Menswear Monday: The Rebirth of the Polo Shirt

Your dad may have worn it when you were growing up (and probably still does!), but men’s polo shirts are enjoying quite the sartorial comeback lately, particularly for spring/summer. No longer just for preppy country-club dudes, the modern polo shirt comes in plenty of prints and fabrications that are anything but stuffy or nerdy. Even the classic solid polo shirt, like the Lacoste Classic Pique Polo, has been spotted on some of the most stylish guys as of late.

Paired with lightweight outerwear and slim-fit or straight-leg pants, the refined polo shirt becomes one of those closet staples that bridges the gap between modern and classic.

Below is a sampling of our most stylish men’s polo shirts that are sure to make heavy rotation in your spring-to-summer wardrobe!

Menswear Monday: The Modern Jogger

Somewhere between stay-on-the-couch-all-day and business casual lies a happy medium when it comes to comfy men’s pants. We’re talking about the cool hybrid of the sweatpant and the chino otherwise known as the modern jogger pant. 

Whether you’re pairing it with your favorite t-shirt or taking it up a notch with button-up shirts, the modern version of the jogger is equal parts cool and comfy. If you’re looking for a versatile upgrade to your everyday chino pants or sweatpants, the jogger is definitely the way to go.

Menswear Monday: Business Casual, Updated.

Guys, you may think that mundane Mondays are “business as usual”, but we’d like to invite you to shake up your work week with business casual clothing and shoes that are anything but boring and stuffy! 

For work settings that are more on the laidback side, or if your office partakes in “Casual Fridays”, you can’t go wrong with a great-fitting button-up shirt in either a neutral solid or a subtle print. Pair your button-ups with everyday trousers in a more relaxed fabric like twill or cotton.

Remember: the key to avoiding a sloppy business-casual look is to pay attention to fit. Make sure your shirt shoulder seam sits cleanly right at the shoulders and your pant hem isn’t pooling at the bottom. And yes, it IS worth it to get your workwear basics altered by a tailor if it means the difference between looking casual yet professional and just plain unprofessional.

Menswear Monday: Wear to Work

Whether you work in a super-corporate office setting or in a more laidback environment, dressing sharply for work should always be top of mind. As they say, “dress for the job you want, not for the job you have.”

If you’re more of a corner-office-with-a-view type, a well-tailored black suit is always an essential. Grab a nice wool coat to layer on to and from work. For more business-casual office settings, versatile separates like a grey blazer over dark denim or slacks are key. So are solid men’s dress shirts that fit close to the body but not overly tight.

Stocking your closet with versatile workwear pieces that mix and match well together is really the foundation of a great work-to-dinner wardrobe. It’s all about sticking to neutral tones, timeless fits, but feeling free to throw in a pop of color here and there for interest!

Last but not least, don’t forget the right work shoes! A good pair of classic oxfords or loafers is your best bet for finishing off that highly successful office attire.

Menswear Monday: Sweaters for Every Occasion

Layering is a big component of smart cold-weather dressing, and one of the wardrobe fundamentals for winter layers is the sweater. There are several types of stylish men’s sweaters available for work, weekend and even nights out.

From refined V-neck sweaters to the classic crew neck pullover, stocking your closet with versatile sweaters is a good foundation of any well-rounded winter wardrobe. For more casual days, there’s the comfy and laidback French terry sweatshirt, or perhaps a merino wool cardigan to take your t-shirt-and-jeans look to the next level.

No matter what kind of men’s sweater you go with, remember that fit is key. Avoid a sloppy look by making sure the shoulder seams sit right on the shoulders (unless, of course, it’s a drop-shoulder sweater).

Below are a few of our favorite men’s sweaters to mix and match in your wardrobe this winter and even as we transition into spring:
