The polo shirt originated in the United States as a tennis shirt, actually. It was invented as a better alternative to the long-sleeved, button-front hot monsters first worn on the courts in the late 19th century. Our ~Carhartt K311 WHT Mens White Pique Knit Short Sleeve Polo will give you the same kind of comfort and freedom-of-movement those early court pounders enjoyed, with a few more modern perks.
It's made of 6.7 ounce, 100% ring spun cotton for a hefty feel, but the cotton pique knit means this baby's got breathability. That's important when you're slaving away in a hot warehouse or other unpleasantly toasty environment. The classic three button front assures that this shirt stays true to it's lofty origins as a classy alternative to the layabout t-shirt. The rib knit collar and banded sleeves means it holds its shape and stays in place. The side-seamed construction minimizes twisting, even if your job doesn't require you to hit a ball while atop a galloping pony hurdling you through a pack of angry opponents. Other comfort features include a square bottom with side vents for a comfortable fit. The manufacturer's label, sewn on the left seam, assures quality construction you've come to expect from Carhartt.
So the next time you suit up for your workday, slip into the comfort and style of the Carhartt Mens White Pique Knit Short Sleeve Polo. You'll feel like one of the Kings for whom the shirt's namesake sport was invented.
