What can I say? I can’t get enough of a guy in a slim-cut piqué cotton polo.
Last week, Hitha showed you all the colors that belong in a well-dressed guy’s closet, using versions of this short-sleeved summer essential to make her point.
This week it’s time to add those shirts into your wardrobe.
The polo shirt is surprisingly versatile for guys, as it can be dressed up and down. So what are you waiting for?
Don’t be afraid to wear your polo with a suit. Just keep the suit casual and the polo really crisp (ie, not the years-old one from Aeropostale that you got in high school and has a pizza sauce stain on the placket)Polo – J.Crew, $43 Suit – SuitSupply, $470 Shoes – G.H. Bass, $109
This one’s pretty easy – polo, jeans, a sportcoat, and you’re out the door. Keep the color palate in check with pastels on your shirt.Polo - Original Penguin, $70 Jeans – Uniqlo, $30 Shoes – Tretorn, $70 Sportcoat – Uniqlo, $30
You guys know I’m not usually in favor of cargo shorts, but all bets are off when it comes to camo. Use it sparingly – very, very sparingly – in your closet, and we’re cool. Make sure yours are still slim(-ish) and sit on your hips, not hover around the middle of your butt.Polo - Gant, $60 Shorts – Old Navy, $20 Shoes – Vans, $45
