01 Jun Summer Apparel
Ya’ll the sun is shining and the air is warm on our skin again! I love this time of year coming out of the chilly Canadian winters and into the warm days of spring and summer. One of the requests I get most this time of year are summer apparel pieces, from t-shirts, to tanks, to headwear! I thought I would share a few of my go-to staple items and personal faves with you in case you decide you want to do some HOT apparel for your summer promotions!
The Good: ATC Everyday T-shirt – This is a great, cost-effective Tee that is usually in pretty deep inventory. I love this t-shirt for summer events because it’s very cost effective while still providing that great value in a 100% cotton shirt. Screen print your logo in 1-4 colours on these tees which provide a beautiful canvas for your branding!
The Better: The Euro Ring Spun Tee is a softer version of the everyday tee that will have your team feeling cozy and comfy! Ring spun cotton is a softer thread used for these shirts, and in turn is more durable and typically lasts longer than a standard cotton!
The Best: The Kayak Tee: Made in Canada, this t-shirt is made from a 100% combed cotton that is made to last. Pre washed for minimal shrinkage; this tee is the cream of the crop of tees! Perfect to recognize your staff or top-level clients, this tee is sure to wow, and you can feel good knowing it’s made in Canada supporting our fellow Canadian businesses!
The Good: Everyday cap: Perfect for staff and client giveaways alike, these everyday caps are sure to get the job done while not breaking the bank! Embroider your logo on the front or side panels.
The Better: Heather Front Accent Mesh Back Cap: This cap pulls from the heathered retail trends with its front heather grey panel as the perfect back drop for your logo! With over 8 accent colours to choose from for the bills of the cap, you’re sure to find one that fits best with your branding! And the white mesh backing will keep you cool on those sweltering summer days!
The Best: Nike Legacy Cap: If you want to wow with your headwear look no further than the beautiful Nike legacy cap, adorned with the iconic swoosh on the bill of the cap, and available in 5 colours, this hat has incredible quality that will have your recipients loving it! And if Nike’s not your vibe we have lots of other quality retail brands like Callaway, New Era, and Puma!
The Good: The Reliance lightweight shell makes travel a breeze. This 100% polyester packable water-resistant jacket features reverse coil zippers, and front pockets with zippers. Perfect to have on in those summer days where you don’t know what the weather is going to throw at you!
The Better: The Stormtech Tritium Shell is one of my favorite jackets that I have in my closet and use all the time! Perfect for cooler or windier days, with stylish accents on the lady’s jacket, this makes the perfect staff or client appreciation piece. A jacket they will keep in their closet for years to come!
The Best: Stormtech Squall jacket: This classically styled, water-resistant and windproof raincoat with a matte finish is both stylish and practical. Features include ultrasonically welded waterproof seams for permanent wet weather protection, flapped snap closure hand pockets, partially elasticized cuffs, extra length for added coverage, and underarm and back venting which allows heat to escape without letting moisture in.
The Good: The Spin: Style and colour that stand the test of time – The Spin Pique Polo is one of our top-selling polos. Made with spin dye technology, an eco-friendly production process where the colour pigment is fused with the yarn to save 95% of the water and 90% of energy it takes to dye yarns using traditional methods, results in long lasting colour that never fades. Perfect entry level polo that doesn’t feel like one!
The Better: The Profile: Made from a cotton/poly blend, this polo has a luxury fabric texture and feel, with natural breathable fibers for cool comfort on those hot days! Ladies style features Y-line placket, for added comfort and style! This is a perfect all-around polo at a great price point!
The Best: Puma Icon Heather Polo: This ultra-lightweight, moisture wicking, space-dyed heathered polo is a beauty! Whether you’re on or off the golf course this polo is silky soft, has the puma brand recognition, and will wash and wear like a dream. The heather colours give an updated look on classic polos, and recipients will be sure to wear this out and about for all their summer activities!
