Polo Shirt

Our take on this classic, slim-fitting shirt is made from sustainably-sourced, ultra soft, light-weight jersey. The 100% cotton striped fabric was diverted from the landfill and comes from one of our Carolina Textile District partner factories. Overdyed for with a broken-in, casual look.  It’s proper with an edge.

Care: Machine wash cold, hang to dry.
