CINTAS’ FASHION-INSPIRED CAREER CLOTHING
ADOPTS EASY-CARE BENEFITS
WITH BAGIR INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY
Complementing each others’ apparel design expertise, Cintas and Bagir Ltd. have partnered in creating a collection of elegant, easy-care career apparel that will be available to Cintas’ customers in the hospitality industry. Wearers include hotel management, front desk staff, doormen, bellmen and housekeeping supervisors for reputable hotels such as Marriott Fairfield Inn and Suites and Holiday Inn.
"Cintas’ customers have been requesting fashionable corporate uniforms that have styling found at retail and provide easy care," says Steven Kimmel, President of Bagir Ltd. Bagir Ltd., an international manufacturer of men’s and women’s tailored fashion apparel, has built its reputation as a provider of innovative textile technology that meets today’s environmental needs. Recognized for its machine wash and tumble dry collection that eliminates the expense of dry cleaning, all while providing retail inspired silhouettes, Bagir formed the perfect partnership with Cintas.
On par with the designs offered in men’s and women’s fashion magazines, the stylish wool blend suits, jackets, pants and skirts will now also have the benefit and ability to be machine washed and tumble dried. This not only results in fashionable looks, it also provides an impressive cost savings to each hospitality customer. Presuming a suit is refreshed once a week and dry cleaning costs an average of $10 per suit, by machine washing it once a week customers can save an average of $520 per year per suit. Most customers purchase at least 3 sets of garments — at the end of the year it would cost over $1,500 if they were to have the clothing professionally dry cleaned.
In the past, commercial career apparel has been associated with mundane styles, scratchy fabrics and expensive upkeep. That stigma has been altered through the Cintas and Bagir partnership. Elegant fabric, sophisticated styling and easy-care properties steamroll this apparel classification into the 21st century.
