Our Recommendations for Work Jackets for this Winter

Staring out of the window, watching the rain pelt down then get blown in sheets across the road & pavement ……. It’s a natural part of life throughout the UK. In Cumbria it’s a reality as well as a necessity; It’s pretty hard to have a Lake District without a bit of rain ………

Thankfully man didn’t just discover fire …… We invented the jacket too!

As you can see from browsing through our online brochure we have a massive range of work jackets & coats suitable for the full range of UK weather. But who wants to trawl through 200 different types of jacket in the hope of finding the one you like, that will keep you dry & warm? So here’s some recommendations!

Russell 510f softshell work jacket in grey - women's version

Russel 510F Softshell Jacket

Light weight shell jacket: We’re real fans of the Russell 510 as a softshell work jacket. It comes in both unisex & ladies fits as well as a childrens version in a range of colours. It has a great range of features & accessories including a fold away hood. If you’re looking for a great quality lightweight work jacket you can’t go wrong with the 510 series.

Our other recommendation in this range would be the Result RS111 range. Again available in both unisex & ladies fit the RS111 has a similar range of great features including availability in moss coloured finish which is ideal for those working in a countryside environment.

Both the 510 & RS111 ranges come in at under £50 including embroidery so as well as being stylish & practical they’re not breaking the bank.

Soft Shell Jacket: The range in soft shell jackets just keeps growing & growing. The mix of the weatherproof polyester outers with weatherproof membranes & micro fleece lining proves to be a winner where customers want to be warm & dry without the associated bulk of full fleece lined or wadding filled jackets.

It’s pretty hard to spot massive differences in the quality of the soft shell range, but for us the Result range has the edge in feel, look & most definitely price. Coming in at £35 including embroidery The RS121 comes in unisex, ladies fitted & kids versions, features decorative yokes as well as a zipped chest pocket. The smart business look is ideal for a whole range of industries & adds a real professional look to a workwear jacket for your staff uniform line.

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.”
