Style 936 is a men’s shirt constructed from 82 percent polyester, 18 percent cotton, finely knit interlock fabric that measures 12 stitches per linear centimeter counted in the horizontal direction and 16 stitches per linear centimeter counted in the vertical direction. Style 936 features a self-fabric spread collar; a full front opening with a zippered closure; short, hemmed sleeves; side panels of contrasting fabric; a half moon at the rear neckline; large appliques across the front and back panels; a rubberized logo on the left sleeve; woven fabric labels on the lower left portion of the front panel and at the rear neckline; and a straight, hemmed bottom with double side slits.
