Frankie & Henry | The Modern Uniform | High Tea

Frankie & Henry High Tea Time

Who’s ready for High Tea? Frankie & Henry are prepped for serving delicious afternoon treats in catering uniforms suitable for this twee tradition. Considered a high-brow affair high tea originated in England as a working class meal. This soon evolved into an upper class leisure activity. That long wait between lunch and supper needed to be filled and what better way to fill the time than with food and good conversation! Afternoon tea is a simple at-home meal but nowadays high tea is something to book ahead of time. With any good venue a good uniform is key to curating the perfect experience for patrons. Marie Antoinette would approve of this week’s uniform style with a nod to neutral tones and blushed pink details that achieve a genteel and approachable look. Not to dismiss the divine cake! (A high tea wouldn’t be the same without a well present sponge cake.) Aprons in Mocha and Pebble grey are the colours of choice creating a warm atmosphere. Meanwhile, a white collared shirt is a must for a refined and …

Frankie & Henry Dog Grooming!

This week Frankie & Henry get out the clippers and shampoo and gear up in curated uniforms perfect for dog grooming our furry, four-legged friends! There’s no denying dogs can be unpredictable and washing them can be a monumental feat. Not to mention messy! So a good uniform that includes protective wear like a sturdy apron is ideal if you aim to keep your base layers dry and soapsud free. Or at the very least, lessen the exuberant puppy paw prints on your clothes (not that anyone in the industry minds too much, right?). An apron is a perfect uniform addition for dog groomers providing a key layer of protection. Both our Henry and Otto aprons feature handy pockets to store work essentials. It’s also important your clothes remain comfortable and breathable. Cotton is a classic go-to fabric to turn to for staff uniforms, particularly if your job sees you moving around a lot, i.e. chasing runaway puppy’s! Cargo Crew’s cotton-blend Todd chino’s are crafted with elastic throughout keeping the pants flexible. Meanwhile our range of …

Frankie & Henry Mother’s Day Special

We’re seeing double! Our Frankie’s are paying tribute to all the wonderful mums out there for Australia’s Mother’s Day this Sunday.

A flattering clothing item may be just the trick to surprise her with. If your mum loves spending time in her the kitchen, our range of aprons will delight her! Frankie wears the Henry Bib Apron in the light Pebble grey – an apron that is both fashionable and functional that features a super handy chest pocket. This apron is compatible with our ‘Mix It Up’ Straps so you might be able to add your mums favourite colour to her Henry apron. Alternatively, a feminine top like our Riviera 3/4 Sleeve Striped Tee will be well received, particularly if mum has a penchant for fashionable stripes. Our 3/4 sleeve Riviera is now available in reverse Vanilla & Black stripes. But most importantly, give your mum a big HUG and tell …

Frankie & Henry Bakers Uniforms

This week Frankie & Henry’s staff uniforms are fashioned to keep the hard-working bakers of the world looking and feeling great. Whether you’re a butcher, a baker or a candlestick maker a fashionable and functional uniform will make your job that much easier. But this week we’ve focussed our attention solely on our crew the bakers!

Cargo Crew Blog | Frankie & Henry | Chocolatier Uniforms

Frankie & Henry Easter Chocolatier

Frankie and Henry are rounding up the baby chicks and chocolate eggs in this week’s chocolatier uniforms inspired for Easter! Chocolate evokes cheerful thoughts of comfort food, mugs of hot chocolate and perhaps Johnny Depp in the movie Chocolat… A chocolatiers uniform should evoke similar feelings of warmth and comfort (minus Johnny Depp?) as a visual representation of a business and its story. Mocha and chocolate brown are the hues of choice for a chocolate maker’s uniform expressing the colours of the delicious craft. Meanwhile, adding a pop of colour is the ideal way to tie in any branding colour theme. Red is a compelling colour for chocolatiers, invoking cinnamon and chilli undertones – popular spices used for artisan chocolate flavours. Our red apron straps are great additions to add to the Mocha coloured Henry aprons for that personalised touch. For the most effective look, a top should be either a subtle monochrome or in line with the business colour scheme. The caramel hues of our Todd chino pants in Camel complete the colour theme for …

Cargo Crew Blog | Frankie & Henry | Florists Uniform

Frankie & Henry Florist Uniforms

This week Frankie and Henry channel their inner flower child to present staff uniforms perfect for florists. Flowers are the stars of a florist’s showroom and shouldn’t be outshone by bright clothing. With this in mind, paired back uniforms are ideal for ensuring your blooms remain the stars of the show, and our curated selection of tops, chinos and work aprons offer the ideal clothing options for florist uniforms. Aprons are an essential item for florist uniforms, providing protection to daywear when the job gets messy. Cargo Crew aprons also offer additional over-sized pockets to store your workday essentials. The vibrant blooms contrast against our hardwearing Workers Bib Apron, whilst the dark Indigo Denim fabric brings out the flowers naturally bright colours. If a full bib apron isn’t required our Henry Waist Apron in Bondi Blue is a handy uniform addition that still provides protection and easy to reach pockets. A monochrome pinstripe shirt works well in this setting. Our striped Dixon shirt doesn’t draw attention but still provides a point of difference to plain items. …
