NEW YORK, N.Y., Oct. 18, 2011 /New York Netwire/ — Soffe, a leading activewear apparel brand, introduces a new men’s line, XT46. Short for “Extreme Training since 1946,” the collection, inspired by the all-American hero, is in celebration of Soffe’s long history supporting the United States military.

Since 1946, Soffe has been meeting the needs of U.S. troops around the world. The Company currently manufactures training apparel for all branches of the U.S. military and supplies retail locations on military bases throughout the world. The XT46 collection brings this extensive expertise in Special Forces training products to the American consumer for the first time. The collection also highlights Soffe’s support of the Wounded Warrior Project by featuring this worthy cause on the XT46 apparel hangtags.

“XT46 is designed like the ultimate training apparel being used by the experts, our U.S. military, on a daily basis,” explains Ken Spires, President of M.J. Soffe. “Through XT46, Soffe takes the kind of performance gear used by our all-American heroes and makes it available for the first time to all Americans.”

Made with moisture management fabrics, XT46 optimizes the physical training experience with garments constructed to allow freedom of movement rather than restriction. Inspired by those in combat, Soffe incorporates accents of military camouflage in each garment of the XT46 collection.
