A polo shirt is a wardrobe staple, recently the resurgence of the polo's rough-and-tumble cousin, the rugby shirt, has gained popularity in the Vintage community. Another twist on the classic is the '70s style polo shirts—the kind with retro collars and striping on the sleeves. We'll admit these clingy knits are slightly tougher to wear than a thick cotton rugby—they leave nothing to the imagination—but if you've got the upper body to pull one off, nothing is cooler.
Tuck it into a pair of equally right-now pleated pants. For an even more dressed up spin, wear one under a slim-cut suit. (They're also a bit more forgiving this way.) If you want something more casual for your weekend adventures, channel Jude Law in The Talented Mr. Ripley and wear it with a pair of off-white jeans or chinos, loafers, and classic tortoise sunglasses. Or, if you manage to escape work for a warm-weather vacation, you could make Armie Hammer in Call Me By Your Name your inspiration, and wear the shirt with above-the-knee shorts and canvas sneakers.
