can't decide if this is the best or worst time to sell my NWOT Thom Browne polo (size 0) (grosgrain errwhere) wink.gif
post #74027 of 117666
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 #74036 of 117666
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.

Eh, I always liked the 1.8T, and I'm quite happy with my TDI. It has plenty of torque, but gets 43 mpg on the highway. That said, I refused to test drive an R32 a while back because I thought I'd wind up liking my TDI less shog[1].gif
