Posted by Sharprint Associated Press on Tue, Jul, 16, 2013 @ 09:07 AM

Commonly worn by tennis and golf players, the polo shirt can be portrayed synonymous with that of a sporty chic look. So when considering the purchase of embroidered polo shirts for an organization, think about who will be wearing the shirt, what environment it will be worn in, and the brand-identity you’re trying to establish.  

1. Fabric Type  

While the first polo shirts ever made were crafted out of cotton, today's versions offer more fabric options. These include cotton and polyester blends, as well as those made of 100 percent polyester.

Polyester versions are celebrated for their moisture-wicking ability and longevity, especially after being washed over and over again.
