The Great Polo Shirt Conundrum - Page 2
Styleforum Top Picks
Having entered my forties, I always wear shirts with collars, i.e. the polo has become what the t-shirt was when I was in my twenties. Dress your age, as they say.
For the office? Possibly if you work on a Saturday in July.
I pretty much only wear polo shirts while on vacation, and maybe a few times during the Danish 3 week summer.

Those look nice. Who makes them?
I really like the BB Golden Fleece slim fit and Polo Ralph Lauren custom fit polos. These eliminate some of the boxiness that people in the thread have complained about. I think they're well worth the $40-$50 you can get them for on sale pretty easily. Personally never cared for Lacoste or found anything else worthwhile. YMMV. Some of my older ones will be serving me for the seventh summer and they still look nice.
Love the look Kaplan! Tailored cut with mid bicep sleeve length. Cheers!
It's difficult to generalize all polos in one category. Like everything in a man's closet, the context of wearing a polo depends on one's style and life. It is certain however that polos are no longer t-shirts with a collar. There will always be lower quality brands that target a lower-priced market which will sometimes resemble something along these lines. But companies like Kent Wang and Vastrm are nice reminders that what is available today certainly isn't your grandfather's polo.
