To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The material is soft and easy care 100% cotton with a more regular than slim fit. I bought the large and the sizing is accurate, although it feels too big until the first wash and tumble dry when it shrinks to the correct fit, which is to be expected for a cotton top. They’re the same style and quality as the IZOD polos I used to buy previously but at a lower price and these are more regularly in stock of colour/size combinations. They also match perfectly with the Amazon chinos I bought.
Good quality cotton & great range of colours in these polo shirts. Cotton ideal for Australian climatic conditions. Shirts are in English & Australian sizes. Will order more polo shirts in near future.
These shirts are ok. I bought 3 of varying patterns and colours. Seem to be good quality. Good stitching and the buttons are on tight. They wash well and (unfortunately) don't shrink in the wash.
The one big flaw is that they are simply huge. This is not helped by the confusing mess that is supplied by amazon in size selection. They are way way beyond the given size. They are probably two sizes too big on me (nominally I am a XXL). It's just about wearable. I am in the middle of losing a bit of weight so I'll be lucky to see them last till the end of the summer before they swamp me.
I bought the XXL version of this shirt over 6 months ago. I like the shirt very much and decided to order the XL version. It seemed fine when it arrived but on washing the fabric coarseness was evident.
So I pulled out my old XXL and compared it to my prior purchase. The XXL fabric is smoother, more pliable, breathable, and more comfortable. The fabric on this XL is courser, stiff and more uncomfortable. I ordered a blue XL and it was made of the same course fabric.
Obviously, to me, it seems Amazon.ca has re-sourced and is making these shirts of a significantly different fabric and, in my opinion, less comfortable one. I cannot recommend this Amazon Essentials polo shirt any longer. It is substandard as far as I am concerned.
I understand that constant sourcing of new and cheaper materials are needed to control pricing but I think the switch in materials for these shirts goes too far down the scale to warrant purchasing them.
I don't like this very much. The advice was to buy a size down, which I did, and it's still arguably a bit on the large side. The collar hangs unattractively too, somehow. It's like a supermarket garment. Not very stylish or fitted. And the colour is way off what the photo shows. It's much more green in real life. Adequate but disappointing.
As others have commented, these come up BIG. Ordered Medium. Laid my Fruit of the Loom Medium polo flat on top and there was more than an inch showing all round - so that's at least 4 inches more in circumference by my maths. Also 2 or 3 inches longer. So, maybe a good lockdown buy, or try a size smaller, or keep for when you're having a fat day.
