    I often wear jeans or khakis and a polo. I am finding that it can be pretty boring and am interested if how an outfit like that can be made a little more interesting. Any ideas? I know layering can be effective, but its hard with it being so warm...

    I've worn two polos at once. One popped the other regular... For a less fratastic look you can layer any T-shirt under your polo. You could do the shirt under the polo, which I have done a few times. Maybe a thin hoodie under the polo.

    If you want really interesting you could try inside-out...[​IMG]

    Although, cooler-looking polos are probably your best bet for being taken seriously.

    Cooler looking polos or cooler trousers are your only options until it gets cool enough to layer and wear jackets.

    Maybe a thin hoodie under the polo.
    Sorry, but that does not sound like a good idea.

    Just don't wear a t-shirt under your polo. For the life of me I still cannot figure out how this became so popular, and how so many people actually think it looks good.

    Just say no to a t-shirt under your polo.

    Do not pop your collar either, that just screams "jackass who needs to be slapped."

    You could always pop your collar. That always gets my attention, but not necessarily in a postive way.

    You're probably right, Get Smart. I just need better looking Polos. I'm not much of a fan or popping the collar or wearing two polos together. I don't think a tee-shirt under a polo is bad as long as the sleeves aren't longer than the polo.

    Thanks for the input guys.

    Well, for a slim polo with a 3 buttons placket, buttoning it up to the top looks fresh.

    And if you got good legs, try pairing polo with shorts that ends a few inches Above your knees.

    It'd be interesting to see some examples of cooler looking polos. I can't find anything other than RL custom fit polos that fit me. So I'm stuck with those, I guess.

    Haha just laughed a half minute because of that guy!

    A really cool mix is: white jeans or shorts, a belt, a aqua t-shirt and a pale pink polo over the t-shirt!
