New Prints for the Pack-In-Go Pullover

Charles River just added these two prints to their ever growing color collection in their Pack-In-Go series.

They also added this cute polka dotted pattern to their Chatham Anorak and Pack-In-Go poncho.

As the weather cools these will be perfect for any outdoor event or as employee gifts as the holiday season approaches. (yes.. we are already looking ahead to the holiday season….)

Charles River Doggie Rain Gear

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.

The Four Top Sweatshirts of The Week

We all know this awesome weather won’t last and therefore the heavy weight sweatshirts are flying out the door.

The most asked question this week was “What do you have for sweatshirts.” So I thought I would pull together the top four that we have seen the most orders for in the past two weeks.

First up is the Champion 12oz Reverse Weave Hoodie.


This is by far our most popular hoodie for all our customers from landscapers to construction workers to those in the restaurant business that offer delivery service.

Second is this gem by Camber.


As you can see by the picture above it is a true thermal hoodie This is made here in the USA and while it is a bit more pricey if you work outside during the coldest months it will be well worth the extra spent. This comes in Safety Orange and Safety Green as well.

Third is the Gildan 9oz Ringspun Hoodie.


Not as heavy weight as the first two but if you are doing more work indoors this would be the choice for you.

Last is  from Charles River. It is brand new so we actually haven’t had any orders for this yet but customers are sampling it to see how they like it.


This is the Charles River Thermal Bonded Sherpa Lined Full Zip sweatshirt. It weighs in at 11oz of coziness. It has a waffle weave exterior and we are finding mix reactions to its look. Kind of like dry fit polo shirts vs. cotton …you either love them or hate them.

So there you have it. The top four sweatshirts of the week. Come on by to check out our samples.

Finally Some Rain!

It is raining here in Portsmouth and we really need it. Which means of course that we also really need new rain gear.

Here is some of the new rain gear being previewed this Fall.

We are finding a lot of companies are getting rain gear for their employees as thank you gifts and to be given out at Summer/Fall corporate events. You however may just need coverage on the side lines as you root on your favorite pee wee player.

There are lots more styles in our e-catalog section too so don’t forget to check those out for more ideas.


Charles River Fall 2015 Preview

Our Charles River sales rep (hi Chris!)  stopped by to let us know about the new goodies that will be arriving in the next couple of weeks. I snagged these photo’s from the brochure he left. There here are some bright spots in a couple of the shots from trying to photograph under our lovely florescent lighting…but I think you get the general idea.

I am in love with item the City Sweatshirt #9653 and I am really happy to see a new color added for the Women’s Cardigan Wrap #5555.

Click on the photo to see the full item.

Also new the Rev Jacket and Rev Pants which are perfect for up coming fall sport programs.

Samples of the new products will be arriving in the shop in the next couple of weeks. I can’t guarantee the new City Sweatshirt will make it to the racks because I will be absconding with it as soon as it comes in.

2016 Charles River catalogs are being run now and will be in print for you to pick up and up under the E-Catalog tab on our website shortly.
