With only a few more sleeps to go until Christmas day and the arctic weather engulfing much of the UK, there is a definite festive feeling in the air. With sprits usually set to ‘high’ this time of year, its important the freezing temperatures don’t impact mood or productivity. It can be difficult getting out of bed when it’s dark outside and tricky to stay warm through the day, but there are ways to help yourself, says eBrookes.co.uk founder Ian Brookes.
eBrookes.co.uk has been providing quality and affordable work wear for over 10 years, and this time of year Brookes is always giving the same advice; “The cold weather leads everyone to try and stay warm, obviously, but what often happens if you become so warm, you starting sweating. And sweating in the cold is not a nice feeling!”
“Thankfully the technology has been advanced and engineered whereby you can layer up to stay warm without perspiring.”
Brookes is right. Originally developed for professional athletes, advancements such as the ‘Helly Hansen Stay Dry’ fabric enables the wearer to stay dry and comfortable whilst working in demanding environments too.
“It feels comfortable on the skin too and is versatile. I wear mine when hiking and playing my weekly football this time of year,” added Brookes.
“Our main customers though seem to be workers who spend prolonged periods outside this time of year. Without a doubt, a base layer is the perfect first layer for your workwear attire, and which keeps your warm, but not too warm, and thus keeping productivity at a high.”
As well as offering base layers as part of the extensive Brookes workwear catalogue, Brookes also provide an innovative and increasingly popular clothing customisation service, which works to give a workforce bespoke branded workwear.
