OF DETAILS In honor of those little things that make big differences, here’s a reference guide for getting details to work for you in many different areas – from garment measurement guides and maintenance tutorials to small steps that can improve your life at work and at home.

CARING FOR YOUR CLOTHES THESE SHORT TUTORIALS WILL WALK YOU THROUGH COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT GARMENT MAINTENANCE TO KEEP YOUR WARDROBE ALL BUTTONED-UP.

HOW TO IRON A SHIRT Start with the unbuttoned shirt’s back, making sure it’s flat on the board with the sleeves hanging off either side of the rounded end. Move in gentle circular motions, working from the center to the side seams. Use a little steam throughout, especially with cotton. Now a sleeve. Place the underarm seam straight along the board and nearest to you. Making sure it’s smooth, hold it tight and flat while you firmly iron the seam itself. Work away from the seam, being careful to sharpen any pleats. Repeat with other sleeve.

Open each cuff completely with the button facing up, ironing from the sleeve edge of the cuff out toward the ends and sides. Iron each side of the front separately, laying it flat and smoothing it out. Work around the buttons and make sure to firmly iron both plackets (the strips with the buttons and buttonholes). Work from the plackets to the side seams. Open the collar faceup and lay it fully flat. Use tiny circular movements to work from the outside edge of the collar. Keep the iron pointed toward the shirt label. Then fold the collar down and firmly press in the top ridge with your fingers.

HOW TO SEW A BUTTON

28

1. Make a 1/8-inch stitch in the shirt, leaving a three-inch end of loose thread. Make another 1/8-inch stitch perpendicular to the last, making a cross.

3. Tightly wrap the thread around the bunch of threads between the button and cloth to create a tight pillar.

2. Holding the button 1/8 inch away from the shirt, thread the needle up through one hole and down through the diagonally opposite hole. Do the same with the other holes. Repeat four times.

4. Push the needle through this pillar a few times, then cut the thread near the pillar. The button should now be secure.

UNIFORM CARE HOW TO REMOVE A STAIN COFFEE & TEA Rinse with peroxide, white vinegar or club soda.

1

Blot, don’t rub. Rubbing damages the fibers, removes dyes and can spread the stain.

2

Act quickly. The faster you respond, the better your chances of saving your garment.

3

Know your limits. You might hurt more than you help on oil-based stains. Get it dry cleaned.

BLOOD Rub fabric against itself under cold water. Avoid hot water, which will set the stain.

GREASE & OIL Blot any excess with a napkin. Work baking soda or cornstarch into stain to draw it out. Launder with a heavy-duty detergent. INK Douse with aerosol hairspray or rubbing alcohol and blot. Sponge detergent on the stain before washing.

TOMATO SAUCE Scrape off excess, then apply a mixture of cool water and liquid dish soap. Blot stubborn stains with white vinegar.

Help your gear last longer. THREE TIPS FOR GETTING THE LONGEST LIFE OUT OF YOUR CLOTHES. ROTATE YOUR WARDROBE. If you really want your clothes to last, it’s important to rotate them by having enough options in your wardrobe to make different outfits and wear each item less frequently. For ideas on what to buy, see our Essentials collection on page 24.

WEAR THE RIGHT SIZE. It may seem like a no-brainer to order clothes that fit, but wearing the wrong size causes garments to wear out more quickly. Double-check that you’re ordering the right size by using the measuring info on page 32 and the size charts on your order form.

FOLLOW THE LAUNDRY DIRECTIONS. You know the little label inside every garment? It tells you exactly how to clean it for the freshest look and longest life. Take a look and make sure you’re washing wisely.

29


Repair or Recycle? IF YOUR SHIRT HAS SEEN BETTER DAYS, FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN BRING IT BACK TO LIFE OR IF YOU SHOULD SEND IT TO A NEW HOME.

STAINED COLLAR? Repair. Next time you wash it, pretreat the collar with hair shampoo. Keep it from happening again by wearing it only once between washes. FRAYED COLLAR? Recycle. You could have a collar repaired, but it’s not worth the time and money. STAINS UNDER THE ARM? Repair. Try dissolving a few denture-cleansing tablets in a bowl of warm water, or use a bit of OxiClean. FRAYED CUFFS? Recycle. Getting the cuffs replaced is just as expensive as getting a new shirt, and not nearly as rewarding. MISSING BUTTONS? Repair. You probably knew this one, but a needle and thread are the only tools you need. See page 28 for how to sew on a button. FADED COLOR? Recycle. You’ve worn all the Averitt Red out of it. That’s good, but it’s time to move on.

UNIFORM CARE The Steps 1. Remove surface dirt and stains by wiping down the shoes with a damp cloth.

HOW TO POLISH YOUR SHOES The Tools SHOE POLISH Kiwi wax-based polish will work just fine. (Cream polishes may be easier but generally won’t give you the same shine.)

2. Scrub out the entire welt strip with a wetted welt brush. 3. Carefully apply sole-edge dressing if necessary. If any gets on the uppers, they will be permanently stained. Let the dressing dry before continuing on.

WELT BRUSH

4. Apply polish in a circular rubbing motion. No need to be gentle. You don’t need to use a ton, but the more you rub, the better. Let the polish dry, which should take about five minutes.

POLISHING CLOTH

5. Use a polishing brush to buff the shoe. Get extra shine by holding the shoe between your knees and buffing the toe vigorously with a lint-free cloth.

A toothbrush-shaped tool that gets the grit out of the welt, which is the seam that joins the shoe’s upper to the sole. (Actually, you can just use a toothbrush if you want.)

Make sure it’s lint-free cotton or linen. No matter the polish color, use the same one to put on the polish and to buff. And keep it afterward, because the longer you use the same cloth, the more it suffuses with rich oils and dyes.

POLISHING BRUSH Gets the high shine out of the shoe once all the wax is worked into the leather. Horsehair works best.

SOLE DRESSING SOLE DRESSING BL AC K 4 FL OZ

Restores the edge of the sole, which gets scuffed on doorjambs and sidewalks. Apply with a cotton swab or small craft brush.

HOW TO PREVENT SMELLY SHOES For starters, wash your feet and especially your socks more often. Make sure you have two or three pairs of shoes you can interchange so you don’t wear the same pair back to back. If you wear dress shoes, place unvarnished cedar shoe trees into them immediately after removal. Other shoes don’t need trees, but try deodorant spray or even just blocks of cedar. If your shoes already smell, try changing your insoles.

31


MEASURING

Measure twice, order once.

TO GET THE MOST ACCURATE MEASUREMENTS: DO NOT attempt to take your own measurements. Many have tried, many have failed.

WEAR your work shoes when measuring. The style of shoe affects pant length.

How to

MEASURE MEN

ORDER the larger available size if you’re stuck between two.

How to

MEASURE WOMEN

NECK Measure around the base of the neck, where a collared shirt would fit.

BUST Measure under the arms and around the fullest part of the bust.

CHEST Measure across the fullest part of the chest, under the arms and across the back.

WAIST Measure around the narrowest part of the natural waistline (just above the hipbones).

WAIST Measure over the shirt at the waistline, where pants are normally worn. Tighten tape as snug as you prefer pants to fit.

HIPS Measure around the fullest part of the hips (normally seven to eight inches below the natural waistline).

INSEAM After adjusting pants to the position normally worn, measure from the crotch to the top of the shoe (or desired length).

32

DO NOT adjust for shrinkage. The garments have already been sized with shrinkage in mind.

UNIFORM-ITY 2013 CATALOG

SLEEVE LENGTH Measure from the center of the outside collar over the shoulder, around elbow, to the point where the sleeve should end (usually bottom of the wrist bone).


5 WAYS ATTENTION TO DETAIL CAN IMPROVE YOUR WORK & LIFE LEARN HOW TO HAVE BIG SUCCESS BY USING LITTLE THINGS ON THE JOB & AT HOME.

1

Become a list-master.

2

Plan your day.

3

Make big things small.

4

Limit your distractions.

5

Keep yourself fresh.

Write down all the things you need to accomplish today, this week and beyond. Then prioritize them in order of importance. Check them off as you go to build momentum.

Use your Today list to schedule out when you’ll do each task, and stick to it. You’re more likely to stay focused and finish on time.

Break down big tasks into a series of smaller, manageable steps. Make sure each step is small enough to not be intimidating. Then plan when you’ll do each step, and transfer steps to your Today list when they arrive.

Pay attention to when and how you get distracted, and also when you’re most focused and why. Then find practical ways to minimize your distractions and maximize your natural efficiencies.

When you’re at work, plan your breaks and use them well. Walk around. Get some fresh air. When you’re at home, eat healthy. Get some exercise and plenty of sleep.
