What is a Polo shirt?
Polo shirts are just as comfortable to wear as T-shirts, but have a smarter and dressier appearance with its collar and button down look around the neck.
The history of the polo shirt is actually rooted in sports. It was initially designed as a more comfortable replacement for traditional tennis outfits of the early 20th century, which were long sleeved button up shirts and trousers.
The first polo shirts, or what were then known as tennis shirts, were made using a loosely knit cotton fabric to make it softer and more breathable. Eventually, use of the polo shirt or tennis shirt spread to other sports like polo and golf.
Nowadays, polo shirts are considered a staple of any casual wardrobe for both men and women. It can be easily dressed up for a more sophisticated look, or paired with more casual pieces for relaxing and unwinding.
