Quick-drying polo shirt

The Rapha Essential Polo is made from a cotton-polyester blend manufactured in Japan, for a quick-drying warm-weather shirt. Cool against the skin and soft to the touch, the polyester content in the fabric aids moisture-wicking and faster drying. A continuous side-body panel gives the shirt reduced underarm bulk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it Very well made, comfortable polo shirt that's nice enough to wear in the office. I'd love to see a broader colour range. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Polo for George McFly I bought 5 of these over the last six months, one for each day of the week, of course. The fit is amazing, fabric has not pilled at all and I like the pink touches on the buttons. If I have one complaint it is that these tend to shrink ever so slightly, even if you hang dry them, which I have done religiously. Off the rack, these are spot on for my size. After several washings, the neck is a few mm smaller than I would prefer. I do button all the way to the top on most days. I always wear a wool v-neck base layer with these as well and usually geta couple of wears out of one before washing. A classic polo even if the price is a little high.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic! I have found all of Rapha's polo's to fit me well with a standard size small and this was no exception. The fit is great and the style is top notch.

I generally like a medium with your past polos given the slim fit. I also wear medium Rapha jerseys. Does this change in material keep the legacy fit, or does it warrant a change in size?

Asked by: Danyofeeney
Hi, the new essential polo and t-shirt have a slightly more relaxed fit. The reason behind this is that cotton has less stretch than merino wool. We would still recommend you chose the same size. As always we do have a free 90 day returns policy if needed.

Is it a slim fit?

Asked by: Andrzej
Hi, we would recommend buying the same size as you do in our on the bike clothing. It is a moderately slim fit.
