The polo shirt has not only become a staple requirement in most men’s wardrobes but, over time, has also earned its place as a fashion classic. You’d be hard pressed to find a man who doesn’t own at least three or four of these comfortable and versatile pieces. Smart and sporty, this style icon is infinitely versatile, which is why it can be your ultimate ally. The first polo shirts date back to the 19th century, when they were worn by the British Army and named after the game of polo, which originated in India. Back then, polo shirts were made out of thick, long sleeved cotton and looked much like any other shirt but with one crucial difference – the collars were adapted, so they could be buttoned down to prevent flapping while galloping on horseback! The fabulous thing about the polo shirt is that it suits ALL body types – enhancing the parts that you like to showcase yet subtly disguising the parts that you may be less keen on. A polo shirt always fits well (unless it’s way too big) and lends itself well to layering up with other items, such as a sweater or blazer.
Spray collars and cuffs with stain remover, if heavily stained. Wash garment inside out on gentle cycle. Hang to dry. Never put in dryer. Iron.
Should you wish to have the polo dry cleaned, ask that the polo be laundered as oppose to dry cleaning, as colours may fade.
