Customer Stories: Dales Dog Walking

The Story

Paws for thought

Dales Dog Walking is a professional dog walking service, focusing on human and canine interaction, covering the UK areas of Ingleton, Bentham, Burton in Lonsdale, Westhouse & Clapham in the UK. Always working outdoors, Angela Emms (owner of the business) wanted a vibrant and eye-catching uniform that “wouldn’t be able to be missed” when she is walking around the Yorkshire Dales with her dogs.











The Order

Choosing a new uniform

Dales Dog Walking chose our popular Fruit of the Loom Short Fit Ladies Polo Shirts, all featuring an embroidered paw design logo which allows Angela to be easily noticed and recognised whilst dog walking.

The Journey

Standing out from the crowd

Angela told us that she was “very happy with the colour match” to her logo that she provided – furthermore she said that the colour she chose for her polo shirts “went fantastically with the logo colours – so many people have commented on the colours!”

The Experience

Customer Support

Angela highlighted that she found the “process for ordering very easy” and that she was “kept up to date with the progress” of her order every step of the way. Furthermore she said that “it was so great to see a photo of my actual product when it was in production.”










The Outcome

Highly recommended

Angela says of her new uniform: “I’ve had chance to wear my polo shirts & the quality is great – they feel really soft & fit as expected – the size guide on the website was useful for this. I can’t wait for people to see me out & about in them – they will certainly spot me in these colours!”

“Great service & very happy with the product. Will definitely use Clothes2order again & will recommend to others.”

Customer Stories: SPESS Property Group

The Story

Building upon success

SPESS Property Group is a thriving building and refurbishment specialist business working across South London and Surrey. Often working outdoors, SPESS wanted a refreshed & professional looking uniform that would still protect them from the harsh winter weather.


















The Order

Choosing a new uniform

SPESS chose our bestselling Gildan Adult Hoodies, Beechfield Cable Knit Snowstar Beanies and a B&C Explorer Body Warmer all featuring an embroidered logo with their contact details to allow them to be noticed and easily recognised while staying warm on the move.

The Journey

Deciding on colour

“I didn’t really have an idea of what colours I wanted for our uniform at first”, Marc from SPESS said. “The website gave me lots of options to try our logo on, and eventually we settled for the grey tops and cream hats. The possibility of seeing the logo and info on our uniforms before placing an order was a really helpful touch!”

The Experience

Customer Support

Once SPESS had placed their order, they wanted to update a couple of elements of their logo. Our team of artwork and support experts worked closely with the customer to ensure that any adjustments to their design were taken care of immediately until the order was absolutely perfect and to the customer’s requirements.















The Outcome

Professional & Attractive

Marc says of their new uniform: “I couldn’t wait to get the uniforms and when they arrived, the packaging was great – very attractive and the end products were even better!

“We’ve had so many comments on the uniforms and we maintain our high working standards by looking even more professional now.”

FCUK Slogan T-shirts

76FYL_GRY_WMNS-xlarge_trans++1N-0BbrGahnullJmqzE3f2q_JiyI1FNn7h4k342D2pAWe’ve always loved slogan t-shirts here at Clothes2order and it’s great to hear that French Connection is bringing back their FCUK branding which was all the trend in the 90’s.

The CEO of French Connection, Stephen Marks, has said that ‘‘Our Spring Summer advertising campaign pays homage to the 90’s. We feel that this season is the right time to re-introduce FCUK as a celebration of our brand heritage.”

French Connection used the branding “fcuk” in their adverts from around 1991. Apparently the first use of the initials was on faxes which were sent between Hong Kong and London offices, headed “FCHK to FCUK” (they weren’t intended to be rude).

Of course the four letters could be mistaken for another word and French Connection took advantage of the fuss that it caused, producing t-shirts with messages such as “fcuk fashion”, “hot as fcuk”, “too busy to fcuk” etc.
