Finally, An Athletic Fit Polo Shirt

Finally, An Athletic Fit Polo Shirt

Finally, an athletic fit polo shirt meticulously tailored for men with an athletic build.

Ask any guy who is serious about his fitness or figure about the difficulty of finding great fitting clothing to fit their unique body types and they will tell you that it is no easy task. This challenging search is especially true for polos shirts (golf shirts), and it begs the question: why isn’t anyone making an athletic fit polo shirt? 

Here is the issue: big clothing brands set out to make the biggest profit possible. In doing so, they target the most profitable demographics, while neglecting other, less profitable demographics. This negligence particularly is true in the polo shirt market, with these big brands focusing on making polo shirts for males ages 55 – 75 years old. In this demographic, these guys are either retired or winding down their professional careers, meaning they’re hitting the golf course 3 -5 times a week.  If you have ever been to one of these country clubs, you will notice that these retired men are not typically in their prime physical shape. Therefore, it only makes sense that big brands would tailor polo shirts to fit this crowd – they are the largest buyer, and thus these brands have the greatest opportunity to generate money from these guys.

But fear no more, we at State & Liberty have the solution - an athletic fit polo shirt tailored to reward those that take care of their bodies. So where does this leave younger men who are in good physical shape and looking for a great fitting polo? It leaves them stuck, neglected by large brands who fail to produce a great-fitting polo. These younger males are trapped fitting into polos meant for their fathers and grandfathers. And let’s be honest, there’s nothing worse than seeing a younger, athletic guy wearing a nicely tailored pair of shorts and a baggy polo meant for their dad. Their head drowning in the enormous neck of the polo, the desert-flat collar, arm holes that look could fit a thigh, and a parachuted torso leaving no trace of a waistband. If you are a guy who has seen or even experienced this look, you know exactly what I am talking about. 

So what is an athletic fit polo shirt? It’s a polo that provides more room in the upper body, tailored arms that hug the bicep, and an incredibly tailored waist. Darts in the back torso of this athletic fit polo shirt pull the fabric in, eliminating billowing and any excess fabric when tucked in. Our polos are tailored to be snug fitting and best tailored to show off the “V” body shape. In addition, our polo shirts provide an extreme 4-way stretch so the athletic fit polo can be worn close-fitting while providing comfort for everyday movements (including a golf swing). Lastly, unlike the collar on your dad's polo (which looks like it has been trampled on) our polos have a very structured collar that stands tall and will keep its crisp look over time. 

If you are an everyday guy who takes care of his body, then this athletic fit polo shirt is perfect for you. Any male with a muscular upper body whose stomach doesn't hang over his waist will look outstanding in these polos. At the end of the day, clothing is just a canvas for the body, and with these athletic fit polos, you will be rewarded for taking care of your figure.

Ask any male athlete - pro, college, or the guy who is conscious about his fitness - about their experience buying dress shirts and you are guaranteed to receive a similar, frustrated response. Although the wording of this frustration may differ, the overall consensus is the same: off-the-rack dress shirts simply do not accommodate those with an athletic build.
