Although it may not seem it yet, the summer is approaching fast and it’s time to start thinking about transitioning your wardrobe into something more seasonally appropriate.
If you’re a polo shirt man then this Marc by Marc Jacobs Polo should be a serious consideration as an addition to your summer wardrobe. Its classic cut silhouette is offset with the quirky trio of block colours, giving the overall look character and individuality without being ostentatious.
To me this polo is the embodiment of Marc Jacobs’ objective view of fashion – despite being accused of copying fellow designers work numerous times, Jacobs insists that the perfect item of clothing cannot be invented by one genius mind, hence the industry relies on adaptations and interpretations. This polo exemplifies Jacobs’s theory by taking a classic menswear staple and adding a distinctive, idiosyncratic twist.
Coupled with a pair of tailored chino shorts, this polo could provide you with the perfect versatile summer holiday piece. Due to its inherent smart-casual aesthetic, it can also be dressed up or down to suit, enabling it to be paired with everything from a pair of slim jeans to one of your lightweight summer suits.
The understated and sophisticated nature of this polo is reinforced by the subtle, and illustrious, “MJ” logo located on the left breast. For those who know about fashion, you will receive a knowing, unspoken appreciation for your taste.
