This continuing debate reignited this week in the Houses of Parliament. There, there has always been a dress code ( for men only why?). Some of the ties our legislators wear are either boring or comic so probably better off than on.
As a leading uniform designer and manufacturer John Marks has a vested interest in how people look at work, because of our geographical spread we have to meet the needs of many cultures, what is formal in Papua New Guinea is slightly different to Munich,, our logistics team have to very careful.
Today the world of clothing is in a sort of flux, the rapid advance of layering (fka printing) new fibers and constructions, change in body shapes, means John Marks is having to see itself as a technology company as well as a top design studio.
This week is the high spot for uniforms on parade, Wimbledon where people want to look like member of the All England Club or of course players. To Lords for the test match, the ultimate uniform brigade, the bacon egg colours feature on ties (obligatory) jackets (obligatory) socks, underpants,( optional) handkerchiefs and cushions.
John Marks Uniforms loves style and we welcome all efforts among our varied client base to liven up their work clothing. Our clothes now look so good, staff want to wear them out of the work place. The inland revenue now ask us to put labels on these garments to avoid the staff having to pay income tax, success comes with a price.
TO TIE OR NOT TO TIE ? YES BRING BACK HAND TIED BOWS
