An enduring all-time classic menswear staple, the polo has always been a smart solution to wear during the summer season. Invented back in the mid-1920s by the renowned French tennis player René Lacoste, the polo is the comfortable piece of clothing to match with your denim, chinos, shorts, literally everything and anything.

Championed by numerous brands and style icons (Paul Newman, Steve McQueen, Ryan Gosling and more) the polo is the easiest way to look effortlessly smart and sleek without the hustle.

There are few simple rules to wear it the proper way. Avoid the long back-end of the polo, avoid the tight sleeves, do not wear them with an undershirt, never, we mean it, NEVER pop the collar unless you are into the douchebag style -we urge you not.

Needless to say that this season’s polos are a splash of colour. So are you in or out?
