A Great Selection of Regatta Products

At Universal Textiles we are proud to offer customers products from many top brands, including Regatta. Britain’s best loved outdoor clothing and footwear brand, Regatta’s reputation has been built on providing stylish and practical outdoor wear. With over 80 years of industry experience, their range of high quality weatherproof garments are both reliable and durable. They also pride themselves on using ethically sourced materials and providing customers with great value for money.

So whether it be a pair of trousers, gloves or a jacket you need, Regatta have all your outdoor needs covered. Below is just a selection of Regatta products available on our website.

Regatta produce a wide range of high quality fleeces, including this Ladies Thor III Fleece Jacket. Made from a premium yarn, they are lightweight yet warm, as reflected in their GSM (grams per square meter). This particular fleece comes in five colours and has fleece cuffs and an adjustable shockcord hem to maintain heat.

The signature quality expected from the company is also reflected in their hats and gloves. Many of their hats, including the Thermal Winter Fleece Hat, are made with Thinsulate technology. This increased density of fibres enables heat to be maintained, whilst moisture can escape.

Regatta products are ideally suited to outdoor sports such as skiing. This is reflected in these Kids Waterproof Ski Mittens. Both waterproof and made with a thermal lining, these mittens will keep children’s hands dry and warm for hours. The grips on the mittens make ski poles easier to grasp, with an adjustable velcro strap enabling the mittens to achieve the perfect fit.

Whether for work or recreational use, Regatta’s waterproof trousers are renowned for their exceptional quality. The Packaway Waterproof Trousers are one such pair. Both wind and waterproof, the trousers are made with taped seams and press studs at the hem. They also have an elasticated waist and are breathable as well as waterproof, making them comfortable to wear both as an individual garment and atop another pair of trousers.

The garment Regatta is perhaps most noted for, however, is the jacket. Just one of many great jackets available from them, the Benson II 3 in 1 Waterproof Breathable Jacket, features many of the trademark features expected from a Regatta jacket. Made with waterproof and breathable Isotex coated taslan fabric, Isotex is Regatta’s own family of waterproof and breathable fabrics that offers a waterproof performance of up to 20,000mm.

With anti-pill fleece lining for warmth, a concealed hood and a studded stormflap, the jacket is suited to all conditions. It is also windproof, has taped seams and several pockets to store maps, mobile phones and much more.

Choosing Men’s Formal Attire

At Universal Textiles we offer a selection of Men’s Formal Attire, ideal for work or specific events. Below are just some the products available.

The classic oxford shirt is an essential part of many a man’s wardrobe. Made from oxford weave, the B & C Men’s Oxford Shirt is an example of this classic and largely unchanged design. This particular shirt is short sleeved and, as is to be expected from an oxford shirt, has a left breast pocket. The shirt also has narrow cuffs, a button down collar and is available in five colours.

The poplin shirt is an ideal work shirt, as it is both smart and durable. Easy to clean and more resistant to creases and wrinkles, the Premier Men’s Poplin Shirt is available in 24 colours. The shirt has long sleeves with button fastened cuffs as well as a stiffened formal cut collar.

In addition to our range of shirts, we have a variety of premium ties suited to a multitude of formal situations. The Premier Men’s Pure Silk Tie is made from 100% woven pure silk and thus has both the look and feel of high quality. The tie is available in seven subtle yet stylish designs. If, however, you are looking for something a little more for formal dinners and the like, we have this Premier Bow Tie. With classic hook and bar fastening and available in four colours, the garment is made from 100% polyester satin weave.

From Brook Taverner we have a range of high quality suit jackets and trousers. Brook Taverner, based in Yorkshire, is one of the UK’s most respected names in men’s classic tailoring, and is based on three principles: quality, service and price. The exceptional quality of their pieces can be seen in this Imola Single Breasted Suit Jacket. The three button jacket is a stylish and comfortable fit made with a centre vent and fitted with four internal pockets.

Also available from Brook Taverner we have the Avalino Flat Front Suit Trouser. These trousers are a smart and well-fitting addition to a highly formal outfit or merely a shirt and shoes.

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.
