THE BEST INVENTION SINCE POLOS WERE INVENTED
Right at the top of the wish list: our new PO:SH. The long-sleeved shirt combines all the advantages of FUNCTIONAL with the features of a polo shirt - with its 3-button placket, sporty buttons, cuffs like a men's shirt and a soft collar. The feel is heavenly light and caressingly soft. An irresistible look.
The FUNCTIONAL PO:SH
The polo shirt is the classic casual garment. It appears more serious and less leisure-oriented than collarless T-shirts, yet expresses a sporty nonchalance compared to the business shirt. A perfect blend, in our opinion ... That's why our new PO:SH, a long-sleeve polo shirt in wool look, is one of the favorites of the pure fall/winter collection.
The history of the polo shirt
The success story of the polo shirt began around the turn of the century in India. Due to the subtropical climate, Indian polo players wore round-cut, hip-length jerseys made of lightweight fabric with airy jodhpurs. French tennis players took up the idea and replaced the top shirts worn in the "white sport" that had been common in the past with functional shirts with buttons and collars made of breathable, comfortable knitted fabrics. The polo shirt was born. Today, it's considered an evergreen in men's fashion: always easy to combine in new ways and ultra-comfortable to wear.
Here are some styling tips:
- Worn under a jacket in the office, it is an excellent alternative to a business shirt.
- The more official the occasion, the more elegant the material should be. Tip: With the PO:SH from FUNCTIONAL-Fabrics you are always right.
- The collar of the polo should always be folded down.
- The polo should be worn loosely over the waistband (not tucked into the pants).
