THE ACE POLO SHIRT
With Wimbledon fever consuming us from today, the timing’s right to refresh your look with a pristine new polo shirt, says menswear editor Ian Wright
The world’s gaze falls upon the All-England Club today as Wimbledon opens its doors to tennis fans from all over the globe. While Roland Garros, Flushing Meadows and Melbourne Park have a relaxed attitude to players’ attire, the All-England Club is dedicated to respecting its history with a strict dress-code of plain white from top to toe. OK, so you don’t need to be quite so rigidly dressed to watch a match, whether from the sofa, a pub, Murray Mount or Centre Court, but considering the polo was invented for playing tennis, it’s definitely an appropriate choice. Pleasingly minimal, its brilliant white tone is likely to remain that way thanks to StayNEW™ technology, which reduces bobbling and keeps clothes looking brighter for longer. Button to the top for Wimbledon-appropriate prep factor. A smashing summer buy for sure.
