Bates is a brand grounded in the history of serving the people who keep us safe and the tradition of quality and value. But as trends and culture change, so does the style of both clothing and communication.

At Bates, we’re committed to service, and part of that service is keeping up with evolving trends. Our brand refresh is an evolution, not a revolution - grounded in our tradition with a fresh, new face.

The streamlined design and updated product line still reflect the commitment to quality and value we’re known for while reflecting the modern times in which our customers live
