Higo Shirts – A Quick Review

(by Steve Hopkins)

Sometimes its hard to tell from a distance what a shirt is really like.  A lot of us end up buying shirts based more upon color or design than how well the shirt would work for us in match situations.  My team chose Butterfly’s Higo shirt for our uniform at the Puerto Rico Open Teams Tournament, and I received my shirt last week.

Obviously, from the design perspective you can judge at a distance – there’s a single visible button (and two additional buttons hidden by a flap), a graphic texture (not actual texture-just a design element), and a smooth and soft material.  What I’d like to tell you about is how the shirt fits and how it feels.

The shirt is a little heavier than some of my other Butterfly brand shirts – the result of a slightly denser material (the tag says “lycra mix 88% polyester and 12% elastic”).  That said, it has the ability to stretch about 50% of its total width.  The material is soft, and cool, and smooth, and it moves with you.  I have now worn it at our club twice and it breathes well, is quick-drying, and it looks great.  Its my new favorite shirt.

The photo above is USA’s Kanak Jha in his Higo shirt cheering his win over Tomokazu Harimoto in Singapore.  And the video below shows Patrick Franziska rocking his Higo set (shirt and shorts) in his big win in the same event over Xu Xin.
