Why Mens Polo Shirts Are Wardrobe Essentials
Mens polo shirts toe the line between smart and casual and this means that men of all ages and tastes have at least one polo shirt in their wardrobe. The versatility of these comfy shirts means that they can do you for the pub, office, shops and the gym, which is why you can never have enough Mens polo shirts. Polo shirts are the ultimate in sportswear crossover and have infiltrated mainstream fashion in a huge way. No longer just associated with the sporty set, Mens polo shirts are here to stay...
How Mens polo shirts came to be
Mens polo shirts first came to light in the 1920s when tennis ace Rene Lacoste decided to rid himself of the traditional stiff and unruly tennis garb and create a stylish and practical tennis top. When Lacoste retired from professional tennis in 1933 he was good enough to lend his skills to fashion full time and teamed up with clothing merchandiser Andre Gillier and they began to design the iconic Mens polo shirts with the tiny crocodile on the chest. In the 1930s polo players began to adopt the shirt and hence polo shirts came to be and have grown in popularity ever since. Now as well as Lacoste, many fashion labels have added polo shirts to their collections including the famous Fred Perry collections which have a huge following in the music scene. This huge range of Mens polo shirts means that there is a shirt for everyone out there from the retro Americana inspired Original Penguin shirts to the trendy looks of Scotch and Soda.
How to wear Mens polo shirts now
Anything goes when it comes to Mens polo shirts thanks to their wearability. To choose the best Mens polo shirts for your look you need to first define where you will be wearing the outfit to. Most offices will allow gents to wear Mens polo shirts to work but play it safe with classic shirt colours such as black, white, brown or a pale colour such as beige or grey. Obviously ties and polo shirts are not a good idea, but you can layer up your polo shirt for the office with a smart v-neck jumper or even a cardigan for a slightly more casual look. In the evening you can get away with brighter colours and patterns. The retro look of Franklin and Marshall, Original Penguin and Nanny State are ideal for wearing to gigs as they have a definite indie look to them, so match them up with your favourite skinny jeans and hit the venue. For a trendy look for the pub opt for Mens polos with plenty of detailing such as epaulettes and chest pockets and prints, as demonstrated by Henleys and BC London.
Mens polo shirts are ideal clothing thanks to their comfort and versatility and they have certainly come a long way from their tennis origins. To choose your perfect polos have a look online at the huge collection at Reem Clothing.
