Top 3 Trends for Custom Printed T-Shirts in 2015 by Coed Monkey
2015 is well underway and here at Coed Monkey, we've already been able to see some trends emerging.  After a great 2014 with over 65% growth in sales of Custom Printed T-Shirts/Apparel for clients around the country, we feel like we've been able to get a pretty good sense of what the market wants, and as the market has demanded a few new styles, we want to be the first to bring them to you and let you in on the "industry scoop" to help you plan for your next order, considering the 2015 Custom Printed T-Shirts Trends!  

Here are the 3 biggest things we're noticing about shirts in 2015:

1. The emphasis on the Neckline/Collar.

This is for both men and women... while this might not be for 99% of the population, but A LOT of people are gravitating to a larger/wider neckline.  Whether that is a V-Neck over the traditional crewneck, or the new, modern scoop/swoop neck for both guys and girls.  Here are a few products that we've really seen take "market lead" in this... the links will take you to our distributor's sites, but we can print on any and every one of these shirts... just let us know what you'd like:

2. Slim-Fitting & Thinner Hoodies

A lot of people have been moving away from thicker hooded sweatshirts and moving towards a thinner, t-shirt material-based hoodie, for 2 reasons... First, it is much cheaper than the traditional thick hoodies and second, they are a lot of softer, slim-fitting and can be worn for more of the year.  Here are 2 of our favorites:

Custom Next Level 50/25/25 Unisex Hoodie:
Custom Alternative Eco Pullover Hoodie:
3. Crewneck Sweatshirts

A lot of people are ditching the hood and going with a more traditional (throwback style) crewneck sweatshirt.  Popularized by many rap icons, the crewneck has become widely popular over the last 2 years and just over the past year, the wholesale market has taken notice and offered a few amazing options that can be customized with your logo:
