Back to school time for me is all about the “first day of school” outfit. While my daughter and I bought her pink striped dress and matching socks weeks ago, my sons have taken longer to find that perfect outfit that signals, “I don’t really care what I’m wearing, but yes I know it’s cool.” Even though it’s been decades since I returned to school on the day after Labour Day, I’ll pull out something new to wear that day, too.
My husband is a different story. Shopping for clothes falls somewhere between root canal and flu shots on his list of things he likes to do. I can tell him that something is the latest fashion and he’ll roll his eyes. I can tell him that everyone’s wearing it and he’ll dig in his heels. However, this season I’ve got a new trick up my sleeve.
I’ve told him that his new shirt features innovation and a guarantee. There’s nothing he likes more than the thought of some kind of science going into the design of his clothes, and a money back guarantee if it doesn’t live up to its promise? Golden for my budget conscious better half!
Mark’s Men’s 50 WASH Polo is designed to last, wash after wash. The garment is pre-shrunk, pill resistant and fade resistant. Here’s the line that really impressed my husband; it’s made of a “tubular construction with no side seams to prevent the shirt from twisting and losing its shape.”
I look at it and see a nice looking polo that has stayed navy blue after numerous washes (yawn), but he looks at as a scientific masterpiece, and a challenge…with a guarantee to last 50 washes, he’s keen to keep track and see if it lives up to this promise.
Mark’s Men’s 50 WASH Polo retails for just $39.99, and they also have a 50 WASH Classic Fit T-shirt for $16.99. Find them at Mark’s stores across the country.
