The key to dressing for summer is to find pieces that not only look good — but also help you beat the heat.
Woven and natural fibre fabrics like linen, jersey and cotton that are ideal for high temperatures, there are poly-blend fabrics that have been treated to go the extra mile to keep you feeling and smelling fresh, like the Men's X-Temp Polo with FreshIQ from Hanes.

What is it?
At first glance, Hanes's polyester and cotton blend shirt looks like your typical go-to for spring and summer. The tailored mid-weight polo features three buttons and a structured collar features X-Temp technology to help regulate body temperature.
Hanes's X-Temp technology uses a moisture-wicking hydrofunctional polymer helps prevent over-heating. The soft wring-spun fabric is a 60/40 blend of cotton and polyester used in a majority of Hanes's activewear to blend performance with practical wear.
In addition to keeping you cool, these polos also feature FreshIQ Technology, which helps attack odour-causing bacteria that can put a damper in your day-to-day style.
Hanes's versatile polo is available in 10 different colours to help you build a fashionable and functional summer wardrobe.
