Slimming, durable polo

GregMull - Jul 08, 2021

At first, I wasn’t too excited about the fabric, as it is a bit heavy and not as soft as my other dry-fit tennis shirts. I see wearing this shirt with jeans on a night out rather than to play tennis. I really love the black color; I got complements that it looked sliming. I tried a size medium and it felt snug, but not uncomfortable, as I moved around. I am confident when I lose a few pounds it will be a perfect fit.

Very nice lightweight Polo shirt! Easy to dress up or down.

This is another excellent item of clothing from Nike! I was very excited to give this collared golf shirt to my husband. He was impressed as soon as he saw it. When he tried it on, the very first feature he noticed is what he calls air vents for the arm pits! There are 2 small holes under each arm. I am not sure of the purpose, but if it helps with air flow and ventilation here in Texas, that can only be a good thing! The fit is true to size, although my husband commented it seemed like a slim fit cut. We double checked the tag, and our observation was correct. This shirt is indeed cut a bit closer to the body, but it it not too tight. I definitely recommend sticking to your usual size. The Dri-Fit material on this Nike polo is not like other Dri-Fit fabrics that I have felt before. It is not clingy and does not have that athletic shirts "sheen". It almost feels like a very light-weight textured cotton to the touch on the outside. The inside is very smooth and it feels nice and cooling against the skin. It is the perfect polo for looking sharp and dressy, yet still comfortable with the feel of an athletic performance fabric. This looks great with shorts or jeans and is perfect for casual wear and even to wear with a dressy outfit. It's a very nice polo and would make a great gift!

Durable and comfortable

samg - Jul 07, 2021

This shirt is my new favorite. The fabric is thick and durable while still incredibly breathable. I ordered the size I usually get and found it to be the correct size but wish it was a bit more slim fit, even after it shrank in the wash. My favorite part of this shirt is that it is a dressier shirt while still remaining comfortable. One thing I would've like to see different is that it was more branded. There is no typical Nike brand swoosh or lettering on the shirt except for one made with thread on the back, which is the same color as the shirt itself. I wish it stood out a bit more maybe if they used a different color. I did however like the small orange label detail near the button loops as well as the orange threading on the top button. While there was some shrinking in the wash, this shirt is still my favorite both due to its comfort and style.
