One of the most versatile pieces of Mens Clothing – The Polo Shirt

As the weather doesn’t seem to know if its coming or going at the moment, we have to still be hopeful that Summer 2013 will eventually arrive and in preparation. One of the most versatile pieces of menswear kit at your disposal is the humble Polo Shirt. OK not from such humble beginnings, we have the French tennis champion Monsieur René Lacoste to thank for inventing this wonderful bit of clobber, back in 1933, when he replaced the classical woven, long-sleeved starched shirt with a light and comfortable short-sleeved one in airy petit piqué fabric, better known today as the classic LACOSTE polo shirt.

Since then the polo shirt has come a long way baby, refusing to be categorised into a casual or formal box, the polo shirt can be worn on either occasion looking equally as good teamed with a clean, crisp single breasted suit for a summer wedding as it does with a pair of dark selvage denim jeans on a long, leisurely evening out with a loved one.
