As Remembrance Day nears, poppies are popping up everywhere on-screen.  Even Prince Charles and Camilla are going all-out, sporting TWO red blooms on their jackets.

Which leads to a brainstorm of opportunity: why not wear your company logo year-round?  It can be a large button on your collar, or a shirt with a symbol of your company or passion.  Don't wear a hat, however.  It's a distracting prop.

Even if it consists solely of lettering on the back of a top, don't miss an opportunity to wear it.  News camerapeople frequently take behind-the-back shots of interviewees, while a reporter looks at the subject, silently nodding (it's for b-roll for editing later in the edit suite).
