3 Polo Shirt Myths Debunked

When you think of polo shirts, what words come to mind? Chances are "trendy" and "stylish" are not the first things that pop into your head. Polo shirts are incredibly popular, especially in the world of corporate branded apparel, but they sometimes get a bad rap. We're here to take a look at some of the myths and misconceptions that surround this versatile piece of apparel. There's tons of branding potential once you get rid of some outdated thinking. 

"If you've seen one polo, you've seen them all."

The Trimark polo design spectrum is HUGE. From corporate and refined to relaxed and casual there are tons of options. Let's take a look at what's trending. Popular choices include bold color blocks, subtle contrast in color of decoration and garment and a heathered pattern is the perfect canvas for something new and edgy for your brand.

Today's polos offer a wide variety of fabrics that all have different aesthetic and performance properties. Details in the collars and buttons are also not traditional. For example, by going with a mandarin collar or choosing a shirt with  snaps instead of buttons,  you're stepping away from business as usual and setting yourself up to get noticed.   

The Concord Polo (TM16611/TM96611) has a trendy heathered look.
"Women's polos are boxy and shapeless."


In branded apparel, one size definitely does not fit all. For a piece to be successful, it has to be worn. Which is why Trimark develops women's-only styles and offer women's versions for almost every polo they introduce to market. Designers take steps to make sure women's pieces fit well and flatter the figure. For example, the majority of the women's polos in this line have shaped seams and tapered waists for a flattering fit on all figures. Some of our women's polos also have more feminine design elements like mandarin collars and no-button plackets. The goal is to create a polo that people love to wear.

The women's version of the Antero Polo (TM96703/TM16703) has a no-button placket, shirttail hem and tapered waist.

"A branded, decorated polo is going to make me look like a billboard."

Long gone are the days of left chest branding as the only option for your brand. Our friends at Trimark have six high-quality imprint methods, ranging from bold to subtle- looks that gained rave reviews at our recent client event.

 Trimark polos have tons of standard imprint locations.

The Bottom Line

Trimark polos are branded apparel favorites for a reason. They are versatile, stylish garments with multiple options to provide the right look for your organization. Our team would be happy to host your team in the showroom or a pop up event at your location. Ready to get started?
