After you unwrap your holiday gifts and toast 2017, chances are you or someone you know is headed to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
Don’t worry, we made a list for you at this busy time of year. From fleece vests that Business Insider calls the “most quintessentially-VC item in an investors wardrobe” to two-in-one pen stylus for your tablet, as well as old school Moleskine journals.
Here’s your Merchology CES Shopper’s Guide:
The sweater vest has rocketed to fame as the uniform of the tech industry. No matter what you're wearing, you can always add a good sweater vest and still look good. That's certainly true in the case of the Patagonia Classic Better Sweater Vest. Featuring zippered pockets to hold your phone and other small tech items, stand-up collars, and insulating fabric, this vest will add to the warmth and fashion of any outfit you're wearing. Be sure your employees are ready to show-off your company brand at CES this year with your embroidered logo front and center on the right chest.
The Cutter & Buck Easy Care Twill Dress Shirt is a quick shot in the arm-metaphorically, of course-of fashionable casual wear. This shirt combines comfort with fashion and helps you look the part in front of any audience. The button-down collar allows you to dress it up for formal occasions, but you can have your employees roll up their sleeves and wear it as a uniform with your own logo embroidered onto the chest. Pair it with the Patagonia Better Sweater Fleece Vest above for an added level of warmth when you're at CES in January.
There are so many fleece options out there, but it's rare to find one that delivers the level of comfort, warmth, and style with as much panache as this Marmot . It's all in the details when it comes to Marmot. Everything is designed for maximum comfort and enjoyment, which means you can add your own corporate logo or custom embroidery onto this fleece and enjoy it in just about any cool weather situation imaginable.
Ever wonder why coaches, trainers, and athletes look so sharp wearing polos? It helps to work out a lot, but perhaps even more important is the right polo selection. Make the right choice with the Under Armour Corporate Rival Polo, a 100% polyester, lightweight piece that will feel as comfortable to wear to the office as it does at trade show events. Showcase your brand in style with your corporate logo embroidered on the left chest.
Tradeshows mean meeting many people and working in tech means you are always thinking up new ideas. Not having a place to write down new contact information or great ideas means you might forget that information later. Carry the Moleskine Kraft Cahier Ruled Pocket Journal with you and you'll see what writing on the go can feel like when you work with a superior product. With a large logo imprint area, you can use a top-quality brand like Moleskine while adding your own custom twist to it, bearing your own professional standard any time you have an idea, a note, or simply a great quote that you need to write down on the go.
You're on the go trying to listen to the latest tech news and take calls, the last thing you want to do is fuss with the audio on your devices. This is where you can find the solution in the Gemline Flash Ear Buds with Mic. Not only do the headphones provide clear sound, but they also come with a plastic storage case to ensure you never have to struggle through untangling your headphones again. The storage case is the perfect place for you to attach your company logo to keep your brand front and center for all employees and customers.
The BIC 2-in-1 Stylus Pen gives you the best of both writing worlds. Write with the precise stylus on your tablet or smartphone, and then sit down at a desk to take notes in your Moleskine Kraft Cahier Pocket Journal (shown above) during a conference call. Your company logo can be printed along the barrel to provide recognition.
