VK’s Favorites: The best Polo shirt ever?

Summer is here; its polo shirt season and you’re a grown man now. That means you expect some things from your clothes especially a classic shirt such as a polo shirt. You don’t want a polo horse, phoenix, bunny or any other monogram/ crest on the chest of your shirt announcing what brand it is and the supposed status that comes with wearing such a shirt. You want something simple and slim fitting. Now if you’re about that swole life, then you’ll run into a common problem where because of the size of your biceps/ shoulders you’ll end up getting a bigger size in a polo shirt (or any shirt for that matter ) that will cover your arms but will also hang down to your knees like a blouse. So now you need something super slim, light, and extremely form fitting yet breathable like an under armor workout top.

Enter Banana Republic’s Luxe-Touch Polo shirt. You read that right fucking Banana Republic, where you dad shops! I went it with a friend and his sister to help him find an interview outfit when I discovered the polo shirt in plane ivory white calling out to me. The first thing you’ll notice is the feel. It’s 100% cotton but it’s the thinnest cotton polo shirt I’ve felt to the touch again the closest thing I could compare it to was an under armor shirt. Also again it was plane front, no company insignia anywhere to be found. Lastly once I tried on the fit was amazing. It was tight enough to show off my muscles without being too long and baggy at the bottom. I tested it out that weekend and was surprised how breathable the shirt was in the hottest conditions during the day. Lastly after washing and drying the shirt is ready to wear with no need for ironing.

If you’re looking for the perfect polo shirt look no further


I was not paid any money or received any compensation from Banana Republic for this post.

    I went to the mall to check this out on your recommendation and I have to agree that it is a really good Polo. It’s a great fit that can show off your physique, it isn’t sloppily long, there are no gaudy logos, and the buttons are perfectly placed just the way I like them. I’ll probably pick up a couple more later this summer.
