Q2 Textilvertrieb wholesale Polo shirt, fashion polo shirt, we are Polo Shirt manufacturer, Polo Shirt importer. In our opinion, a great menswear outfit seamlessly blends dressy elements with casual ones. A tailored jacket with a polo shirt is a great example. Here’s three examples and some tips to pull it off.
1. SOFT SUIT, STRUCTURED POLO
The key to a great suit + polo look is pairing the right suit (lightweight and unstructured) with the right polo (button-down collar, deep placket, slim fit). The button-down collar is probably the most important of those details; it keeps the collar in place and standing upright, visually framing the face.
This block-stripe polo adds a cool sporty touch that off-sets the formality of the suit, creating a look that I can wear just about anywhere.
This tobacco linen suit might be my favorite for summer. I’ve been wearing it for a week straight (as a suit, blazer, and trousers).
I find that lightweight fabrics are very underrated in menswear. Editors and bloggers are always writing about their excitement for F/W fabrics (flannels, tweeds, cashmeres, etc) but this Winter I couldn’t wait to break-out the lightweight goods (hopsacks, linens, silks – more on silk soon).
A brown penny loafer (like these Bass classics) is the most versatile shoe a man can own, in my opinion.
When I’m in a rush and can’t make a decision on footwear, I almost always grab these – whether I’m wearing a suit, jeans, or shorts.
2. CITY CHIC
If you’re wearing a jacket with tailored trousers – tuck your shirt in. Yes, even if it’s a polo. A tucked shirt looks more confident and put-together – it also visually splits your body in proper proportion (accentuating the waistline is the oldest trick in womenswear – it looks good on men too).
3. COUNTRY VIBES
As you may have noticed, I often gravitate toward earthy color palettes (like browns, greens, and rustic oranges), regardless of the season. I think they remind me of life back on the farm…I also think they complement my skin tone and hair color.
I got lucky the day I found this vintage Ralph Lauren polo, from one of his epic Southwestern-print-heavy collections back in the day. It doesn’t have a button-down collar, but it stands fairly well under a jacket.
This suit jacket is mostly silk – what I consider the most underrated fabric in menswear. It’s lighter than linen, breathes just as well, and has a sheen unlike any other fabric, which is great for offsetting textures. We have a great post on men’s silks in the works…
4. BUSINESS CASUAL PROPER
By now you’ve mastered the art of separates: a sports coat and trousers, or two complementary suits mashed-up.
For “business casual” or a smart social event, try off-setting the formality of the tailored jacket with a polo shirt, rather than the expected business shirt.
Similar to look 1, this polo has a deeper 4-button placket and a button-down collar – perfect for under a jacket. The bengal stripes are also a nice nod to the traditional oxford shirt.
It’s sockless season!
Personally, I love the feeling of good leather on my bare feet, but if you’re not ready for the real thing you can try these.
