Polo shirts - Wearing with collar UP - Page 3

Is the back of your neck getting sunburned? otherwise it stays down.

Well yes, when you play cricket quite usually.

+1

If you're out in sun with fair skin I'd give you a pass - it's serving a genuine purpose.

Absolutely hideous but do we really need another thread on popped polo collars?

Sorry, I wasn't having a go at your use of the turned up collar, although I can understand how you though that.
Your use of the upturned collar seems pretty reasonable. Just like turning up a coat collar it is a weather/situation thing, not for looking cool.

Any other time its just "a bag a washin!"

I'd wear sunscreen first, and if sunscreen was not available I'd let my neck burn

I never thought you were anyway, I just didn't know whether you were used to cricket, being a Scot and all...

I think it's entirely dependent on the individual. If you know nothing about style, don't do it. If you take a lot of risks and have an already established stylistic comfort level, it'll work. Much like an ascot. You either rock it or you don't, and that's entirely dependent on how you come off in your demeanor. You need the comfort and confidence to make it seem like it's no big deal. Sean Connery could wear his collar up and look awesome. The kid in accounting would look like a complete douchebag. Also, I still can't believe people double-up on Polos. This was a sales technique created for mannequins and table-top displays to showcase a variety of colors in little space. I'd like to meet the idiot who translated that literally and the others who apparently completely missed the memo regarding it. What's next, pinning our sweaters back in public

+1 ~ It can afford some protection from the elements. Beach, sports, etc...

That douche seems quite content with his popped collar.

I'm just still at a lack of understanding as to why in the hell the designers would STILL promote all of this bullshit..

...which is exactly what Mr. Lacoste had in mind when he designed it.

As others have said, I think it's okay to pop it up to protect your neck from the sun, but only then.

On a polo? My friend, get some sunscreen and a jacket.
