Mine looks whiter too. More a soft white than ecru. I picked up 4. One poor polo accidentally found it's way to the dryer and will now fit a very short pudgy man who shops at goodwill. Amazing how much it shrank in the length.Has anyone had experience with the recent off white polos losing their ecru color? Worn once, washed with mild detergent once, line dried, and it basically lost all of the ecru color to the point where it is nearly just white now. I couldn’t even find it in my closet because the color matched my white ones so much. I also have an unworn off white with the different collar and there is a glaring difference between the two now.
Between the odd cut/sizing and this, these polos are a very strange batch this year.
Cotton knits are much more apt to shrink than wovens. The fabric can be washed before cutting to reduce shrinkage to an extra 2 or 3%. I like when the shrinkage is out of the fabric before cutting and sewing in knits.
