Polo shirts are never out of fashion but are even more in demand as the summer approaches. We are starting to see the classic design reemerge as the winter (finally) departs, after having vastly outstayed its welcome pretty much throughout March and April! Once again, Barbour have stepped up to the mark and we have an exquisite selection of that prestigious company’s polo shirts available for you to purchase today, starting off your Summer ‘16 wardrobe in style.
The polo shirt actually began life as the TENNIS shirt, being popularised via early mass-marketing techniques by Lacoste in 1933. Before this time, players of polo wore long-sleeved Oxford-cloth shirts which, thick and heat-retaining, were not particularly comfortable to wear while playing the physically demanding game. Notably, these early shirts were the first to have button-down collars which kept them from flapping in the wind. Upon discovering Lacoste’s tennis shirt, polo players readily adopted it for use in their own game.
Just like jeans, what originally began as clothing for a specific utilitarian purpose soon began to appear in fashion and the polo shirt became an instant classic. With a timeless quality, polo shirts have retained their place in wardrobes all over the world, being designed and redesigned in ever-varying colourways, textures and patterns. Barbour, as with the rest of their clothing range, are of course at the cutting edge of style and produce a selection of polo shirts that is beyond compare.
There are several polo shirts by Barbour to choose from in our selection. Our favourites include:
Washed Sports Polo
100% cotton of superlative quality is used to fabricate this attractive garment, which is absolutely ideal for the coming season.
Rendered in a deep yet light-filled navy blue or eye-catching, summery Mustard colour, the shirt features the distinctive Barbour shield on the chest and will look perfect teamed with a pair of quality chinos (or even shorts, depending on the weather!)
Produced in the deepest of blue tones, this polo shirt is soothing and cooling, perfect for when things really start warming up.
The collar features a white stripe that is at once subtle and striking, delivering an extra touch of style to what is already a truly elegant piece of clothing, even by Barbour’s high standards.
