Photoshoot: Stylish polo shirts for men


Once solely the domain of mods and skinheads, the knitted polo shirt has taken on a new sense of luxury this summer. Best worn with panache and a dash of its original attitude

The origins of the polo shirt might be in the sport of the same name but its use has fortunately diversified. This summer the polo shirt is about luxury. Not just sportswear.

Worn far and wide a polo shirt is that rare thing in fashion; wearable across ages and occasions and more importantly timeless. The more tailored structure allows the style to strike a comfortable balance between a casual t-shirt and the stuffiness of a formal shirt.

The British may suffer from an unfortunate reputation when it comes to summer dressing; however invest in one of these styles for a fail-safe addition to your holiday wardrobe.
