Here are the biggest highlights of each:

Fruit of the Loom Original T-Shirt

This is a classic t-shirt, suitable to all uses ranging from corporate to casual.

It comes in 22 different colours, of which 21 are made from 100% cotton*.

According to former customer, Barrie, these t-shirts “are extremely well made & really look very smart when worn. They fit well & are very comfortable. They also wash up well & retain their shape, even after numerous washes. All in all, a most acceptable product at an attractive price”.

What’s more, the price is now even more attractive; we’ve reduced these tees from £2.33 to £1.65 per garment.

*Heather Grey is 97% cotton, 3% polyester

Tee Jays Luxury Polo

If you’re looking for a slightly more formal, perhaps even classier, short-sleeved top, this Luxury Stretch Polo is the way to go.

It comes in 15 colours, and all of which are made of 95% ring spun cotton, guaranteeing a flattering, tailored fit.

Grab them while you can, as they’re currently reduced by 33%!

AWDis Street Hoodie 

For a cool-yet-warm layer, look no further than this hoodie.

As Peter from Braunton can attest, “this Street Hoodie is the best fit of any hoodie [he has] had.” He also says he wears his hoodie regularly and finds it very comfortable.

And if that doesn’t convince you, it’s only half price!

And last, but certainly not least, is…

Regatta Thor III Fleece Jacket 

This fleece is warm, soft, quick-drying, and less likely to form bobbles. Its zipped pockets are practically safe, and the jacket itself can also zip into other Regatta products for an extra layer of water-resistance. It also comes in a surprising number of colours!

This is the fleece our staff wears to work most days of the week because we love it that much.

Regatta jacketJacket comes from the French and means an outer garment that is shorter than a coat, and the original jacket was worn under a coat, rather than instead of it. The coat would be long and thin and the jacket beneath it would have padding to add warmth.

These days we wear jackets instead of coats because they are smaller and lighter in weight but also because modern clothing technology means we can be just as warm with a slim jacket as our ancestors were with a thick jacket and a topcoat over it.

Choosing a winter jacket seems easy, because there are so many around, but getting the right one for you requires a bit of thought. A jacket should fit, suit your body shape and lifestyle and work with the rest of your clothing.

Fleece jackets are practical and lightweight but don’t keep you dry, so some jackets have a fleece lining and a waterproof outer layer to combine the best of both systems. Any fleece should fit comfortably around the body but allow enough room for easy movement.

More substantial winter jackets may have hoods and waist and wrist fastenings to exclude wind, rain and snow. These jackets should fit more snugly so that you can achieve a weather-tight closure at waist and wrist.

For women who are pear-shaped, a jacket with collar and shoulder details can even out the body shape and make you look less bottom heavy, while those with a more angular figure might like to choose a jacket with a belt or a drawstring waist to add curves to their form.

Always choose a colour that works well with the bulk of your wardrobe and if you’re going to be out at night, think about high-visibility jackets or a vest that you can pull on over other clothing so you can be seen by drivers.
