President of SanMar Corp., Jeremy Lott and his team unveil the new District Flex Tee collection after 18 months of research and development.

President of SanMar Corp., Jeremy Lott and his team of developers recently released the company’s new District Flex Tee collection. The release has been 18 months in the making, and the SanMar team is more than pleased with the result.

“This is one of our favorite releases yet,” President Jeremy Lott says. “We spent 18 months researching fabrics and developing this shirt, which is unlike any other on the market.”

SanMar Corp., President Jeremy Lott explains that this shirt features some of the comfort elements consumers love in athletic wear; yet, customers won’t look like they’re headed to the gym when wearing it. The goal was to create a shirt that includes a touch of the stretch many consumers desire without sacrificing its aesthetic appeal.

“The District Flex Tee is one you can wear everywhere,” Jeremy Lott says. “We’ve developed this shirt, so its classy enough to be worn to work, but so comfortable you’ll want to wear it around the house too.”

“We wanted to bring a CVC shirt with just a touch of stretch to the market,” Jeremy Lott adds. “Many times, shirts made from CVC fabrics are considered athletic wear. We’ve developed a shirt that maintains the comfort of CVC fabrication without giving the appearance that you’re headed to the gym.”

Jeremy Lott describes that the new District Flex Tee collection from SanMar is bound to be every customer’s go-to t-shirt. It’s a casual collection that can be dressed up or down without sacrificing comfort and breathability.

President Jeremy Lott and the SanMar Corp., team are continuously researching and developing new ways to create top-quality, stylish apparel that lasts. The company’s more than 48 years of experience have made them a leader in clothing design, fabrication, and more.

“We’re always at the cutting-edge of design, and the District Flex Tee collection is just another example of that,” Jeremy Lott finishes. “We’re eager for our customers to experience the comfort and style we’ve been developing with this collection over the last year and a half.”

Jeremy Lott and SanMar Corp. launch District Re-Tee

SanMar president Jeremy Lott and his team launch 100 percent recycled, never re-dyed District Re-Tee product line.


Made from 100 percent recycled fabric and never re-dyed, SanMar Corp.’s all-new District Re-Tee line promises to make doing good for the planet feel as good on the outside as it does on the inside. Eliminating the water-intensive dyeing process and the need to produce new raw materials, Jeremy Lott, Seattle area executive of SanMar, explains more about the product. 


SanMar Corp.’s District Re-Tee products are made from reclaimed material that otherwise could end up in a landfill, according to Jeremy Lott, Mercer Island resident and Seattle-based SanMar owner and president. “The color comes from the original cotton scraps and polyester yarn, so there’s no need to re-dye it,” he explains. 


According to Lott, SanMar Corp.’s District Re-Tee fabric is made from 60 percent recycled cotton and 40 percent recycled polyester. 


Jeremy Lott, Seattle area president of SanMar, lives with his family in nearby Mercer Island. The business is headquartered on Black Nugget Road in Issaquah, Washington. Home to Jeremy Lott, Mercer Island is just 12 miles away.


The latest in a wide range of goods for promotional product supplier SanMar Corp., District Re-Tee products are designed to reduce waste and save resources, according to Lott. “The Re-Tee eliminates the water-intensive dyeing process,” he explains, “as well as the need to produce new raw materials.” 


District Re-Tee claims to be the equivalent of skipping over six weeks of showers, shaving 5.87 miles off your daily commute, or going computer-less for a full workday. “Now doing good for the planet feels as good on the outside,” adds Lott, wrapping up, “as it does on the inside.”
