FIVE WAYS TO STYLE THE MENS LONG SLEEVED POLO SHIRT
Posted on November 24 2016
Our timeless Men’s long sleeve polo-shirt is a must-have in any man’s wardrobe. Easily dressed up or down it can be worn as day wear or evening wear. Throw a parker or trench coat over the top and you’ve got yourself an effortless outfit.
The polo shirt, as we know it today, is an absolute timeless classic, however, it was originally introduced in the early 19th century as a form of tennis attire. Before the polo shirt, (otherwise known as the tennis shirt) players would have to wear a shirt and tie, which as I am sure you can imagine, would have been a pain to play in. Fast forward about a century or so and the polo shirt became iconic in the world of golf as a smart staple item. Nowadays the polo shirt is a more comfortable fashion piece, it remains one of the most popular pieces in any man’s wardrobe and deserves a place as that capsule wardrobe item.
Our cotton polo neck comes in five different colours: black, navy, ash grey, charcoal and tawny port. Perfect for all occasions and all styles. Add a blazer over the top to smarten it up and you have achieved formal work wear with next to no effort.
ADD A LAYER OR TWO
To add some warmth to your outfit, match your polo shirt under our charcoal lambswool crew neck sweater and match with a pair of chunky military style boots for the ultimate winter wear. Our polo neck is perfect as it is versatile through all the seasons. Simply layer is up in the winter or throw on a pair of jeans or shorts in the summer, so, there’s no need to constantly keep swapping around those wardrobe essentials.
KEEP IT CASUAL
The great thing about our long sleeve polo neck is you can pair them with almost any item in your wardrobe and instantly look ‘pulled together’ even if, in reality, you have actually just rolled out of bed. Match your polo neck (I recommend black or charcoal for this look) and throw on some straight leg, faded jeans and trainers or a pair of Converse sneakers.
It doesn’t get any simpler than adding a pair of tailored grey trousers on with your black long sleeved polo neck and a leather belt. This look is perfect for when you are swapping between work and then straight out for drinks, or on a date.
THE PRACTICAL PARKER
Nothing screams comfort like a thick parker coat. For the ultimate winter, outfit take your comfy polo neck and throw on a thick khaki coloured parker with a pair of skinny jeans and chunky boots.
