French Toast Active Polo

Short Sleeve Active Polo

With the huge popularity of leisurewear and comfortable athletic clothing, it seems like all of the major school uniform retailers carry an active version of the short sleeve polo shirt.  Today, lets take a look at the French Toast Active Polo.

This polo is made from 100% polyester interlock fabric. It is moisture-wicking and quick drying. The collar is knit and it has a 3 button placket. It is machine washable on cold and can be dried on low.  My family has several tops in this material and I simply hang them to dry.

The boys version of this polo is called the Sport polo.   The only noticeable difference is the buttons.  On the boys top they are described as chalk buttons while the girls buttons are pearlized. This top is also available in a boys long sleeve version.   Both the boys and the girls version. Are available in sizes from a 4 through a 14 in 3 colors; white, navy and light blue. They retail for $11.98.

Reviewers comment that these are great polos in colors because the color does not fade or stain.  My family always manages to get oily stains on their white polyester shirts which doesn't wash out easily in the washing machine.  I found tips online claiming that hand washing the stain with Dawn dish soap works well.  And when my daughter's white polyester soccer shirt got stained with mud splatters last Spring, I learned that rubbing alcohol works wonders on polyester.  I now keep a bottle in the laundry room.

At our elementary school, the kids have PE twice a week and they don't get to change clothes.  While a collared shirt isn't required on PE days, these tops make a smart looking option that works well for PE days or any day of the week.
