    How to wear a polo shirt

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/121623...n/photostream/



    I recently bought this Ralph Lauren polo shirt. What are your opinions? Does it look better to leave it untucked? Leave the top button done up or undone? Or wear it with the collar popped?

    What are your thoughts on polo's?

    I usually wear them untucked with the top button closed.

    Definitely wouldn't wear that one with the collar popped - it looks naff. To be honest, I think all Ralph Lauren polos look naff.

    Done up with the placket tucked under the collar. Tuck in if it's particularly long, otherwise only do so if you're wearing it in a smarter context (like with smartish trousers, or smart jeans/chinos) and wear a belt.

    I like polos, would like some long sleeve ones, only got the one.

    not a fan of popping the colour...
    buttoned up.
    untucked.

    same as DorianGrape. Not really a fan of RL but I like polos in general and pulled mine out of the wardrobe now the weather is better last night.

    If you have to go for generic mass-produced polos buy Fred Perry (or Moncler if you have the extra 25-30) instead. RL ones are way too baggy made for middle-aged men or Americans who don't wear fitted clothes. FP also is a little dull, but at least theirs are slim fit with fitted arms. Must admit I like polos for work as I'm too lazy to wear anything decent. Can't do the top buttons up though as my neck is too big. Think that look can look decent if you're slim. If you're bigger just wear it unbuttoned and untucked.

    Speaking of Fred Perry, this is how I usually wear mine: Instagram

    A while ago I used to button all the buttons up to the top (shirts too), but lately I just couldn't be arsed because of the heat.

    I think Uniqlo polo are a better fitting than RL. I don't think you get that much for your money with RL polos. J Linderberg are about the best of the 'expensive' polos, I have heard good things about Orlebar Brown polos too.

    As for how to wear it, if your wearing with smart trousers tucked in, if with chinos or jeans always un-tucked IMO

    Which RL polo though? I get that theres an aversion with the logo but their range moves with the times considering its a basic mens staple. Considering the different contemporary fits, sizes, material, designs its unlikely that none will suit. JL are ok but their conventional uninspiring style is a reason they stay primarily on the golf course.
