Sleeve lengths of boys' polo shirts
Boys' polos are available in several materials, including pique, cotton and polyester blends, polyester and spandex blends, and 100 percent cotton, among other choices. When purchasing boys' polo shirts, you have a choice of long-sleeve and short-sleeve options to suit the climate or event.
Long-sleeve polos feature the classic three-button closure or a modern two-button style, giving him the option to show off an undershirt worn below the polo when unbuttoned. Some long-sleeve styles also include a hidden placket to protect the buttons, helping keep them intact. Boys' polos with long sleeves are the perfect choice for cooler days to keep him warm or even to protect the arms when the sun is out but the temperatures are low.
Most short-sleeve polo shirts have flat collars and sleeve cuffs that keep their shape, even after frequent washings, providing longevity for the apparel. Many of these feature side slits for comfort and back tails to help him keep them tucked in throughout the day. Short sleeves are perfect for warm climates. Your son can even wear short-sleeved options as layering pieces on cooler days by wearing long-sleeve T-shirts under them.
