CHICAGO -- February 19, 2013

Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ:CTAS), the largest uniform supplier in North
America, released its 2013 Uniform Book today. Featuring more than 100 new
colors and styles and three new suiting collections, the 108-page catalog
showcases sharp, retail-inspired and innovative apparel for professionals in a
wide range of industries, including healthcare, hospitality and foodservice.

“Over the years, Cintas’ uniform catalog has become synonymous with fashion,
quality and reliability,” said Kristin Sharp, Director of Design and
Merchandising at Cintas. “This year, we’re proud to showcase our most premium
designer suiting to date, the Jay Godfrey™ and AR Red™ collections, which
represent a natural extension of our modern wardrobe solutions for the

Marrying premium fabrics with runway-inspired designs, the Jay Godfrey™
Suiting Collection—exclusive to Cintas—features slim-fitting silhouettes with
narrow lapels, high-notch collars and shell buttons wrapped in stainless
steel. To create the collection, Cintas partnered with runway fashion designer
Jay Godfrey, who has a celebrity following that includes Eva Longoria, Emma
Stone and Jennifer Lopez. Featuring Godfrey’s signature dot-lining with
magenta piping, the collection is environmentally-friendly and offers a
flattering fit for men and women, regardless of size and body shape.

Also new to the catalog and exclusive to Cintas, the AR Red™ Suiting
Collection blends contemporary style with functionality, environmental
responsibility and attention to detail. Created by the well-known British
brand Austin Reed, the AR Red™ collection is comprised of wool, recycled
polyester and Sorona^®—an innovative, plant-based fiber. The
environmentally-friendly collection features impeccable tailoring and soft,
breathable, durable fabric.

Other new additions include new ties and scarves, stylish blouses and shirts,
two polo collections, functional banquet jackets and industrial launderable
housekeeping. To help keep wearers dry and comfortable and extend the life of
the uniforms, Cintas uses several high-performance fabric finishes, including
moisture-wicking management, mechanical stretch and wrinkle-resistant
technology and UV sun protection. For added comfort and functionality, many of
the garments contain side, underarm or back ventilation and feature large
pockets for housekeepers and other professions that have to accommodate
multiple supplies. To help protect the environment and eliminate the use of
professional dry cleaning, Cintas also offers uniforms that can be laundered
at home, saving employees up to $1,000 annually in dry cleaning costs.

“When people think about uniforms, ‘fashion-forward’ and ‘trendy’ are probably
the last phrases to come to mind,” said Sharp. “However, by partnering with
high-end fashion designers and offering a wide range of colors, sizes and
silhouettes, we can give our customers apparel they want to wear to work that
also reflects their organization’s unique identity and brand.”

In spring, Cintas will launch its new public website,, to
offer customers an improved shopping experience with easier navigation and
in-depth ordering capabilities.
