The craze for knitted polo shirts

Knitted polo shirts are all the rage at the moment, although maybe not so perfect in a heatwave they are a great addition to your British and abroad summer wardrobe.

With its roots being in activewear and 1920s tennis you can see its traditional style is still a great look. Its soft collar and trio of buttons are instantly recognisable and brands like Lacoste and Fred Perry have made it their key piece.

But there is a new look on the block, the slightly more modern style of the knitted polo giving a mid-century summer aesthetic which is on trend right now.

These new styles of polo are available in a variety of knitted yarns from silk to cashmere, depending on when and where you want to wear it choosing the right cloth is a key decision, might be worth discussing with your tailor.

The knitted polo is thicker than a T-shirt but lighter than an oxford button-down, making it perfect for the variation of the British summer.

There isn’t just the new knitted fabric for the updated polo shirt there is also the updated styles, from no buttons to more of a V-neck as well as long-sleeved, full button-down shape and a huge variety of colours

This is a trend we definitely think you should be jumping on because these knitted polos will see you through your spring, summer and autumn wardrobes.
