Ashworth Golf 1270C Men’s Performance Wicking Piqué Polo Shirt is a 100% polyester performance piqué golf shirt with a three-button placket, self fabric collar and open-hem raglan sleeves which allow the wearer greater ease of movement. The iconic Golfman logo on the back neck associates the wearer with the well-known and highly respected retail brand, Ashworth.
Performance piqué fabric wicks moisture away from the skin, providing quick drying comfort and making it suitable for office and corporate casual wear without any hint of treated fabric. Unlike cotton shirts that absorb and hold perspiration leaving the shirt wet and heavy, performance polos pull moisture to the surface of the fabric where it quickly evaporates leaving the wearer cool, dry and comfortable. This performance piqué fabric also features an anti-microbial treatment which kills bacteria that the human body naturally secretes in perspiration. This increases the life of the garment and prevents odor build-up and residue that is commonly found on untreated garments.

About Golf Shirts
Polo shirts became so popular on golf courses; people started calling them golf shirts. Although the words "golf shirt" and "polo shirt" are used interchangeably, and the term "polo shirt" is more popular, some people prefer the term golf shirts.
Golf shirts offer the professionalism of a dress shirt and the comfort of a t-shirt. When customized with embroidery or an embroidered patch and given as gifts or giveaways, they are called promotional golf shirts. Some of the most recognized brands of golf shirts are: Ashworth, Nike, Adidas, Ping, Greg Norman, Tiger Woods, Izod and Arnold Palmer.
Golf Shirt Terms
Placket: The part of a shirt where it fastens together.
Raglan Sleeves: Sleeves set with a diagonal seam from the neck to the armpit.
Rib Knit: A textured knit with the appearance of vertical lines, is very elastic and retains "memory".
Cuffs: The bottom of the shirt sleeve is called the cuff. Polo shirts have self-fabric cuffs or rib knit cuffs.
Tape: In apparel terms, “tape” is a narrow, woven strip of fabric. Better quality polo shirts have a “fully taped neck” which means tape is sewn on the inside of the neck, covering the seam between the collar and the body. This helps to retain the structure of the shirt, and makes it more comfortable in addition to absorbing some perspiration.
Tape is also sewn along the inner side vents to help keep the shirt tucked in.
Side Seams: Some polo shirts are “body knit,” which means that the body is knitted as a tube, and does not have side seams. As a rule, polo shirts with side seams have a more fitted shape.
Side Vents: These are slits at the bottom of the side seams and are either taped along the hem or double-needled stitched. They are a fashion detail that aids the ease of movement and when taped on the outside of the shirt at the top of the vent, they help keep it tucked in.
Extended Tail: On some polo shirts, the back is longer than the front to help keep it tucked in.
Double Needle Stitched: Means that the seam or hem is stitched with a double row of needles resulting in two parallel rows of stitches. A double needle stitched hem or seam is stronger than a single, in addition to giving the shirt a more refined look.
Horn Tone Buttons: Imitation horn buttons.
Pearlized Buttons: Plastic buttons that appear to be made of pearl.
Mercerized: The process of treating cotton yarn or fabric by it is immersing it in a caustic soda solution and later neutralized in acid. This process causes a permanent swelling of the fiber, resulting in an increased sheen on the surface of the fabric, increasing it’s ability to absorb dyes and greater strength.
