a long-sleeved polo shirtor regular Oxford button-down is usually the most stylish accompaniment to shorts - see post here. However, there are times when a sportier, short-sleeved polo is more suitable. On the beach, for example, or when playing sports such as the tennis that so widely popularised it.
Buying a polo shirt, though, can be rather frustrating. Most brands, when they decide to produce one, throw out any ideas of quality and cut that they apply elsewhere. Ralph Lauren, despite my recent emotional post, produces some pretty poor polos. They are square in the body, made no better than a £ 10 from Primark, and retain the anachronistic long tail that was useful on horseback but is highly unflattering when most men wear them untucked.
Among the big brands, Lacoste produces probably the best, owing partly to the fact that it uses its own facilities and has its own patented knitting processes - something I discovered during a recent interview with Philippe Lacoste, grandson of René.
But the best polo shirt I have ever worn is made by Orlebar Brown. The British company is fanatical about its materials (as witnessed by its latest version of the best-selling Bulldog swimming trunk) and the polo is no exception. The piqué cotton it uses is lightweight, making it particularly breathable and easy to wear.
