Since Fall is just around the corner, now's the time to start ordering your hoodies, jackets, sweatpants, and other cold weather merch. With a whole catalog of options, finding the right blanks can be tricky. Here's a breakdown of our top recommendations and the style numbers so you can check them out online for reference.
If you're looking for something low in cost, Gildan has several options. These blanks won't scream "high quality fashion merch," but they'll certainly get the job done. For a lightweight hoodie, there is a Soft Style option available. Gildan's soft style series is a huge jump from the scratchy shirts you're used to from the past so we always recommend choosing a Soft Style option if it's on the table.
