Custom Corporate Apparel Specialists – Polos, Dress Shirts, Outwear and more!

Polyester hasn’t always had the best reputation. It has barely grown out of its image of being cheap and scratchy since polyester leisure suits were popular.

Until recently, polyester’s bad image was probably deserved. Shirts, pants, suits, and almost anything made of polyester had a rough texture and it trapped heat. That made it uncomfortable to wear, especially in the summer. Polyester’s main advantage is that it is lightweight and relatively cheap, which is why it was (and still is) a popular choice for employee uniforms, promotional shirts, and other mass-produced items.

Recently, though, polyester has taken a major turn. We can say with confidence that, along with cotton, polyester is one of the best choices for your company embroidered polo shirts, school uniforms, apparel for marketing, and more.
 

What’s Changed About Polyester?

In short: technology and better design have made polyester better!

New construction methods and treatment processes have improved polyester. It is now better quality and can wick moisture – a huge change from the disco days.

Plus, polyester-blend polo shirts, sportswear, and accessories are taking off in popularity right now because of their comfort, versatility, and style.
 

Advantages of Polyester and Cotton-Poly Blends

In apparel, polyester and cotton-polyester blends have distinct advantages.

These properties make polyester and poly-blends a great choice for everyday wear.

For logo polo shirts, many still prefer the look and feel of all-natural, pure cotton. However, don’t forget to consider polyester and polyester-cotton blends. It may suit your needs better than you think.
