Frequently Asked Questions
The Iowa State University Employee Workwear Program, piloted by the Iowa State University Book Store, is aimed at making University Employee Workwear available to colleges, departments and individuals alike while focusing on simplicity, encouraging inclusivity and prioritizing affordability.
The ISU Book Store has worked with the Iowa State University Trademark Licensing Office to finalize a catalog of pre-approved licensed apparel that be can be ordered online through the Employee Workwear Program. The program, at present, offers both the athletic I-State and the University mark for use in workwear.
Employees can discuss their workwear requirements with their college/department's workwear coordinators/representaives and use this process to place an order. The department then consolidates orders through the month, and submits the final order on the last working day of every month. This enables departments to enjoy bulk pricing benefits compared to single order pricing.
At present, the Workwear program is pre-approved for all the University Colleges. Department workwear coordinators/representatives can request approval for their departments here.
Yes, the Workwear Program catalog is available online here or can be accessed directly on www.isubookstore.com/workwear. The catalog is available as a .pdf document that can be easily viewed online, shared via a link, downloaded for offline use, or printed using a printer.
Note: We highly recommend referencing the online version of the Workwear catalog versus using a downloaded version, as the online Catalog will receive important updates with time, including additional product information, updated product images, revised pricing, sizing information, etc. Any major changes to the program, including pricing, sizing, addition/removal of styles, etc. will be communicated to the deaprtment workwear coordinators via email.
Yes, the Employee Workwear program offers apparel that is pre-approved by the Iowa State University Trademark Licensing Office. The program, at present, offers two approved marks: the Athletic I-State mark and the Iowa State University mark.
The Workwear order once processed, billed and manufactured, will be available for pickup at the Iowa State Univerity Book Store, at the Web Order pickup section at TechCyte (the ISU Book Store technology section). Bulk orders, depending on final total quantity, may be delivered to department locations on campus.
Yes. Employees can add different styles of workwear in a single order. It should be noted that orders qualify for bulk pricing as long as the mark (Athletic or University) is the same on all the workwear products being ordered.
Example: If a department orders 2 Polos, 3 Jackets and 3 Cardigans - all featuring the same mark (either Athletic or University) - the order qualifies for the 7-31 units pricing tier. In this case, each of the workwear styles (polo, jacket and cardigan) in the order will be priced at their respective 7-31 units pricing tier.
The Workwear Program requires employees to use the Order Form to submit their orders directly with their departments, which is then confirmed and submitted to the Iowa State University Book Store on the last working day of the month (this allows departments to take advantage of the lower pricing tiers available for collective quantity orders vs. individual orders). The order form allows individuals to choose between two different payment methods:
All workwear order sales are final
The ISU Book Store has all the individual workwear styles available in sizes XS-4XL for employees to try before placing an order. Sizing between different workwear styles vary and do not compare directly to retail apparel sizes. Trying on the products prior to placing the order mitigates posibilities of sizing issues once the order is created and delivered. Given that all workwear orders are customized as per the department/college placing the order, all sales are final and workwear orders cannot be returned, refunded or exchanged.
No. Customized products, as per general retail policies and standards, cannot be returned, refunded or exchanged. All sales are final.
