Vantage adds 100-plus styles, screenprinting capabilities – Brief Article

AVENEL, N.J. – Vantage, the nation’s largest embroider/manufacturer of corporate apparel, in December introduced more than 100 new products with the release of its 2004 catalog.

Vantage has expanded its extensive in-stock collection with more value-priced basics as well as new luxury styles in silk, cashmere and suede. Also new for 2004, Vantage now offers full-service decoration with the addition of screenprinting, making the Avenel, N.J.-based supplier one of the industry’s largest and most complete sources for product and decoration.

New men’s styles for 2004 include additions to Vantage’s popular Vantek moisture management collection of hi-tech apparel. With the increasing demand for performance fabrics, Vantage has also introduced a new stretch pique fabric in silhouettes for both men and women. The trend away from extreme casual back toward more refined dressing and an increase in luxury fabrics is also evident throughout the collection. Peruvian Pima cotton and silk are featured in polos as well as wovens and long-sleeve knits. A cashmere/silk blend mock neck sweater and suede car coat are also offered at surprisingly affordable price points.

More women’s options have also been added to the collection in Complements styles that are designed to coordinate with a men’s silhouette. New styles feature more feminine detailing and include new knit shirts, wovens and jackets. The women’s size scale has also been extended from XS-3XL sizing on all women’s garments to offer an even wider spectrum of styles and sizes.

Another addition for 2004 is a new youth polo in Vantage’s Velocity Collection of value-priced basics. This polo is available in S-XL to fit youth sizes 6-20 in six fashion colors. Also new to the Velocity collection are new polos for men, a women’s solid polo, a solid windshirt and new headwear styles.
