Case study

Needhams Uniforms flying high with the RAF Typhoon Display Team

In 2021 we were approached by The RAF Typhoon display team. The request was to supply a functional but smart kit solution for the entire display team and would include polo shirts, softshell jackets and trousers.

The kit had to be of the highest quality and would need to include branding not only from the team but also carry the branding of the teams main corporate sponsors.

As with all our enquiries the first part of the process involves a conversation to really get to grips with the clients requirements so we can begin to offer a solution that meets or even exceeds their expectations. 


The next stage was to suggest optons for each of the items and then physical samples for the team to assess.

Once the items were agreed we began to talk about how best to brand them. The team required a high end look with the brief being to create impact but with a less is more approach. To this end we produced visuals to show the look of the branding on the garments.

Once the logo layout has been approved we keep a full record of the logo spec sheet for each item. This is to ensure ease of replecation to the same specification on repeat orders.

We produced a pre production sample for the client to sign off.

Once approved the order moved into production where each item was branded accordingly. 

Once embroidered the items are quality control checked before being packaged and sent to dispatch.

We think the team look very smart in the finished kit.

At the time of writing we are in our second year of supply to the RAF Typhoon Display Team and wish them all the best for the up coming display season.


"A very personable service. Andy and the team helped us with everything from garment selection to design and layout. We were on a very tight schedule to get our team kitted out before commencing the display season, but Needhams delivered!”
