From tennis courts to podiums
The short-sleeved polo shirt is a basic in men's wardrobe, a major piece in the history of fashion. It is one of the basics that has spanned the ages and infiltrated all social classes. Born on the tennis courts, the polo shirt for men was invented in the 1920s by a professional player wanting to wear sports clothing that was practical, technical and elegant. White, in pique cotton, with buttons and a collar, it was originally a sportswear piece of course, but also very niche, reserved for a bourgeois and worldly elite. The greatest players have worn the short-sleeved polo shirt, from Roland-Garros to Wimbledon. Sober, banal in appearance, it has largely been worn over time by the streets to end up on the catwalks, becoming an intergenerational piece. We also know it in its rugby version with long sleeves for a look that's a bit sportier but just as elegant.
A timeless piece
Seemingly banal, the polo shirt is a concept in itself that appeals to everyone, from Lady Di to rap groups and punks, including mods. Obviously, like all elitist plays, street movements took it over and twisted it. Straddling sport, preppy chic and trend, it has been an eminent source of inspiration for creators. Of course, casual chic brands have obviously made it a part of their wardrobe, but not only that. More chic than a t-shirt and less formal than a shirt, it has been endlessly reinvented and worn on haute couture catwalks, for both men and women.
The Vicomte A. men's short-sleeved polo shirt, more than ever a story of style!
Vicomte A. made no mistake, offering the polo shirt for men in various models. With a relaxed nonchalance, an elegance tinged with coolness, it can be worn with a total preppy look or worn offbeat for a sportier look. What’s special about the Vicomte A polo shirt? The use of pima cotton for its manufacture. An emblematic material of the brand, pima cotton is a noble material which has the particularity of having fine and long fibers, giving it a particularly soft and fluid appearance, while being very resistant. The Pablo polo shirt, in pique knit enhanced with an embroidered logo on the chest, is available in white, red, beige or navy. The Neon Pleon polo shirt stands out in a two-tone version, in pastel colors, as does the Peters, recognizable by its tricolor striped printed fabric on the underside of the collar, or the Pao, original with its officer collar... and many others. Long live polo!
