4 NEAT KNITTED POLOS
By Sam Higgins, 3 August 2017
Polo shirts are the unsung heroes of the male summer wardrobe. Their comfort levels are on par with your standard white T, however, come casual Friday, they offer an all-round classier, more put-together alternative. The polo now comes in a range of ace new textures, including these four knit-riffs on the tennis classic.
As an undoubtable wardrobe staple, block colour is a one-way ticket to a fresh, clean look. This almost-all-white option with ribbed sleeves, for example, echoes the shirt's timeless tennis roots, while the minimalist, navy shoulder strip adds that extra-slick edge. If you’re keen to channel those vintage vibes, hop on the 80s-trend bandwagon by selecting this forest-green, textured number with a contrasting orange-stripe detail.
Searching for a jazzier take on the shape? This art-deco-esque, monochrome pattern will not only deliver the sharp, modern update you’ve been looking for, but it's accentuated by the black edging on the sleeves and collar. Alternatively, keep the print plain but opt for a bolder (and brighter) approach. Vibrant tones, like this sunshine-shade shirt, are guaranteed to bring the energy to your summery steez.
