Pop quiz time: What do Ryan Gosling, Roger Federer, Tiger Woods, and Rami Malek have in common? If you answered, “They all look amazing in a polo,” congrats—you’re correct! Yes, a polo shirt is one of the most understated yet stylish ways for any man to look his very best in the summer months. All you have to do is choose the right one for you.
Allow us to make a suggestion: the Supima cotton performance polo shirt from Brooks Brothers.
This sharp shirt fits slim through the midsection, giving anyone who wears it a trimmer, taller-looking silhouette. (Plus, with where the sleeves land, it shows off just the right amount of bicep.) And don’t even get us started on how it feels. Supima cotton—an ultra-rare strain that’s only grown in the southwestern United States—is made of fibers that are 50 percent longer than the fibers of traditional cotton. The result is a fabric that’s the height of luxury: softer, more breathable, and all-around more comfortable. Supima also holds up to the test of time longer. A shirt made out of the stuff will withstand far more wash-and-dry cycles than a standard cotton one.
Oh, and this polo is also available in a whopping 23 eye-catching colors. (One neat twist: the folks at Brooks Brothers eschewed plain naming convention in favor of fittingly fun names. A few standouts include Rust, Peach, Wine, Golden Haze, and—our favorite—Coral Blush.) Pair it with jeans. Wear it to the beach. Throw it on under a suit. (Hey, it’s 2019; the only style rule left is that there are no more style rules.) If you’re looking for a go-to summer shirt to buy in bulk, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better option.
