    Love it or hate it, the polo shirt is a casual classic. While your regular Joe may choose to wear it with generic khakis or shorts, I hope you will up the game slightly by doing it a bit more sartorial. You don't need to wear it with a jacket or suit, but try to make it look stylish.

    The expiration date is March 1st, and the outfit should be worn sometime during February. Go bananas!

    Here are a few examples of how one can style it:

    I'm very conservative when it comes to these things...

    I have the week off from work and it’s going to be 53 F on Thursday. I can cook something up.

    Perhaps not quite what was meant by "polo", but as close as I intend to get for this challenge.

    Just got back from Japan for the first time, so didn’t get a chance to submit to the last challenge but I figured I’d use this to set the jeans out on their maiden voyage, which I purchased on my trip.

    Ha ! A connoisseur ! I had the Richard Allen book cover in my mind for the picture, even if the outfit is very different.
    Yep, quite warm here mate. No need for a jacket !
