Already a favorite among our colleagues at SARTORIALE, terry cloth polo shirts are one of the great iterations of mid-century casual elegance. A class above your regular branded pique shirts, they represent summer leisure done with style.
We love that it’s such a simple piece of clothing, but it clearly has it all: history, practicality, and style. Not to mention all the international icons who were spotted wearing the style with aplomb: Renè Lacoste has made it a sporting garment first, then Sean Connery as James Bond popularized on the screen. Last, but not least, such emblematic figures were among its fans like Aristotle Onassis.
A splendid match with printed swim shorts for the beach or worn in a degagè way with a pair of high waisted trousers.
What're your thoughts about this style? Surely, it’s not for everyone, but in the right context, it’s a really cool summer option. How do you wear yours? Share your fit pics for inspiration.
