The polo shirt is perhaps the perfect smart-casual piece. Its clean lines and the addition of a collar give off a smart, refined feel yet the softer material and cut ensure it never comes across as stuffy.
The long sleeve polo shirt is an item that is never out of fashion, just more out of favour. There are periods where it’s considered a legitimate wardrobe essential, but then it quickly fades from vogue again.
The long sleeve polo is arguably more versatile and appropriate during autumn/winter than its short-sleeved counterpart. Perfect for layering underneath knitwear, blazers or outerwear, the longer sleeves help retain warmth and allow the piece to be utilised as a standalone top layer during the transition into spring.
