Long sleeve shirts: smart, sporty, and comfortable
adidas has channelled items of kit associated with rugby and polo to create a range of smart-casual long sleeve shirts. Some parts of the adidas long sleeve shirts range are the fruit of collaborations between adidas and sports stars or artists.
Cool and stylish with a sporty edge
Most of the adidas long sleeve shirts are made of a soft polyester/cotton mix with a straight up and down silhouette that gives the clever colour blocking maximum impact. There is a discreet Trefoil to confirm the adidas provenance, a crisp polo collar with three buttons hidden in a flat placket, and ribbed cuffs on the long sleeves. A nod to the East Coast preppy vibe is evident but the on-trend colourways mean the shirt is current and fresh. Other models are made of an indulgent 100% cotton jersey which gives a slightly softer drape to the profile of the shirt without losing the authentic sports influence. Some adidas long sleeve shirts are available in plain black which makes a dramatic style statement, others are more playful despite their sombre colours with contrasting raglan sleeves, the 3-Stripes livery recreated as wide diagonal bands and a cheeky sewn-in collar peeking out from a v-neck detail.
Competition grade performance
adidas long sleeve shirts have also taken the polo shirt and reimagined it for golfers by using a high-tech, thermal fabric to maintain a steady body temperature out on the links. The fabric is made of recycled polyester which fits in with adidas’s commitment to reducing waste and resource depletion by recycling wherever possible, plus an admix of elastane to give a bit of stretch. The golfers’ long sleeve shirt is slightly looser than the smart-casual polo shirt to allow room for movement. It is extremely elegant in an understated way with graded horizontal lines in a darker shade and a discreet adidas mountain logo on the chest, also in a darker shade of the same base colour.
