How Do You Break In A Carhartt?
Carhartts are heavy, stiff, and actually embroider quite easily…once we can get them hooped. They are built for tough work conditions and can last a lifetime.
So then how do you break them in? Carhartt says by “wearing them while you work hard.” But could there be a short cut? Check out the video below.
We now have access to new styles from Carhartt, from jackets and hats to tees and beanies, that are made just the decoration industry. We will be highlighting the new styles through out the month.
In the meantime if you want to browse a little, click our Carharrtt link and get shopping.
3 in 1 Jackets Re-imagined
Back in October we introduced the Collective System and have since had several customers start using this line in place of a more traditional 3 in 1 jacket. The feedback to date has been very positive. Our customers are saying that the price point is better, the mix and match options are modern and updated for today’s style trends, and the jacket line is broken down for men and ladies so everyone gets the perfect fit. Check it out and let us know what you think.
Browse the system in our on-line store.

The Collective System
Today was a beautiful fall day. Bright sun, cool breeze, white puffy clouds. And while fall is here for a bit yet, temps will be falling. Now is the time to think about what you want to do about cold weather gear. Do you get a heavy coat, a mid-weight fleece, and a rain jacket or go with a standard three in one jacket which means you have zero options should one part of the three in one system not work for you. Or do you go with the new Collective System that lets you mix and match fleece, vests, and jackets, that works best for you? (Hint – pick the Collective System)
These pieces zip in and out of the jacket as the weather changes and yet they look good on their own for the fall and spring months. (Or summer because here in New England you just never know….)
And ladies you don’t have to settle for a unisex cut. Cool colors and styles made just for you.
Not sure where to start. Start with a base layer you like. Then as your needs change add to your system. Or not. This system is all about making you comfortable.

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.

Denim Jackets Are Always In Style
While other fashion trends and styles come and go you can always count on the good old denim jacket to be in vogue. Sometimes the cut is looser, sometimes shorter, the fabric sometimes patterned, but the basic jacket style remains the same.
In our industry most folks don’t think of the denim jacket as a go to for their uniforming needs. But it shouldn’t be ruled out especially if you want to mix things up for corporate (or not so corporate) events, conferences, or parties.
Can’t use them in your day to day work wardrobe? You can use them as gifts for sales goals met, achievement awards, or as the holiday season approaches, thank you gifts. It is an item that won’t be put in the back of the closet and as we all know your employees are your best use of your advertising budget.
Don’t forget they could easily be used as a promotional item or as part of a gift basket, giveaway, or raffle.
See we are always full of ideas!

Last fall Alphabroder paired with Under Armour allowing us to bring their branded gear to you. Feel free to do a happy dance now. Dale and I did when we received samples. Yep we already have samples in the shop of some of the gear.

While doing some jacket research for a customer I ran across this new offering from Port Authority. This is a digital striped 12.8 oz fleece jacket that comes in both mens and ladies sizing. As Port Authority puts it “takes you from workout essential to sleek polished office style.” For me personally, I just like the modern look of it.
