I don't see how a tucked in polo is any more professional ... you're still wearing a white polo and blue jeans.

Also I just realized that was grizzlybear not ronnel. lol

Agreed. If you allow jeans, you should allow untucked shirts.

Oh I can't stand this anymore..yesterday, the cardigan was on trial with the clueless riffraff as jury...today it's the polo...

 

First things first--the jeans--with that cuff folding they look ridiculous, especially with those dressy shoes...ignore the hipsters, it looks bloody daft.  The belt is also too much with those jeans...

Now--the polo:  The polo shirt is one of the classics of the 20th century that will last long after the last drop of petroleum is exhausted from the ground.  The reason for its enduring success--versatility.  There are so many styles, cuts, shapes, sleeve lengths, lengths,blah blah blah....but even with such diversity the polo is unforgiving.  The fit must be precise. 

First rule of thumb...upper chest, shoulders fit...it has to fit very snugly here.  Yours does, good.  You have chosen a more modern athletic fit with shorter arms, it seems to work for you...although it is impossible to tell this without seeing you move around in it.  The collar is also modern, which is fine, and you've chosen to leave the buttons closed, that's also fine.  You are doing a lot of things right.

 

Here is Sean Connery in Dr No, wearing one of the great icons of the 20th century--John's Smedley's Isis, available at Mr Porter, John Smedley online and all other fine, no lifetime return with no questions asked, non-riffraff establishments.

See how he has left the buttons opened, but also tucked in...but because of the simplicity of the pants and the lightness of the fabrics for the tropical Caribbean setting, it works!

 

Here is Fred Perry, also tucked in...but notice the casual belt and the non-domineering pants....

For yours, with that athletic fit with the rolling collar and the shorter sleeves, I also think untucked would work better...but tucked doesn't look bad at all actually.

If you want untucked, here is Daniel Craig in Tom Ford's plagiarism of another John Smedley 50-year-old classic--the Jeremy, also available at Mr Porter.

So for you, I would just lose the overaccessorizing and just loosen up...and ignore all the criticisms about polos...you look quite good actually.

This is indeed a very basic outfit but it serves as a good base.

Except Sean Connery and Fred Perry aren't wearing jeans, which is the whole point.

Polos don't look good on anyone unless they're really fit. Otherwise, a button down shirt--even a short sleeve--is a lot more flattering.

If your fat they show your gut, if they're too big you look like 40 year old accountant doing business casual picnic and if your skinny you can't fill out the arm holes.

"But Daniel Craig is. Would you wear jeans on a Caribbean beach or while playing tennis?"

Did you notice anything different when your polo montage got to the one with jeans on?
