Summer is here, and you might be looking to refresh your wardrobe with some Represent pieces. You might know what you want to cop, but if you’re new to the brand you may not know where to start? I spoke with some of the Represent Content & Marketing team to get their current top picks of favourite garments from Represent.
The team are usually dressed head to toe in Represent. To make choosing their top picks easier, I asked them to base their selection off a number of factors; namely colour, fit, versatility and comfort. Here’s what they said:

Favourite Represent Piece: All Black Dual Loopback Hoodie or 247 Mission Pants in Black
“Both of these pieces are my favourites due to the fit and unique material used. With the dual loopback hoodie, I prefer the textured reversed cover-stitched seams to a traditional hoodie. As for the 247 Mission pants, I’ve never owned anything else that is 4 way stretch nylon before. The comfort they provide makes me never want to wear jeans ever again.”
Ricky Jennings - Ecommerce Manager
Favourite Represent Piece: 247 Pants in every colour
“The 247 Pant is exactly what we promised it would be and more! Since copping the Black pair on the first release about 18 months ago, it is the one item of clothing I can wear for any occasion and wear pretty much everyday. Whether it be in the Represent office, out and about or even sat in the pub, they make the era of wearing jeans for any occasion seem like a long distant memory.
Obviously with that being said, I have acquired the 247 Pant in every possible colour variation and every pair has shown virtually zero or little sign of wear - the comfort and quality really is off the charts for such a hybrid pant. One colour that I’m really into at the minute that doesn’t get as much of a mention than the staple Black and Grey are the Burnt Olive 247 Pants as the UK weather is starting to warm up and they are pairing nicely my lighter tone/Summer T-Shirts and Hoodies. These are definitely in my opinion the most underrated 247 Pant colour.
One final thing - when the weather outside is a little too hot to wear long pants then I just switch them out for the 247 Shorts.”
Sabah Younis - Influencer Marketing Manager
Favourite Represent Piece: Owners’ Club Hoodie in Black
“The Owners’ Club collection is by far my favourite, especially the Owners’ Club Hoodie in Black! I love how easy it is to style on a day-to-day basis with leggings for a casual look or with tailored pants for a more dressed up look. It’s easy to layer, fits great on women & has the perfect heavyweight fabric! The quality is one to note; despite several washes the colour doesn’t fade.”
Harrison Kirkness - Digital Marketing Exec
Favourite Represent Piece: Reptor Low in Flat White
“The Reptor Low in Flat White is the most versatile shoe I now own. Comfort and style-wise they go with everything to the extent that I haven’t worn many other sneakers since getting a pair of these. I first spotted the sample pair in the office when I came in for my job interview at Represent nearly a year ago and now I’ve just finally got my hands on them.”
Liam Shannon - Digital Performance Manager
“The Owners’ Club Coach Jacket is by far one of my favourite pieces. I wear it almost everyday as it’s perfect as a layering piece over a hoodie or t-shirt on warmer days. The design on the back is now iconic and always turns heads and the racing green colourway matches my favourite pant perfectly.
The 247 Pant is in my opinion one of the best products to have been released by Represent. They can be used for every occasion, it doesn’t matter what you are doing, whether you’re running or going out in town the 247 pant is perfect. The 4-way stretch debatably makes them the comfiest pants I own, and the elasticated hem means I can wear them differently with any fit! The burnt olive colour is the most slept on colour in my opinion and like I mentioned before it goes perfect with the coach jacket and any white trainers.
The Flat White Apex is my go to, day in day out. An all white trainer is a must all year round but especially for summer! The Apex is the perfect shape to go with shorts, jeans or the 247 pant in a more sporty look. One thing to note about the Apex is how comfy they are! The support around the tongue and the heel is incredible. You can wear them all day everyday and they’ll never rub.”
