Leading UK adventure clothing brand WOMbat featured on prime time television this week as comedian and all round popular television personality Justin Lee Collins was seen sporting one of their cool hoodies on his new channel Five documentary ‘A song for Justin’.
Staff from WOMbat clothing were thrilled to see Justin wearing a classic WOMbat hoody on his new show, which aired on Wednesday night (19 May) and confirmed that he has been a fan of the Fairtrade clothing brand for a while now. He was spotted picking up several items on his last visit to the Bristol store, including the now A-list hoody in khaki.
Victoria Tingey from WOMbat said, “It’s fantastic to have a celebrity fan and it helps that he’s someone that everybody loves! Wearing one of our hoodies on his new show not only boosts the idea that Fairtrade can be fashionable but it has also boosted sales and inspired lots of people to visit the website.
“The hoody that Justin owns is already one of our best sellers so we’ve stocked up to make sure we can deal with the increase in demand. The whole team is excited to see whether Justin wears another WOMbat item on his show next week!”
The classic WOMbat hoody is made from 100% Fairtrade cotton and is priced at £45. The machine washable item is available in spring khaki (as worn by Justin) and true navy and is just one of a range of funky men’s hoodies available from WOMbat stores across the UK and online at www.wombatclothing.com
