*Review* School Uniform from Tu at Sainsburys

With the back to school rush almost upon us, most parents will be thinking of school uniform and equipment that is needed…. not to mention the expense!

Tu at Sainsburys have trialled their uniforms up to five times the industry standards and this is what they say about their uniform:

1: Product that can perform up to 5 times the industry standard on key tests

Woven Trousers, Skirts and Pinafores have been proven to perform up to five times the industry standards. Boys’ trousers are finished with a resin on the centre fold to ensure creases hold throughout washing and wearing. Pleats on woven skirts and pinafores are heat set and retain a sharp look no matter how many hours of classes and assemblies kids sit through, ensuring uniforms stay looking their best without endless ironing. Sainsbury’s is the only retailer to offer this feature as standard so whatever the price point the neat look is guaranteed.

2: Unbeatable quality and durability

For quality that lasts term after term, the Easy Care White Polo Shirts have been washed up to 100 times and the unique cotton rich fabric is proven to retain its shape after washing, guaranteeing polo shirts which will last term after term. Buttons on all garments have been pull-tested with up to twice the industry standard weight to ensure that they are stronger for longer.

3: Colours that last

The Perfect Colour / Easy Care range has been made using a specialist fabric technology to ensure colour retention. TU at Sainsbury’s Perfect Colour range uses technologically advanced dye to improve colour retention on polo shirts and sweatshirts, guaranteeing colour that is brighter for longer.

4: Product that stays newer for longer

The Bionic Polo shirt is a new development unique to the TU Back to School range. Made of 100% pure cotton, these polo shirts are easy care, stain resistant, water repellent and breathable. In addition the new Advanced Technology Cardigan, a cotton rich blend knitwear, benefits from reduced bobbling and shrinkage and will retain its colour for longer.

5: Easy for little ones

Making life simpler for your little ones, TU at Sainsbury’s has also introduced additional easy dressing elements for 2013, including increased zip lengths on pinafores and no zips or buttons on trousers or skirts up to 5 years, encouraging children to learn to dress themselves. Elasticated cuffs on long sleeved shirts have also been introduced to aid dressing. Selected styles are now available from age 2 years, TU at Sainsbury’s is the first supermarket retailer to introduce back to school clothing from this age.

We received a selection of items from Sainsburys to try including their boys trousers, girls pinafore plus their navy jumper and cardigan.

All items we’re well made and I put them through their paces in the washing machine too. All of them washed and tried well with the creases in the trousers and pinafore holding without the need for ironing.

I find that the uniforms from Tu are possibly the best on the market and last year brought all of Kayleigh & Ethan’s pre-school uniform from there.

The best bit about Tu at Sainsburys uniform though is the price! The TU Back to School range is available in stores now in sizes ranging from 2-16 years. Two uniforms start from as little as £13.50, this includes a 2 pack of sweatshirts (from £4), a 2 pack of skirts/trousers (from £6) and a 3 pack of polo shirts (from £3.50)
