What does double mercerised cotton mean ? Well what it gives you is a cotton shirt that feels silky smooth, together with enhanced strength and luster, plus, a resistance to mildew and shrinkage. The only negitive is it is less absorbant than non mercerised cotton polo such as your basic pique weave cotton polo. So the point here is use your basic polo for general day wear, but when you want look good and feel good, go to a good restaurant choose double mercerised. Explore big men shirts if you need a change from Polo shirts. You can also buy mens chinos to go with your Polo shirts online.
