The polo as a timeless classic!
In the 1920s, French tennis champion René Lacoste was looking for a good alternative to the long-sleeved shirt. The new item had to be elegant, but at the same time sportive and offer enough freedom of movement.
That was the beginning of this timeless classic, stylish because of the polo collar and characteristic because of the short button closure. It has been an indispensable part of fashion for more than 100 years.
Comfort plays an important role in polo shirts, as they were originally designed for sports.
Ledûb has polo shirts in multiple fits and sleeve lengths, designed in cotton piqué and tricot fabrics. The cotton piqué has a slight height-depth structure that gives the fabric a rich appearance. Cotton piqués and tricots are naturally soft and comfortable to wear. This, combined with the ease of maintenance, makes a polo a favorite piece of clothing for men. You wash your polo shirt in the washing machine and put it back on almost immediately after drying!
How to fit
Men’s polo shirts are hipper than ever. They are offered in many colours, materials and fits. When trying on a polo shirt, pay attention to the points below to be sure that your polo fits perfectly:
- If you want to wear the polo shirt over the pants, the bottom of the shirt should reach halfway up the zipper of your pants
- Close the top button of the shirt and make sure there is no more than one finger between your neck and the button
- With a short sleeve polo shirt; stretch your arms and check that the sleeve length is halfway up your chest
How to wear
Polos are easy to combine and suitable for any occasion. The polo collar and the short row of buttons ensure a stylish look that also goes well with semi-formal dress codes.
Go for a sporty, casual look and combine your polo shirt with jeans or shorts. Complete your outfit with a pair of cool sneakers.
For a casual chic look, combine your polo shirt with chinos and a pair of loafers underneath.
