Any and every men's capsule wardrobe requires a polo shirt. We repeat, any and every men's capsule wardrobe requires a polo shirt. What is it exactly about polos that make them such a necessity? Well, all you have to do is look at their history, which dates all the way back to the 1850s when they were being used by polo players in India. Fast forward several decades, and polo shirts were then being used by polo players in Great Britain circa the early 1920s. Similar to other historical fashion items such as bomber jackets and aviator sunglasses for example, polos eventually caught on to the general public who realized they too wanted a shirt as a part of their wardrobe, and now over a hundred years later we're here—with polo shirts being the ultimate foundation for your day-to-day styling. If you happen to be on the hunt for one, we've rounded up the best polo shirts for men to wear in 2023 and beyond.
We'll talk more about this later, but remember the key to a great polo is all within the fit and the fabric as comfort is always a priority. These polos are well-made, comfortable, tailored, work with different prices ranges/budgets, and have a nice design as the final selling point.
