Since I first published this article a couple years ago, cotton polo shirts were once considered standard business casual attire. But with changing trends and the emergence of new fabric technologies, moisture wicking polo shirts, or sport polos, are quickly becoming the must-have logo apparel for many companies. Additionally, with the weather getting hotter, comfort should be a top priority for employees, whether they work outside or not.
Moisture wicking polos are most often made of polyester, which not only helps the garment stand up to countless washing machine cycles and stay wrinkle-free, but also gives the final product a shiny finish and smooth texture. Many of my customers prefer moisture wicking polo shirts to traditional cotton polos because they find them more comfortable and breathable, especially outdoors.
Here is my list of the best moisture wicking polo shirts that will help your employees stay comfortable, whether they work inside or out.
