Imagine a team is looking for a new uniform for a large event. The team need to be cool and comfortable and yet, easily recognisable to any attendees. Furthermore, they want their uniform to be a commemorative item that they could happily wear after the event.
The team consider a full product range and finally choose embroidered polo shirts. Polo shirts are selected for corporate clothing by a large number proportion of companies buying corporate clothing- from golf clubs to bankers-and so why are they so universally appealing, and therefore a great teamwear option?
Polo’s seem to offer just the right level of ‘smart’ (a collar and a banded sleeve make a dark coloured polo shirt look quite traditional) whilst being comfortable. The popularity of polo shirts in fashion means that people are generally comfortable wearing them and they are not overly formal or intimidating to customers. To up the style stakes, polo shirts can come in traditional mesh (or piqué) or a softer cotton jersey material, called pima เสื้อโปโล.
Buying teamwear for larger teams when consistency is important can get tricky- formal shirts for men can be unflattering and boxy on female colleagues. Polo shirts offer a great unisex option for larger teams, as they are universally appealing and flatter everybody. Add to this that good corporate clothing suppliers may offer ‘feminine fit’ styles, styles with a touch of stretch for ease and options for petite or taller customers and every member of your team should have a well fitting polo shirt.
A huge consideration when buying workwear, is how well items will last. Bearing in mind that items might be worn for up to 40 hours a week (much more than you would wear any of your ‘out of office’ attire) the corporate clothing that you select needs to wear well, resisting creases and looking good day after day. More formal shirts can look tired by 5pm but a polo will still look fresh. On top of that, corporate clothing is likely to be washed much more frequently than regular items and so you need to know that it will resist shrinking, wrinkling, fading and pilling- all of which a good polo should do.
Finally, budget is often king and so when buying for large or smaller teams, there will no doubt be limitations on spend. Embroidered polo shirts often offer a teamwear solution that fits within even tight budgets, as it can be bulk ordered to suit all divisions of the business. Bear in mind though that not all polos are equal- and that a very cheap item might be a false economy. Balance quality versus cost to ensure you get the best item that you can for your money.
So- if an embroidered polo shirt is an obvious choice for corporate clothing what makes a good embroidered polo shirt stand out from the crowd? Well good pique polos are 100% combed cotton – they’re hefty enough to hold their shape whilst the combed cotton makes them soft to the touch. Pima polos should offer the softest double combed Peruvian cotton in a range of colours and sizes. A good supplier will offer feminine fit, petite and tall fits and sizes from XS-5XL.
A great quality polo shirts has finished seams and no curl collars so that wash after wash, they are still looking their best.
And finally, your embroidered logo should be of the highest quality, using the finest threads and with the best attention to detail – resulting in an embroidered polo shirt that’s fit for any event and for a long time afterwards. After all- if it’s going to carry your name, it has to be good!
