks.

    1. Stay Warm and also Lower those Bills.

     No one likes paying more for their bills than they have to, and one easy way to reduce overall heating expenditure is by using draught excluders. But why not make yours yourself by using an old uniform at virtually no extra cost. Here’s a video of how to do this – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqPcDkAJVbM.

    1. Make Some Extra Money

    If you’re a dab hand at sewing and D.I.Y. you can experiment with all your excess fabrics and create your products to even sell online similarly to the team behind the Bike Project charity (https://thebikeproject.co.uk/pages/mission). Proceeds from products sold on their website go towards helping refugees and there are plenty more ways to support their efforts.

    1. Scrub Up and Save Up

    According to recent surveys, the average UK households spend £125 on cleaning products every year – money they could spend on more exciting items in life! There are some products we can easily avoid buying. Like for example wet wipes and disposable cloths. It’s a shame for them to end up as waste, but it is also incredibly easy to fashion reusable alternatives at home. If you have any old uniforms or clothing maybe in a softer fabric (or other worn underwear, t-shirts you name it!) simply cut them up and into the necessary sizes. Scrub what you need and wash when used.

    1. Help a Creative

    The web is home a vast array of small artists and designers, amongst whom a significant number are involved in what is probably best described as an anti-fast fashion movement. With sites like Depop (described as the creative community’s mobile marketplace) hosting over 10 million independent merchants, these designers are not hard to find. Any many of them refuse to buy virgin fabrics – which is where you could come in.

    1. Pass Them Dove to The Youth of Today

    Remember, you don’t have to completely reinvent hi-visibility wear. If you have enough undamaged, usable fabric, you can simply save the best bits and fashion a new child-size vest. These are always useful for schools and day-care centres that take their kids on field trips. They would appreciate the gift.

    1. Good Things Come in Small Packages

    Why not make a bum bag following the steps and pattern in this inspiring video by the ProperFit Clothing company – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DdgOzArP4Xs.

    1. Get Nice and Cosy

    Remember too much fabric for your current bum bag needs. No worries.

    You may want to try a bigger D.I.Y. project like perhaps making a throw blanket or patchwork quilt. All you have to do is to save the best bits of each garment and go crazy with your artistic instincts!

    1. Fun for Your Furry Friend

    If you have a dog, why not create a snuffle mat? Dogs love them and they are simple to make. All you need is a pair of scissors, some old clothes and fabrics and a drain mat. Once you have these materials to hand follow these steps:-

    • Cut your fabric into some long strips. Vary the sizes if you like, but ensure that they are long enough to complete the following steps.
    • Loop each strip through two neighbouring holes in the drain mat. With the long ends facing upwards – away from the ground. Then tie them into a knot.
    • Repeat this until you have every hole filled – going over holes multiple times if necessary.
    • Tie any remaining strips around the perimeter of the mat to hide the rubber edge.
    • Then, the fun starts…let your dog loose!
    1. Reinvent to Look

    For many years the world of fashion has taken a great deal of inspiration from labourer’s uniforms, but we are starting to see it go a stage further now for the sake of the environment.

    Too many used uniforms have been discarded as trash and therefore save them from the landfill and you can do the same. Here are some little tweaks that you can do to transform a look. For example, why not embrace the cargo pant trend by attaching a decorative chain to the belt loops of your work trousers – any colour works.

    Chains can be bought from eBay from as little as £1.39, whereas a brand new pair of carbo trousers can cost up to £45. So even if you’d rather gift this look than wear it yourself it’s certainly worth a try!

  3. 5 Reasons Why Creating a Uniform is a Great Idea for your Business

    1. It Promotes Trust

    In the same way that a police uniform identifies a law officer to you, a uniform can identify someone which is out in the future making a service call or travelling to visit a customer home. A uniform eases the mind of the customers letting a plumber into their homes, or handing over the keys to a motorbike mechanic when their bike needs servicing.

    1. A sense of belonging

    Employees wearing the same clothes feel a sense of commonness and belonging. This is quite difficult to achieve otherwise and adds a degree of motivation and pride for the employee.

    1. Corporate Branding

    When you ask employees to wear uniforms in your distinctive colours this can have a real effect in cementing an impression in the mind of the customer. Uniforms act as a further distinguishing mark from competitors and therefore helping to reinforce your brand. Furthermore, consistency in your employees’ appearance with the overall branding effort will have a very positive impression on the customer and enhance the corporate image you portray.

     

    1. No need for a dress code!

    In today’s workplace trying to enforce a dress code is very problematic at best. Often boundaries are hazy and this can lead to resentful feelings from the employees who are told their attire is not appropriate for the workplace. Some employees often see receiving a uniform as a perk of the job. Often it can encourage people to apply for a job and represents considerable conservation of effort and time for the employee who doesn’t have to foot the bill for their work attire.

     

    1. Projecting Professionalism

    In customer-facing businesses its important to look professional, uniform and ready to serve. Uniforms make staff identifiable, letting customers seek out help in a store if they need it. Staff wearing uniforms inspire confidence by letting customers know that the person is professional and with product knowledge and also keen to help. With uniforms, employees take on the reputation of the company making them look trustworthy as the company you have built.

  4. Wear a beauty tunic and stand out from the crowd

    When you work in the beauty industry, should you wear a Beauty Tunic, as this is the first impression that anyone will judge. If you don’t look professional why would someone continue to use your services, no matter how good a job you have done for them. Here we’ll explore why our personalised beauty tunics can help your business to give the right impression.

  8. Keep your workforce warm this winter

    Come rain or shine, sales never stop and with it looking highly unlikely that the weather will be warming up any time soon, as an employer or business you need to be making sure that you have and are making the right provisions to keep you and your workforce going.

    Kitting your team out in the right kind of attire when they are out and about, working, promoting or networking with consumers, other companies and colleagues is beneficial for a happy workforce. If you are one of many companies that are likely to be continuing promotions through the cooler months you will want to ensure that your employees work at their most optimum levels by keeping them warm.

    From waterproofs through to woolly hats, branded, embroidered and promotional outerwear can be a great way to promote your company whether you want your team to look professional, carry your name or look the part.

    From simple printed characters and embroidered logos right through to customised colours, zippers and logo tags our ranges of promotional clothing garments are perfect for winter, because when the bitter cold sets in, promotional t-shirts and polo-shirts won’t be enough to keep the cold out.

    Instead take a look at jackets, fleeces, hoodies and sweaters which can all be provided in varied styles, colours and designs enabling you to keep your winter workwear consistent with your purpose and branding to suit varied body shapes and sizes so that you can find the right item for every member of your team.

    Promotional activity, in whatever industry, has three main purposes:

    • Creating recognition for your brand or company
    • Building customer loyalty and confidence
    • Increasing sales and profits

    Much like a business card in a formal meeting, embroidered and personalised clothing can provide an excellent talking point, create a buzz around your brand and trigger awareness and collective consistency for your workforce setting you apart from competitors.

    There are many garments that you can use to kit out your workforce this winter:

    Personalised fleeceFleeces

    Great for wearing over a polo-shirt or t-shirt and if it needs to be taken off when moving to promote indoors, our range of fleeces come in various options such as reversibility, full zips, quarter zips and micro-fleece fabrics. Available in numerous fabrics from polyester to combined cottons, our promotional fleeces ensure that you and your promotional staff are kept toasty while outdoors.

    Hoodies

    With the added extra of a hood to protect ears and the head, our selection of hoodies offer more informal promotional wear for winter. If you are looking to promote to a younger clientele or work within the leisure industry these hoodies offer breathability, varied designs, and materials which can be suited to your requirements.

    personalised jacketJackets

    Winter brings with it dreary wet weather, moist air and sometimes (if you’re lucky) snow. With this in mind, ensuring that your staff are prepared when they’re out promoting, with an embroidered or printed jacket could maximise your success. Have your brand or logo clearly placed onto the back or arms of a jacket to make sure your staff can be seen when out promoting for your company. With various weights and waterproof materials available you can prepare them for every eventuality.

    Prepare…

    With more and more businesses now finding that year long promotions are having to be undertaken, there has never been a more prominent time to make sure that your staff are prepared in advance of Winter and ready to work during the Christmas rush.

    Remember that winter promotional wear doesn’t have to just be for your staff, you can even extend your branding to FREE customer giveaways and with product launches so that when a customer walks around with your jacket, fleece, sweatshirt or hoodie on, you have earned yourself some free promotion.
