Let us Bring Out the Southern Girl in You!

What is a Southern Girl? There are many definitions, but here are the top 10 ways to help identify a true Southern Girl:
1) Simple, yet elegant.
2) Loves jeans and cowboy boots.
3) Frequents places that serve sweet tea.
4) Listens to mellow music.
5) Full of Southern hospitality.
6) Generous, sweet, and always polite.
7) Y’all is the only pronoun they need.
8) When it comes to hair – bigger is better.
9) Any sentence started with “Bless your heart…” could be good or bad.
10) They live by Reese Witherspoon’s words “If it doesn’t move, monogram it!”

How can we help you show off the Southern Girl in you? Whether it be through monograms for your clothes, hats, shoes, or even your vehicles – we’ve done it all. How about a nice custom designed shirt with your favorite Southern saying in sparkle?

Fall Coats

Fashionable Coats

Winter doesn’t officially start until December 21st, but as we woke up the last couple of mornings and felt the crisp air, it was a clear reminder of how fast it’s approaching – it’s time to start thinking about coats. Although we are still able to enjoy the warm afternoons, the evenings and mornings are already dropping into the freezing temperature ranges. Don’t fret though, with our fast turnaround time, you can still get your stylish cold weather gear in plenty of time!

We have many varieties of coats to choose from – whether outside brings a mild chill or the extreme cold. You can also make your choice based on style and functionality. The ideal winter coat is made to keep you warm, easy to layer under, easy to move in, not too bulky and, ideally, something that you don’t feel like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Stay Puft while wearing it. Stay trendy with a double-breasted, mid-length, classic coat or add style and functionality with one of our parkas. Already have all of the basics? Then update your coat closet with classic fall colors like red, deep purple, and dark blues.

Here are a few tips on the top Coat Trends:
3-in-1 Coat – For versatility with the changing temperatures, go for the 3-in-1 coat that gives you the ability to add or remove a special liner and jacket shell. Layer them all together or wear them as individual pieces as the weather dictates.
High Collar – If you don’t like to wear scarves, a high-collar coat is the one for you! It’s an absolute life saver during the bitter winter months.
Hooded Wool Coat – Hooded coats are always great for extra protection against the cold. Pick a nice wool coat in a trendy color to protect yourself against the harshest cold temperatures.
Pea Coats – Slightly shorter and boxier than most coats, they are great for everyday wear and can be worn to work and social functions seamlessly and fashionably.
Trench Coats – This classic coat never goes out of style. Traditionally longer and belted, this coat can be worn to school, work, parties, etc. Single or double-breasted, it’s functional and fashionable.
Winter Parkas – Super warm and sporty, the parka is always a great choice. To keep a modern look, pick one that has a cinched waist to avoid the puffed up look. As the climate changes, so can the need…get one with a detachable hood or fur trim to keep you warm in the harshest temperatures and be removed when it gets warmer.

Regardless of the coat you choose, add your company logo, personalize it with a monogram, or just show off your unique style! Check out all of our varieties or come by Signet today to choose the right look for you! Not ready for the winter coat just yet? You can also choose from an assortment of fleeces, vests, and lightweight jackets. Whatever the need – we will find the one that works for you.

Placket

A placket is the opening at the neck of a garment. Specifically with polo’s, the term placket refers to the double layers of fabric bands that surround and reinforce fasteners such as buttons, snaps, or zippers. It was originally designed to allow clothing to be put on or removed easily, but are now also being used as a design element.

Men’s polo plackets typically feature 2 or 3 buttons and women’s can have as many as 5 or 6 buttons and run halfway down the shirt to create a distinctive feminine look. The women’s polo can also feature a Johnny collar which is a placket style with an open, short V-neck that does not have fasteners.

Today’s placket trends are largely influenced by the expansion of fabric blends. With the move to polyester and spandex or Lycra blends, the shirts offer more stretch and flexibility that makes them more comfortable and drape better. These fabrics also allow for more vibrant colors that don’t fade as much or as fast as 100% cotton shirts.

Next time you are searching for the perfect polo, make sure to pay close attention to the placket and the various options you can choose from. Visit our website or contact one of your friendly Signet reps today to help you pick out yours!

Wouldn’t a Fit Comparison be a useful bit of information?Fit Comparison

Signet carries several brands such as Anvil, Gildan, Bella + Canvas, District, Fruit of the Loom, Jerzees, LAT and Whispering Pines sportswear. Each brand has different styles of fit. Therefore, we thought it would be helpful to offer a fit comparison.

Depending on your body type, Signet has several brands that carry 2-3 types of cut or fit in their tee shirts. In ladies’ styles we offer Ladies Classic Fit (fuller cut) versus a Juniors’ fit (form fitting). Both LAT and Whispering Pine offer a classic cut tee that is relaxed and softly shaped. They also offer a modern cut or retail/sports fit – which is more closely contoured to the body and emphasizes its’ lines.

Refer to some of the images to the right or ask our Signet sales team if you need help with sizing up the right fit and style for you.
