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.

Wimbledon 2014: Our Top Tennis Picks

Whether you’re the next Andy Murray or simply starting out, we’ve got everything you need to get active this summer. Who knows, maybe it’ll be you lifting the trophy this time next year! Happy shopping!

Stable and supportive footwear is an important consideration when it comes to any sport, and tennis is certainly no exception. Boasting a specially designed shock-absorbing midsole and carefully engineered side vents, these Skechers Diamond Back Tevor Mens Shoes are the ideal choice for men who take their sport seriously, and these Skechers Ladies Flex Appeal Trainers offer similar benefits for female feet.

Sports socks are also vital for protecting hard-working feet during tiring athletic activities, helping to prevent painful blisters from popping up. These Mens Plain Sports Socks are a simple but effective choice, with a cotton rich build that also incorporates elastane for a comfy stretch fit. Ideal for both men and women, these Kariban Trainer Sport Socks are another great option, offering a thinner blend of material and a lower, more subtle cut.

Come rain or shine, you’re guaranteed to work up a sweat whilst playing tennis, and therefore lightweight clothing is an absolute must. For men, these Kariban Sports Shorts are the perfect choice, boasting an elasticated waist and special quick drying fabric. Skorts are also popular amongst female players, blending together the lightweight build of a skirt with the added modesty that shorts provide. This Rhino Performance Skort is a great example, with its stretch fabric build also allowing athletes to move freely on the court.

Of course, with all this new gear, you’re going to need something to put it in! This Sols Calcio Sports Holdall is perfect for storing everything from clothing and accessories to personal items, and even comes with a special compartment for shoes and boots.

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.
