Parts Of A Golf Shirt
When discussing how golf shirts are meant to fit it is useful to know the terminology, Most people know about cuffs and collars, but yokes and plackets are less familiar terms.
The collar of the shirt is the folded piece of fabric at the neckline. It is often pointed at the tips, and a few stylish golf shirts feature button-down collar points that create a neater line. Most golf courses have dress regulations and require the player to wear a collared golf shirt.

Moving down the polo, the yoke is the back panel that goes across the shoulders. The shirt's yoke is integral to its fit through the back. The armholes are the inset areas where the sleeves are attached, in some golf shirts these are cut slightly larger for ease of movement. The side seams start at the base of the armholes and move down to the bottom hem of the shirt on each side. 

In front, most golf shirts have a placket, a vertical length of fabric into which the button-holes are stitched. Placket-fronted shirts have a fold on either side of the button row. Sleeve length is usually shorter if it a slim fit golf shirt and longer in regular fit shirts. Sleeve cuffs can be tight or relaxed fit, some of our dressier golf shirts feature tighter cuffs around the arms.

Fit Styles of Men's Golf Shirts
Although manufacturers may come up with their own terminology for golf shirt sizing, most of them adhere to the same concept of offering two shirt cuts to fit the three most common body types. 
Before looking at the fit these shirts provide, it is essential to look at the shapes they are designed to fit. Doctors and fitness experts often refer to three somatotypes, or body shapes, that describe most men's bodies; these categories are also helpful when deciding how to dress each body type.

 

Body Type

Description

Recommended Fit

Ectomorph - Slim

The ectomorphic body type tends to be lean and narrow. Men with this shape typically have narrower shoulders and chests.

Slim fit tailored fit

Mesomorph - Muscular

The broad-shouldered, narrow-hipped inverted wedge shape is that of a mesomorph. Men with this physique put on muscle easily and maintain a trim waist.

Regular fit, performance fit, tailored fit, slim fit standard fit

Endomorph - Rounded

The endomorphic body type has more rounded contours and tends to gain weight in the abdomen. When slim, endomorphs retain a stocky overall build and a more cylindrical torso rather than the mesomorph's wedge shape.

Golf Shirt Tech

Our golf shirts feature more than of the following technologies;

Generally, golf shirts will stretch 2 ways, across the grain. 4 Way will stretch across and lengthways resulting in better freedom of movement. Don't feel restricted through your golf swing no matter how many layers you're wearing.

Moisture management or moisture wicking tech fabric is designed to draw sweat & perspiration from the skin to the exterior of the fabric. It is much easier for the moisture to evaporate on the surface of the fabric than when it's between the shirt and the skin.

Very important in golf shirts for the Australian golfer. Fabrics can be made from many types of fibers, including cotton, wool, and polyester. Most fibers naturally absorb some UV radiation, and some have elastic threads that pull the fibers tightly together, reducing the spaces between the holes. Some clothing will have UPF rating up to 50+

Some of our golf shirts now feature Anti-Odor technologies. These golf shirts contain silver nanoparticals shrunk down to sizes one billionth of a meter thin and embedded in the fabric to prevent bacteria that is produced when you sweat.

The most basic property that the golf clothing must have is breathability. Here, breathability denotes the ability of the garments to transfer the moist vapour through the pore of garments. Breathable golf shirts ensure rapid moisture vapour transmission through garments, thus making any physically strenuous activity comfortable.
