Winter Time Waffles

Temperatures are starting to cool and it’s time to layer up. You may not think it, but when it comes to layering, texture plays an important role. As you present layering options to customers, consider textured options like our Juniors and Young Men’s long sleeve thermals.

Because of their versatility and functionality, thermals are a popular winter garment. They’re lighter and more stylish than a sweatshirt, so they can be worn out as a base layer on a cool night. Because of its ability to withstand cold weather, it’s ideal as a base layer for outdoor winter sports (think collegiate ski clubs). It’s versatility and style factor make it a great piece of merchandise for bars and restaurants.

When pitching thermals to clients, get creative with decoration opportunities. 60/40 cotton/poly fabric makes it receptive to many decoration techniques including sublimation. Younger end-users don’t mind branded apparel, but err on the side of subtlety. Decoration on the shirt’s cuff, sleeve or hem is trending. Keep these in mind when pitching thermal options.


Big League Style

You don’t have to be a ballplayer to appreciate a nice raglan. In fact, the vintage-inspired style has long been a fan-favorite.  With athleisure and varsity looks in high demand, raglans continue to be a must-have vintage style. 

Our microburn fabric offers a unique update to the classic garment. Both our men’s and women’s cuts consist of a 75/25 polyester/ring-spun cotton blend that creates a lightweight and comfortable t-shirt. Additionally, Microburn fabric creates a unique color and shade profile.

From concerts to bars and restaurants, raglans make great merchandise for a variety of end-users. Offer these men’s and ladies styles to customers looking for ¾ and long sleeve options this fall. Get the most out of this style by decorating with trend-right vintage and distressed techniques.


A Trifecta of Comfort, Softness and Style

Basics don’t have to be basic. More and more, customers are interested in elevated styles that end-users will want to wear more than once.

So, who’s in the market for elevated fabrics? From retail boutiques and the fitness industry to schools, corporate and the entertainment industry there’s a growing demand for soft and durable product with a higher perceived value.

Tri-blends are perfect for these customers. The combination of cotton, polyester and rayon create a garment with a unique look, feel and drape. Cotton provides comfort, while polyester increases durability and rayon creates drape. By blending these three threads, tri-blend t-shirts benefit from a trend-right heathered effect.

For customers in search of tri-blend styles, District has options. Check out our wide-ranging selection of tri-blend basics. We carry traditional cuts like tanks, crewnecks, v-necks and scoop necks. We also carry more stylish variations of the tri-blend, which include our Juniors and Young Men’s pieced tri-blends or Ladies Lace Tees.
