Wimbledon 2017: Men’s White Polo Shirt Edit
It may have arrived later than usual, but Wimbledon has finally begun. And rather unusually the 2017 Championships seem to have brought the sun alone with it! While the tennis is obviously the focus of most of our attention, we can’t help but always take note of the player’s attire. So with that in mind and with summer in full swing, here’s some of the best white polo shirts around for 2017.
Fred Perry M12
Website: Fred Perry
We couldn’t really have a Wimbledon white polo edit without first heading to the brand that made it cool. Made in Leicester, the M12 hasn’t changed since it was originally designed by Fred Perry back in the 1950s. Legend goes that a buyer from Lillywhites requested the addition of football team colours to the plain-colour Fred Perry shirt. Thus, the M12 subsequently became the first piece to carry Fred’s signature twin tipping, with the piece taking the brand from sportswear to streetwear. True to the original, we like the two tone in red and black for some retro tones.
ASOS Tipping Collar And Cuff Pique Polo Shirt
If you’re looking for a similar two-tone polo without the price tag, then look no further than ASOS and this Tipping Collar Polo in all-white. Made from a breathable cotton pique, and featuring a button placket, contrast tipping and fitted cuffs, we think a polo of this ilk should be a staple in anyone Joe’s wardrobe – especially in the summer.
Le Coq Sportif Tricolore Polo
Website: Le Coq Sportif
For something on the sportier side of town, this tennis-inspired Tricolore Polo by Le Coq Sportif comes in Le Coq’s iconic colours of blue, white, and red, and is a textbook illustration of the French brand’s tradition. Made of cotton-elastane plated piqué jersey, the polo comes with subtle details such as rectilinear striped cuffs, a collar with a collar stand, and collar tips printed in the brand’s colours. It also bears the traditional ‘Practice’ patch on the left side of the chest.
SELECTED HOMME White Polo Collar T-Shirt
But if you’re a Joe who likes his polos with simplicity, you can’t get more clean-cut that this Polo Collar T-Shirt from SELECTED HOMME available at Topman. Not only is it a bargain, you’re always guaranteed a fresh and high quality garment from the kings of Scandinavian style.
Lacoste Slim Fit Chest Embroidery Piqué Polo
Arguably more synonymous with polos than any other brand, Lacoste were always going to make our list in some form. But we thought we’d go for something different rather than the traditional crocodile block coloured tees. Coming in a slim fit and with taped seams, this Chest Embroidery Piqué Polo is colourful and perfect for summer with embroidery adorning the chest of the polo. Other features include contemporary branding on the sleeve, and we think it’s our favourite white solo of the season.
So there we have it – our Wimbledon-inspired white polo edit for 2017. If you need a pair of sunnies to go with your new polo, check out our Sunglasses Edit for Summer 2017!
