The Men’s Jersey Short Sleeve 5 Button Polo (3802) is a fashion-forward take on the men’s polo. It is made from a lightweight, super soft jersey fabric (55% combed, ringspun cotton/45% polyester; heather colours 52% combed, ringspun cotton/48% polyester), has a retail fit, tear-away labels and is available in various colourways.

Prestige Leisure highlights the B&C Ladies Safran Timeless Polo (BA390F). This classic fit polo with 1×1 rib collar and cuffs has a long three-button placket and what Prestige says is “superior ergonomic construction for extra comfort and femininity” along with “enhanced printability” thanks to the 180 gsm, 100% ringspun, combed cotton fine piqué. It comes in 12 colours and in sizes XS-2XL.

The Striped Polo from Epona is a soft polo available in dark denim and dark grey. Epona, which was founded in 2002, says is a pioneer in the sustainable fashion market, commenting: “We were one of the first companies to get the Fairtrade mark for cotton. Our production is monitored very closely, not only in the factories that produce our product, but right down to the Fairtrade farms where the cotton is grown.”

Mantis says its Superstar Polo Shirt (Men’s M78; women’s M79) is “the classic polo shirt – reinvented for the modern generation”. The men’s style has a wide two-button placket, while the women’s has a long, skinny placket with five neutral-coloured buttons.

The high-tech, lightweight AVS Polo from Snickers has been created from a 100% knitted polyester and features the Active Vaporize System (AVS), an advanced, breathable material that offers comfort while transporting moisture away from the skin, keeping the wearer dry. It is available in four colourways and comes in sizes XS-3XL.
