Choosing Men’s Women’s and Children’s Polo Shirts

This week we are rewarding newsletter subscribers with an extra 15% off our entire range of Men’s, Women’s and Children’s Polo Shirts. A classic design suited to any time of year, the Polo Shirt is a stylish and versatile garment. With a wide range of styles and designs available, here we take a look at just a few of the great Polo Shirts we have on offer.

The double stripe tipping on the collar and cuffs of this Fruit of the Loom Mens Polo makes for one of the iconic Polo Shirt designs. Made with 100% cotton, the three button design is simple yet classic. Available in seven colours, this is a great piece for many an occasion.

Like the classic short sleeve polo, the long sleeve design offers an equally fashionable alternative. This Henbury Mens Polo is great as an individual piece or as part of a layered outfit (with a casual jacket for example). The fit is smart enough for work but casual enough to be worn as an everyday piece.

We also stock a wide variety of Women’s Polo Shirts, including this Gamegear Ladies Sleeveless Polo which represents a modern twist on a classic design. It offers the classic roll tip collar and contrast trim, yet the sleeveless design lends itself to sporting activity through increased ease of movement.

An equally sporting design next, in the form of this Front Row Striped Rugby Polo. With the classic rugby collar and long sleeves, this polo has a bold striped design on each arm. The elastane reinforced cuffs give durability and shape retention to this high quality 100% cotton garment. Perfect for walks in the country and the like, the polo comes in a slimmer feminine fit.

Lastly in the women’s section we have the Henbury Ladies Contrast Polo. This stylish slim fit design is an ever popular choice with our customers, with the subtle contrast design under the collar and on the inner placket making this garment both understated and eye-catching.

Our Children’s Polo Shirts are great for both school and casual wear, with this Fruit of the Loom Kids Polo being an example of this. The long sleeve design is great for helping them staying warm on colder days. Made with Easycare fabric, this garment is easy to clean regardless of what your kids manage to get up to!

Great for PE lessons, the Just Cool Sports Polo comes in ten bold colours. Made with Neoteric TM textured fabric, this is a breathable polo shirt which expels moisture quickly from the body keeping your child comfortable when wearing.

Choosing Men’s T-Shirts and Tops

For many men, the T-Shirt is an integral part of their day to day attire. A versatile garment suited to many outfits, the T-Shirt can be worn throughout the year. Yet with so many styles and designs to choose from, it can be hard to decide which T-Shirts to buy. Here we take a look at a small selection of the T-Shirts available from Universal Textiles.

The retro styling of the baseball shirt is very much on trend at present, with this Fruit of the Loom Baseball T-Shirt being an example. It is available in both short and long sleeves, with a fine knit gauge making printing easier if required. Made from 100% cotton, this product is both high quality and great value.

The Baseball T-Shirt is just one of our extensive range of Fruit of the Loom T-Shirts and Tops. All made to Fruit of the Loom’s exceptionally high standards whilst also offering incredible value for money, you can understand why products such as this Fruit of the Loom Mens T-Shirt are so popular with our customers.

Now the temperatures are beginning to drop again, this Gildan Long Sleeve T-Shirt will be ideal. Made from heavyweight but breathable fabric, this garment can be worn alone or with a coat or jacket. Available in a multitude of colours, this smart-casual piece is suited to many an occasion.

For those looking for something a little different to the standard T-Shirt, this Canvas Deep V-Neck T-Shirt provides a great alternative. This bold style is very much suited to the modern man and can look great coupled with a pair of skinny jeans on a night out.

Another increasingly popular design is the Y-Neck T-Shirt. This Skinni Fit Buttoned T-Shirt is a great example of this. Styled with a contrasting trim around the neck, arm and hem and with a buttoned neckline (hence Y-Neck), this 100% cotton piece is one of the defining garments of this summer’s fashion.

We also stock several vest tops, both for casual and sporting wear. Two examples of the sporting range are the Gamegear Sleeveless Vest Top and the Hanes Sports Vest Top. Both come in several colours, with the Gamegear top having contrasting side panels. The Hanes top is made from breathable high wicking fabric (which draws moisture from the body) whilst the Gamegear piece is made from Cooltex fabric which improves air circulation and allows moisture to escape.
