Averill's Top Picks
Hi, I'm Averill Bromfield, I'm the one pictured on the left, with a customer at the New York Restaurant Show.

How I Choose Our Top Picks:

We are not just a warehouse company that supplies and ships hospitality uniforms. My staff and I have worn, touched and felt every uniform we sell, we even put the uniforms through the washing machine to test durability. I receive daily feed back from our customers on sizing, color, comfort, fit, and durability. I hear back from our customers through the phone, e-mails, product reviews, and trade shows.

It is my goal to ensure that you are 110% satisfied with our products and service.

Thank you for your business! Averill

Care & Washing:

Always follow the washing instructions on the label in the garment (it is required by federal law that this label be included). Always dry on a low heat - It's the dryer's heat that breaks down a garments fabric and shortens its life span. All white garments can be bleached and we recommend using Oxy Clean on colored garments to remove organic stains.


Turn garments inside out and machine wash in cold wateronly with like colors. Do not use bleach. Gently pre-treatstains before washing.


It’s best to tumble dry garments on low heat. For bestresults, immediately hang garments on a clothes hangerto avoid wrinkling.


With our easy care fabrics, ironing may not be required.However, if it is necessary, use low heat and iron theinside of the garment to avoid “shine” marks on the fabric.

Recommended Men's Sleeve Lengths:

Small 30/31, Medium 32/33, Large XL, 2XL 34/35 or 36/37, Tall Shirt sizes are sleeve length 36/37

Economy Server Shirts:

Our best selling economy shirts are the broadcloth mens button down shirt and broadcloth ladies button down shirt. This shirt is available in either long or short sleeved and comes in six colors. It is made of a nice light fabric that restaurant servers prefer, and is very durable. These are NOT a fitted blouse for women, they are more of a box cut. The next step up in price is the ladies cafe shirt and banded collar shirts. The body fit for the café and banded collar shirts offer the same fit. The only exception is that the collar of the shirts offer two different styles. These server shirts are among the best selling shirts due to their lightweight feel and the fact that they are available in eleven colors.

Ladies Fitted Blouses:

What I am hearing is women no longer want to wear so-called unisex blouses. They want good looking fitted blouses, like the ones they where in there daily lives. Previous to US manufacturers providing these blouses over the past few years, we had these custom blouses made in Mexico. We have a vey nice economy line: Three quarter sleeve button up shirts, Three quarter sleeve v-neck shirts, and a long sleeve v-neck shirts. All these styles are a stretch fabric with front and back darts for a fitted look, all available in eight great colors! We also have a full line of higher end coctail and night club blouses.

Economy Vests:

We offer eight colors in the economy vest line, these waiter and waitress vests come in Men's and Ladies sizes. The most popular color, of course, is black. Due to untucked shirt tails and ladies low rise pants, only the black vests are offered, as an option, in two inch longer sizes. The vests are made of 65% polyester and 35% cotton, they are machine washable, easy care. They make for a great durable waitstaff vest!

Waitstaff & Chef Aprons:

Sharper Uniforms offers over 70 styles of Waitstaff Aprons, available in 20 colors. It's tough to recommend a particular apron because of all the styles. What makes these Restaurant Aprons special is they are made in the USA out of 7.5 Ounce 65% Polyester/ 35% Cotton fabric. The fabric is wrinkle and stain resistant. These aprons should last twice as long as the foreign made aprons. Apron styles include, waist, bistro, bib with pocket, bib no pocket and cobbler. If you require custom styles and sizes, no problem, minimum of 36 aprons for custom orders, lead time is typically two to four weeks depending on quantities. We also offer embroidery and screen printing services.

Polo Shirts:

Polo Shirts are available in Men's and Ladies styles, in a wide variety of colors. Today's fabrics include Moisture Mangement e-dry (100% Polyester), Poly/Cotton and 100% Cotton. Here is a bit of trivia, on short sleeve polos, men's sleeves lengths are to the elbow, and ladies are halfway between the shoulder and elbow.

Moisture Management shirts have become a favorite due to their perspiration wicking characteristics and their microbial properties. The fabric is very light, yet very durable, can take many, many washings, and they refuse to shrink. Because of this durability factor, the moisture management polos are great for Wait Staff applications both indoors and out.

We offer both Embroidery and Heat Seal Services.


Neckwear is available in many styles and fabrics. For the ladies we have Loop Ascots, Scarves, Bow ties, Rosettes, Tulips, Cross-Over ties and Floppy Bows. The men's lineup includes your standard Tie, Bow ties, and the revolutionary Zipper Tie. Fabrics are available in durable polyester and silk ties with a teflon finish to resist liquids and food solids.

The Zipper tie is a pre-tied tie, that comes with a zipper adjustment that makes it easy to put on, and take off. The zipper tie is great for younger waitstaff and ladies who may not know how to tie a regular tie. What's great about the Zipper tie is that each staff member has a beutifully tied knot every time, every tie worn is perfectly uniform.

We get asked this question all the time, can ties be washed in the home laundry? The answer is NO, they are held together with an adhesive that will fall apart if put in the wash. It is best to dry clean the ties and scarves.

Banquet Shirts:

Simplicity is beauty. A Banded Collar shirt requires no neckwear, one less item for the staff to wear or leave at home. Our Classic Banded Collar shirt comes in 11 distinct colors. Ths shirt can be worn with or without a Button Cover. The Trimmed Banded collar shirt comes with a sewn-in black and gold decorative top button. Both shirts work well with a classic economy vest.

Lastly, a very traditional banquet look for the waitstaff is the wing collar tuxedo shirt with a bow tie. The shirt bib is offered in an optional 1/8 or 1/4 inch pleat, and can be worn with black stud buttons.

I decided to buy through your company because you, and your staff were prompt and pleasant to deal with, and I felt more confident that the order would be processed correctly based on the positive nature of that interaction.

Rebecca, Reston

I wanted to let you know how grateful I was for your superb customer service. I found a lot of unanswered calls and unreturned emails diving into the uniform provider industry. You were the shining exception. Delivering what I asked for quickly and professionally. As I said on the phone, your blazer was my first choice.

Daniel, Austin

Thank you so much! The sizes that you sent in the sweater vests worked out perfectly, and the color ended up being awesome!

Alec, Boston

I like the fact the Sharper Uniforms recommended we try samples before we put in a large order for country club shirts. This way we were able to determine, size, fit, and color, and make sure management approved of the selection. It definitely was the way to go!
