Trutex Schoolwear

Wednesday, 28 August 2013

We were fortunate enough to be selected by Trutex to review some of their range of school uniform. As he is the eldest boy, we decided that J would review the items and together he & I chose trousers, shirts and some PE joggers. As well as being comfortable, he wants to look good in what he wears and to be smart and well turned out for the new term.
The flat front trousers in black have an adjustable waist, which is ideal for our needs as J is tall but very slim and needs the leg length. This can often mean extra room around the waist which is unnecessary, so having room to grow & move without the trousers hanging off him is perfect. It also comes with a belt to ensure the most comfortable fit.
The waistband is fully lined for extra comfort, and the easy-care trouser fabric feels thick and strong, which is a must for my football-loving son (he's put the knees through in previous years!).
J says that they are comfortable to wear, as well as looking smart. We chose the size judging by his height, as he is tall for his age. We have found that this was the best & most accurate way to ensure the right fit, as the trousers have room for him to grow but aren't too long or baggy.

The 2-pack of long sleeve non-iron (my favourite!) white school shirts complement the trousers perfectly. He wears an age 13 shirt with 14" collar, the sleeves are a good length with room for him to grow. The shirt & trousers look great with his school logo blazer and he'll be staring year eight looking very dapper indeed.

In addition to his everyday school uniform, J selected a pair of AKOA pitchside training pants in black to wear for PE & also for his football training sessions midweek for our local U13s team.

The joggers are fully lined and lightweight and have an elasticated waist with zip pockets & side leg openings. They're also super soft and J is looking forward to giving them their first run-out when school starts back & his new football season begins. They also feature an adjustable tie waist and are roomy enough to be able to wear shorts underneath if necessary.

Included with the uniform was a back to school guide that Trutex have produced for the first time this year. It features great advice from leading experts such as the NSPCC, Beat Bullying, The Children's Food Trust and many other associations & charities providing help & advice about managing the back to school period with your tweens & teens. The guide has been distributed to schools & uniform retailers throughout the UK.
