A polo shirt is one of the most versatile shirts any well-dressed man can own. A lot of this versatility can be credited to its ability to be paired with clothes ranging from trousers and shorts to chinos and jeans. Smarter than a t-shirt and more comfortable than a buttoned shirt, the polo has become men’s ultimate ally and a wardrobe staple. Now, more than ever this year, is when the polo truly shines out as the smartest piece of clothing as an all-weather style staple – come rain, shine or cold.
Every man should have a selection of polo shirts in his wardrobe for a wide range of occasions – from sporting attire to leisurewear. If you are just buying your first pair or looking to refresh your wardrobe, start with this list of five must-have polo shirts for guys who know this is a classic style.
SOLID POLO SHIRT
A champion of smart-casual dressing, a solid polo shirt portrays a clean, sophisticated profile that is equally appropriate for work as it is to go shopping at the mall. Look out for minimalist detailing – such as the twin-tipped collar and cuffs that go a long way in highlighting your look. Mufti’s signature Airborne branding embroidered on the left chest lends this polo an elevated, exclusive characteristic.
GRAPHIC PRINT POLO SHIRT
When it comes to casual dressing, a bold graphic print goes a long way in expressing your personality. From abstract geometric print to hand-drawn sketches, there is something for everyone that serves as an extension of your mood. Mufti’s graphic print polos strive to bring forth the personalisation of graphic tees to the timeless style of polo with a touch of sophistication. Our personal favourite? Mufti’s bird polo shirt with a portrait of a kite that boldly and confidently celebrates all things Mumbai and will make you stand out in a crowd.
WEEKEND POLO SHIRT
Give your weekend wardrobe a refreshing change with Mufti’s polo shirts that ooze with sophistication and class – perfect for everything from a family celebration to a cocktail party. An elegant polo in a sea of button-down shirts is a great way to get heads turnings on your next weekend out. From minimalist geometric prints to timeless design motifs, Mufti’s weekend polo shirts are an authentic expression of sartorial aesthetics in an easy-to-wear menswear staple.
ATHLETIC POLO SHIRT
Stay true to the sporting heritage of the polo with an athletic polo shirt that is equal parts good looks and equal parts comfort. Beyond the golf course and tennis court where polos are already a dressing staple, a sporty polo shirt is a great option for when you are going for a casual stroll or sweating it out at the gym. Look out for the embroidered badging and bold colours, like on this Mufti polo, to ensure that your styling game is always top-notch.
TEXTURED POLO SHIRT
When choosing a polo, the only thing more important than “How good does it look?” is “How good does it feel?”. While all Mufti polos are crafted from pure cotton for optimal comfort, a few signature pieces stand out with a differentiated fabric and texture. From cotton pique to popcorn-textured cotton, these fabrics lend your polo a touch of luxury that everyone can see but only you can feel.
