TAYLOR MADE DESIGNS

TAYLOR MADE DESIGNS
TMD are seeing a demand for lighter, more durable products. Fabric needs to move with the pace of the crew and they don’t want to be hindered in anyway by their kit. Quick and easy venting and a focus on athleticism will be a key feature. The market and boats are moving faster than ever before and how products are designed and developed is reflecting this. Customers want to look good, garments to last longer and they are thinking more about their carbon footprint. The suppliers Gill said, “We test to destruction and we endeavour to give the product a good lifetime.” The marine sector is also getting more confident with colour. Even the most traditional customer is updating their look as the fashion and outdoor market is accessing more people online, and social media influencers play an increasing part in the buying decisions.
