Essential Outerwear

Having just finished the hottest August on record you are probably not really in the mood to be thinking about jackets. That’s why you have us to remind you that the cool fall temps which will bring fridge winter temps are not far off.

Brand essential from NorthEnd, Dri-Duck, Marmot and Spyder (yes you read that right…check out page 22) are now available.

Don’t get caught out in the cold…okay I had to go there.

Can Aprons be Cool?

Why yes they can. And the folks at Uncommon Threads can show you just how cool they can be. A lot of our vendors offer aprons and chef coats as a convenience. And to be honest they are perfectly fine but a little boring. Uncommon Threads elevates the aprons and chef coats to a whole new level…because why be boring?


And don’t think these items are just for restaurants, cafes, or food trucks.  The aprons can be perfect for:

  • Art studios hosting paint nights
  • Volunteers working in kitchens or making charitable food deliveries
  • Teachers, parents, and students for school events
  • Corporate team building
  • Event employees who need to handle tickets, money, or other small items

One District…Finally….

I did a happy dance when I found out the District brand is now just one name. The styles and the fits are the same they only difference is the inside label. This will make my job of recommending styles much much easier. No more is this the junior fit or the ladies fit or the tight fit or the loose fit. Just one name, one great product.

New items from District are coming soon and in the 2019 catalogs we have on order they will have everything grouped together for your browsing convenience. In the meantime click the District link to see what styles might make you do the happy dance for your next event.
