A bespoke uniform manufacturer has kitted out the cast of one of Britain’s most loved television sitcoms.

Open All Hours made a return this winter to the BBC with a brand new series – almost four decades since the show first hit the screens in 1976.

Workwear Express produced a range of commemorative aprons worn by characters such as Granville, who inherited his great uncle Arkwright’s grocery store.

The 100 aprons contained the Arkwright logo along with the name of the show and the filming locations embroidered across the chest. The logo consisted of more than 20,000 individual stitches and was manufactured by Workwear’s state-of-the-art equipment, which produces around 60,000 individually embroidered logos each week.

Andrew Ward, managing director and founder of Workwear, said: “We are thrilled to have been given the opportunity to provide customised aprons for such a prestigious television show. Still Open All Hours has a star-studded cast and it makes me very proud to watch the show and see the fruits of our labours.

“We won the work on the back of our growing reputation for delivering quality bespoke garments on time and on budget. We’ve invested in some of the best embroidery and screen printing facilities in the UK, which means we can customise workwear and uniforms with any logo. This flexibility has allowed us to strengthen our position in the corporate clothing sector and diversify into new markets such as the events, promotions and leisure sectors.”
