Winter warmers – add an extra layer with a bodywarmer
Whatever you call them – gilet, bodywarmer, fleece waistcoat, sleeveless jackets – as an extra layer, they’re invaluable when the temperatures drop and the weather cools and deteriorates.
To use the dictionary definition, a gilet is a light, sleeveless, padded jacket but the terms tend to be interchangeable when discussing workwear and outdoor clothing. So whether you require a padded bodywarmer or a fleece one we’ve got plenty of options; Take a look in our online brochure.
“A good bodywarmer, which is what we tend to call them, is a great addition to any workwear package,” says Stitch & Print’s Richard Mattinson. “It’s really practical, easy to keep smart and clean, can easily be branded with an embroidered logo and does a great job as a staff team identifier too.”
The Stitch & Print range includes padded and quilted gilets for the outdoors, fleece bodywarmers in a broad spectrum of weights and colours to match other workwear and woven sleeveless jackets with plenty of pockets so that the wearer can keep things secure during the working day.
Some versions incorporate reflective or high visibility materials while others are simply designed for warmth and versatility.
“I think garden centres and outdoor retailers have been amongst our biggest repeat customers for this sort of item,” says Richard, “precisely because they’re the kind of businesses who need people to be working both indoors and outdoors throughout the day. A bodywarmer is exactly what’s required for that sort of flexibility.”
