The British Police have begun to issue this black police shirt to all British "Bobbys" who go on street patrol. After extensive testing, police officers in the United Kingdom declared this black shirt -- made from light weight, breathable material -- to be the best police duty shirt to be worn with body armor. In days past the traditional British Bobby uniform had patrol officers wearing long sleeve white dress shirts with clip on ties, not exactly practical or comfortable while wearing body armor.
Be sure to look at the picture of actual British Bobby's wearing this shirt while on street patrol. There is also a great article on the Daily Mail's website that describes why the British police changed to this style of shirt.

Shirts arrived quickly after order. Quality of product is excellent. Ordered a 3X and they're definately more of a 2X. Suggest ordering a size larger than you usually wear if you want a lose fit. Snug fit will be your regular size. "Police" is marked on both sleeves. When SHTF, these and my "Police" hat my just get me where I need to go. :-)
