Great look, Kaplan. Very impressive.

Thank you, that's very kind.

As for the polos in the post above, sorry to say but they are all horrible.

H, you know I've tried to find these before, but this time it actually worked.

They're by Guy Rover, mentioned here.

Yep, KW polos and rugby polos are far and away the best at that price point. MoP buttons, great fit, no logo, and rakish spread stand up collar. (You'll have to find you're own better half though...)

I love polo shirts, but to look good they have to fit slim and the sleeve must fit close to the bicep. Most look pretty bad, with sleeves that are too long and too wide and a generally sloppy fit.

The best polos are made by (or perhaps I should say for) Tom Ford. They cost an arm and a leg but I haven't seen anything else which comes close.

I´m very happy with my RL Polo Custom Fit (slim fit) polos.

But my favorite is a real polo shirt worn by a real team. While in Buenos Aires for the Abierto this past fall I picked up the authentic polo shirt worn by the championship team: Ellerstrina.

My favorite polos I've come across are Banana's luxe-touch. Incredibly soft in a slimmer fit. The sleeves might be a tad short for some. http://bananarepublic.gap.com/browse/category.do?cid=47431&mlink=10894,5081454,2&clink=5081454

Winston:  Would love the opportunity to make you one that resembles the Tom Ford fit.  Do you have one on hand that you can measure out for us?  DM me and we can see what we can do.  jtang@vastrm.com

Is this really how a polo shirt supposed to fit and look? shog[1].gif

Nah, I don’t think so. It looks awkward. I don’t know. Eeh

I am in a unique circumstance (law student), but I wore the polo shirt + blazer combo today actually. I used to hate the combo, but now I wear it once a month or so (it was HOT and humid today).

 

Red BB GF polo, RL blazer, tan chinos, Allen Edmond's Stand wingtips in brown, university lapel pin, cool but subtle pocket square. A polo+blazer and I'm instantly the best dressed guy in the building, save the dean and a few professors. I usually wear slacks or chinos, OCBD, wingtips, and a sportcoat or blazer if it's not too hot.

 

But I agree with others that it's a very casual look. I think it fits fine inside a university setting or similar. (I first started thinking it was okay when I saw my favorite undergrad philosophy professor sporting polo+blazer.)

Hah, the guy just needs to work out. That's one of the only reasons I randomly choose polos over OCBD. Women I'm interested in can't tell I work out nearly as easily when wearing the latter. fistbump.gif
