Trutex School Uniform - Review

Years ago when I was at school I remember wearing a Trutex PE Kit. A white polo shirt and navy pleated mini skirt. I always remember it being hard wearing and instantly recognised the name when I was recently approached by Trutex to review their school uniform.
I learned pretty quickly that it does not pay to skimp on school uniform when looking for quality. I've tended to buy big monkeys uniform from supermarkets except when getting the logo'd stuff. It doesn't always pay though! Now I go for quality over saving money, as the items wash so much better, keep better and don't shrink. They don't wear at the knees so quickly either, a good thing with lively boys!
Using their online size guide I ordered dark grey slim leg trousers, a white short sleeved polo shirt and a bottle green round neck sweatshirt for big monkey from the Trutex website, hoping that size 7-8 would fit.
The unifrom arrived neatly folded, well packaged and quickly. The trousers although folded were already on a hanger. I have to say, even before big monkey had tried the uniform on, I was impressed by the quality. The trousers are much thicker than some of his other ones, the sweatshirt nice and thick with a lovely fleecy lining and the polo shirt looked to be made well and nice and long in the body.
Usually big monkey needs to wear trousers with the internal waist adjuster on as he is slim, however these do not have them. They have an elasticated back instead. I need not have worried about the fit as when he tried them on, they fit perfectly around the waist. Just a tiny bit too long but he'll soon grow.
Big monkey loves the sweatshirt as it is thicker and softer than his others. As soon as he put it on he said it was snuggly and that he was going to keep it on all day.
The polo shirt is a good size and fabulous quality. It's been washed with whites and still looks new. I tumble dried all the uniform and can confirm none of it has shrunk. It all needs very minimum ironing if any, that gets my vote! 
Anything not to like? Not at all, the whole set costs less than £30 and I feel it's fantastic quality. I would be happy to buy more Trutex uniform as it's made to last. Take a look for a list of Trutex school uniform stockists.

We were sent this uniform for the purpose of this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own and big monkeys where stated.
We're going on an adventure
