Like most children I don’t get very excited about school uniform, I don’t mind wearing it but I don’t actually think about it that much. Considering that I spend most weekdays wearing either my uniform or a sports kit I probably should think about it a bit more…
It appears- as if by magic- clean and ironed on hangers ready for the week ahead most of the time and then other times it’s a last minute panic scrabbling around to get a jumper in the tumble dryer before we need to leave, but despite that the only time I really think about my uniform is when it is uncomfortable.
When I was asked to review Trutex school uniform I didn’t realise there was so many things you can think about with a school uniform. First off we had to choose which size I needed, which wasn’t too difficult because they have lots of sizing information on their website and then we had to decide exactly what we were going to order. I decided to go with the black trousers because even if it’s warm at this time of year there are still some days we have to wear trousers, such as for performances etc. I also thought the trousers would be a good idea because I could see if they were able to stand up to me running around and playing football in them then they would have to be good! I also picked a pack of two white shirts and a grey V-neck jumper.
The clothes arrived quickly and we opened them up to have a look before popping they through on a quick wash. The sizes came up really well- we had gone for the larger side of my size in the hope that they lasted after the Summer holidays and they were very good to what my Mum expected.
The trousers at first try were very comfortable and the shirt wasn’t at all scratchy. I was pleased because the collar wasn’t too tight and it didn’t irritate me at all having it done up. The jumper is my favourite though because it is so very soft- it’s really nice and fleecy inside- warm but not too hot.
When I wore the clothes to school I found them comfortable to wear all day and was able to run about in the trousers and didn’t get too hot in the jumper.
My Mum says that the clothes have all now been washed several times and they have kept their shape well, there is no fading on the jumper and they still feel as nice to wear. She has also tumble dried them too and they have not shrunk at all- apparently this is a very important with school uniform because it means they can be sorted out in a hurry on difficult days! I like that the jumper is still really soft even after several washers. Mum thinks they are really good quality and says she will be buying Trutex products for us all in the future.
Whilst I still don’t think about school uniform a great deal I would recommend everything I tried in the Trutex range as being comfortable and practical and would suggest that when the time comes to take your children shopping for new uniform you don’t drag them round loads of different shops making them try on tons of different things but instead check out Trutex and find your nearest school uniform stockist
