2019, the Year of the Jacket

Chloe Sharplin - Wednesday, May 01, 2019

According to the super-powers of corporate clothing design, 2019 is the Year of the Jacket. We’re embracing this concept in our own way with jackets that truly put the fashion into uniforms.


When you look at our new corporate wear range, you’ll see fashion directions that pay homage to iconic shapes and statement fabrics, like Scottish plaids, houndstooth checks, rustic twills, satin trims and fine suiting that’s machine washable. And when you compare our styles with what’s happening in designer corporate wear, it’s clear that these new additions are on-trend.

Classic with a contemporary twist


There’s more than a touch of Champs Elysees to our Collarless Round Neck Mid Sleeve Jacket. The houndstooth is a heritage check that looks great on all body shapes. A satin trim to accentuate detailing provides an extra touch of luxe. This jacket can come with a matching skirt or you could pair it with a wide or straight legged crop trouser.


An excellent choice for hotels and banks

For industries that benefit from a fashion-esque approach to uniform - like finance, hospitality and real estate - this fresh territory for jackets and suits is great for self-esteem and confidence. While a uniform might be required for the job, our designs are proof that regulated corporate dressing is no hindrance to personal style. If you’d like to develop a new-look corporate wardrobe that’s right up to date, call us on +64 9 299 6984 or send a message.


Designs we’ve been saving up for winter

Our devotion to jackets isn’t confined to office wear. We also produce rainwear, active wear and other forms of technical clothing. A recent arrival to our range is a long-line parka jacket that’s earning rave reviews. Tying at the front, it’s an easy smart-casual layer to add when the temperature drops


Our next jacket direction will really stand out!

We’re aware that some of our customers need a jacket that stands out for safety reasons, so high-visibility is our next frontier. We have an exciting design in the pipeline that combines high-viz colour with timeless styling. We’ll tell you more about it soon.
