Trespass to design Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games uniforms

Trespass is supplying uniforms for Glasgow 2014 staff and volunteers

Outdoor clothing manufacturer Trespass will design and supply uniforms for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games workforce, it has been confirmed.

The firm will also provide outfits to be worn by the Games' army of 15,000 volunteers, and by those accompanying the Queen's Baton Relay.

The Glasgow-based company originated in 1938 as Jacobs and Turner Limited.

It is now managed by brothers Afzal and Akmal Khushi, who established the Trespass brand in 1984.

Trespass currently has 140 stores across the UK, with a further 40 due to open in the next 12 months.

Glasgow 2014 chief executive David Grevemberg said: "I am delighted to welcome such a well-known brand and great Glasgow success story into the Glasgow 2014 family of sponsors.

"We were hugely impressed not just with the quality of the designs that Trespass presented us with but with their passion and enthusiasm to be part of our journey."

Trespass co-founder Afzal Khushi added: "The year 2014 was always going to be special for us since we will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Trespass brand.

"We can think of no better way to mark this landmark date in our history than to help show the world what our home city has to offer."
