I have worn these Polos for daily wear for about five years. The most recent purchases show a distinct drop in quality and fit, and the most recent Professional Polo I purchased is now unwearable, due to collar tattering along the edge, and severe fading, whereas other polos, some almost 4 years old are still fine. Once a fine product, cheapened and no longer worthty of purchase.
I've wore 2 of this shirts more than 1.5 years almost constantly (as a work clothing and in trips).
The fabric is still as new, but I've got traces of sweat (under the armpits and on the chest mostly) which i failed to remove by washing etc.
This is the only sad thing.
All other is great.
This is one of the most durable, long lasting polo shirts I have ever owned. I use it for almost everything. From business casual dress in the office to oilfield work in the field. It is durable and very comfortable.
This shirt is a nice addition to an everyday shirt. It's durable,easy to care for and doesn't fade. It's a great host for an embroidered uniform patch.
I have yet to receive my polo shirt. The first one I received did not have any of the embroidery that I had requested. That was over a month ago and I have yet to even hear back with a shipping date of my new corrected shirt.
At this time I can not recommend 5.11 products to anyone. The gear can't help if it doesn't get out to those who need it.
Best polo for work I've found, hands down. Rugged and will last and last. Own many different colors. Over 15 in closet.
Black comes a tad faded and fades even faster. I have eight that are functional, but needs re-dying.
Recommend, even black but be aware.
I wear this shirt every day in different colors short sleeve and long sleeve , it is comfortable and looks good, I am also looking to have my company logo put on them because they wear so well. I am a professional firearms trainer.
These shirts are great. I like the length and the comfort they provide me, though they can become a little hot if I wear these out in the heat. Thankfully that's where the peformance polos come in handy.
My biggest gripe about these shirts, is that they quickly develop holes on either side of the seam on the underside of the sleeves, near the hem(not the armpit). These seem to be caused by loose threads, and they detract from the professional appearance.
I am currently in the process of thinking about ordering a whole new set of these shirts, because nearly every single one I own has developed these holes, and quickly.
I use the shirt for both business casual with a sport jacket or the range.
Runs very large. Even though its 100% cotton, it does not shrink.
