What do you think of when you think of ‘smocks’? Comfort? Practicality? Style and fashion?
As everyone knows, a smock-frock is a coat-like outer garment often worn to protect clothes in specific lines of work. If you’re huddling in a field somewhere or working the mean streets, you definitely need a smock. I personally have no need for a smock as a data monkey however if I could get away with wearing one I would. There has to be some kind of middle ground whereby I can still look presentable for work and also protect my frail body from the wrath of winter. What I need is a business smock.
Businesses are varied in what they need so we would have to ensure the business smock was varied or adaptable to almost everyone. For those working in the service industry, it would have to give the appearance of a fashionable suit or tuxedo. For those rocking the office look, there would have to be various pockets for pens, notebooks, coffee cups, maybe even one big one on the front (or inside) to put a laptop in. A CEO of a Fortune 500 company would need secret compartments to hide, I don’t know, fat wads of money and secrets? Yeah, we’ll go with that.
Our designers have thrown together this mock smock. Please don’t knock the smock as it’s still a rough sketch and is not in stock.
Given the ludicrous nature of the fashion industry in this decade (for an example of this, please look up anything involving an ‘oodie’, a ‘shacket’ or, my personal favourite, the ‘coatigan’), I believe that the business smock would not be out of place. There’s even currently a website called Smock London – ROCKING SMOCKING FOR THE 21ST CENTURY. They’d be the perfect fit for the model. They’re all about the smocking.
You may not work in business but you may mean business meaning the business smock could still be for you. A range of colours and designs to suit your desires.
The business smock; ready to smock you right in the kisser.

Nobody’s smocking me in the kisser. However, putting that threat of violence to one side, I can imagine myself wowing the rest of my department by turning up in a dashing business smock. Please sign me up for your catalogue, and let me know which tweeds you offer this garment in.
We’ve. Got. All. The. Tweeds.
Silk tweed, red tweed, lobster tweed, jubilant tweed. Whatever your poison.
I want it in Dunbartonshire Regimental Pink tweed, please. With tassles.
That sounds saucy. Are you sure you can afford it? The tassles along will cost three figures. We use nothing.
No wait, I read that wrong. We use nothing but the best materials.
I’m willing to pay four figures for the tassles if you can find enough of them. I want tassles dripping from every surface.
Every surface? Including the eyes?
Does your business smock cover the eyes? That’s not in the professional marketing picture.
You’re the client. You tell me.
OK. Ian, the business smock doesn’t cover the eyes. Don’t make it cover the eyes. If it covers the eyes I’m taking my business elsewhere and getting myself some business dungarees.
Got it… I’m writing this down… steady now… EYES… I’ll get right on it.
