Is it true that clothes make the man or woman? What is certainly true is that, in today’s competitive business environment, having the upper edge by projecting the complete package is becoming increasingly important. For whether we like it or not, people do form an opinion based on the way we dress, and there is no doubt that dressing smartly can do wonders to the way we are perceived at work.

One company that knows more about this than most is Alexandra, a leading international provider of corporate clothing that has 150 years of experience and a track record of excellence.

Offering excellence and affordability, Alexandra employs sophisticated technology to convert company logos into high quality embroidery or screenprint. Nothing boosts a company’s image more. With Alexandra’s experience, expertise and service combining for incomparable results.
