Gear Up Your Workers for Cold Weather With Fall Uniforms

When it comes to winter in Chicago, you never know what Mother Nature will throw at us. We are known as the Windy City for a reason. Although we can’t control the weather, we can prepare for it with the right employee work uniforms and apparel. Being owned and operated locally in Chicago for over 100 years, Roscoe knows winter. From insulated, high visibility outerwear to sweaters and fleece, Roscoe has the fall & winter employee uniforms you need to protect your team against the cold, rain, and wind.

Consider the following winter apparel for your workforce to keep them comfortable and productive regardless of the weather.

Insulated and Waterproof Work Jackets

Insulated and waterproof jackets are necessary for workers who spend most of their time outdoors in fall and winter. Construction, loading dock and warehouse, groundskeeping, transportation, and utility employees, to name a few, are at risk for cold weather conditions such as frostbite and hypothermia. You may also consider insulated jackets for workers who move in and out of buildings or vehicles, such as car dealership personnel, delivery drivers, facility managers, fire, police, and EMTs. Insulated jackets are available in various styles, including high visibility and flame-resistant fabrics.

Quilted Vest

Quilted vests are a great way to layer up and protect your team members from the elements. Paired with an insulated jacket they provide an extra layer of protection from the harsh winter conditions. If you are looking for extra warmth without the bulk of a coat, a quilted vest is a great option for seasonal transitions.

Work Shirts & Coveralls

Long sleeve industrial work shirts keep employees comfortable and protected on the job. Made for durability, long sleeve work shirts feature the same safety and flexibility as their short sleeve counterparts. Long sleeve work shirts are perfect for employees working in cooler environments, such as cold storage, auto body garages, warehouses, and loading docks. They offer greater warmth without added bulk.

Coveralls offer head-to-toe protection in one garment and provide maximum warmth over other protective garments, such as overalls or aprons. Coveralls are also available in insulated models for employees who spend much of their time outside and require full body protection.

Dress Shirts

When it’s time to put short-sleeved polo shirts away, turn to sweaters and dress shirts for your employees. Available in multiple fabrics, such as Oxford, cotton, and men’s and women’s styles, dress shirts make it easy for office, sales, customer service, and retail employees to dress stylishly and professionally. Branded dress shirts make your staff a team and eliminate the burden of maintaining a professional wardrobe or wondering what to wear for your employees.

Just because winter is around the corner doesn’t mean you have to give up the clean and professional look of branded employee uniforms. Winter weather apparel can be customized with your brand and logo, so your staff is identifiable even when bundled up.

Roscoe’s employee uniform rental program makes it easy to provide your team with clean and well-maintained workwear for the job. Our use of RFID and advanced garment tracking technology ensures your items are never lost and delivered on time.
