Suit-able Workwear – Do I Need a Tie?

Suit-able Workwear – Do I Need a Tie?

For centuries, the formal suit and tie combination was seen as appropriate workwear for business professionals. Attitudes have changed and it is now reported that only around 20% of employees wear a suit and tie to the office.

As a local printers based in Chesham, we provide an alternative to traditional workwear, by offering logo embroidery on almost any style of clothing. Polo shirts with a logo on the chest are the most popular request, but we offer a full range of embroidered workwear including suits, hospitality wear, embroidered golf shirts and even ties.


Workwear – Dressed to Impress in Tring

We recently worked with Diamond Insurance in Tring, to provide their team with work shirts with logo embroidery, along with polo shirts and sweatshirts. Whether meeting clients in the office or their own homes, this uniform provides an easily identifiable corporate image.

Also in Tring, we worked with Roy Chapman’s car dealership. They needed embroidered workwear that would provide a consistent image for both the engineers and the sales team. We always use high quality garments and threads, which retain their appearance after many cycles in the washing machine. This is an essential requirement when you work in a car workshop.

Artwork Solutions

The Jolly Sportsman, our local pub in Chesham provided an additional challenge. We often have to assist with the artwork in order to convert a branded logo into a suitable format, but the pub team simply brought a photo of the pub sign. We were able to recreate the design, gain their approval and create the requested set of custom embroidered shirts.

Advantages of Corporate Clothing & Embroidered Workwear

Despite changing ideas about suitable work attire, many organisations still insist on employees wearing a uniform, but what are the advantages of corporate clothing?

Employee Mindset

Whether your team dress in embroidered tee shirts or pin striped suits, putting on a uniform helps to prepare them for work; it adjusts their thinking and attitude.

First Impressions Count

From customer service to client meetings, a uniform gives you a consistent professional appearance. As a customer, it helps to differentiate employees from members of the public.

Brand Awareness

In embroidered workwear, your employees are helping to advertise your business and build brand awareness.

Team Spirit

If everyone follows the dress code, it encourages a sense of belonging to a team. You create a business identity and save your staff the dilemma of what to wear each morning.


A uniform can also have practical benefits; from complying with health and safety regulations, to simply avoiding getting your own clothes dirty.
