FILA Le Mans Golf Polo – About as Eco-friendly As You Can Get


I was recently sent a FILA polo and asked to write a review about. I was vaguely familiar with FILA, it seems to me that Bjorn Borg used to wear their tennis apparel. I decided to accept the assignment and set out to learn more about the company.

poloIn doing my due diligence, I was astounded to learn that FILA Korea, the parent company, purchased Acushnet in 2011. That makes them not only one of the world’s largest sportswear manufacturers in the world, it also makes them the owners of such golf brands as Titleist, FootJoy, and Pinnacle. It’s a good thing that FILA has offices in 11 countries around the world.

Originally, The company’s primary product was underwear; it wasn’t until the 1970s that they moved into the sportswear arena after signing Bjorn Borg to an endorsement deal. This increased the popularity of the brand tremendously
Which brings me to the review. The FILA Le Mans Polo is about as eco-friendly as any garment can be. It’s made from a polyester material which is 100% recycled pop (or soda, pronounced so-der in the northeast) bottles. Throw 9% spandex into the mix and you have a fabric with enough give and stretch to allow for a comfortable golf swing. It’s also a material that is very soft.

The fabric in the Le Mans Polo is moisture wicking and draws moisture and sweat away from the body and transfers it to the fabric’s outer layer where it can evaporate quickly. This keeps you dry, cool and comfortable even in extremely hot weather.

As if that’s not enough, this moisture wicking fabric is finished with an anti-bacterial agent which is very effective at eliminating the very bacteria that causes perspiration odor. The Le Mans Polo features a self-collar and a contrasting left sleeve mesh panel, which adds a nice touch to this garment. The Le Mans Polo can be purchased on the FILA website for $80.00.

FILA makes a lot more than just quality golf polos; A quick visit to will let you see all of the golf apparel they have to offer.
