Q. What types of materials are used in my design?
A. All of our shirts are made of 100% cotton. We strive to make cotton the fabric of choice for work, play or life and will continue to source the highest caliber cotton fabric we can find. We use only 100% cotton lacoste, pique, jersey, organic, and interlock fabric types for our shirts. We will do our best to offer a variety of colors and patterns throughout the year.
Q. Where are your shirts made?
A. Our shirts are currently sourced and sewn in various parts of Asia including China and Thailand. All the factories we work with comply The Low Carbon Manufacturing Program, The Greenhouse Gas Protocol Initiative, and The Sustainable Fashion Business Consortium, which are standards set to reduce carbon emissions and restore our environmental impact.
Q. What shirt options typically look good together?
A. That is totally up to you! That is the beauty of mass customization and the power of our site! That said, we would suggest ONE standard option that is common among current polo shirts, that is using a flat knit collar when selecting a lacoste 20s or pique main body fabrics. Other than that, there are no rules, so have fun and play with different colors and fabric combinations. And if you need some help, select a shirt from our “Get Inspired” section to start you off on the right foot!
Q. Do you have any wrinkle-free fabrics available?
A. All our current fabrics are wrinkle-resistant. They are all also resistant to shrinkage, pillage, and color fading. Our shirts will hold their form and color time and time after dozens of washes.
Q. Do you make polo shirts for women?
A. No, but if there is enough interest, we will certainly give it a go. Stay tuned on this topic...
Q. What if I require a larger or smaller shirt size?
A. For now, our standard sizes range from S – 2XL. If these sizes do not fit your frame, please send us an email and we will see about adding additional sizes to our line.
Q. Are the colors a true match to the actual fabric?
A. We have done the best we can to photograph and match the colors exactly to the actual fabric, however the colors may vary in shades darker or lighter depending on the color calibration on your monitors and, of course, our fabric colors can vary somewhat based on natural variations among different dye lots. The time of day and the amount of sunlight will also effect the shades and hues you see. We would be happy to send you a swatch of the color, if you would like to see the actual fabric before you purchase. Simply email us at email@example.com
Q. How can I make sure I select the proper shirt size?
A. Use our Size and Fit Chart to find the right measurements and sizing. Also, as a general rule of thumb, the sport fit is true to size. Consider sizing up one size for the slim fit (if you are a medium try size large in our slim fit) and sizing down one size for relaxed fit (if you are a medium try size small for the relaxed fit.)

Q. How do I care for my Vastrm shirts?
A. We recommend you wash your new Vastrm shirts in cold or warm water with like colors and dry on low heat. Do not use bleach. You will notice that our shirts will resist shrinking, wrinkling, pilling, fading, curling wash after wash. Also, we recommend removing your shirt from the dryer immediately and giving them a nice fold. If necessary, you can use a warm iron. This will help keep your shirt looking crisp and clean! If you experience any problems with care of your new garment, let us know and we will do what we can to help!
Q. Once I receive my shirt how do I know what size my shirt is?
A. The size tag is located inside the seam on the left side of the shirt by the waist. It will display your size (S,M, L, etc...) and fit (slim, sport, or relaxed).
