The best way to find a great performance polo is to take the competition out to the field and give them a test by golfing with them. Each of the polos have their own unique features from temperature control, silver tech to keep the shirts smelling great even through prolonged activity, and they all have a soft, modern fit. Which performance polo is the best agains the competition? I would have also liked to include Lululemon in this review but did not consider them in my original video planning. Any questions about the shirts please comment below!

This video is completely unsponsored, I am unboxing on camera because I love the brand and want to share better menswear with the world. Have a product you would like me to review? Comment below or email

The M-Flex Flatiron

From Rhone:
Premium activewear designed and built specifically for men. Give us a follow for fitness tips, recipes and product updates.
We are stepping up to the tee and taking aim at one of your golf game’s biggest problems. No, it’s not your consistent three putts we are concerned about, it’s your shirt. Our goal was to make a shirt driven by performance and effortless enough for a day on the links. We started with a super soft, nylon knit construction and added SilverTech threads to ensure ultimate comfort and premium performance. The silver threads inhibit bacteria growth from sweat, which will inevitably happen as you storm off the course in anger. Think about it: a golf shirt that looks good and perform better. Now if only we could fix that slice.
52% Polyamide
48% Polyester

From Mizzen and Main:
Keep it casual in the perfect polo made from the softest performance fabric imaginable.

MOISTURE WICKING Our unique fabric blend breathes better than cotton and keeps you cooler all day long.

FOUR-WAY STRETCH Performance fabric that’s made to move with you.

WRINKLE RESISTANT Our fabric naturally won’t crease or wrinkle like traditional dress shirts and doesn’t need to be ironed. They also don’t need that harsh chemical treatment like other “non-iron” shirts out there.

Mizzen+Main’s mission of disruption has made waves in the apparel industry, making us a fast favorite among professional athletes.

Proudly American Made

From Ministry of Supply:
A short-sleeved shirt fit for work and play.

Stay comfortable as you move between the indoors and outdoors in the same temperature-regulating knit blend we created for the Apollo dress shirt.
4-way stretch Apollo fabric
Resists sweat stains
Thermolaminated collar construction
57% polyester, 43% Outlast polyester
Made at Blue Wave in Fuzhou, China

Apollo’s breathable knit fabric wicks sweat at the source, eliminating unsightly stains all together. And with NASA-engineered Phase Change Material regulating body temperature, you’re never too hot or too cold.
4-way stretch fibers allow you to bend and twist in a slimmed-down silhouette without feeling restricted.


Austin Nelson says:

Maybe you can help me out. I need some performance polos for work. My biggest issue is that I am only 5’4″ tall. Do you have an opinion on which brand or other brands might have the shortest length of polos? I know I can always tailor them but I am trying not to do so if possible.

luke grantham says:

Best performance polo in my opinion is lululemon. About average price range for performance polos. Low the Lycra fabric and style. As a polo snob, I like those best.

Lincoln Meikle says:

wow you’ve gotten about 1000 new subscribers since the beginning of spring/summer! good work on putting out good content!!

Alex Riviere says:

Awesome video and channel! Found your channel while on a hunt for an unstructured blazers. I was wondering if you could suggest (or do a video reviewing) some high quality, good fitting t-shirts/henleys to wear under a blazer. Thanks and keep up the great content!

Michael Hude says:

Thanks for this video; it was one I had specifically requested. I really like the Mizzen polos, as well. But they have very few colors that I find attractive, and they are often sold out. They need to improve in this area.
On a further note, I was in on Mizzen early and even chatted online with their CEO when they were real small. He was just manning their online chat window one day.  
They seem to “arrived” now, and I have found that the customer service has waned. For instance, whenever I return anything, I have to request personally that they process the return after 3 weeks or so. This has happened three times, and it’s fatiguing. Bonobos and Rhone always process returns quickly.
Keep these videos coming! Great work!
The next frontier I’m pursuing is a quality Performance Blazer. I tried Mizzen’s and Ministry’s, but I wasn’t satisfied. Any thoughts? Have you found a good one?

Paul Daley says:

Maybe you can help me out, I work for Audi and have the option of getting a UA Performance Polo or Adidas Climalite, what would you prefer?

Conor Jackson says:

why cant i find polos on the ministry of supply website?

Thomas Pekarek says:

I normally wear a large in UA or Nike polos, would a large in ministry of supply or mack weldon be comparable?

Tolu obisesan says:

Your editing is very spot on. Well done my dude!
