Comfortable and stylish
on 13 November 2013
I was supplied with this long sleeve polo shirt for review.
This long sleeve polo shirt is made by Hanes a US brand from the same stable as Playtex etc. and over 80% of US homes are said to have a Hanes product. I like this shirt a lot as it seems well made with a neat ribbed collar and three simulated horn buttons. The shirt is made from 100% cotton pique. I like the feel of the cloth, it is light but fine, and good quality. I've had polo shirts from other big manufacturers that feel thicker but the cloth isn't as good a quality and they haven't kept their shape. The fit of this shirt is designed to be a "comfort fit" - it isn't designed to be a slim fit (just as well for me!) and, in terms of sizing I'd order your usual polo shirt size. The sleeves have ribbed cuffs, the body has side seams plus the shoulders haves reinforced seams - I think these three factors all contribute to keeping the shape of the garment. The stitching and detailing are good - I personally am delighted that the shirt doesn't sport a logo. One of my friends remarked that the shirt had a look of "understated quality" about it and asked me where I'd bought it and how much it had cost - they were surprised at the value for money.
I have now washed this shirt several times, although you can wash it at up to 40 degrees I use a 30 degree setting and "colour detergent" - it has washed well with no discernible discolouration and maintains its shape nicely when dried on a hanger plus using this method you avoid ironing it.
This Hanes long sleeved polo shirt has quickly become one of my favourites and so much so that I've ordered another one already. I really like this product - recommended.
