The Polo Shirt is an essential summer staple and an invaluable wardrobe component. Bridging the formality gap between a shirt and a t-shirt, it is a versatile product that comes in many different colours and materials, with the ability to be worn on casual or formal occasions and even stretches it’s style to sportswear.
The history of the polo shirt leads all the way back to the 1800s, when British Soldiers witnessed a Polo match in Manipur, India, and went on to set up the first Polo Club of its time including the traditional polo kit made up of long sleeved cotton shirts. Its evolution continued into the 1900s with Lacoste wearing his own design at the US Open, then onto British Tennis Champion, Fred Perry, debuting his own variation of sportswear adorned with the iconic laurel wreath.
This led on to more brands like Ralph Lauren bringing out his own line of Polo Shirts which allowed for players and spectators to both wear them, making them a key part of the everyday wardrobe. The Polo Shirt has now become a uniform for workers, athletes and students for its simple design, comfort, and durability.
Today, the Polo Shirt is one of the most recognisable garment designs in the world with many brands designing polo shirts of their own. While a lot of people wear polo shirts quite casually, you can just as easily wear them in a more formal situation.
Adding to its versatility, the Polo Shirt is now used widely for branding. Customised Polo Shirts are used to showcase businesses, products or services and are a great way to get your business’ name out there while also giving employees a sense of uniformity.
