Our Top Picks For 2014’s Summer Of Sport

With the World Cup, Wimbledon, Tour De France and now the Commonwealth Games all taking place, 2014 has truly provided us with a summer of sport. If watching the efforts of the world’s top athletes has inspired you to get moving, Universal Textiles has got everything you need to exercise in comfort and style. We’ve gathered together our top sporting picks from our range of swimwear, clothing and accessories, with everything at excellent prices. Happy shopping!

Whether you’re at the beach or the pool, swimming is a fantastic way for people of all ages to exercise, providing an effective sweat-free workout during the warmer months. Made of lightweight material and a special quick-dry fabric, these Aqua Sphere Mens Tiber Swimming Shorts are a great choice for swimmers of all capabilities, and for women, this Aqua Sphere Lazer Swimsuit is an eye-catching choice, boasting high UVA protection and a supportive cross-back design.

Football fever may now be cooling off following Germany’s triumphant World Cup victory earlier this month, but those in love with ‘The Beautiful Game’ can always keep the dream alive on their terms until 2018 rolls around. Available in a variety of different colours and designs, this Errea Long Sleeve Football Shirt is a stylish choice for men looking to take to the pitch, and these Puma Mens Kratero Football Boots are great for maintaining your footing when conditions are against you.

Without a doubt rugby is one of the toughest sports around, and, with that in mind, players need clothing to match. Produced by leading rugby kit brand Canterbury, this Mens Short Sleeve Hooped Rugby Jersey is certainly up to the challenge, and for smaller players looking to score a try, this matching Kids Short Sleeve Rugby Top is the perfect choice, with sizes to fit boys from six to fourteen years of age.

Cycling can be a great way to fit some quality exercise in around your daily life, whether you’re heading out on a weekend bike ride or simply riding to work. Made from a special performance fabric that’s designed to keep you cool and dry, these mens and womens Spiro Cycling Jackets are the ideal way to work out and stay comfortable, and with their cushioned padding these mens & womens Spiro Bikewear shorts are great for preventing aches and pains from occurring the following day.

A Great Selection of Bags

A quality bag is essential for work, travel, the gym and much more besides. At Universal Textiles we stock a wide range of bags ideal for all such occasions. In this blog we take a look at a small selection of the bags available on our website.

Firstly from Quadra we have this Universal Holdall Bag. Quadra have built a reputation for providing durable and fashionable bags. Their collection of modern, functional, value for money carrying solutions includes this large (35 litres) holdall bag. Great for the gym or travel, this bag comes in seven colours and has multiple pockets, allowing easy access to the bag’s content. The bag also has protective base feet and an adjustable shoulder strap.

The Shugon Hi-Vis Rucksack is ideal for work and used by many for safety and practicality when cycling. The bag has a large 23 litre capacity and several internal pockets. A rubber outlet for earphones allows you to listen to music without fear of your MP3 player being subjected to weather damage, whilst the bag also has an expandable front pocket to fit a ball or helmet.

Again from Quadra we have this Vintage Canvas Messenger Bag. Whether for work or school, this timeless design is an excellent fit for books or documents. Both casual and stylish, the washed canvas design of the bag is complemented by a subtle contrast styled strap.

This Retro Bowling Bag from Bagbase is perfect for the gym. It has a large capacity of 23 litres and has internal mesh and zippered pockets. The bag is adorned with a classic two stripe detail and has strong fabric carry handles.

We stock a variety of sports bags ideal for more specific pursuits as well as the gym. An example of this is the KooGa Boot Bag. The bag is able to comfortably hold shoes and boots up to a size 12, but is not too large for children’s boots, with room for shin pads and other necessary sporting equipment. The bag has the KooGa logo printed on the front and is easy to clean, an essential after a muddy game of football or rugby!

Lastly we have this Barcelona Trolley Holdall Bag from Shugon. This bag is great for airport travel as it has a retractable handle and wheels enabling it to be both pulled as a trolley and carried as a holdall. The bag has an adjustable shoulder strap, one large (53 litres) compartment and an internal base board for protection and shape retention.

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.
