Alstyle Apparel & Activewear’s full-zip hooded fleece (style 1574) is made of 8.5-ounce, 80% ring-spun cotton/20% polyester. Offered in sizes S-3XL and nine colors, this preshrunk hoodie features set-in sleeves, a full fit and cover-seamed construction.
In an industry driven by comfort, it’s no surprise that fleecewear is in high demand year-round. And with more and more technical developments making this functional fabric even lighter and more performance-ready, fleece continues to further distance itself from the “winter-only” product classification.
With stylish options, fleecewear also maintains its status as a fashion staple. This year’s selection includes everything from contrast detailing to neon colors and heather looks.
Check out the downloadable PDF for a sampling of fleecewear styles from various industry suppliers. We also encourage you to read the Impressions Product Guide to Fleecewear, which will be distributed Sept. 3 via email.
