With the continuing shift to a service-based economy and the changing demographics of the work force, the word "uniform" has taken on a new meaning when it comes to work wear. Forget the stereotypes and the traditional. Today’s uniforms, especially in service-based industries, are comfortable, fashionable, functional and casual. In many cases, they’re not even uniform, at least in the traditional sense of the term. From golf shirts and twills and even T’s and fleece, styles and colors being mixed and matched adding to the diversity while still maintaining the integrity and purpose of the uniform – quick and easy identification of brand or position. The continuing trend provides exciting options for companies everywhere. The latest styles in uniform trends are casual, friendly, approachable, colorful, functional, tasteful, identifiable and, most of all, professional.
