It is important when purchasing your workwear to be getting value for money. You want it to be going the distance and be able to cope with the general wear and tear of your job.
There are cheaper options on the market, however you will quickly learn that it is false economy, with the items having to be replaced often, having implications on both your budget and the environment.
Here are 3 quick tips you can use to ensure you’re getting good quality hi-vis workwear (see the image):
- The seam lines will be double stitched and reinforced with overlocking – this will prevent seam lines tears.
- The button holes will be finished neatly with minimal loose threads – a tight stitch on the button holes will mean that it keeps its shape.
- Lastly, ensure the buttons are stitched using a cross stitch rather than hoop. (When you look at the button face on, there will be an X shape with the thread). There should also be a mound of thread on it rather than just 4 or 5 lines.
Remember investing in quality up front will mean your workwear will last longer and be a more professional representation of your brand.
