Rib-knitted portions of 100% cotton comprise the long sleeves, the waistband, and the back of this garment. The fronts of the garment, at the lower portion of each of which a pocket is located, are manufactured from quilted, woven polyester, padded with polyester batting, and determine the essential characteristic of this style.

As you have requested, the sample garment is being returned.
