Polo Shirts – Why we recommend Papini

We’re going to get this out of the way right at the start……… The Papini polo shirts range isn’t the cheapest one out there. If price is what’s really important to you we’d recommend something else!

So, Why do we recommend polo shirts from the Papini range? The answers simple, in our opinion they offer the best balance between quality & the price that we can offer.

Fabric: With a 210 gsm fabric the Papini polo shirt is at the top end of fabric weights used throughout our industry, Many of the “famous” workwear & promotional brands have, over the years, dropped back to a 180 gsm fabric, It doesn’t sound like much, 30 grammes but it’s 15% in actual terms

Papini use a 65/35 Polycotton mix which gives a hard wearing reliability to your garments. The fabric is treated for anti pilling (balling) & is produced with spirality control to hold it’s shape.

The twin decorative stripes look appealing on the rib knit cuffs, but come in to their own on the collar where they strengthen the fabric meaning when you’ve washed your polo shirt a dozen times you don’t end up with a wet lettuce leaf effect of a curled collar.

The fabric is reactive dyed to preserve colour wash after wash. If you look after your polo shirt and follow the washing instructions you’ll get a great look & a long life for your money.

Now for us, the good part…….. Papini use a really tight pique knit on their fabric, It’s great for embroidery as it gives a really stable base to put your logo on to. In addition they have a resin coat to provide extra stabilisation (it washes out during your first wash cycle) so even an intricate logo design will hold it’s shape.
