This clothing company has a long and rich history that dates back to 1980. Corporate Casuals is a spin-off of the Callenstitch company, and they have grown from being a traditional monogramming business to an online empire. Their company manages and operates their embroidery equipment and facility in Concord, MA. Initially instituted by Dicksie Callen, the company has now been turned over to Andrew Callen, turning it into a family run business.
Despite the somewhat off-putting name, they do not just cater to corporate and casual wear. There are, in fact, numerous apparel options available for customizing in their website. You can choose from simple shirts to work gears and even accessories like hats and bags. They also have a ‘Big and Tall’ section for the larger customers and even a ‘Go Green’ section where the products are made of organic materials. But they do specialize in work wear so expect to see a nice variety of that in their selections.
The prices displayed on their website are pretty reasonable. You can find nice work shirts for as low as $10 – $20 and simple tees start at only $5 – $10. They charge a little higher for branded products, naturally. For example, Nike jackets can range $50 – $80. In terms of customization options, the website does lay out various design and style options. Customized designs can be either embroidered or printed on the garment you ordered. You can also choose to upload your own artwork but with a setup fee of $35.
The site’s Design Center, although equipped with the proper tools and information, is a little dull. It lacks visual dynamics that would make a user become engaged in the design activity. However, we must say that they do have countless of style options to choose from. Their stock cliparts vary of different categories and colors, so you will definitely not run out of options. If your creative juices are running out, visit their ‘Design Spy’ section to see other customers’ creations and get inspired.
Orders are processed within 3-4 business days and shipping is around 4-5 days. You can request for expedited shipping for a fee. The company can accept design changes and returns if the order you receive is flawed. It is advised to notify them first before returning an order.
Corporate Casuals has competitive prices, a wide array of style options and also a great variety of apparel. We only wish their website was a little easier to navigate and it can also use a little bit of virtual makeover. Other than that, this company is a reliable place to go to especially when you are looking for customizable work wear.
