Polo Wish List

From smart to casual with a suit, jacket or paired with shorts, the polo shirt is one of my staples for summer. French tennis champion René Lacoste designed a white, short-sleeved, loose knit piqué cotton shirt with a collar, buttoned placket & shirt-tail to wear at the 1926 US Open. The term polo shirt, which previously had referred to the long-sleeved buttoned-down shirts traditionally used in polo, soon became a universal name to describe a tennis shirt in the 1950's.

All these polo shirts have a unique character and style, which is why they've made my wish list.


1. Sunspel have been an around since 1860 and are renowned for their great quality polo shirts. Just ask Daniel Craig.

2. Another renowned brand producing quality Polo tees is John Smedley. With their 'best or nothing' ethos,  owning a Smedley polo is pure luxury.

3. Kent Wang is a newcomer for me but I'm hearing amazing things about them from friends and followers.

4. Avon Celli have been producing garments in Milan since 1922. Their old world production techniques continue across the board in the making of these light weight garments.

5. Barbour is a brand everyone would be familiar with. I thought I should put them on my list as I own their polos and love them for price, quality and fit. These work great for my wardrobe and style, so I heartily recommend them.
