As the name suggests,polo fitted shirts are slimmer than traditional polos and should fit close to your body. Ideally, the sleeves should reach about halfway between your shoulder and elbow (although some companies make them a bit longer).
You’ll want to pay attention to the fabric used, especially in a striped or solid polo shirt. Look for a fabric that’s blend of cotton and polyester to keep it looking sharp and to improve durability. Also, avoid any polo shirts with blended synthetics such as nylon, elastane or spandex – they tend to be less comfortable than all-cotton fabrics and may stretch out more quickly.
In terms of color, choose a polo that coordinates well with your wardrobe and skin tone. For example, if you have black hair and dark complexion, high contrast outfits will work best; if you have blonde hair and fair skin, low-contrast outfits will look better.
The Perfect Fit: Unleashing the Style and Comfort of Fitted Polo Shirts
When it comes to sizing, most polo shirts are made for taller men. If you’re short, you’ll want to consider getting your polo shirts tailored to make sure they don’t end up being too long and bunching up under your blazer. Alternatively, you can opt for a tailored collar on your polo shirt to help it stay in shape and hold its structure better. You’ll also want to look for a shirt that has an interlining on the collar because this will prevent it from flattening out over time.
