We are well into our 2014 season and we’ve been quite excited about some of the latest offerings from our favorite uniform and apparel vendors. We took a moment to highlight some of the t-shirts and polos that are really an impact on our clientele. A few of the following shirts have an increased purchasing trend amongst our customers, and some of the newer releases will likely fall in line with popularity. We are seeing our manufacturers putting out a lot of colored heather fabrics, pockets are making a comeback, and 100% polyester tees are taking off. We’ll explain further…
S650 – Port Authority Ultra Stretch Pocket Polo Perhaps the most popular of last year’s additions, this performance polo features a 92% polyester 8% spandex moisture wicking fabric. This polo is available in both men,s & women’s sizes and is available in three colors (Slate Grey [shown], Regatta Blue, and Black. The three most popular features of this polo are the feel, streamlined pocket, and back seam detail. The feel of the shirt is ultra smooth with a little “give” that snaps back wrinkle-free courtesy of the spandex blend which provides a perfect drape. It’s a lightweight and breathable polo. The sleek welted chest pocket (left chest) provides a lo-profile look and feel that might appeal to people who have never before preferred a pocketed polo. The pocket is positioned best for “above-the-pocket” embroidery. The most unique design aspect of this Ultra Stretch polo is the back seam detail. Three separate back panels come together with two vertical double needle stitched seams for a more business casual look, much like the infamous guayaberas seen in regularly right here in Florida. This shirt is available in sizes XS – 4XL and retails for 29.95 individually. We at Sew Shore offer this price discounted for group and bulk orders.[divider]
K557 Port Authority Double Pocket Pique Polo This is a new polo by Port Authority, introduced February 2014. 5.2oz 55/45 cotton/poly blend available in both men’s and women’s sizing (ladies fit shown in header picture). This particular polo features dual button-through flap patch pockets. Another feature of this shirt is the vented sides. Available in 6 different heather colors (Black, Marina Blue, Dress Blue [shown], Monument Grey, Purple, and Red). We predict this will be a popular fashion forward polo for 2014, and we will be featuring tone on tone embroidery for this particular polo as part of our Sew Shore uniform. For those in the service industry, a similar fitting, single pocket, stain resistant version is available. This shirt is available in sizes XS – 4XL and retails at $24.95 individually. [divider]
7384 Pebble Beach Performance Polo We’ve supplied Pebble Beach apparel for years. However, some recent revamps in design styles have encouraged us to make this one of our “Go-To” polos. Featuring a 94% Polyester 6% Spandex moisture wicking blend, this shirt rivals the superiority of a Nike “Tour” polo at a lesser price point. The soft stretch fabric of this shirt does not feel clingy and drapes perfectly across the shoulders, chest, and torso. Available in six colors (Charcoal, Coral, Caviar Black, Ocean Blue, White, and Navy) and sizes Small – 3XL. MSRP for this outstanding polo starts at $47 but, we offer them at $32ea for all in-house orders. Dye Sublimation available.

42000 Gildan Performance Tee The Dye Sublimation trend has really taken off. We offer in-house dye sublimation printing at Sew Shore.

Gildan has expanded their line of 100% ringspung polyester shirts into a plethora of colors never before available. We are pleased to offer dye sublimation on 14 of the 18 colors available. This shirt is also available for screen printing for those seeking moisture wicking properties of a performance shirt with out the shine and sheen of performance apparel.
