S1E2: Polo Shirts

s1e2carla

I used to hate polo shirts. For reasons aesthetic (they simply look too preppy), ancestral (members of my tribe haven’t exactly been welcomed into country clubs), and practical (I don’t even know how to ride a horse).

But then I found an old Lacoste polo at the thrift store (similar to Carla’s above). And truth be told, I like it. Why? It’s a toss-up. Either because it only cost a dollar, or perhaps because it is beat up, thinning, riddled with holes, and a men’s. And as a rule, vintage is almost always better than new, men’s shirts almost always better than women’s.

However, upon some heavy polo research (because of an accidental Wikipedia click I now know all the rules to the sport), it turns out there are a bevy of designers out there not only making new polo shirts for women, but breaking the mold and redefining what a polo shirt is. Whether patterned, textured, deconstructed, modern, or reimagined, these 16 polos will make you do a double-take. (Kind of like seeing a Jew at a country club.)
