Be Sporty-Smart: Choose Your Bowling Shirt Wisely

Posted by Nick Niesen on October 29th, 2010

In every sport, there is a winner, and every winner comes with a great shirt that he should say "thank you" for because every shirt that the player puts on is a factor in his or her performance.

That is why in a particular sport such as bowling, every player knows that he has to put on the best shirt that he could find in order to win the game. Why? This is because bowling shirts are specifically made to fit the individual needs of the bowler.

Basically, a bowling shirt is a special kind of clothing characterized by the typical "box-cut" style with short sleeves and a "button-up pocket" in the front. But its special features are focused on the unique, plain, two-colored chunk designs whose features tend to create the 50's look.

So for those who so not know how to select a bowling shirt, here are some tips:

1. Choose the standard design

A plain white shirt with a different front section is the typical design of a bowling shirt. A typical black-white combination would be nice especially if the player wants to have it imprinted. Experts say that a white shirt usually gives a better background for any imprinted design.

The classic bowling shirt is perfect for imprinted designs of any color. Imprinting is cheaper on the black and white shirts than on shirts of other colors.

2. Cotton snug

One of the best things about bowling shirts is that they are usually made of cotton or a combination of polyester and cotton materials. This fabric is very comfortable and gives a more relaxed feeling while playing the game.

3. Size matters

It is important to always consider the size of the shirt because the shirt is too loose or too tight it will affect the performance of the bowler.

What matters most is that the player can move, swing, and shift positions easily and comfortably when delivering the ball. Selecting a bowling shirt is not difficult just remember it must be comfortable as well as appealing and neat.
