Lasting Impressions is happy to announce the partnership of the brand UNTUCKit. For those of you who have not heard of this brand, it has gained momentum in recent years in the retail market. From personal experience, I first came familiar with UNTUCKit while on a trip to Chicago for a branders convention. While killing time in-between seminars, I hit what I consider to be the best shopping around….Magnificent Mile. Right there, in the heart of Chicago was this new store, UNTUCKit. Selling both men’s and ladies apparel, UNTUCKit offers the classic yet modern look.
Walking into the brick and mortar stores you get an automatic feeling for what the brand will have to offer. Clean. Cool. Classic. Casual. With sample sizes to try on, they offer a wide range of fits for all different body types and sizes. While they carry more than the traditional collard shirt, polos, sweaters and other items are available. The stores have just enough edge for someone who is not interested in the classic preppy look. And I’m not sure if that is the whiskey cart they offer to shoppers while selecting their items that makes me say that.
This brand is different from others in the way that the dress shirts are meant to be worn untucked. So when we say from work to play…we truly mean it. While some still like the more tailored look of a tucked in collared shirt, many employees and clients would prefer a more casual look of an untucked shirt – I couldn’t help but think of how an UNTUCKit shirt would look with a brand name embroidered on the chest.
Founders Chris Riccobono and Aaron Sanandres could not find that perfect fit – so they created it. It has just the right length, fits all shapes and sizes and helps you look your best even at your most casual.
One of the biggest trends in most recent years is that of a more casual business attire. Although there is still a place for the shirt and tie, more and more we are seeing jeans in the work place. ¼ zips that can go from work to happy hour and an overall more casual appearance. This is the perfect fit for UNTUCKit for work. This will allow you to offer your staff and clients and option that can be worn both casual and also more dressed up if preferred.
Now that you are familiar with the brand – lets talk styles! Lasting Impressions is now offering 12 styles, available to be customized with your logo. Mainly offering long sleeve dress shirts, the brand offers quality fabric that is all sourced from top-tier manufactures. Strict social and environmental guidelines are also a priority for the UNTUCKit brand. Quality is key and that is why each shirt is inspected five times for approval. We ensure that they retain their shape, color and strength.
One of my favorite parts of the brand in general is their Wrinkle-Free fabric. All styles are wrinkle free so you aren’t stuck behind the old iron or steamer before leaving the house…or jumping on your next Zoom call. Who has time for that?!
So that is my take on the brand. I wanted to see what the reaction was at retail and if my love for the brand really stands up to what people are saying. The average review on various social platforms is 4.5 – 5 stars. Not bad considering that is coming directly from the consumer.
Check out a few of my top picks for UNTUCKit for work. I would suggest using a subtle decoration on each of these so that your employees and staff will sport this shirt after hours! Tone on tone or bicep embroidery and transfers are a perfect fit.
