Uniforms, more than just looking good Posted on Dec 1, 2014 by Alene Keenan Stew Cues
Crew uniforms are an important part of the distinctive image of every yacht. I think most stews would agree that purchasing, allocating and finding space onboard for crew attire can be one of the most under-appreciated projects that a stew will carry out. In fact, sometimes it is a colossal pain in the rear. Being in charge of ordering and inventorying uniforms is frustrating, not to mention expensive and time-consuming.
Crew often grumble because they don’t like the uniform of the boat. Despite the fact that the boat almost always provides clothing free of charge, crew are generally not very appreciative. Uniforms often do not meet their fashion style and fit expectations. To the uninitiated it might seem like a good idea to run out to the mall and pick up the latest fashion trend that everyone will like.
However, as Kristen Stepp of Big Blue Yachtwear points out, this might not be the best option. Going this route often means spending more money on changing stock frequently, since you may not be able to get identical items from one season to the next.
One of the most common issues that the chief stew and the captain have to deal with is finding a style that flatters different body types, that the owner approves of, and that everyone agrees on. READ MORE> http://www.the-triton.com/2014/12/uniforms-more-than-just-looking-good/
