Trutex Stay Smart

Our experience supplying school uniforms for over 150 years has taught us that it’s crucial uniform garments can be washed over and over again without losing their smartness. To help parents and schools ensure that uniforms can be laundered without worry, we developed Trutex Stay Smart.


Trutex Stay Smart is garment technology which ensures your uniform will look smarter for longer, even after multiple wears and washes. It consists of a range of design and manufacturing features on core uniform products which get the most wear and tear: trousers, shirts and blouses. Trutex Stay Smart means these school clothes maintain their fresh, professional appearance without sacrificing on children’s comfort.

All of our boys’ trousers are constructed using Teflon Eco-Elite® stain resistant coating, which prevents stains and dirt taking hold so they look smart even after the rough and tumble of a school day. Plus, the trousers’ permanent creases hold their shape wash after wash, meaning less ironing for parents and a smarter appearance for longer.

For shirts and blouses, Trutex Stay Smart means having a collection of useful features that keep these hard-working uniform items looking good and feeling comfortable. Strengthened seams and collar reinforcers add structure and durability, while the high quality, non-iron fabric makes them easy to care for. Small details, like double buttoned cuffs, add to a student’s professional appearance while making the garment easy to adjust.

Every one of our school uniform garments under the Trutex Stay Smart label can still be machine washed and even cool tumble dried, so they’re simple to look after and stylish to wear. It’s all part of our commitment to supplying school uniforms that are made to last, making it a better choice for students and a better choice for schools.
