Good, Better or Best Polos?

Planning to order embroidered polos? Overwhelmed by the number of style choices? One way to eliminate some styles is to decide if you want "good", "better" or "best" quality polo shirts.

Most polo styles fall into one of three groups: budget-friendly, moderately-priced and top quality. If you have frequent staff turnover then budget-friendly styles may be your best option. If your staff is consistent then picking a better quality style may give you a more professional image and be a better investment. If you represent a cutting-edge company, then a fashion-forward designer polo may give you the edgy look you want.
