As the heat rises, men are left with fewer options in their wardrobe. As a default, many guys turn to polo shirts as their go-to for the summer.
The problem is, the polo shirt category is dominated by few brands who make a very similar product. Not every polo shirt needs three buttons and a chest symbol.
Try a polo design that is a little less predictable, and a little more stylish.
Here’s a few examples.
1. V-Neck w/ Shirt Collar
This is a super simple design, and it’s one of my favorites.
It’s a v-neck without a placket (no buttons or button holes). The body is cotton in a red hairline stripe, with a slight spandex blend for a little stretch. The collar and neck trim are shirting cotton, so it feels like a real collar.
A simple and effective design, for only $30.
The v-neck sits open and keeps the face framed (I hate when polo plackets are prone to shutting themselves up to the neck).
The length of this piece is on point as well. In my opinion a polo should hit about halfway down the pant fly. Some are cut too short in the front, which can expose stomach at times and are impossible to keep tucked in.
