Wearing polos with suits

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Is it awkward to wear polos shirts (Cotton, wool, cashmere) with sport coats and suits? Like in Goodfellas. I like it.

I personally have never done it, maybe without the jacket but that's just me...

The guy in the picture pulls it off, I think, but personally I don't feel at ease with my long thin arms sticking out from a jacket sleeve without the company of a shirt cuff.

I guess it depends on how you are built - with a heavy bone structure you might pull it off. Being a "lanky bollox" (as an Irish woman once called me. We never married.) it does not look too good.

I would do it, if the suit were casual enough, e.g. cotton.

The guy in the pic looks awful. This is not a good look.

Not a traditionalist's look but common enough and well accepted in informal circumstances.

Sportcoats - probably
Suits - probably not

I'm not a fan with a suit. I have worn long sleeve cashmere polos with a SC in the winter. Here in Colorado that's still pretty formal shog[1].gif

I agree on wearing it casually with the suit.

My favorite way to wear a suit is also without a jacket. Some people refer to this as "shirt & pants," but I still prefer "suit" because it sounds more professional.

Your favorite way to wear a suit is not to wear one? lol

I don't think the polo is meant to be worn with a suit like that.
