We all are familiar with the concepts of “casual Friday” at work, and “business casual” for events like tradeshows. But there’s another category of dress that’s becoming more important in corporate America and that’s “boardroom casual” and it borrows heavily from traditional private school clothing. Think sweaters over a dress shirt and tie, and blazers. A dressy-preppy kind of look that forgoes the traditional suit, but that’s perfect for a custom embroidered corporate brand on shirts, sweaters, and ties. It’s branded dressing at its best!

Support our Troops – Wear Red Shirts to Work on Fridays

There are a growing number of working Americans who wear red shirts to work each Friday as a show of support of our military troops. This isn’t meant to be a political message – whether one supports the actual military campaign or administration isn’t the issue. The donning of red shirts one day each week is meant to show support and respect for the men and women who have given their time and lives in service to our Country. It can be a stunningly visual display to see your company’s entire staff in red shirts on Fridays when they are preparing for a weekend off with friends and family while knowing that so many other families are missing that time with a loved one who’s serving far away from home.
