Columbia New Utilizer Polo Shirt for Men
Works for me
Medium fit me as I expected - very comfortable. Spent time in Asia and it wicked well. My only concern is possible snagging due to weave although I have not had this happen. I have most colors and all have same look and feel.

I have several of these polos and love them. They fit great and look great too! I am a bigger guy and they fit me well.
True story about how wonderful they are:
I was attending an annual meeting social event outside with food and beer. Hundreds of people everywhere. I had a dark beer in a cheap cup. The beer ended up spilling all over the white shirt. I didn't know what I would do. It was a white shirt with a dark beer. Not good. Then I remembered it was Columbia. I excused myself, walked over to an area with no one in it. Poured some water on the spill. Rinsed it off, ringed the shirt out and put it back on. No one was any more the wiser. The shirt still looked great and dried in minutes.
I love these shirts!!!

This shirt is seriously oversized. It is cut VERY wide and not at all fitted, resulting in a very boxy, sloppy look. If you are at all slimmer or athletically built, I strongly suggest ordering one size down to get a proper fit. The material is quite thin and light and would probably be very comfortable and cooling in hot weather (no personal experience because I returned my shirt due to the poor fit). I recommend staying away from white because it is a bit transparent due to the thinness and would be totally revealing if caught in the rain.

Good material and all around good polo
This Polo style is THE BEST. I have several of these. My only suggestion is: make it a 3-button polo versus two. Three button shirts are slightly more professional looking and in the winter time wearing an undershirt underneath them for a little more warmth works better with 3-buttons (getting them off and on when layering).
Another request would be: add some more color selection to these NEW UTILIZER style: maybe a few more earth tone colors.
I wear polos to work almost everyday. This style would work great with company logos or uniforms.
