Polo Shirts – The Right Fabric for You

Embroidered polo shirts and screen printed polo tees are a classic wardrobe. They never get obsolete in the clothing industry and they are great for dressing up or down.  If you are looking for the right polo shirt, you may want to know the different kinds of fabrics to choose from. Polo shirts can be made of cotton, jersey knit, pique and sports knit. 

Work polo shirts or company shirts are made of cotton, breathable fabric. Cotton polo shirts are generally the least expensive. Jersey knit polo shirts are a little lighter and easier to clean than cotton work shirts. They come anywhere from 1%-50% polyester blended with cotton. Cotton and jersey knit polo shirts are both great choices for breathability in warm weather especially in Australia. Pique embroidered polo shirts have a raised, corded pattern. Pique fabrics come in cotton, polyester and silk blends. Golf polo shirts are usually made of pique fabrics. Sport knit screen printed polo tees are the most lightweight polo shirts on the market. The sport knit fabric is made up mostly of nylon. Some incorporate a wicking technology that takes moisture from your skin and propels it to the outside of the shirt, keeping you cool and dry on hot days or during athletic activity.
