“Our strong relationship with Dickies allows us to fulfill a market need for a more breathable and comfortable work shirt,” said Dave Euson, G&K’s Vice President of Marketing and Sales. “We’re excited to be the first uniform rental company to offer this innovative product for our customers.”

“This shirt was developed with superior ventilation technology to help regulate body temperature,” said Brian Sheedy, Dickies Vice President, Merchandising and Design. “Workers demand performance and they need a product that helps them stay cooler, drier, and more comfortable on the job.”

Created using body heat mapping technology, the WorkTech Premium Performance Shirts maximize cooling under the arms and across the back by bringing in air and moving heat away from the body. The flexible, moisture-wicking fabric ensures long-lasting comfort and fit. G&K is now offering these shirts in black, navy and light blue colors in both long sleeve and short sleeve versions. The shirts are available for rent to G&K’s customers across the United States. To learn more, visit
