Editor's Picks: Just What the Doctor Ordered
My best friend's father, whom I've known since elementary school, is a painter and contractor. About a decade ago I said, "Dave, why do painters always wear all white? Why don't they wear a color that would hide paint instead of show it?" Without missing a beat he looked my oxford-and-pleated-pants outfit up and down and said, with a smirk, "So you can tell we've been working."
The same principal applies to all uniforms. It doesn't matter if it's a chef's apron or police officer's blue button-down, seeing someone in such an outfit tells you they are working, even without the splattered Sherwin-Williams. There may be no uniform that better conveys this than doctor scrubs, which just so happen to be available from a number of promotional product suppliers. Take a look below for a selection of popular promotional scrubs, or check out our full selection of uniform apparel, including painters' outfits, on our search engine. See Dave, I work too.
Stand Back, I'm Doing Science
Nothing says authority, or mad scientist, like a lab coat. SanMar's Full Length Lab Coat works for both. The 80/20 poly/cotton coat includes pockets and a five-button closure to help protect clothing from germs, spills and evil minions. (Evil minion protection not guaranteed.)
The Bill Blass Ladies' Cross-over Scrub Top from One Stop Inc. has a self-fabric tie and belt loops to keep the garment secure and snag-free. The 4.5 oz., 65/35 poly/cotton top has mock wrap styling, and includes two side pockets with self-fabric cross-over.
Cap and Trade
Let's be honest: scrub caps are not designed with style in mind. Still, that doesn't mean they can't have a good-looking print. The Bouffant Caps from Aprons 'n More are available in 65/35 polycotton poplin or 100 percent tropical print cotton sheeting. They are available in over 10 colors and patterns and have room for a 6x3" imprint on the front.
