Looking into the Future of Corporate Uniforms

October 1, 2018 · Print This Article

Did you know that the largest concentration camp in Johannesburg was located in Bassonia where the Turffontein Race Course is now and housed 5000 people?

There have been noticeable trends in the corporate clothing market such that the term ‘Trend forecasting’ that is commonly used in the financial sense can now also apply to this market. Here are a few trends in the uniforms and corporate clothing market that you should take note of:

  • Styles continue to change

In the past, corporate clothing was generally limited to golf shirts, t-shirts and caps. Companies are increasingly looking for ways to differentiate themselves from the competition, which means that corporate clothing manufacturers are vastly expanding their ranges. Some of the latest trending items include polo shirts, beanies, scarves and branded sportswear. If you are considering investing in corporate clothing for your employees, be sure to take your time browsing through clothing catalogues before you make your decision. You will be amazed by the sheer number of options available on the market today!

  • Item individualisation

While some employees will regard corporate clothing as a perk, others may not like the idea of wearing something that can be seen as a ‘uniform’. In this case, it’s great to be able to give employees options so that they can use their branded clothes as an opportunity to express their individuality. Instead of only having a few options in one colour, why not have a few different patterns and styles designed in various shades of your corporate colours. This will get employees involved in the creative process and give them a sense of ownership.
