“The Best Performing Shirt in the World” is not a statement we take lightly. So when we heard that’s what Enro was boasting these days, we wanted to check them out for ourselves.
First, if you aren’t familiar with Enro, they are a true artisan shirtmaker. Started in 1919 and kicking sartorial ass for nearly 100 years, they definitely know there way around some sleeves and buttons. But they haven’t always claimed to have the best performing shirts, so what’s changed? Let’s take a look at their steps to ensuring maximum shirt awesomeness, and we’ll give you our assessment at the end.
The first step in making the best performing shirt in the world? Making it in your own backyard. All Enro shirts are meticulously crafted in their own workrooms rather than being sent out for a manufacturer to handle their business. Keeping it in-house allows them to focus on their staple shirting ingredients, like non-breakable buttonholes, no-curl collars, their patented pucker-free technology, and double-sewed buttonholes so you’ll never catch a loose thread. As far as craft goes, we’re willing to agree with them thus far.
After the building and sewing is done, Enro still strives to keep their word. Their exclusive non-iron technology will keep the shirt looking crisp and clean all day long, no matter what the day throws your way. Plus, this technology also protects against shrinkage. So if your shirt is suddenly too small, the size change probably isn’t with the shirt…
Enro will tell you they have “a new level of cotton comfort.” I will tell you that I 100% agree with this. When I first opened my Enro box, the luxurious feel was the first thing I noticed. Easily some of the softest cotton I have ever felt in a dress shirt. So far, these shirts are definitely living up to their claims.
Patented cooling technology. Yes, you read that correctly. Yes, these might be the most technically advanced shirts you’ve ever seen. Not only will this soft cotton keep you crazy comfortable, it will keep you cool when everyone else is sweating through their outfits. It’s always a good look to not be pitting out your shirt at the office, and this will help you achieve that a little easier come July and August.
To keep with the technology trend the rest of the shirt has going on, Enro finished these off with a patented stain release finish on the collar and cuffs. This helps to reduce the nasty sweat rings dress shirts accumulate, and to help keep that mayo from lunch from making a permanent home where it isn’t welcomed.
More sunblock than your average shirt. The Enro luxury performance line has built in 30+ UV-A and UV-B sun protection to keep your skin healthy and young. So basically, this shirt is made for the office, the beach, and literally everything in between.
So the question remains, is this truly the “Best Performing Shirt in the World”? We’d have to say yes. Enro has taken their nearly 100 years of experience and used it to create one of the most technically advanced, softest shirts we’ve ever seen. And best of all, these shirts that could easily retail for over $200 are holding strong at under $90 a piece. Now excuse us while we go shop for some more.
