Don’t Sweat It: Performance Fabrics are on the Job


Wicking away sweat is just the beginning of what “smart garments” do to promote cleanliness, comfort and protection.

Apparel that is also functional is in hot demand. These expertly merged fabrics and features juggle style, fit and feel while tackling specific tasks:

  • Blocking ultraviolet rays
  • Wicking moisture
  • Resisting dirt, oil, flames, wind, heat, odour and bacteria
  • Maintaining temperature
  • Preventing wrinkles, snags or pilling
  • Promoting safety, with features such as reflective strips

Performance fabrics aren’t just for activewear but also for workwear — from factory lines to corporate offices. Check out just a few different ways our clothes perform:

Port Authority® SuperPro™ Oxford (S658 & L658): This Sturdy Button-Down Cleans Up

Stains happen, but they don’t have to stick. This smart shirt’s “secret sauce” is technology that not only repels stains — it releases them. Those in the food service industry will especially appreciate how this wrinkle-resistant shirt stays stain-free and looking sharp all day long. Bonus: it’s soft, too!

Today’s active lifestyles demand we get endurance, versatility and style out of our clothing, from dawn till dusk. Performance fabrics work hard, play harder and clean up afterward.


CornerStone® Select Snag-Proof Polos (CS412 & CS413): Don't Get Caught Up on the Little Things

Nothing can ruin a shirt or look faster than having a snag. When a garment is snag resistant, the fabric has been tested to hold-up to every day wear, like catching it on surfaces, jewelry or keycard lanyards. When a garment is snag-proof, it was developed to withstand the demands of the hospitality and service industries. The standard is much higher. You can take a grill brush and run it along the product, and still, no snags!
