    Can you buy shirts from any retailer (as long as they meet uniform requirements) and have Ed Outfitters put logo on?

    1. Mrs. Kristovic

      Hi Patty!

      All uniform items must be purchased from Educational Outfitters. Educational Outfitters will not embroider the logo on other items of clothing. This ensures a consistent product and fit to meet our goal of having a professional, consistent uniform supporting focused, academic classes. When students come in to school, they will be required to have the full uniform, not just the logo. Please feel free to reach out to Educational Outfitters or the school if you have any questions about fit or purchasing.

      Best,
      Mrs. Kristovic
