Jacket Season is here


Jacket Season

The fall leaves on the ground mean it is jacket season. Summer is gone and tee shirts are now being put in the drawers. Out of the closest comes the jackets.  This is the time to think jackets for the holiday gift giving season.

With the onset of winter jackets are great for those cold morning Seattle walks and wearing to work in the mornings. Promotional jackets are a great way to get brand recognition in the cold weather.

Jacket styles are changing

Jacket styles are changing and this season more jackets made with technical fabric will be seen. Thin shelled nylon jackets are rapidly making their way to the bottom of the list. Polar fleece once ever so popular is a product of the past. Some companies are promoting the resurgence of denim jackets. It seems hard for a denim jacket to compete with the new technical fabrics on the market today. Personally I think denim jackets should stay at the goodwill.

Functional Materials

Functional materials are in this year. Water resistant and breathable synthetic fabrics are in. Check out Under Armor the leader in performance fabric for new styles. Northwest Custom Apparel is a distributor of Under Armor apparel.

Other popular fabrics this year are spandex, water proof jackets with taped seams, moisture winking and water resistance materials.

Jackets are expensive for promotional giveaways

Jackets or outerwear are one of the most expensive promotional products but are actually the longest lasting. A quality jacket will be worn long after the promotional coffee cup is thrown in the backseat of your car.

A quality jacket will guarantee more brand exposure because it will be worn and noticed. A nice logoed jacket worn in public will be noticed. It is also a great conversation starter.

This month is Breast Cancer Awarness month. Northwest Custom Apparel has a very big line of pink jackets, caps and fleece. This is the time of the year to dress up nice and warm in pink.

Northwest Custom Apparel the northwest leader in decorated outerwear mission is to knock your socks off and offer products which will be worn. Our garments are not destined to be put in the back of the closet.
