T shirts, arguably the cornerstone of many a wardrobe and decorator’s business, have never been as interesting as they are now. With more business potential than could possibly be listed, we’re seeing more and more takes on the traditional short sleeved crew than ever before.
Mantis’ Men’s and Women’s Roll Sleeve Ts, with organic certification, provide a ready-made, ready-rolled, look with inspiration taken from vintage, iconic style. Think James Dean or even the T-Birds from Grease: they all wore their Ts with a roll. Whatever the reasoning behind the original roll – and it’s reputed to be one of rebellion – the look remains as current as ever and, while being easy to wear as a standard T, it provides an extra touch of cool. Mantis’ Roll Sleeve Ts are newly available in a charcoal marl in addition to white and classic black, all with tear-off labelling at back neck to make rebranding, or printing in the back neck that much easier.
Continuing the theme is the men’s Vintage T; pre-washed for that old-favourite aesthetic and exclusively in a vintage black colour, it’s ideal for those seeking the perfect base for retro-themed music or iconic imagery prints and is – as per all Mantis World styles – based up with their Well Made commitment to ethical manufacture.
With all things kidswear earmarked within the retail sector to undergo significant growth, Mantis World has been working on its range to ensure that customers can get their hands on credible, modern and interesting kids clothing is from our marketplace too. We all know that T shirts are big business for adultswear and it’s also true for kidswear – but it’s also true to say that today’s younger generation are more style-savvy than ever before and, like their grown-up counterparts, are seeking more fashionable and relevant styles.
Mantis Kids, especially for ages 8 – 12+, was launched in 2015 to react to the growing wants of the younger generation; great styling that’s wearable, fashionable and fit for purpose – and backed up with Mantis World’s commitment to ethical and socially responsible production. The brand new Boys Street T is, ultimately, a short sleeve, crew neck T but it’s got a twist thanks to the striped neckline and contrast double layer sleeve which can be left plain or rolled back as per the now rather iconic look seen on many bands and celebrities. Mantis Kids hasn’t forgotten the girls either; the new Sweat T (also available for women) is a fabulous mix of the T and the Sweat – and already finding a home in dance schools despite being introduced only this year.
