From sports to the city 

The men's polo shirt was invented in the 1920s by a professional tennis player who wanted to wear a practical, technical and stylish sportswear. Its characteristics : a simple cross-over piece, between the cool t-shirt and the chic shirt, made of piqué cotton, with buttons and a collar.

The men's polo shirt was originally a sportswear piece reserved for the wealthy bourgeois elite. The various fashion movements, up to the catwalks, have appropriated it, making it definitely an intergenerational piece.

A timeless and universal piece

Straddling the line between sport, preppy chic and trendy, the men's polo shirt is definitely a staple in the men's wardrobe. Since its creation, it has been borrowed by a number of fashion movements with a strong style, from rock bands to rap groups to punks, not to mention the jet set and movie stars. It appeals to young and old alike, to the traditionalist as well as to the fashion conscious, to the elegant as well as to the cool.

More chic than a t-shirt and less formal than a shirt, the men's polo shirt is a great source of inspiration for designers, a blank canvas on which they can put their stamp. It has been endlessly reinvented and is now worn on catwalks by both men and women.
