I'm older than moo is. (0)

Also, last week while I was on vacation, I wore an AA terry cloth polo with seersucker shorts (which I believe were from Kohl's) and MMM GAT lows (which I swapped out for Birkenstocks when I went to the beach).

can't decide if this is the best or worst time to sell my NWOT Thom Browne polo (size 0) (grosgrain errwhere) wink.gif

The thing is, it's totally possible for a polo to look acceptable -- even good. But it's not easy, very few people can do that, and in the end it usually looks even more bland than a white t-shirt. So I just don't see what the point of wearing one is.

I was just going to say something similar. ^ I really only like them in a skin/mod setting (fred perry style). or else a really luxe, minimal version with no sleeve band. "normal" polos are just too blah for me.

Sun's out guns out brahs. Polos work better than a casual button-down or OCBD if you're fit and it's warm and it's the only thing you're wearing (no jacket).

I actually like the way a polo + chinos/chino shorts can look. Very clean-cut.

I agree though-- it shoudn't be used to replace a t-shirt (which has a different vibe).

Polos have their place but most of the time I see them it's some IT nerd doing the bare minimum to appear like a functioning adult. Hard to shake the imagery of that.

e: Literally the only polo I've ever seen that I liked:

Stanley, is that an .:R32? icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
post #74038 of 117668
It definitely is an R32. Such a pity everyone is going small turbo engines these days. Last of a kind in a way.

Right. Because they are so 'ordinary' and ubiquitous, people think that makes them an easy-to-wear staple item. But actually it's quite rare to see them done well - and this would be in exactly the way you outline here.

+1 but I also like the tennis vibe - white lacoste or maybe even black lacoste polo, not worn too tight.
