Don't worry! We're here to tell you everything you need to know about buying the perfect polo t-shirt in Bangladesh.

What are the features you need to look out for?

With all the options in the market, it's easy to get lost. So we're highlighting the features you need to consider before buying the polo t-shirt:

Does it fit you?

The first thing to check is if the t-shirt fits you right. So it's ideal to try it before you buy.

Traditionally regular fit has dominated in the last century. You'll find it popular back in the 80s and 90s. But times have changed. In a traditional fit, the back hem is longer than the front hem. So it helps to tuck it in. It's also quite baggy and loose. This fit works great if you want a more slimming effect.

The t-shirt should not be too tight or too lose.

The modern fit can also be named the slim fit. That's proved to be quite popular in over the last 10-15 years. This fitting hugs your body but doesn't feel too tight at the same time. This avoids the t-shirt's being overly baggy or oversized, and appears to be flattering. The seam of the shoulders must not cross the shoulder blade. You got the perfect fit if the t-shirt fabric stretches up to 2 inches on either side of the body.

.

Are the sleeves okay?

This is a part where many of us make a common mistake. Too short sleeves ruin the delicacy of the polo t-shirts whereas too long sleeves will make it unappealing. The perfect length is if it's 2/3rd of the bicep. As for tightness, it's okay if you can easily insert two fingers in. The right sleeve length and fit can help accentuate your arms especially for those who work out!

What's the proper length?

The length of the t-shirt can determine how good your outfit looks. The traditional t-shirts have the back hem longer than the front for tucking in easily. But this has seen declining popularity.

The proper length is if the hem of the t-shirt extends up to half of the crotch area. Both the hems should be equal in length. This length will allow you to tuck the t-shirt in when necessary. It also gives the option of leaving it untucked for a casual look.

Are you checking the fabric?

The key quality of the polo t-shirt comes down to the type of fabric used to make it. Since knowing about the fabric is crucial, let's have an illustrative look at the most popular ones:

  • Polyester: The cheapest polo t-shirts are usually made from polyesters, unless they are designed for sportswear. These sacrifice quality for the price.

    This fabric is usually shiny and tough. It doesn't wrinkle or shrink upon washing. But it also tends to overheat and can make you feel sweaty. It's uncomfortable to wear in the humid weather of Bangladesh. The color of the t-shirt also tends to become dull even in light usage. We do not recommend this.

  • Blended (cotton with polyester): Cotton-blended fabric is popular in the middle range price these days. The polyester adds longevity and robustness to the fabric whereas the cotton makes it soft. The quality is not as great as full cotton fabric. The colors don't wash away. But the downsides are that it may cause sweating which makes the experience uncomfortable.

    We recommend this in autumn or spring. But the blended fabric is not the best choice in the summer season.

  • Linen: Linen is now a trending fabric in the market. With its fast-growing industry, Linen has also made its mark in polo t-shirts. The fabric holes of linen have a three-dimensional structure. So the wrinkles look sophisticated. But the fabric is also very coarse and harsh. This may make it uncomfortable sometimes, so finding good quality linen is important. .

  • Silk: Silk polo t-shirt is expensive because of the price of the fabric. It's shiny and stylish, and is often used in designer runway brands. The nature of the fabric makes it breathable. But pure silk can have its cons as it loses its color in heat. This makes wearing it unfavorable in the summer months of Bangladesh.

  • Pure cotton: Pure cotton should be your go-to fabric. Its sweat-absorbent traits make it breathable and suitable in the tropical climate of Bangladesh. It is also very comfortable to wear. Good quality cotton fabric colors don't fade away. The luster of the fabric is also elegant and lovable. Go for this if you want to spend a worth while in quality. We recommend cotton for the Bangladeshi weather.

The Knit Matters too

There are two widely used methods of knitting in Polo t-shirts: Piqué Knit and Jersey Knit.

  • Piqué knit: Piqué knit is the more classic knit of the two. It has a 3D waffle-like structure, thereby makes it breathable. However, the piqué knit is more heavy and can be expensive. Piqué knit is also more stretchable.

  • Jersey knit: The jersey knit has a smooth surface. It also accentuates the color of the polo t-shirt. However, there are no microscopic loops. This results in a lower amount of pores and thus makes the t-shirt less breathable. It can also be less expensive than that of piqué knit.

We recommend piqué knit. But if you want a more shiny-smooth quality, you should go for the jersey knit.
