BTC activewear is well known for its strong schoolwear range including the extremely popular Jerzees Schoolgear collection and this year sees many more additions to the class from brands such as Gildan, Fruit Of The Loom, Result, Regatta and Humbugz.

 New for 2014 is the 42000B Gildan Performance Youth T Shirt. Made from a 100% polyester Jersey knit, this T shirt is the ideal garment for sports due to its wicking and anti-microbial properties.  Other features include twin needle hemmed 5/8in sleeves and bottom hem, rib knit three-quarter inch collar and the fact that it is CPSIA tracking label compliant. This T shirt is also available in men’s sizes (42000) and ladies’ sizes (42000L).

The choice of children’s hoodies has further increased with several great new styles from FDM. This range of sweats, hoodies, varsity jackets and jog pants is exclusive to BTC activewear and includes the FH004 Junior Hoodie which offers unisex styling so is great for boys and girls and features a front pouch pocket, set-in sleeve and a hood with double self fabric lining. This hoodie is machine washable at 40°C and with 21 colours to choose from is set to be a popular choice.

The SG range is exclusive to BTC activewear and offers a range of men’s, ladies’ and kid’s clothing in matching styles and colours.
