Expanding The Core of School Sportswear with iGEN
August 5, 2021 | All News | New Styles | Schoolwear |

For many years now the original 4-piece iGen P.E and Games kits collection (includes a unisex polo & short and a female polo & skort) has formed the nucleus for countless school’s games and sports kits. The high-quality craftsmanship and the performance fabric utilised within their modern functional designs have kept customers coming back each year. Leading iGen to become a true staple of many school sportswear resellers across the UK.

The school sportswear landscape has shifted

However more recently, pupils haven’t been spending time in confined spaces such as changing rooms. They are now encouraged to wear sports clothing for larger portions of the days when they have P.E lessons or extra-curricula sport. So where once slipping on a polo and shorts for a lesson would suffice. Now they have other factors to consider such as wearing P.E kit in other classes. As well as travelling to and from school.

These changes have led to a rise in the demand for comfort and warmth from the school sportswear offerings. Creating a surge in requests for garments such as midlayers, pants and leggings. To address this new school sports landscape, our core 4-piece has now become a 7-piece. All of which demonstrate the quality you would expect from Chadwick styles. Yet all iGen stock products retain the important “entry-level” price point to appeal to mainstream schools. View iGEN Range

7 Piece Igen Range

A brand new iGen Midlayer and a Tapered Pant have been recently introduced to join the range for the start of this coming school year. Plus, we’ve included one of our most popular styles, the Academy Legging.

The New iGEN ¼ Zip Midlayer

Available in 8 stock iGen colour combinations, this new ¼ Zip ticks all the boxes. A contemporary design made from a quality semi dull 230gsm flat knit polyester. With a warm brushed reverse, which is a durable hard-wearing easy-care fabric. The construction, fit and detailing are of the highest quality, yet this midlayer sits at an affordable price point.

The Academy Legging Joins iGEN

To complete the new look iGen Games Kit range we are rebranding our popular Academy legging to become part of the iGen range. The style (838) will remain the same but will now be known as our Style 838 iGen legging.  This style is a staple with a lot of our Schoolwear customers and fits the iGen positioning of “superior quality at an entry-level price point”.

This functional stretch legging is made with a soft touch 240gsm polyester spandex knit fabric that is warm, quick-drying and durable. Its wide elasticated waistband offers a more secure fit and the reduction in panelled seams provides ample opportunity for embellishment. View iGEN Legging
