GQ’s designer of the year

Happy 2012 to everyone! This year is set to be even bigger than the last in our corporate wear department including plenty more fashion developments to keep us on our toes.

Picking up on the latest corporate wear uk and worldwide news, we wanted to comment on GQ’s designer of the year 2011 who was announced late last year, Tommy Hilfiger. Here is what GQ had to say “while many of his peers create an exclusive world into which they invite you, Hilfiger’s true genius has been to go out and sell the sartorial dream to the global Everyman.” Tommy Hilfiger himself says “preppy with an edge is what we have brought to the fashion business.”

We think this an excellent choice for fashion designer of the year and can’t wait to see what is in store in 2012. Keltic clothing’s design team have definitely taken inspiration for our range of corporatewear from Tommy Hilfiger and will continue to develop our new ranges with this in mind.

Patrol Mitt Review

Our brand new Patrol Mitt waterproof gloves have been launched recently just in time for the cold weather. We have had a great review from a serving police constable in the UK who has worn the new waterproof mittens on foot patrol and whilst driving, also whilst out road running on some extremely cold mornings. See below for his great feedback.

Our brand new waterproof mittens

“I found them very comfortable and snug. My first impressions were that there was simply a build up of heat from within the glove, almost as if I had some mini hand warmers in there.  It is quite unique and a bit difficult to describe. I thought that my hands would have been sweating, however when I removed the gloves, my hands felt fine and there was no moisture or sweat of any sort. They certainly keep the hands warm when required. I’m sure this has something to do with the three layers of fleece material contained within the waterproof glove.

On the top of the glove there is what I would call a small dome of fleece material which is fastened by velcro to the glove. In addition to this, the fingers of the glove have the top removed, in order that this fleece dome can be placed over the fingers when not requiring the fingers to be used for writing tickets or any other purpose.

On to the palm of the glove, the material is completely different from the rest of the glove. The palm is embossed with a rough, leather like material which allows for a very strong grip, even whilst driving. At the cuff area, there is a small tab which is handily placed when trying to pull the gloves on, also the cuff area is elasticated, but not too tightly meaning that you know your gloves are never going to slide off at any moment.

Over the last couple of days when the weather has been wintry I have been wearing the waterproof mitten at every opportunity to test out their waterproofing capabilities. I used them whilst scraping my car, walking the dog in the rain, shovelling salt etc. There was never any saturation of water or ice onto the glove and I found when using the mitts in these conditions there was still a continual build up of heat within as I have referred to earlier.

In summary I would say that the Patrol Mitt would be a very wise selection for anyone looking for a pair of reliable, warm thermal waterproof gloves in these cold winter months. From a police point of view, the fact that you can detach the fingers allowing easy access for writing is a definite selling point. These gloves signal a move away from a more traditional plain leather black glove and are a break from the norm. I would certainly recommend them”.

Magnum Strider field-tested for water resistance

Magnum shoes UK

Magnum Strider Boot

A police Constable in the North reviewed our brand new Magnum Strider boots for a week whilst completing the tough day to day duties that police officers face. Hot off the press from our Magnum strider shoe, our boots are set to be a complete success.

Here’s what he had to say about the excellent waterproofing qualities of the magnum Strider boot.

“During the week long test, there was one day of continuing heavy rainfall. I had the pleasure of having to walk through a couple of fields which were extremely saturated. I was the only one who came out of the other end with dry feet; I took great pleasure of explaining the benefits of the Strider boot’s technology to my colleagues.”

This technology is that of the Ion mask which offers a breathable and waterproof covering that allows the boot to repel water, dirt and chemicals whilst being easy to clean and be quick drying.

For more information on our Magnum shoes and boots or if you are interested in providing your own review, please call us on 08450 66 66 99 – we’d love to hear from you!
