All this talk about a proper fitting polo bugs me even more. A slim or fitted polo is the uniform of the college guy who buys whatevers on sale at abercrombie, american eagle etc.

For me th only way a polo should be worn is hyper-casually, cut boxy and loose and never buttoned or tucked. Reserved for boating, playing tennis, or the beach.

The other excusable form of polo shirt are those very trim "retro" polos worn with say slim plaid trousers. I once saw a gaggle of men in polo shirts at a funeral. It was not acceptable.

A slightly shiny one worn with pleated dress trousers, Crocodile brand loafers and a belt with the overly long end tucked in.

What about Thom Browne polos. I like the longer front placket, and the details at the sleeves. Plus they fit very nice.

Banana Republic Monogram polos Ralph Lauren Purple/Black label polos The run of the mill polos (most of the pique ones espeically) look really terrible compared to one with luxurious fabrics and nice cuts

BR and "luxurious fabrics" don't really fit together...Pique fabrics aren't the best, but they have their place.

Polos on fat people never seem to look right. I think this is one of those issues where it is all about how it is executed. One can say that a suit is also the look of mediocrity. Surely, poorly executed polos fall into the same category as poorly executed suits. I agree that they should never be tucked and never buttoned to the top. And no obnoxious colors. Just like there are rules for suits, there are rules for polos.

What's an obnoxious polo color? I have a nice orange one and a light pink one.

I agree with this to a point. I think a more thinner fabric, dressier polo is fine for the office in summer months.

Function>Form.

I basically only wear polo shirts for casual wear, but I wear them very fitted with stove pipe jeans or fitted trousers. I find they look better on very slim people then T shirts and I haven't found a brand of button down shirt that is cut very slim. I need to buy some fred perry polos, I don't like the normal ones that much, but the made in England ones and comme de garcons are great.

Quickest way to look like some boring accountant known around the cul de sac for his mean short game.

I said their Monogram line. They use fabrics from places like Thomas Mason.
