Tee Jays luxury workwear clothing is perfect for your organisation – especially if you are looking for branded workwear to portray a high corporate image for your brand.
Tee Jays is one of our top-selling luxury clothing for embroidered logos. They are based in Denmark and have been in operation since 1976.
We were the first to offer the Tee Jays range of luxury workwear in the UK seven years ago, and it has since become popular up and down the country. Our success with this range has been noted with Tee Jays in Denmark; we were awarded ‘VIP Distributor’ three years ago, meaning we now get priority sampling of all new products, free brochures, samples and merchandising equipment.
Why Choose Tee Jays?
Tee Jays focuses on blends of modern and luxury materials, all very soft and stretchy.
They are extremely high-quality items, meaning they wash and wear fantastically well. As a modern focus shifts onto the corporate image, we’ve noticed that Tee Jay’s clothing has become massively popular with our customers.
Because they use luxury materials, Tee Jay’s clothing is great for embroidery. This is our preferred way of adding your branding to these clothing items. If you’re looking for luxury workwear, then contact our team today.
Tee Jays Luxury Workwear
Some of the items available from Tee Jays are;
- T-shirts – high-quality T-shirts in various colours with separate fits for men and women. The soft corporate colours are perfect for creating that professional image you’re striving towards.
- Polo shirts – Brands often lean towards polo shirts as they are more hard-wearing and look smarter with the collar. These are great items for logo embroidery for your brand.
- Sweatshirts – You can’t go wrong with a sweatshirt to keep your employees warm in winter.
- Hoodies – hoodies are great for keeping your employees warm whilst also keeping them comfortable and casual.
- Joggers – if your employees need a good range of motion in their legs (construction workers or warehouse workers), then joggers can be a great investment. They are more flexible and lower cost than jeans and are easy for us to add your brand.
- Shirts and Blouses – for a smarter look, you may have considered shirts and blouses. Again, we can embroider your logo onto these items so they fit with your brand.
- Fleeces and Jackets – another alternative for the winter months, fleeces are perfect for logo embroidery also.
- Body Warmers – the perfect item for spring or autumn, when it’s too cold to work without a jacket but too warm for a full coat. Bodywarmers also give the wearer a better range of motion than a coat.

Hi-Vis clothing is used in a variety of industries and is of very high importance.
High-visibility (hi-vis) clothing is important in the workplace, particularly in environments where visibility is crucial for safety.
At First Avenue, we can add logos to your hi-vis clothing to make your brand stand out. This not only makes your employees feel part of a team but also acts as a walking advert for your company.
The Importance of Hi-Vis Clothing
Here are several reasons highlighting the importance of hi-vis clothing at work:
Increase Visibility – The primary purpose of hi-vis garments, and its namesake, is to make individuals more visible.
The fluorescent colours and reflective materials used in hi-vis clothing and accessories help workers stand out. This reduces the risk of accidents, especially in low-light or poor visibility conditions, which are common in the industries where hi-vis is generally used.
Increased Safety – In workplaces where heavy machinery, vehicles, or equipment are in use, hi-vis clothing ensures that workers are easily seen by operators and other colleagues. This increases the safety of the working environment as it can help prevent collisions or accidents.
Regulations Compliance – There are precise safety regulations and standards that require the use of hi-vis clothing in specific work environments. It is, therefore, a legal requirement in some areas that hi-vis is provided for all personnel and worn whilst working.
Emergency Situations – In the event of an emergency or evacuation, hi-vis clothing can assist emergency responders in quickly identifying and locating individuals, improving the efficiency of rescue operations.
Increased Protection – Many of our hi-vis clothing items have additional safety features, such as reflective strips or built-in protective elements. This added protection can further reduce the risk of injuries by making workers more conspicuous.
Where is Hi-Vis Clothing used?
Hi-Vis clothing is typically required in various work settings and environments where there is a need to enhance the visibility of individuals for safety purposes. Some of the industries which often approach us for hi-vis clothing are:
- Construction Sites
- Road Construction and Maintenance
- Traffic Control and Law Enforcement
- Airport Ground Operations
- Railway Operations
- Emergency Services
- Warehouse and Logistics
- Mining and Quarrying
- Maritime and Dockyard Operations
- Utilities and Energy Sector
Hi-Vis Clothing and Regulations
It’s important to note there may be specific regulations and requirements for hi-vis clothing depending on your region or industry. It’s the employer’s responsibility to ensure compliance and safety regulations are met.
Types of Hi-Vis Clothing
Because Hi-Vis clothing is used in many different industries, we offer a vast range of garments; some of our most popular types of hi-vis clothing are:
- Hi-Vis Vests: Sleeveless garments designed to be worn over regular clothing purely for visibility. They’re usually yellow or orange in colour and also typically feature reflective strips around the torso and over the shoulders.
- Hi-Vis Jackets: These provide further coverage compared to vests, so, as well as offering visibility, they also protect against cold or adverse weather conditions.
- Hi-Vis T-Shirts and Polo Shirts: Perfect for warmer weather – these are short-sleeved garments made of hi-vis materials, often with reflective stripes.
- Hi-Vis Hoodies: These are commonly used in cooler weather conditions as they provide extra warmth as well as visibility features.
- Hi-Vis Coveralls: Coveralls provide full-body coverage against cold or wet weather and are designed for industries where workers need protection from hazards or contaminants in addition to increased visibility.
- Hi-Vis Trousers: Hi-vis trousers can be paired with hi-vis jackets or shirts for full visibility.
- Hi-Vis Hats and Caps: Hats or caps with hi-vis features can help ensure visibility when helmets are not required.
- Hi-Vis Accessories: In addition to clothing, there are hi-vis accessories like gloves, arm bands, and leg bands that can be added to regular workwear to enhance visibility in specific areas.

Body warmers for work are becoming an increasingly popular choice. They suit a range of different industries and job types. Body warmers, also known as thermal vests or insulated vests, can offer several benefits when incorporated into work uniform.
About Body Warmers
Body warmers are insulated jackets without sleeves. They are a great way to keep workers warm while still giving them full range of motion in their arms.
We have a huge range on our website which are suitable based on the weather conditions you may expect for your workers.
Why Choose Body Warmers for Workwear?
Why are body warmers becoming so popular? Here are our top 5 reasons that we believe more and more companies are choosing to use them as part of their work uniforms:
- Temperature Regulation: Body warmers provide an extra layer of insulation to keep the body warm in colder environments. This is especially useful for individuals working outdoors in cold weather or industries where temperature control is challenging. We even have body warmers which are heated to provide extra warmth. Also, body warmers can be easily layered over other clothing items, providing flexibility in changing weather conditions. Workers can add or remove layers based on their comfort.
- Customisation and Branding – Employers can customise body warmers with company logos, names, or other identifiers. This reinforces a sense of team identity and allows for easy identification of employees. At First Avenue, we can offer printed or embroidery options for branding on all our garments.
- Flexibility and Range of Motion: Body warmers are sleeveless, allowing greater freedom of movement in the arms. This is important in jobs that require a wide range of motion, such as construction or warehouse work.
- Comfort: Body warmers can be lightweight, ensuring workers stay warm without feeling weighed down by heavy clothing. This is especially important for jobs that involve physical activity. There are also harder-wearing options for harsher working environments.
- Durable: Workwear, including body warmers, is often designed to be durable and resistant to wear and tear. This ensures a longer lifespan, even in demanding work environments where body warmers are usually worn.

We also have a blog describing our top body warmers in more detail – this may help you consider what you require.
Winter workwear is one of the product ranges we offer at First Avenue. We have been suppliers of winter workwear for many years to a whole host of clients. We pride ourselves on providing high-quality garments and accessories for all our clients in many industries.
Investing in Winter Workwear
You may choose to invest in winter workwear for many reasons. The most obvious and important is to protect your employees from the harsher weather we come into contact with at this time of year. It may also be a way to give a sense of team morale as everyone is offered/wearing the same clothing or uniform. It could also be for advertising purposes, as your logo is viewable on the clothing.
Some industries and jobs will invest in winter workwear as standard, including areas where employees are outside a lot: builders, construction industry, parking attendants, bricklayers, road construction, agricultural workers and the like. However, other sectors may still want to invest in winter clothing for their employees; this could be offices where employees are required to move from building to building regularly, warehouses and stores, delivery drivers, etc.
In all these industries, different types of winter workwear will be required based on the amount of time spent outside and the elements the workers will be exposed to. If you want to talk through any of the options we have available, please get in touch with us.
Types of Winter Workwear from First Avenue
At First Avenue, we supply a wide range of winter workwear. Each product category has a range of different options depending on what is required.

Body Warmers: These are perfect for keeping your core warm whilst allowing for flexibility and movement of the arms. They are a popular choice amongst many industries. Please take a look at our top Body Warmers in our previous blog post https://firstavenuesupplies.co.uk/best-work-body-warmers/
Gloves: We have a wide range of different work gloves. Some are suitable for harsh working activities, and others for weather protection outdoors. Depending on where your employees are working and what they are doing will determine the best gloves for you to invest in.

At First Avenue Supplies, we specialise in adding customisations, such as logos, to various clothing items. This is perfect for work uniforms in many different sectors.
Our vast product range includes everything from PPE to polo shirts, to Hi-Vis items and everything in between. When it comes to adding the company logos, what is better? Printed vs embroidery?
There are pros and cons to both printed and embroidered logos. It depends on the materials, size and colours required.
Here are some of the pros and cons of printed logos on clothing.
Pros of Printed Logos on Clothing
Cost-Effective: Printing logos is more cost-effective than embroidery, especially for bulk orders. This is because the process of printing is less labour-intensive.
Detail and Colour Reproduction: Printing allows for intricate details and various colours. It’s especially good for designs with gradients or photographs, as this is very difficult to achieve with embroidered logos.
Fast: Printing is quicker than embroidery, which involves stitching each thread individually. This can be crucial for tight deadlines.
Suitable for Lightweight Fabrics: Printing works well on lightweight and delicate fabrics that may not hold up well under the weight of embroidery.
Cons of Printed Logos on Clothing
Not as Durable: Printed logos may not be as durable as embroidered ones, particularly if they undergo frequent washing or abrasion.
More Likely to Crack and Fade: Over time, printed logos can crack or fade, especially if not cared for properly or exposed to harsh conditions.
Not Ideal for Thick Fabrics: Printing may not work well on thick or textured fabrics, as the ink might not adhere properly.
Here are some of the pros and cons of embroidered logos on clothing.
Pros of Embroidered Logos
Durability: Embroidery is highly durable – far more durable than print. It can withstand repeated washings and harsh conditions, making it ideal for workwear and uniforms.
Premium Appearance: Embroidery often gives a premium, high-quality look that can convey a sense of professionalism and attention to detail.
Texture and Dimension: Embroidery adds a raised, textured element to the garment, which can make the logo stand out.
Long-lasting: Unlike prints, embroidered logos are less likely to fade, crack, or peel over time.
Cons of Printed Logos
Cost and Time: Embroidery is generally more expensive due to the intricate process and time it takes. It’s also slower, making it less suitable for rush orders.
Limited Detail: While embroidery can include a fair amount of detail, it may not reproduce very fine details or a wide range of colours as well as printing can.
Not Suitable for Delicate Fabrics: Embroidery may not work well on all fabrics – particularly very delicate fabrics or materials as the stitching process can damage them.
Not Ideal for Large Designs: Very large or complex designs might translate poorly to embroidery.
Printed vs Embroidery
When it comes to printed vs embroidery on your garments, several aspects should be taken into consideration;
- The delicacy of the fabric
- The durability required
- The size of the logo
- The colours required
If you are looking for company workwear with a logo and are unsure whether to choose printed or embroidery for your garments, then contact the team at First Avenue Supplies today – we can advise on the best option for you.
At First Avenue, we specialise in all types of workwear. One of our categories is Outdoor Workwear. Outdoor workwear encompasses a wide range of clothing and gear designed to protect workers who perform tasks in various outdoor environments.
There are various types of outdoor workwear. The requirement for each class depends on factors such as weather conditions and potential hazards.
Types of Outdoor Workwear

Features of protective footwear:

- UV protection.
Respiratory protection is essential for dusty and dirty areas as it filters out harmful particles, gases, or vapours in the air. If you’re working in a hazardous environment, indoors or outside, you should check the requirements for respiratory protection.
Features of our respiratory protection:
- Different types of masks and respirators based on the level of protection needed (e.g., N95 respirators for particulate matter, full-face respirators for chemical protection).

Waterproof outer garments for rainy and wet conditions, insulated clothing and body warmers for the cold months and sunglasses, caps and visors for protection from the sun.
We often find that outdoor labourers require a selection of all types of outdoor clothing to ensure they are correctly protected in each season.
Features of our weatherproof clothing:
- Sealed seams to keep moisture out
- Layered construction for insulation
- Wind resistant fabrics
- UV protection
- Logo options available on request.

Hi-vis long-sleeved polo shirts are a type of clothing designed to enhance the visibility of the wearer in environments where low light conditions or poor visibility could be a safety concern.
This type of garment is commonly worn by workers in industries such as construction, road work, security, and other outdoor occupations where the risk of accidents due to low visibility is high.
Key Features of Hi-Vis Long-Sleeved Polo Shirts
High-Visibility Colours – long sleeved polo shirts typically come in bright fluorescent colours. Our range includes either yellow or orange. Bright colours are easily noticeable even in dim light and adverse weather conditions, making them safer for industrial workers.
Customisation Options – At First Avenue, we can add your logo to your hi-vis items. This promotes brand recognition and helps distinguish employees on job sites. It can also help with team morale and bring the workforce together.

Materials – Our long-sleeved hi-vis polo shorts are made from lightweight and breathable fabrics, allowing for comfort when wearing for long periods of time and in all weather.
Usage – Hi-vis long-sleeved polo shirts are suitable for various outdoor environments where visibility is essential. They are often worn by construction workers, utility workers, road maintenance crews, airport personnel, law enforcement officers, and more.
It’s important to note that while hi-vis clothing significantly enhances visibility, it doesn’t make the wearer entirely immune to accidents. Proper workplace safety protocols, awareness, and precautions are still crucial to ensuring the well-being of workers in hazardous environments.

Why Invest in PPE with Company Logo
There are many reasons businesses choose to add company logos to their PPE. Some of the main reasons we come across are;
Branding and recognition – PPE with a company logo helps promote brand visibility and recognition. When employees wear PPE featuring the company logo, it constantly reminds them of the organisation’s presence and reinforces its brand identity. It can also contribute to the employees’ unity and belonging.
Professional image – Personal protective equipment with a company logo enhances the professional appearance of the organisation. It shows that the company takes safety seriously and is committed to providing a safe working environment for its employees. This can inspire confidence in customers, clients, and stakeholders who visit the workplace.
Employee morale – PPE with a company logo can foster a sense of pride and belonging among employees. By incorporating the logo, the company shows appreciation for its workforce and emphasises their importance in representing the organisation.
Exposure and marketing – Customised PPE sets your company apart from others, especially in industries where safety gear is commonly used. It allows your business to stand out by creating a unique visual identity. This is particularly beneficial when employees work in public or customer-facing roles, as it provides an opportunity for brand exposure and marketing.
Compliance and accountability – Incorporating a company logo on the workwear in industries where PPE is required can assist with compliance and accountability. It helps identify whether employees are using the provided PPE and can aid in monitoring and enforcing safety protocols. It also allows for easier identification of employees during safety inspections or audits.
