Workplace Hand Dryers Could Be Making Your Hands Dirtier

Hand air dryers found in many workplace bathrooms could be making your hands dirtier – sucking up bacteria from the bathroom air and depositing it onto your just-washed hands. That was what researchers found in a widely reported study last year.

Now Available: Carhartt Outerwear for the Coldest Cold

Now Available: Carhartt Outerwear for the Coldest Cold

At Roscoe we know work doesn't stop just because the mercury takes a dive. We've spent nine decades in the business of getting some of the hardest working people in the Chicago area dressed for work. Outerwear is something we take very seriously in these parts. Seriously. It's been cold. You may have heard.

Still. It's Chicago, and in Chicago, we know the difference between outerwear that works and outerwear that just takes up space.

That's why, beginning this month, we're adding the Carhartt line of outerwear to our corporate apparel offerings. Carhartt has been dressing hard-working employees since Hamilton Carhartt first created a bib overall for the railroad industry in 1889. Together we offer you and your team some of the finest cold-weather work garments available anywhere, along with a combined 228 years of first-rate customer service.
