Employers decide what their workers will wear. This decision process has been at the heart of the corporatewear industry (to give workwear its more business-like name) for nearly 50 years. For 25% of the adult employed population of the developed countries of the world, what we wear to work is what our employers have given us.

Merchandise is typically sold at wholesale prices to companies or rented by them from garment rental companies that launder the garments on a “revolving” basis (one on the wearer, one in the locker, one at the rental laundry).
