Polo Shirt - Shirt Meets T-Shirt
Polo shirts are much more than a t-shirt with collar and buttons. The polo shirt began as a sports uniform for tennis and golf players, with the collar turned upwards to protect the neck from the sun's beams. Today, it is an essential part of any man's wardrobe. The polo shirt’s greatest advantage is its versatility. With a polo shirt and a pair of shorts and sneakers or sweatpants, you look sporty, and with a pair of jeans or chinos you get a casual, yet stylish look for the office. You just need to choose your look of the day.

The History of the Polo Shirt from Sportswear to Everyday Shirt
If you think there is something preppy about polo shirts, you are not mistaken. Polo shirts were invented in the late 1800s when the British upper class began to cultivate outdoor activities such as polo (hence the name) and cricket. A few decades later, a French tennis player named Lacoste saw a need for softer and comfortable clothes for the tennis court, and he designed the first polo shirt as we know it today. Today, polo shirts are still the obvious choice for workout clothes, but also for a day at work or school.
