    **** Not multiple choice ****

    Get your polo game on! If it's cold outside, wear a polo neck (turtleneck) and if it's warm outside, wear a polo shirt (fine knit, piqué etc. long or short sleeve). Suit or sport coat is mandatory.

    The rules:

    - Outfit has to be worn this week.
    - You have to wear either a polo neck or a polo shirt with a suit/sport coat
    - Has to be posted before Saturday evening Swedish time (UTC). Poll expires midnight (GMT) on Monday.

    In! To be clear, it's either turtleneck or polo shirt?

    Aye! Less confusing, but didn't have the same ring to it.

    So, we can choose one of two completely different kinds of tops...? if I were you, @Shen , I'd specify one or the other (and not polo shirts because they're horrible...)

    Given the transitional weather around the world, Shen's compromise seems fine to me. That said, it's too hot for my "polo" neck, and I the one polo shirt I own is not really jacket compatible.

    For those who might be wondering what a "polo shirt" is, polo shirts are clearly labelled as being polo shirts......

    ......if it doesn't say "polo shirt" on the label, it isn't a polo shirt. (At least, that's what I think a "polo shirt" is.)

    Disagree. Polo shirt to me is what was posted in the description of the challenge(at least the last 2 pics.) The first 3 pics(to me) are turtlenecks.

    The main challenge was going to be turtleneck (polo neck) and the polo shirt was meant as some sort of viable compromise.

    I think it's @Shen 's challenge, and he can do what he wants with it, and call the pieces whatever he likes, as long as we all understand what he means. I think we do.

    I love both turtlenecks and polos (obviously), so this challenge is right up my alley.

    Inis sweater worn both as a turtleneck and slightly unzipped. Rota trousers. BB MTM jacket. Not the most flattering photos, but life goes on. Brown monks are outside the frame. Outdoor shots give a better sense of color, but camera angle was better inside.
