New innovative lightweight fabric leads the way in 2017
In recent years, a little product range named Stedman Stars has evolved into an extensive collection of over 35 fashionable T-shirts and polo shirts, perfectly suited to the promotional market. Stedman Stars, also known as Stedman’s fashion line, has developed printable T-shirts made of ultra-modern fabrics such as melange blends, slub yarn and ‘full feeder’ elastane compositions for extra high-wearing comfort. Each fabric has its own unique properties and each style has carefully thought-out characteristics adapted to the promotional market’s demands.
“Always on the hunt for the most innovative fabrics, we have found a new gem in the world of ringspun cotton that we couldn’t resist,” says Stedman. “Our extra fine, combed ringspun cotton Finest Cotton- T styles are destined to be a front runner for the hottest T-shirt trend of the year!”
The extra fine, combed cotton is very soft and light at only 105 gsm. The relaxed yet flattering shape is complemented with a fashionable, rolled self-fabric collar. Hem and sleeve hems are double stitched and women will appreciate the modern, wide neck drop. The fine structure gives these T-shirts a premium look and high elasticity. “A must-have trend that completes any casual outfit for more versatility,” comments Stedman.
The Finest Cotton-Ts for men (ST9100) and women (ST9110) are available in sizes S-XL and come in five colours: crimson red, marina blue, slate grey, black opal and white.

Henley T-shirts have been around for a while and these collarless shirts with buttons can easily be worn to formal or casual occasions. “We have taken this popular style for men and given it a twist with our ringspun cotton made of modern slub yarn,” explains the brand. “Slub yarn contains a high count of slubs, adding texture to the fabric while retaining an overall smooth surface. The combination of fashionable, ringspun cotton with a texturised look and three metal buttons on a wide placket results in two gorgeous henley styles with short and long sleeves.” The rib collar, front yoke and zigzag stitching on seams contribute to a modern must-have in 2017.
The Shawn Henley T-shirt (ST9430) and Shawn Long Sleeve Henley T-shirt (ST9460) for men come in slate grey, black opal and white, and are available in sizes S-2XL at 140 gsm.
“Two henleys are good – three henleys are great!” says Stedman. The Luke Long Sleeve Henley T-shirt (ST9860) is made from the brand’s popular blended melange cotton (160 gsm 60% ringspun combed cotton/40% polyester), which is super soft to the touch due to the smooth polyester fibres. Aside from three metal buttons, a stitched half-moon and the decor neck tape, the standout feature for this new style is the white double layer on collar, sleeves and hem, which gives it a sophisticated look. It is available in sizes S-2XL, in colours charcoal heather and navy heather.
Stedman is also adding a long sleeve style to its Stars range: the Morgan Long Sleeve (ST9040) is a style extension to the bestseller Morgan Crew Neck. Made of durable, 160 gsm 100% ringspun cotton, these styles sport a fitted shape and a fashionable collar with rib binding. Due to their smooth surface, they offer a perfect base for all kinds of textile decorations.
Morgan Long Sleeve is available in sizes S-XL and comes in marina blue, slate grey, black opal and white.
A fashion-forward collection demands a contemporary colour palette. The Stedman Stars range offers a total of 40 colours for 2017, with Shawn and Sharon Slub Crew Neck for men and women now also available in the brand’s soft pastel shades of powder blue and powder grey. The Clive and Claire Crew Neck, made from a super soft cotton/elastane blend, are now also available in powder blue and powder grey, as well as rich Bordeaux. The bestsellers Ben Crew Neck, Morgan Crew Neck and Megan Crew Neck welcome cream white and pumpkin to their portfolio. After high demand, the Megan Crew Neck will now also include grey heather.
