AUR Golf Polo Review

My first experience with AUR Golf apparel was this Summer during my Cape Breton Golf Trip. My wife and I were scheduled for some formal dining at the Purple Thistle Dining Room at Keltic Lodge. I of course didn't pack any pants for my golf trip. A quick call down to the Pro Shop at Highlands Links they sent me a couple pairs of AUR Golf pants to try on. I always find it difficult to get pants that fit as I have a longer inseam being 6'5". One pair actually fit and I've since even worn them on the course. Very comfortable quality pants.

Received a AUR S-Café Striped Polo a few weeks ago and was excited to try it out for a review. It's part of  AUR's Aware Line. AUR is trying to be more environmentally friendly by using recycled products in there apparel. So instead of coffee grounds ending up in landfills they've made yarn from the coffee grounds and used it for their shirts.  AUR calls this S.Café.

Here's the Shirt Specs for the S-Café Striped Polo :
-Eco responsible fabric is a blend of 72% polyester, 25% S. Cafe and 3% rayon
-Coffee grinds are recycled to produce an environmentally friendly product
-Moisture wicking fabric keeps you dry
-UV protection and anti-microbial odor control
-Stripe polo has a solid self fabric collar and four-button placket
-AUR logo on the back yoke
-Short sleeves have an open hem
-Longer back hem with vented sides
-Regular Fit, Runs true to size

The Scoop
The blend of fabrics makes the S-Café Striped Polo quite comfortable. It's a very lightweight shirt and the large fit my frame perfectly (6'5" 208lbs) Most golf shirts these days are moisture wicking and AUR is no different. This shirt will keep you cool in the heat of the Summer. The fabric held up great after a few washes the shirt is just like new. It's kind of a bonus that it's environmentally friendly too. 

The polo that I reviewed was black and with the stripes was actually quite stylish. AUR has many more great colors as well. The S-Café Striped Polo actually has a "collar" which is a nice touch and makes the shirt stand out. The S-Café Striped Polo retails for about $55USD which is quite reasonable for this top notch shirt.
