Tri-Blend Polos and Caps with Patches - More Hot Trends

  • Jan 30, 2019


If you are wanting to be on the cutting edge of promotional items here’s a couple more trends emerging (we covered some others in an earlier blog). 

There is now one supplier offering Tri-Blend polo shirts.  Tri-Blend material (50% cotton, 25% polyester and 25% rayon) has been around for several years now.  People like it because it is soft and comfortable.  

I’m not sure what took so long to sew a polo with it, but I do like these.  Besides the comfortable Tri-Blend material, I like how the men’s style has a self-fabric collar, which is less prone to rolling in heat and humidity.  Here’s images of the men’s and the ladies’ styles:

This same supplier also has a nice Tri-Blend ¼ zip pullover also.  Here’s the ladies’ style.

Trending up also is caps with patches, including both baseball caps and knit caps.  I do like the faux leather ones but that’s just a personal preference.  Here’s a couple examples:

Patch Cap


They will cost slightly more than embroidered or screened (hardly anyone does screened) caps, but I’d say are more likely to be worn since they are trendy.
