Lightweight polo shirts with breathable or cooling properties are great for working in hot conditions or outdoors in summer if the temperature is high.
Heavyweight polo shirts are a great choice for working in colder conditions or outdoors if the temperature is low.
Cotton, polyester or polyester/cotton mix are the most popular choice of polo shirt materials as they are comfortable, hardwearing and durable.
We also supply specialist polo shirts that use different materials to add extra properties like high visibility, moisture wicking, flame retardant, anti-pique, odour reduction, soft finish, UV protection etc
Cotton - Cotton performs well in most conditions. It has good moisture wicking abilities, breathability and durability. Cotton also feels nice against your skin with its natural, soft and more luxurious feel.
Polyester - Fabric technology has made a huge difference to the performance of polyester over recent years.
The improved texture is now comfortable to wear but it is the additional properties that make it a perfect workwear fabric. Polyester has amazing strength and durability, it doesn’t wrinkle or fade and it won’t shrink. Polyester doesn’t retain moisture, its moisture wicking and cooling properties keep your body cool and draw moisture away from the body.
Polyester/Cotton Blend - Blended polo shirts provide the feel and benefit of natural cotton with the added strength, durability and advanced properties of a man-made fibre.
The benefit of each fabric is detailed above. A common combination is 50/50 or 65/35 poly-cotton mix.
Blended Polo shirts are a good choice for outdoor workers or any trade that requires the combined attributes of both Polyester and Cotton.
Polo Shirt Types
Pique Polo - Pique polo shirts generally have a looser knit weave and are the more traditional choice for businesses as they are associated with both quality and durability. The looser weave allows the air to circulate giving the fabric increased breathability.
Pique polo shirts can be supplied with a printed logo but are better suited for an embroidered logo if you are personalising your work shirt.
Jersey Polo - Jersey polo shirts have a smoother texture and are flatter than a pique shirt. With a similar feel to a t-shirt, it tends to have more elasticity and a lighter feel which makes it a popular choice for sport or active clothing. Stretch or slim fit polo shirts are more likely to be Jersey due to these properties.
Jersey polo shirts can be supplied with an embroidered logo but are better suited for printing of your logo if you are customising your work shirt.
