On Trend Bar & Casual Dining Uniforms

There’s no getting away from it, the grungy urban look uniform is very in at the moment. It really has to be though, with all that wood and eclectic styling many pubs and restaurants have adopted. It demands that their staff look cool and casual yet still retain some connection to the surroundings and the company brand. “Not easy”, I hear you say. Well, you’d be surprised.

The newest ranges have been specifically designed with this look in mind. T-shirts compliment trousers, shirts pair with aprons, all coming in a great selection of colours. From stripy long-john T’s to contemporary wax look aprons there’s a style that will enhance any type of business. You just have to get the right combination.

Off the shelf uniforms subtly matched can look great but it’s when you get into personalisation that these relatively normal garments come into their own. Almost anything can be customised; shirts can be given mandarin collars or roll sleeves, aprons contrast fabric halters and ties, and everything can be branded with either embroidery, printing or embossing. Getting creative can really separate your brand from the rest and give your uniform that unique feel. 

Strangely, the tweed styled waistcoats can come under this banner too. Once the stalwart of the country house hotel these waistcoats are now seen as an elegant addition for front of house and waiting staff and can elevate any uniform to new heights.
Likewise, a leather apron oozes class. A wide selection is available with tablet pocket, short bar, long waist, short bib, long bib and cross back bib coming in three colours.

All are handmade in the UK making these easily customisable with brand embroidery or embossing, pocket number and position, and alternative buckles and clasps. Rugged and hard wearing these waterproof aprons protect the wearer from those inevitable spills but are easily cleaned with a wipe from a damp cloth.

And the handmade British connection doesn’t stop there. If you’re looking for something a bit lighter, denim or cotton canvas may be right for you. Although maybe not as tough as the British bull hide the fabrics can still stand up to a fair bit of abuse and fit that urban style nicely. Again these are very customisable with an array of halters and ties, studs and fasteners, and do of course, take embroidery well.
