We offer a large selection of the Fruit of the Loom range, simply because they are the best for quality, durability and allow high quality prints. However, here at Clothes2order, we understand it can be difficult knowing which item to go for when facing our large selection.
To help, this post will outline which of the Fruit of the Loom items are best for different occasions and finish with some rather interesting facts about the brand! If you are still not sure what item is the best option for you please do not hesitate to pick up the phone and give us a ring.
For a promotional event you will want that perfect combination of quality, an impressive print and value. We would recommend the Fruit of the Loom Premium Heavyweight t-shirt. It is great value, starting at just £2.26 per printed t-shirt, but is also comfortable and looks great with a promotional image printed on. Just have a look at some of the brilliant reviews and you can feel confident that this will be a durable, great quality option that takes print very well.
If you are looking for a year round uniform we would recommend the Fruit of the Loom Poly/Cotton Polo-shirt. Made from easy care, pique (posh word for courser weave texture) it’s extremely durable and will last wash after wash. The heavier premium fabric means embroidery works well because the fabric can withstand the embroidery needle and thread pulling taut on it.
If you prefer a heavier material, the Fruit of the Loom Heavy Poly/Cotton Polo-shirt should be considered; it is another excellent choice if you need durable workwear.
