Cargo Crew Blog | Frankie & Henry Aussie Christmas

Frankie & Henry Aussie Christmas

Ho ho ho!🎅🏻🎄 Frankie & Henry are getting into the festive spirit with this week’s uniform looks! Read on to find out how to coordinate your staff apparel for a little Christmas holiday fun. We love our hot Aussie Christmases but that doesn’t mean we can’t participate in some traditionally festive outfitting, like sporting ugly Christmas sweaters!😂 But on a more serious note (not that “ugly Christmas sweaters” aren’t a serious business), staff uniforms can be styled to suit the spirit of the season by pairing your existing uniforms with touches of red – shirts in this colour are an easy and effective way to achieve this. And it wouldn’t be a festive uniform without the addition of Santa hats. Frankie wears the Max Check Short Sleeve Shirt in Red with the “Peace on Earth” Barkly Apron, whilst Henry wears the Max Check Long Sleeve Shirt in Red, the Workers Denim Vest and Todd Chino Shorts in Camel. Shop the look below.

Cargo Crew Blog | Frankie & Henry | White on White

Frankie & Henry Winter Wonderland

We don’t get white Christmases in Australia, but that doesn’t mean we can’t add a little white on white winter wonderland to our uniforms, right?❄️ This week Frankie & Henry dream of a white Christmas and show how this shade can be incorporated into your staff style. White is a classic shade that works with any colour combination, but can just as easily be the dominant colour in your staff outfit. It works particularly well in the hospitality industry for a polished uniform. White is an ideal base to add accentuated touches of colour to suit your theme and brand’s colour palette. Additional coloured or patterned accessories pop, drawing the eye. However, white accessories work just as effectively for a clean and crisp uniform style. You can’t look past the collared white shirt for work wear that is both versatile and sophisticated no matter what industry you hail from. The addition of a white apron is the perfect uniform accompaniment for hospitality and retail. Frankie & Henry Wear Frankie wears the Women’s Campbell 3/4 Sleeve Shirt and Sidney …

Frankie & Henry New Nautical

Ahoy there!🖐⚓️ This week Frankie & Henry demonstrate how nautical style doesn’t need to be cookie cutter; these uniforms can be as individual as you are.

The Modern Uniform | Double Denim Uniforms

Double, Triple, (Quadruple!) Denim

Frankie and Henry invoke Justin Trudeau’s Canadian Tuxedo in this week’s double, triple, (quadruple!) denim uniform style. When a uniform looks this good, why not. In today’s “anything goes” fashion landscape denim is the go-to choice for anyone having a wardrobe crisis. It’s rare to get this iconic style wrong, even when top & tailing and layering your denim pieces! Denim is the ideal fabric for a number of industry uniforms due to its durable resistance to wear and tear, and the fabric’s penchant to look better with age. Think trade aprons from butchers to bespoke craft makers and stand-out café and retail uniforms. Denim is as versatile as it is fashionable, just ask the Canadian PM.😉🇨🇦 Frankie wears a Bailey Short Sleeve Denim Shirt with the Workers Bib Apron in Indigo Denim and accessorised with the Harvest Tote Bag. Henry wears a Smith Oxford Shirt in Navy with the Workers Vest in Indigo Denim, Scout Waist Apron and accessorised with the Bailey Denim Bow Tie.

Cargo Crew Blog | The Modern Uniform | Preppy Style

Frankie & Henry Preppy Style

This week Frankie and Henry sport the enduring preppy look, because you don’t have to be enrolled in an American Ivy League School to adorn this universal style. Corporate uniforms are often inspired by prep clothing as these pieces (think collared shirts, detailed accessories and premium knits) can be fashioned as modern corporate wear, or just as easily be the uniform style of choice for retail and front of house staff. Frankie wears our Dixon Stripe Shirt in Blue & White accessorised with the Lavalliere Silk Bow Tie and black Todd Chino Skirt. Whilst Henry wears the Smith Oxford Shirt in Sky Blue with our dapper Pin Spot Bow Tie and paired with the Todd Chino Shorts in Camel. Both outfits are styled with our Crew Knit in Navy over the shoulders for that final collegiate touch. Remember, preppy style isn’t just for the Upper East Siders. XOXO Cargo Crew
