Working within the textile industry for more than 30 years, I understand the various aspects that must be taken into consideration when designing a new line. The key is to think like both the laundries/on-premise laundries (OPL) that process the uniforms and the end-users that actually wear the uniforms.

What song should you sing at Karaoke? What Gemstone are you? What celebrity cat are you? The most popular quiz — “Which State Do You Actually Belong In?” — has generated about 41 million page views. We have all seen the Buzzfeed Quizzes and have been intrigued to take them.
