New York, NY (PRWEB) August 14, 2006 –
Back-to-school season is quickly approaching and leading apparel brands such as IZOD are making sure that students are heading back to class in high style with top quality school uniforms in a vast array of sizes and selections. According to a recent study, nearly 25% of the nation’s schools have a uniform and dress code policy in place specifying particular colors and styles.1 This 9% increase from 2004 is a direct result of the increasing number of public schools and districts following the trend of private and parochial institutions in requiring uniforms or Approved School Wear for their students.
In keeping with its reputation of offering great value and high quality, IZOD has stepped up to the challenge by providing Approved School Wear that is stylish, comfortable and easy to care for. New from IZOD this season are fashionable and comfortable johnny-collar cotton/spandex polo shirts for girls available in an assortment of stylish colors and sizes. IZOD is also making available for the first time, stain resistant flat-front capris with two front pork-chop style pockets and two back flap pockets. Capris are available in khaki and navy and in an assortment of sizes to fit almost every need.
JCPenney and IZOD offer top quality, great value and tremendous convenience for parents this fall with uniforms that are easy-care, durable, and stain- and wrinkle-resistant.
