A polo's one of those things that almost everyone's got in his closet, but we think ours is kind of special. It's got a cut-and-sew collar supported by a collar band, just like a sport shirt, which means it can stand up on its own or under a jacket. There's a tennis tail that can go tucked-in or not and no branding except for a tiny SM at the lower left hem, embroidered in green. This one's made up in a super-cool heathered pique from Italy that's yarn-dyed for some beautiful color variegation. It's not totally uniform, and that's the point.
