I would too, but as someone who has to survive the humid central Florida summers (for us are 6-7 months of the year) the bottom line is that knit polos breathe better than long sleeve shirts. And while linen has it's pace, for me it's an occasional option not an every day go-to.
For me, dressing here in the heat is as much picking clothes that function well in the environment and work well with my tendency to easily perspire (ugh). That means that when the heat cranks up, polos get heavier rotation whether I like it stylistically or not.
In the end, form follows function not the other way around.
