The Ladies Penthouse Polo from Blue Max Banner works across a range of environments and has a great reputation for providing a stable base for embroidery and printing. It offers all the benefits of the original unisex Penthouse Polo but with a flattering, shaped fit. It is made from a 200-210 gsm super tight knit fabric that holds its shape and colour, and comes in nine colours.

“Affordable fashion has enabled Ralawise to offer stylish, customisable garments at great prices,” says the distributor. Brave Soul has a wide range of fast fashion clothing for women including the Shelly Ladies Boho Embroidered Vest (BS162). Made from a loose fit, lightweight rayon fabric, this embroidered top is available in black and cream styles. Also from Ralawise are Asquith & Fox’s trousers and shorts (AQ060 and AQ061), and SF’s Unisex Drop Shoulder Slogan Top (SF514) and Reversible Work-Out Leggings (SK424).

The Contemporary Business Shirt (KK747) from Kustom Kit, inspired by retail trends, is a mercerised cotton polyester poplin shirt that features a placket with extra buttons and cleverly-placed stitching to prevent gaping. Also included are a princess-seamed back panel for enhanced fit and an adjustable one-button cuff with pleated detail. It comes in light blue, white and black, and in sizes 8-20.

The new Scoop Back V (M119) T-shirt from Mantis World is new for 2016. It can, if desired, be worn back-to-front to offer a low, curved neckline. “It’s new, it’s unique and it’s made with organic cotton, further demonstrating Mantis World’s determination to promote sustainable fabrics in credible and modern styling,” says the brand. As with all the new styles, it comes with a tear-off size and style tab in the back neck to facilitate personalisation.

It has a half-moon yoke at the neck for increased strength, and comes in a choice of 12 colours.
