When it comes to school uniforms, buying cheap items can often be seen to be the only way to save money but we know from experience that is not the case. Kids’ clothing can get a lot of wear and tear, so look for better quality items that will stand the test of time, rather than pieces that will disintegrate in a few months time. Clothes that need less washing, drying and ironing always last longer, and will save you valuable time and money!
A lot of companies are now producing items with easy care technology and with tougher materials to help them look good for longer. If you’re not sure where to start, look for clothing containing polycotton or synthetic materials which will drip dry. See if you can find non-iron shirts and anything with Teflon coating is a bonus - this will help repel spills and releases stains easily in the wash.
At Dorset Schoolwear we make sure all the uniform we source is of a high standard to stand the test of time. You can be assured that when you buy uniform from Dorset Schoolwear, any replacements needed soon after will be due to "grown out" rather than "worn out"... We can also advise in store how to choose uniform with enough room for growth, so we have covered all bases!
