Polo Shirt

Polo Button - White

A  polo shirt is a form of shirt with a collar, a placket neckline with typically two or three buttons, and an optional pocket. Polo shirts are usually short sleeved; they were originally used by polo players during the 1920s[1]

Polo shirts are usually made of knitted cotton (rather than woven cloth), usually a Piqué knit, or less commonly an interlock knit (the latter used frequently, though not exclusively, with pima cotton polos), or using other fibers such as silk, merino wool, synthetic fibers, or blends of natural and synthetic fibers. A dress-length version of the shirt is called a polo dress.[2]

Raglan 3/4 Sleeve

Raglan 3/4 Sleeve - White

A Raglan sleeve is a sleeve that extends in one piece fully to the collar, leaving a diagonal seam from underarm to collarbone.[1]

It is named after Lord Raglan, the 1st Baron Raglan,[2] who is said to have worn a coat with this style of sleeve after the loss of his arm in the Battle of Waterloo.[2] The Raglan sleeve was invented by coat producer Aquascutum for Lord Raglan to allow him room to use his sword in battle. It gave greater movement to the wearer, instead of the usual sleeve head which was prefixed.

The raglan mid-length sleeve is a popular undergarment (worn under the jersey) for baseball teams in MLB.

Long Sleeve

Often known as a Long Sleeve T-Shirt, this is a bit of a contradiction in terms because of the use of ‘T-Shirt’ (which implies no sleeves) makes it inaccurate. However! We all know what is meant but we’ll just use the phrase Long Sleeve to mean a button-less shirt which can be worn in the same overall styling of a t-shirt (so BBQ yes, attending a wedding no).

Long Sleeves tend to be more chic, classical and somewhat a portion smarter the typical t-shirt attire. They can at times be more practical for protection against less warm days and nights, and should you be out for the whole day then a good long sleeve my be your best friend.

Wear with nothing else, or compliment with a lazily buttoned up shirt or loose sweater. Great with smart jeans and dressing shoes for a suave and more gentlemanly look.
