Some businesses require that employees wear specific attire such as uniforms. It’s important for workers in the hospitality industry to wear the appropriate apparel and clothing when serving customers. For example, upscale restaurants usually have wait staff that is dressed in a particular uniforms that may include aprons, tuxedos and vests. Traditionally, black pants and white shirts are worn by restaurant waiters and waitresses. However the color scheme of such uniforms can be customized according to a restaurant’s brand and image. For example, all black attires could be combined with ties of specific colors. Such a contrast can create the perfect combination that reflects a company’s logo and overall theme.
Female workers in the hospitality industry may wear uniforms that are made of silk and other lavish materials. For example, silk blouses and shirts are available in bright colors such as purple, pink and red. Young ladies may be encouraged to wear uniforms that include short sleeve shirts and skirts that reach below the knees. Striped shirts are more appropriate for upscale venues rather than restaurants. Averill’s Sharper Uniforms are examples of custom apparel that is available for workers in various hospitality industries.
Some uniforms may be embroidered with custom names of workers or companies. For example, the front of a shirt could clearly display the brand name of a restaurant or hotel. A name tag may be attached to the shirt in order to officially identify a worker. Metal style ID tags can be pinned to a uniform shirt.
