Fall Trends – Designer/Premium

Find below my first blog on the Designer/Premium Market for the Fall season.  Ideally I would like to provide users of SourceTheGlobe.com with a monthly bulletin by season… But since I don’t have a bulletin format established I will use this blog to highlight my thoughts about current trends from a manufacturing perspective.  I am excited about my first post on the Designer/Premium market, I hope you enjoy it as well.

In this blog I will cover what I see happening in Apparel Manufacturing, Fabric and Trims categories for the fall season for the designer/premium market.  You can register and check out http://www.SourceTheGlobe.com or you can send me a direct e-mail (jeffrey@sourcetheglobe.com) letting me know what you need.   There are over 1800 suppliers and 400 buyers registered on http://www.SourceTheGlobe.com and I personally have over 10,000 contacts that I have meet with over the last 21 years.

Below is a jacket that caught my eye seasons ago, and still has staying power.  This woven jacket can be made in canvas, twill, duck, or sail fabrics, with attention to detail (trim and decorative), wash (finish) and branding.

I have also included my favorite knit terry jacket from many years ago which stays with the Military theme.  It is pigment dyed, with poplin, terry, and rib fabrics.
