The polo shirt as a new form of male elegance

When it comes to menswear, the terms “classic” and “iconic” are often associated with the polo shirt.

The polo shirt, the symbol of the contemporary gentleman, also known as a golf or tennis shirt, is made with long sleeves with rounded cuffs or short sleeves, has a collar closed by two or three buttons and sometimes features a breast pocket.

Bridging the gap of formality between the shirt and the simple T-shirt, the polo shirt is also used in the smartest working environments where, in the summer, the intense heat induces everyone to replace shirts.

 

THE POLO: a must-have for elegant sportswear for men

Men’s polo shirts are a passepartout, an elegant and versatile garment that cannot miss in any man’s wardrobe.

Polo shirts, in fact, are made of cotton gauzed or rice stitch, fine shaved or piqué worked and combine the pleasure and comfort of knitwear with the elegance and wearability of an applied collar with a shirt effect. One of the advantages of garments made of cotton pique is their breathability, which makes them irreplaceable in summer.

 

 Style tips on how to combine the Polo shirt to create a sporty elegant outfit for men

The Polo shirt can be worn in the office with single-breasted jackets, deconstructed blazers, inserted into cotton pants to be combined with a leather belt or a pair of nubuck loafers in natural tones to complete your sophisticated and elegant look.

To create a casual look, you can pair the polo shirt with Bermuda shorts. Choose polo shirt models in natural tones such as light blue, beige and cream and in breathable fabrics, and complete your elegant sporty men’s outfit with the white sneaker, which will give you an unmistakable style.

For leisure time, polo shirts, elegant, essential, with a classic fit, are the ideal garment to combine with chinos pants, in fabrics such as cotton or linen, with the rigor of ton sur ton, perhaps on the occasion of a night at the beach, to create a total white look.
