Choosing Summer Hats

capSummer is on it’s way, and with the warmer weather for this weekend, and predictions for next week to be sunny, you might need a new baseball cap. Baseball caps are so useful for where ever you are, at the beach, in the garden or even on a day out.

Baseball caps were first introduced in 1860, and, as the name implies were used in baseball. The basic design has not changed much since they were introduced but the colours and fabrics have and now there are many options to choose from.

We stock a wide selection of caps and hats for everyone. For children – if you are worried about keeping the sun off their faces and for men and women for when you are out and about. Bring on the sunshine and view our range here.

Choosing Faux Silk Curtains

You may be thinking about redecorating, and if you’re changing your colour scheme, you might want to think about changing your curtains. Why not choose some faux silk curtains?

Faux is the French word for false and when used with a fabric it simply means that it has the look and feel of the fabric that it is supposed to resemble but it is usually a synthetic fibre. Faux silk curtains have the look and feel of silk and ensures a luxurious touch without the luxury price tag.

The styles that are available come in a variety of colours and come complete with linings and tiebacks to ensure that the room has a ‘finished’ look. These are made from 100% Polyester, which is a synthetic fibre and which is designed to be long lasting and easy to care for while the linings are a blend of Polyester and Cotton. The faux silk curtains can be machine washed at a temperature of 30°c.

The curtains can be used in any room in the house and look great in bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms. As they are one simple colour it is easy to find a pair of curtains that will enhance any chosen colour scheme and they also look great in neutral rooms, where they can be used to add a touch of colour.

Choosing Men’s T-shirts

One of the staple items in any man’s wardrobe for the summer is a t-shirt. T-shirts are so versatile, easy to care for, machine washable and go with everything. We stock over 250 varieties of men’s t-shirts from brands you know and trust.

Our men’s t-shirts come in a variety of colours, which means that they can easily be matched to other items in the wardrobe such as shorts and jeans. One of the latest trends is to opt for lighter, pastel shades. They are practical items that can be worn for sports activities, shopping or just spending time relaxing. They come in a variety of sizes too, so they are perfect for most men.

T-shirts are essential for holidays in the sun. As they are made from cotton, they allow the skin to breathe so they feel light and help to keep the heat off. They are ideal for slipping on, as the strength of the sun becomes too strong and to help prevent the skin from burning. They are also inexpensive items, making them ideal garments for bulk purchases. Many men have at least half a dozen at any one time – most have more.

T-shirts that feature designs are also becoming increasingly popular but in some ways, these are not as versatile as the basic t-shirt. Browse our range here.
