Ever wondered which garments and accessories industry professionals prefer? Each issue, one reader tells us why they rate a particular style

This month, Jordan Crumpton, director of The Uniform Room in Dudley, picks out the Premier Coolchecker Plus Piqué Polo – Coolplus (PR630) as his favourite item to decorate.

Jordan is impressed with the garment’s versatility and says that it appeals to a wide range of clients.

“This polo shirt is suitable for a number of different industries, from the catering and hospitality industry to more office-based environments,” he explains. “It’s a modern piece of workwear which acts as a smart alternative to a shirt.”

He also likes the fact that there’s a wide range of colour and sizing options. 

“It now comes in 16 different colours and has a sizing range from small to 6XL. It comes in both a male and female fit and boasts wicking features that help draw moisture away from the body in hot conditions.”

Jordan admits that 100% polyester garments can sometimes be more challenging (“a nightmare”) to embroider, so he has the following tip for decorators: “If you’re using a dense design, use a cutaway stabiliser, so that the stabiliser stays with the design for the life of the item.”
