The polo shirt has served as a men’s athleisure fixture for the last century plus, offering a cleanly silhouetted, easy-wearing collared shirt with unique intercontextual versatility. Recent luxury house offerings have seen traditional petit piqué versions supplemented by hybrid variants, cast in technical fabrics like nylon mesh or in mixed materials with textural striping. Long sleeved, oversized pieces take on rugby ruffian and oldschool expeditionary significations, reveling in timeworn historical and sportswear signifiers. Logo appliqués at chest provide charmingly explicit branding for character and personality, a long-held privilege of the clothing article. Hoop pull-tabs and half-zip closure options re-work the polo’s traditional button-placket look to find new optics and forms of tactile interest. The polo has always paired easily with a blazer and twill trousers to affect a leisurely clubhouse look but, true to our era of mix-and-match symbiosis, has quietly found new contingencies of use in more dressed-up formal and eclectic streetwear ensembles.
