The soul of a polo is in its collar. So, it's a shame when the collar of a polo is curled beyond repair. Here are some quick tips to help you maintain the collars on your polos so that the collars on your polos can stay sharp and structured for longer.
4 steps on how to keep the collars on your polos looking sharp and structured:
- Flip your polo inside out and pop the collar before washing.
- Air dry your polo instead of throwing it in the dryer
- After it’s been washed and dried, lightly spray a small amount of liquid laundry starch1 on the collar of your polo before ironing.
- For a longer term solution you can invest in a polo with high-quality heavy collar construction made to be curl resistant. Here are some options from Albatross Toronto: www.albatrosstoronto.com
