7 Bold Designer Polos

Date: 2021-05-07
The polo shirt, known for being safe and reliable, is no longer always a simple sartorial choice. Some of our most refined polos for spring come from the world’s top luxury designers, and offer unparalleled comfort and elegance, along with exuberant patterns and pops of colour. When René Lacoste introduced the first polo shirt, it was actually a reaction against the established tennis uniform of long-sleeve shirts –– one might say some of these designs are a bold step away from your classic piqué. But in the end, it’s all really about one thing: how good it makes you feel. Here are seven of our favourite designer polo shirts.

Moncler Cotton Pique Polo

Show that you’re a menswear maverick in this stunning polo shirt from Moncler. The rarified blue brings a touch of sartorial elevation while the tri-colour inlay keeps to the brand’s signature look. This pure cotton piqué polo shirt combines a sleek silhouette with bright colour to show off any personality.

Thom Browne Cotton Jersey Polo

Bold colour isn’t your thing? Not to worry. This polo from Thom Browne is a low-key piece in your wardrobe that instantly elevates casualwear. In heather gray, this refined style is sure to complement an array of ensembles without making you fade into the background – especially with some subtly-placed yet still apparent signature Thom Browne branding.

Z Zegna Silk-Cotton Jacquard Polo

Z Zegna's polo features a retro jacquard composition with a diamond patterned texture that is nonchalantly adventurous.
