From traditional Oxfords to practical poplins and modern patterned designs, garment decorators can choose from an increasingly stylish range of brandable shirts and blouses that meets all customer requirements
“Kustom Kit’s selection of contrast premium shirts delivers a fresh shot of colour and personality to the classic Oxford,” says the brand. The KK189 for men and KK789 for women feature contrasting shades to the inner collar stand, inner cuff and cuff placket. The addition of colour sets these tailored fit shirts apart, according to Kustom Kit, making them a great option for companies that are looking to provide a fashionable staff uniform.
Russell’s Long Sleeve Stretch Shirt (993) is made from 90% cotton/10% elastane for a super soft feel and great shape retention. It has a longer length, can be washed at 40°C and tumble dried, and comes in black and white (XS-4XL). The Russell Collection offers 53 different shirt options across men’s and women’s styles, including Classic, Fitted and Tailored fits, in fabrics that include Tencel, Ultimate Stretch, Herringbone, Oxford, Non Iron, Classic Twill and Polycotton Poplin. The brand recommends the Ultimate Stretch Shirt (960 long sleeve, 961 short sleeve) for all-day shape retention thanks to its use of elastomultiester (Lycra T400 fibre).
Classic yet modern
The Henbury range of shirts includes quick-dry styles in specially developed polyester yarn. The Men’s Wicking, Anti-Bac, Quick Dry Short Sleeved Shirt H595 features Pufy permanent wicking yarn with anti-bacterial finish, UV protection and quick-drying properties to protect against stains and odour. It is also available in long sleeves (H590) and in matching women’s styles (H596 and H591), and comes in a choice of eight colours. Also of note are Henbury’s Men’s Long Sleeved Pinpoint Oxford Shirt (H550), made from 170 gsm 80% cotton/20% polyester and Ladies’ Classic Short Sleeved Oxford Shirt (H516).
New blouse range
Grahame Gardner has recently introduced a new women’s Blouse range to its GG corporatewear collection. The patterned blouses come in a variety of colours and styles, including V-necks, classic collars, rounded collars and even collarless. They come in a choice of fits and shapes with alternative fastening options; full button or three buttons. “The new range offers a contemporary classic look, but also something more unique and original,” says the brand.
Orn’s premium, wrinkle-free men’s shirts and women’s blouses are, says the brand, “smart and comfortable, and stay crisp all day”. The 78% cotton/22% polyester garments are available in both long and short sleeve in a wide range of colours and sizes, and have a straight hem with full cut. The men’s range (5600 – 5610) is a regular fit and features a button-down collar, left chest pocket and a box pleat at the back yoke. The women’s range (5650 – 5660) has a revere dual purpose collar, which means it can be worn closed, and has side vents for ease of movement.
Smart options for any workplace
Ralawise highlights the B&C Smart shirt collection, noting “it has a modern fit, quality detailing and a well-balanced polycotton composition”. The Smart Long Sleeve /Men (BA704) shirt is made from easy-care poplin and features cut-away bonded collar, single left chest straight pocket, angular cuffs and square-shaped gauntlets. Also recommended by Ralawise is the Premier range, including the Long Sleeve Poplin Shirt (PR200), available in 30 “electrifying” colours, along with Kustom Kit’s Slim Fit Workwear Oxford Shirt (KK184) and Contemporary Business Blouse (KK747).
