We hope you have an escape plan for the long weekend. Hanging out in the backyard counts!
Production will be closed for the week of the July 4th – July 8th. We will resume processing orders on Monday July 11th.
The office will be opened during that week so you can drop off and pick up orders.
Wishing you all a Happy and Safe 4th of July!

We have been selling the Hanes X-Temp for a little over a year now and have had some great response from our customers.
Everyone from landscapers, to contractors, to heating/oil repairmen have said how much they like the weight of these tee’s. They are easy to print on and embroider so we like that!
If you have been thinking about a lighter weight tee for your crew for the summer these may be just the thing.
Are you traveling this summer? Here are some ideas for your travel wardrobe.
Ever want to see what some of the gear you may be interested in purchasing looks like on actual people who are actually moving around?
Charles River has stepped up to the plate and put out this video on their newest line for the year. (with real people who are actually moving around…..)
Check out more items from Charles River here.
If you follow this blog at all you know I have a thing for baseball tee’s. I think because they remind me that spring is on it’s way and opening day for the Boston Red Sox is getting closer by the minute.
District Made and Sport Tek are apparently feeling the same way..except I don’t know weather they are Red Sox fans but oh well. Here are their styling tips for the baseball tee.
Besides turning these ideas into high office fashion these tee’s and sweatshirts would be great for corporate team building, spirit wear, company outings, or family gatherings.

For all you with four-legged BFF’s are you ready for this cuteness?
Charles River has just introduced the New Englander Doggie Rain Jacket. It coordinates with the human version so you and your pal can step out in style.
A few of the product features include:
- 100% wind and waterproof shell
- Leash access opening
- Back pocket for doggie bags and treats
- Silver reflective trim for visibility
These jacekts are a great way to promote your pet store, grooming shop, vet practice, or specialty shop that focuses on the tourist trade. (Think Newport, RI in the summer.)
We don’t have a sample in the shop as of yet but if you want to check one out in person drop us a line and we will make it happen.

Check it out! We can help you stay on trend without having to go to a fancy boutique!

We are feeling really cool about now…
I really should spend more time browsing on-line. (And Dale its for research purposes I promise….)
We have a lot of blankets that come through the shop all in great colors. But none ever have patterns. Then while browsing (for research purposes of course) I found these beauties.
Patterned blankets may not work for everyone but they just might kick off your next big marketing/branding idea.
Now back to browsing…I mean research…
The snow day yesterday allowed us (and by us I mean me…) to get the E-Catalogs updated. I even added a couple of new ones. Not sure how I missed these last year but check out the 2016 Pennant and Game catalogs. Great for teams, clubs, and spirit wear.
Our featured catalog today is from Blue Generation. These guys offer a nice range of items for the restaurant, hospitality, and service industries. But there are plenty of garments perfect for the corporate world including cardigans for the ladies and oxfords for the men. The size range on most styles is from XXS thru 5XL. They even have Youth sizes on select items. And their color options are bold which makes it easy to find a color to match most any logo or branding requirement.
While you are working on your promotional ideas for your upcoming events have you given thought to what your crew is going to be wearing? I know, I know, one more thing you have to worry about.
Most folks usually have something they can pull together for the event in the form of a dress shirt or polo but what about after the event walking from the location back to your hotel room….what about going out to dinner after a hard day of promoting your brand? What if the convention/expo center is freezing cold during the summer months?
Fleece jackets and vests are perfect for 95% of our customers that come to us for their apparel needs at show time. What if your industry is in that other 5%?
Port Authority and Devon and Jones have both come out with blazer options for just those special occasions.
Port Authority says about their blazers “Designed for layering comfort, this easy-to-wear, deconstructed style can go from refined to casual and resist wrinkles all day long.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself!
