Corporate apparel is an important budget item for many companies. It’s important to choose apparel carefully to avoid added expense and to ensure the apparel is something people will actually want to wear. Here are some tips for choosing appropriate corporate apparel.
1. Apparel should feel good to the wearer. Itchy, uncomfortable items are a waste of money. Part of the reason companies order custom apparel is that it acts as automatic advertising every time it is worn. However, some companies make the mistake of choosing corporate apparel on price alone, which results in uncomfortable clothes that no one wants to wear. Be sure to test clothing before purchase to ensure it’s comfortable.
2. Apparel should wash well. No one wants a shirt that has to be ironed after every wash. In addition, companies don’t want people wearing apparel bearing their name that looks threadbare, dingy or unkempt. It’s important to ensure that corporate apparel is easy to clean, durable and looks great right out of the dryer.
3. Apparel should be affordable. Of course, companies must work within a budget when choosing apparel. In fact, it is the budget that usually causes companies to buy cheap apparel that causes the problems mentioned above. The best way to ensure that your apparel is high quality enough to look good and wear well without breaking the budget is to choose a vendor, stick with this vendor and buy in quantity. A long-term vendor can learn your preferences, sell to you in volume and give you their very best discount.
Taking these tips into consideration should help you to choose apparel that looks great and that employees are proud to wear. With the right vendor, you’re sure to be able to offer the best apparel available at the best cost.
