WORKWEAR

Workwear, or corporatewear, or uniforms  are different but overlapping sectors of the clothing industry. They cover a wide  variety of  garment types, including overalls  providing rugged protective clothing for manual workers, and corporate uniforms that provide a form of branding for the company, but must also be durable and easy to maintain. All must be hard wearing and functional. Much workwear requires specialist factories with the right machinery to provide satisfactory results.

Recently Workwear and  utlity styling has become very fashionable. There is something quite fascinating about the construction of functional garments, from hunting jackets and riding jackets, to military wear. They are utility clothing, constructed primarily to be functional rather than attractive. But at the same time, it is this functionality that makes the clothing look attractive.

Corporate clothing  is a very competitive but growing sector of the clothing market within the U.K. While it is a good niche area of clothing with plenty of potential for  startup companies, cost and quality is vitally important . Unlike a business that sells  directly to the public, the customers are generally established hard business people with tight deadlines. They can decide to reject garments for any number of different reasons, real or invented.

While I would not generally  recommend  getting into workwear as a business, because it is a hard area to be successful in, it can provide excellent returns for those who can get it right. In order to get it right obviously it is necessary to start with the right designs, patterns and samples.

I have been involved with a lot of workwear of all types over the years and made the patterns for a number of iconic British brands, such as Virgin Atlantic Airways, and The Dorchester Hotel.
