PE kit comes of age with a corporate look

Falcon Sportswear Ltd are members of The Schoolwear Association and have been trading for nearly 40 years supplying sportswear to schools and the market. With a wealth of experience in this field, MIKE BRUMFITT offers his insight into some of the trends that they have witnessed.


chool PE wear has come a long way since the days of white polo shirts and cardboard-like shorts. Just as the advent of the blazer embroidered with the school crest and the tie displaying the colours of the school emphasises the schoolʼs heritage, helping to give pupils an identity during school time and act as ambassadors of the school outside of school time, the humble school PE kit has now followed in the same footsteps. Rugby, football, netball and all other sports kits are now produced in the latest performance fabrics, such as moisture wicking stretch polyester, thermal polyester and microfibre fleece materials. These fabrics can be combined with both traditional and modern designs decorated with the school crest highlighting the identity of the school, helping to showcase the sporting talent

and ambitions that a school has to offer. Recent trends have seen a resurgence of the school ʻhouseʼ system.

Innovative manufacturing techniques and computer assisted design software have enabled retailers to work with the schools to create a bespoke look incorporating the colours specific to the house to which a pupil belongs.

The design of the garment can be tailor-made to the schoolʼs requirements, with the added advantages that embroidery and printing have to offer. From printed names and numbers on polo shirts and shorts, to the school initials heat printed on to the sleeve of a base layer, companies are now finding new ways to bring out the ʻcorporateʼ look of a school. As technology evolves, so does garment design, production and decoration.

Who knows what a typical PE kit will look like in 2021!
