But we live in an age when technology leads to the introduction of "new and improved" versions of products despite the fact classic versions have successfully endured for many years with few changes. The polo shirt is no exception and there have been new updated materials incorporated in their manufacturing.
In one version of the polo shirt, the styling and fabric is advertised as being made out of "playdry" material. This is another performance fabric which is intended to add luxury, coolness, and moisture wicking qualities. Performance fabrics were originally created primarily for athletes and other sports enthusiasts who work up a good sweat. The moisture wicking fabric in polo shirts draws the moisture away from the body which then evaporates quickly. This keeps the body cooler and drier even when the athlete is under physical duress.
Of course, there are also luxury versions intended for sports enthusiasts who may not sweat heavily, but want to look stylish such as golfers. These shirts claim to have curl free collars and come in trendy colors.
In the end though, the polo shirt can continue to hold its own just as it has for so many years. The high performance polo shirts may be appealing, but the classic polo styling is the enduring quality of this particular shirt. For those who wear a polo shirt to work everyday, the comfort and coolness of this garment is already deeply appreciated.(c)Image by Noel Abejo,www.sxc.hu/
