SQL 2008 How to specify column name when using case statement

This should be simple... How to specify a column name "as ....." when using a case statement (in bold below).

COALESCE(T1.POSTCODE_FW, '') as 'Zip Code',
COALESCE(T1.VENDOR_SPECIALTY_FW, '') as 'Vendor Specialty',
COALESCE(T1.VENDOR_TYPE_FW, '') as 'Vendor Type',

CASE
      WHEN T1.SUPSTATUS_FW = '0' THEN ''
      WHEN T1.SUPSTATUS_FW = '1' THEN 'YES'
      ELSE ''
END,


COALESCE(CONVERT(varchar(10), T2.START_DATE_FW, 101), '') as 'Start Date',
COALESCE(CONVERT(varchar(10), T2.END_DATE_FW, 101), '') as 'End Date',

You can assign a fieldname two ways
1. fieldname = calculation, or
2. calculation as fieldname

My preference is the first option, so you don't have to look at the end of a really long line:
--example 1:
SELECT	SomeColumnName =	CASE  T1.SUPSTATUS_FW 
					WHEN '1' THEN 'YES'
					ELSE ''
				END
FROM	SomeTable

--example 2:
SELECT	CASE  T1.SUPSTATUS_FW 
		WHEN '1' THEN 'YES'
		ELSE ''
	END AS SomeColumnName
FROM	SomeTable
