Quality fabrics since 1975

Best selling blues

Top Five Blues

Posted on: 30th Jan, 2014

Blue has always been the most popular of colours but 2013 had five bestselling blues…

 

5) RYDAL NAVY 

Our wool and cotton country checked shirting fabrics  are always popular, however the plain brushed wool and cotton shirt fabric shirtings are very much in vogue at the

moment. Our Rydal quality has been in the collection for quite some years now, however recently, the fashion colours

of black and navy have been added to sit with the more traditional, cream,pink and sky blue. Rydal has a warm handle

and is slightly brushed on one side for an extra soft feel. It can be machine washed (wash as wool) and ironed hot.

 

4) GRANGE BG BLUE FABRIC

Gingham checked fabrics have also been strong throughout 2013 and remain strong so far this year.  Sold more for casual

shirts traditionally, gingham’s have appeared in the work shirt wardrobe of many, teaming up with knitted ties to complete

the look.

 

3) GRANGE EE FORCE BLUE

Another classic, end on end fabric is a staple fabric. It has been in the collection since 1975 and is as popular now as it ever

was. A plain with a difference, end on end gives the appearance of a solid fabric, yet up close, you see the characteristic

“grain”. End on end has always been a popular corporate wear item but more recently it has been used in casual

designs as an upscaled chambray

 

2) ROYAL OXFORD BLUE

Textured fabrics have sold well. Royal oxford fabric is but one of the many qualities that we offer that have a surface effect

enhancing the texture of the fabric. Royal oxford is a panama weave similar to the Gargrave and Oxford fabrics and like them

is heavier than our poplins. Royal oxford is primarily used for shirts for the office however, outside of shirt making,

it is popular in the equestrian arena for stocks amongst other things.

 

1) MALHAM 100 SKY

Another fabric enhanced by a surface effect, Malham 100 with its diamond effect has become a bestseller during

2013. Another “plain with a difference”, the blue dye used in the malham 100 is the same dye used in the also

popular monarch plain sky. The diamond reflects the light at a different rate than the body of the cloth and so is

very distinctive.
