Choosing Women’s Shorts

shortsShorts are perfect for this time of year. The sun is shining, Summer is warming up and it’s the perfect time for being outside.

Shorts are an ideal Summer garment. They allow you to keep cool and yet give you a bit more versatility than, say, a dress or a skirt. There are many varieties of shorts such as cargo shorts which typically come down to the knee, hot pants which usually finish quite high up the leg and then there are shorts which finish mid thigh. It all depends on the wearer as to what length you choose. Shorts look great when paired with a funky t-shirt and some pretty sandals.

We stock all varieties of shorts in many lovely Summer colours. Browse our range here.

Men’s Belts

Belts are one of the oldest wardrobe staples, dating back to the Bronze Age! The style we know became popular in the latter half of the 19th Century, up until the first world war, where it was most popular as a part of a soldiers uniform.

Nowadays, belts come in many different styles with many different materials used. Work belts are useful to have in your wardrobe as they are hard wearing and will last a long time, and will help keep your trousers fitted while you’re on the move.

Our work belts, which all come in black from brands like Dickies and Nike are canvas belts which offer durability and quality. Have a look at our range here.

Jogging bottoms

For those of you that are still sticking to your new year’s resolutions, or for some of you that will be making the decision to exercise in February after the January rush, you will need a quality pair of jogging bottoms.

Tracksuit bottoms are made from soft cotton or polyester and are usually worn for athletic pursuits or for lounging around the house. They are usually quite baggy, ideal for movement and comfort. As they are loose, they trap less heat which is ideal for when you’re working up a sweat in the gym.

Our jogging bottoms are mostly made from cotton and come in a variety of colours and designs, some with an ankle cuff and some without, so whatever your taste, we’ll have something for you.

Choosing children’s jogging bottoms

Children’s jogging bottoms are a godsend.  They are easy to wash, perfect for all the outdoor activities that children love and are ideal for children of all ages.  Having casual wear like this is a great asset as it can save smarter clothes from general wear and tear and they are also perfect for wearing for sports at school, particularly on colder days when shorts and gym skirts are just not enough.

The children’s jogging bottoms are made from a blend of cotton and polyester. Cotton is a natural fibre that allows the skin to breathe and is light to wear.  Polyester is a synthetic fibre which is designed to prolong the life of the fabric and allow it to dry much more quickly when it has been washed.  The fabric is machine washable.

The waistband on the children’s jogging bottoms is elasticated and adjustable with ties so that they will fit well and comfortably.  The cuffs are also elasticated so that there is no danger of tripping over the end of the leg.  There is a back pocket and two side pockets which can both be fastened with a zip, so this is ideal for holding items such as a house key or phone while the child is out.

The sizes vary but the garments are ideal for children of all ages, from when they are toddlers right through to their teenage years and they can be worn with t-shirts, sweatshirts or jumpers.
