polo care instructions
We took extra care when designing our polos to make them as easy to care for as possible—to ensure that they’d stack up even when you’re being mischievous.
follow these steps to get the most out of your polos :
Flip your polo inside out, and run it through the washing machine.
Dry it laying flat or hanging on a sturdy hanger.
Take a few extra seconds to fasten the mother-of-pearl buttons and turn it inside out.

Now that you’re familiar with the basics, the first step in taking proper care of your trusted polo is getting to know it. Is it made from polyester or cotton? If it’s the latter, is it your usual run-of-the-mill cotton, or is it a soft and luxurious pima cotton?
Well, if it’s a Psycho Bunny polo, then it’s pretty straightforward: All of our classic polos are crafted from nothing but pima cotton, using a unique diamond knit pique. Why? Because you deserve the soft feel that comes with pima cotton’s higher thread count and the durability of our diamond pique. With cotton also come’s a minimal amount of shrinkage, you can expect 3-4% on aftet the first wash.
As for polos from our golf range, they’re crafted using a polyester-cotton blend to offer a lighter on-body feel, more breathability and increased moisture-wicking.
While it might be tempting to wear your polo day after day, we do recommend giving it a wash after a day’s worth of wear. Taking a bit of care when washing it will go a long way. The good news is that you don’t have to hand-wash your Psycho Bunny polo—in fact, it’s probably best if you don’t. Chances are that if you wash your polo by hand, not only will you use way more water than necessary, but you won’t give it an even wash.
Instead, just flip your polo inside out before dropping it into the washing machine. It’s a simple gesture that will avoid tugging at any loose threads and keep the colours bright as ever. In other words, your polo will come out looking—and feeling—like the first time you wore it. Pretty cool, right?
Speaking of cool, your polo would really appreciate it if you kept it out of the dryer. Unnecessary exposure to heat will do nothing but harm your polo, especially if there’s any polyester in it. Using the dryer can damage the fibres, cause shrinkage and dull the colours, which sounds like a trio of things nobody wants. You didn’t hear this from us, but—if you’re really in a pinch—our pima cotton polos can be tumble dried on the delicate setting. Our golf polos, or any containing polyester, should never see the inside of a dryer.
In an ideal world, you’d have time to lay your polo flat while it’s drying or, at the very least, afterwards. But we understand that sometimes life gets in the way.Our unique diamond knit pique—developed in-house at Psycho Bunny—was designed to help your polo keep the shape you love, even if you hang it out to dry. Whether it’s for drying or storage, if you do hang your polo, use a hefty hanger to give our diamond pique a helping hand when it comes to keeping that perfect shape.
As far as keeping your collar looking nice and crisp, you don’t have much to worry about. Our polo collars have been designed to not roll. But just to be safe, try to do up the buttons when you’re washing, drying and storing your polo.
to recap, it’s pretty simple:
Give it a spin in the washing machine; dry it laying flat or hanging on a sturdy hanger; take a few extra seconds to fasten the mother-of-pearl buttons and turn it inside out; avoid the dryer, bleach, dry-cleaning, and careless storage.
Oh—and one more thing. We like to keep things simple—you can care for your Psycho Bunny tees by following the same simple steps as for your polo. As for other pieces, compare the care tags to the guide at the top and you'll be on your way towards keeping your favourite pieces looking crisp and clean.
