While blazers and knitted jumpers are still a central component of many school uniforms, in recent years many schools have also adapted their uniforms to include school sweaters. In some cases school sweatshirts are actually worn instead of blazers or jumpers and in some schools they are simply part of the PE kit (a very important part when playing outdoor sports in the chilly winter months!).
SWI offers a variety of school sweaters to suit every taste and style, from classic cuts to more modern design. Perhaps the most popular style of sweatshirt with young people today is that with a hood, in which the Sprint Hooded Sweat is a great choice. This sweatshirt features cosy back-brushed fleece to keep you warm while playing winter sports, as well as a kangaroo pouch and a lined hood with a pull cord.
If hoods aren't your thing then there is always the Racer Sweat – a class cut sweatshirt with a round crew neck and contrast piping for a sporty feel. The elastane around the neck, waist and wrist cuffs ensures a snug, comfortable fit, whilst also helping to keep in warmth.
Some sports players like to wear sweatshirts with zips, as this makes it easy to quickly take them on and off and run on to the pitch! The Estra Hooded Sweatshirt has a zip running all the way down the front, whereas the Icon Sweatshirt has a half zip at the neck.
Alternatively, the classic Crew Neck Sweater and V-Neck Sweatshirt are ideal school sweatshirts for wearing around school rather on the sports field. These are both available in a variety of colours.
