Winter Uniforms from The Loop provide staff with superior warmth, durability and will ensure comfort throughout the cold winter months. When considering your companies winter uniform requirements, it is important to keep in mind three key areas.
- Comfort – How often are your staff outside? Whats the environment like, drafty warehouse, office bound or on site rain or shine?
- Functionality – What are their day to day activities? If the role is active, breathability along with warmth need to be considered. How durable does the fabric need to be to ensure replacement costs are low? The functionality of your winter uniform can have an impact on your staff’s performance. Do they need access to pockets, ID cards? Or are they going from a warm office to a cold warehouse all day and need to add a layer quickly.
- Easy Care – The lower the maintenance the better the outcome for you and staff. You can never assume that people will take care of uniforms like you would like them too. This is why we ensure all our uniform fabrics are low maintenance.
- Professionalism – Does the winter uniform reflect your brands or companies professionalism? It’s no good turning up to a corporate event wearing the lowest cost fleece you could fine. What message does that send? The same can be said for over-dressing your staff.
Below are our key fabric that we utilizing in our winter uniform designs. All are used specifically for corporate uniform and workwear use.

Polyester Fleece – Keeping You Warm Rain Or Shine
Polyester fleece is one of the greatest synthetic fibers when looking for a winter uniform that will suit both wet and dry environments. With fast drying properties, polyester fleece is very popular for workwear winter uniforms. As it will dry fast both over night in the wash or at site with a little sunshine.
Hi Vis Winter Uniforms are also predominantly in polyester fleece. This is due to polyester fabric being both affordable and it’s ability to hold it’s luminescence in both wet and dry conditions.
The negative side to polyester is it’s static electricity that it can create. Making this not suitable at all for electrical or gas fitting jobs. These roles are more suited to natural fibers such as cotton or merino wool.
