Simon Jersey to suit Team GB once again
Thursday 9 February, 2017
Simon Jersey has announced that they have once again been chosen to supply the formalwear for Team GB for the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games.
The company will supply the winter athletes with contemporary formalwear from their suiting range, which will be worn to events during and after the PyeongChang 2018 Games. Last year, the suiting provided to Team GB was worn at events such as the ambassador's reception ahead of Rio 2016 plus a visit to Buckingham Palace to commend the team's success.
To celebrate the announcement, Simon Jersey worked with indoor real snow slope, snozone, the UK training base for many of next year's skiing and snowboarding hopefuls, to see how the suiting range performed. Freestyle snowboard coach, Tom Wilburn, took to the slope to test the brand's Qualitas suiting range for durability in the snow. The garments include features such as a Telfon coating for water resistance and a responsive waistband for ease of movement.
James Saunders, Simon Jersey managing director said: "It's incredibly exciting to be part of Team GB's journey as they aim to continue their winning streak. Looking and feeling good is all part of creating a successful mindset and we're thrilled to continue as the team's formalwear supplier going into the Games. Dressing athletes who are all different shapes and sizes is a challenge, but one that we manage every day on behalf of all our clients. We're already in the process of refining what they'll be wearing this time next year ahead of what we hope will be a very successful PyeongChang 2018."
