"Since it's a uniform, the plus is that your client will buy multiple hats for each user since the staff will need clean head covers for each shift. Even a small food service staff will result in larger orders." Other important factors for distribu- tors and manufacturers to consider are the industry standards for their end us- ers, meant to ensure the safety of the em- ployees and reduce occupational hazards wherever possible. The same applies just as much for nontraditional headwear as it would for any other part of a uniform.

This is not only because the styles stand out, but also due to the many personalities they can have. "Nontraditional headwear expresses itself in various ways, much like other apparel, such as shoes, belts, or shirts," Porter says. "It's an extension of a per- son's personality and image."
