Valeo Glove BWDon't be terrified by that photo on the left. It's not one of the dismembered hands that crawls the Earth in search of human necks to strangle. Those are only found in Illinois.

It's a photo of a Valeo Mechanics Pro Glove (V140). And it's the kind of glove you might wear if you're a proud American oil or shale gas worker.

DickiesOverallsCome to think of it, we have many types of flame-resistant apparel for fellas in your line of work, from shirts and caps, to sweatshirts and jackets, and more.

Take a look at this fine set of Dickies duck bib overalls (DB100) that's available in the Spirit Services Online Store. The clever folks at Dickies revolutionized the world of overalls a generation ago when they removed the third shoulder strap. Sure, they caught flack for it at the time, but most modern consumers have come to accept that humans no longer have three shoulders.

Vest Fun"Why, hello there, handsome."

You'll have to get used to hearing that line once you start wearing the ML Kishigo FR breathable mesh vest (FM389) shown on the left. It's nearly guaranteed to make you at least moderately more attractive. And the vibrant yellow color will boldly declare, "I'm here world, and I refuse to be accidentally hit by a truck!"

That's just a sample of the garb from our swell oil and shale gas collection. For comfortable work gear with reliable flame-resistant properties - and a dash of big-city style - you can't go wrong with Spirit Services.

Oh, and heed this handy reminder, gents: Most formalwear is not flame-resistant. That means your ascot may burst into flames if it gets too close to your pipe or Baked Alaska. 

(It's time for a Spirited quiz: Other than oil and shale gas, what are the four most worthwhile things to come out of the ground? Place your bets, and then find the answers here.)


Doctor DudsA recent survey has revealed what hospital patients find most comforting about their doctors.

It’s not their kind bedside manner.

It’s not their years of training, skill and experience.

Turns out, it’s their healthcare uniforms.

That’s right: lab coats, tunics and reversible V-neck scrubs put patients at ease better than a bellyful of diazepam.


“We’re not really sure,” said Roger Farce of the R. Farce Survey Company. “We didn’t ask any follow-up questions. Honestly, this survey wasn’t one of our better efforts.”

But here at Spirit Services, we’ve always known that a handsome healthcare uniform speaks volumes about you as a physician. It communicates authority and confidence. And it lets patients know that you’re not willing to expose your personal wardrobe to foul-smelling bodily juices.

Spirit Services' healthcare uniforms also come complete with a handy bonus feature: tremendous healing powers. That means that you’ll be an even better doctor when you wear them. And the healing powers won’t fade, not even in today’s modern washing machines. That’s good to know.

Would you care for a look at our fine selection of healthcare uniforms? Then why not visit our online store right now?


A Universe of UniformsAuld Lang Syne! That's a Scottish phrase that means "Buy a uniform, old friend."

New years come and go, but new uniforms from Spirit Services will last a good long time, and provide a great deal more pleasure.

Think about it: when was the last time a year - or any measure of time, for that matter - kept your crew looking as sharp as a tack while on the job?

Has the new year ever protected you from the spatter of hot grease like a culinary uniform can? Or staved off the unfortunate effects of projectile mucus better than a healthcare uniform? Not a chance, buster!

And let's not forget the glories of manufacturing uniforms - the unsung heroes of the uniform universe. They stand in for your lazy street clothes while you're on the line and do an honest day's work right along with you.

Here at Spirit Services, we're as pleased as Punch to sell all sorts of fine uniforms. We also offer uniform rental services that include cleaning and convenient pick-up and delivery.

Yes sir, you're sure to have a swell new year when you "buy a uniform, old friend." 

Happy ShirtsIt's time again to ask yourself that annual question: "What the deuce am I going to give my employees for Christmas?"

Will it be a modern new stapler? A coupon for a free after-hours hug? Or maybe a jar of your famous homemade sausage?

As appealing as those options may seem, we have a hunch your staff members may be pining for a gift that they actually won't despise.

So this year, give them their choice of customized corporate apparel. They're sure to appreciate a handsome sweater or a smart jacket with the company's logo tastefully embroidered on it.

Not that your employees wouldn't enjoy another holiday gift box of charcoal briquettes, but may we suggest treating them to a few of our comfortable woven shirts or Polo shirts this year?

And nothing says "I trust you not to steal the company's office supplies" quite like a handy new duffel bag, a travel bag or a computer bag. All our bags and team apparel can be customized with your company name, your logo, the recipient's name or a meaningful catchphrase, such as "My boss is aces with me!"

Yes, corporate apparel is a welcome gift. And the surprisingly tall elves in the Spirit Services Christmas Workshop can set up an online corporate account from which your employees can select their favorite shirts, pants, outerwear and other company-approved gifts. Just call (877)407-7474 to get started.

Happy holidays, chum.


On this date in 1942, we stopped selling nitroglycerin and other liquid explosives door to door. We found we were spending too much money on high-end shock absorbers to keep our delivery trucks from blowing up.

No More Nitro

Chicken manWorried you won't find the perfect costume for this year's neighborhood Halloween party?

You're right to be concerned, friend. After all, making a strong impression at the annual All Hallows' Eve shindig is just as important to your social status as driving the right sports car.

Besides, wouldn't it be nice just once to out-maneuver that annoying Roger from down the block? Every year he wins the Best Costume trophy just by putting on a suit. And all because he happens to look like President Eisenhower.

Well, this is the year that changes, thanks to Spirit Services!

Just take a quick stroll through our online store and you'll find all sorts of swell costume ideas.

Watch the ladies swoon when you enter the party as a doctor or professional golfer. They'll be eating out of your hand when you show up as an executive chef. Or show them you're committed to America's energy future for the evening by choosing an outfit from our Oil and Shaling Industry collection.

Yes sir, that Best Costume trophy is as good as yours when you shop at the Spirit Services online store. So why not visit now?

Have a happy Halloween, you winner, you.
