Nike Golf Therma-FIT Hypervis 1/2-Zip Cover-Up

I got to see The Nike Golf Therma-FIT Hypervis cover up when our sales rep debut it a couple of months ago. I forgot all about it until one of our customers ordered one. I also forgot how nice they are.

The chevron design  is  subdued enough to work with your logo without overwhelming it. The contrasting zipper and interior color adds a pop of color making it easy to layer over your other golf gear.

It is made of 100% polyester Therma-Fit fabric which keeps it, soft, light weight and temperature regulating. (How that exactly works I am not sure but it sounds impressive. Our customer that orders them is going to keep me posted on that!)

And for the ladies it comes in a full zip style with thumb holes at the cuff for extra warmth.

Perfect for golf outings (obviously), corporate events, employee incentives and vendor gifts.

Just in from Hanes! The new Hanes X-Temp Triblend tee’s.

This tee still offers the light weight feel with 40+ UPF protection of the original X-Temp 4200 we reviewed last June but with a blend of 30% cotton / 60% polyester / and 10% rayon the feel is super soft. The heather  color palette offers a contemporary look perfect for all occasions and events.

We have a sample in the shop so feel free to stop by and give it a once over. If you want a spec sheet e-mailed to you feel free to give us a shout by using the Contact Us button.

Tie Dye for Summer

Tie Dye always makes me think of summer. Well that and the 1960’s.

While Tie Die is usually  associated with the 1960’s culture it had a  resurgence back in the early 90’s with lots of neon colors. (I can attest to that. I had many a company outing shirt from that era in blindingly bright colors.) Since then it has stayed just below the radar making a fashion come back every couple of years. Because it is not typical, it can make your application of it all the more memorable. (Notice I still remember those tees from the 90’s. Wish I could still fit in to them too….)

Dyenomite (the brand pictured above) has a variety of Tie Dye gear can be just the thing for:

  • Company Outings and team building (who wouldn’t want to be on team Tie Dye!)
  • Family Reunions
  • Summer Leagues
  • Fund Raising Events

The tie dye process looks best with one color logos that are on the larger size with big details. Anything too small and intricate will get lost in the explosion of color. The paw print and heart shaped features on two of the tees works really well for school initials or event dates.

And of course if you want to try your hand at Tie Dye DIY that is cool too. For small runs we can apply CAD cut Vinyl that will make even the smallest event one to remember.

Comfort Colors 2017

Gildan bought Comfort Colors last year and it was an awkward transition for a lot of our customers. There was very low stock in popular colors  and sizes and production times for restocking  those items  was often very very long.

Comfort Colors 2017

Their new catalog has just been released and  they are hitting the ground running for the spring 2017 season. New colors, new items, new materials and so far good stock levels in their most popular products.

Here is a peek at a couple of new items. As you flip through the catalog above keep an eye out for more new stuff being introduced this summer.

Spring Trends 2017

Spring is here! The weather is still not completely spring like yet but here are a couple of trends to get you in the mood.

I usually think of more pastelly (this may not  be a real word but….) colors for spring but Pantone says otherwise. Lighter tones without all the pastelliness. (again pretty sure I made that word up too.)

District Made is bringing back a trend from the mid 90’s with their drapey tank over a fitted white tee. Add some of your designs via heat transfers and you are on point.

 

I got to see the new Mineral Freeze trend in person a few weeks ago. We featured these items on the blog awhile back and here is how Sport Tek is styling them. The Mineral Freeze is a curious trend very popular with the younger sport teams. 

All of the gear with item numbers are available now so you can start your own Spring 2017 trends.
