Summer Etiquette : The Polo Etiquette Read  -  General Style 65 Comments

JKISSI : In the midst of layering up with scarfs and sweaters during the previous winter, questions were  directed at us  by readers curious about how our Summer looks would pan out. Now we’re here, presently knee deep in our Summer Etiquette post series, amongst the sweltering weather. The only piece that has been myself and Travis’s “haven piece” to beat out the weather, besides a plain t-shirt, has been the polo (also known as the “tennis shirt”). A common misconception is that the term ‘polo shirt’ comes from the popular brand Ralph Lauren, but it actually derives from the sport of polo.

Although the polo shirt is discussed here as a strictly Summer item, it can also be transitioned into a great Fall layering piece by throwing a nice tweed blazer on top, giving it a touch of casual with class.  The selection of polo shirts can vary from sleeve length to material, tucked in or out (but you can wear it however you feel comfortable doing so). Once again, here we have an item that, as years have passed, has been taken out of it’s traditional function of being worn solely by polo players as sporting attire in the 1800s and has morphed into a current American prep staple.

Fit Description : On one of the hottest days in New York City a pima cotton polo was probably the best choice to go with because of its breathable cotton and soft feel.  In this weather it’s very difficult to wear 14 oz. raw denim jeans without passing out after walking a two block radius. In general, the mission would be to actually wear in one of my raw denim jeans to the fading stages of these jeans. Since that wasn’t possible, these GAP Selvedge Jeans were found and bought for under $20. They are a nice light wash which has allowed me to make a change versus the current denim selection in my wardrobe.

Location : Harlem , NY -(Hamilton Heights) Sugar Hill section ( West 135th-155th ) Not only am I a fan of the brownstone architecture, but the history that runs rampant in this particular area of Harlem. During the Harlem Renaissance influential individuals from W.E.B Du Bois to Langston Hughes called this area home.

Friends : No stranger to this site and a good friend of ours, fellow Bronx resident, photographer/stylist and master of ‘accessories are a necessity’, here is Kadeem – another 20-something-year-old of our generation looking to express his artistic view on the world. If you happen to follow our tumblr you have definitely seen his pictures pop up from time to time.

Pictured above are players playing polo.

The first pique tennis shirt that was mass produced was created by French tennis champion Rene Lacoste in the 1920s after being fed up with tennis attire that was not comfortable. In 1927, Lacoste sewed a small crocodile logo on the left breast of the shirt. After retiring from tennis in 1933, Lacoste joined with Andre Gillier to market his tennis shirts with the well-known crocodile logo in Europe and North America. The term “polo shirt” dates back to the late 1800s at the Hurlingham Club in Buenos Aires. – Kayla Layne Crawford

    I love my small yet great collection of polos. The fit on the ones here are right on point. I really like how Kadeem can manage to layer so many wrist accessories and still make it look clean and well put together. Keep these posts coming!

    @TRM: Got it from the GAP store in manhattan they had various sizes left but only inseam of 30″ – you should call around and see -

    @sssence: Thanks Nicholas – you’re so right I always told kadeem that he pulls it off so effortlessly with so many wrist accessories and still comes off as smooth.

    Beautiful shot by the fire hydrant, nice work Rog! Also, I’m seriously loving the vintage briefcase and the loafers. Question, where did you find the YSL briefcase? Fisch for the Hip?

    Great! The denim jeans goes well with you and perfect for summer. I still envy that vintage YSL portfolio. A rare gem indeed. Kadeem is with it as well as. Nice color on his polo. Good day to SE.

    P.S. You’ve got to make me some of those Kente bracelets, or at least a DIY post. Africa!

    Great post, I need to get some new polos. What do you think of the Ralph Lauren ones? I saw Tobi Babajide in a Madbury lookbook (I think Joshua was in it as well, looking great as usual) in a RL polo with a massive logo and done to look like an actual polo player’s team shirt. Opinions?

    lmao look at k.john! Great post guys, this has been my summer staple for 2010. If i’m not wearing a polo, i’ll throw on a henley with the sleeves up. The weather has been severe these pass weeks and its not that easy to find the right item to be comfortable and still look clean. i’m a Rugby fan, J.Crew, and also Banana Republic. the thrift is my best friend also ;)

    nice choice of color on the polo. I have to experiment with colors on the polo’s so I don’t go out lookin’ like a light bulb on a tree branch. and as much as you preach about tailors i finally realize with your gap selvage denim that a tailors could greatly increase my clothing options…

    Nice…
    In a heat wave like this one, i’ve really been scratching my head like “Wait, what do you wear in the summer again!?!” Polos are a dope choice
    Everything seems to be jumping out in Brooklyn, but you know i am trying hard to make this a Uptown summer… So its cool to see a nice Sugar Hill shoot… Its looks beautiful…
    And shoutout to Mr. Rog Walker! I didn’t know you knew him. He’s a great dude, and the photos look great! They definitely have his touch… He created the website for my mentoring program…

    I must say in this post you and Kadeem are killing the accessories…The rings are def. a great touch to make the outfits you have something serious. I must agree with the current mis-conception that most people have “Polo” confused for the Ralph’s brand is something of a saddening fact of some of our generation. Even thoughs younger than we, have that mis-conception stuck in their heads and I feel sad that they have been lead astray. SMH Oh well, that is why us who are in the light guide those who aren’t. I think that might be a little to deep when referring to garments, but so be it. Haha I need for people to realize that appearance and the background of it is very much traditional in the since that we as a people must uphold those vintage and current styles up. I think after following you and Trav for this past year or so has opened my eyes to that. And, I really must thank you. Truly. No gas man.

    I have been intrigued with you guys for quite some time now. I just had to comment on the polo. I like the way you incorporated the jeans. Being that I am from tx. I don’t think anyone could survive wearing jeans with the heat and humidity that we experience very often during the summer. Very creative


  • Shane

    Love polos but sometimes it seems like you can’t find a good trad styled polo. Love to hear what brands you guys would suggest checking out. Noticed the Banana Republic but where else should we be looking?


  • ANTHONY

        posted on July 13 , 2010 :

    i love the use of the polo in these 2outfits. the gray polo with the black accessories and shoes worked very well, as did the use of a burgendy with dark denim. these looks are simple and easy, yet still show you have a sense of style. polo shirt wise i love J Crew and Banana Republic, and when i have the money Lacoste and RL Polo. i know you guys are in nyc, but if you take a trip outeast or upstate to the outlets, they usually have some great deals on stuff. keep up the good work guys

    brotha Josh I had fun shooting with you and Rog man…thanks for the opportunity bro. I barely wear polos like I told you before. However, talking with you about it made me realize I should add more to the collection of two that I have lol. It’s theeee perfect staple item a man should have in his wardrobe

    Josh,

    This is my first comment on your blog, which is as insightful and inspiring. I want to say that I been a bit adamant about looking at different blogs since I want to build a unique identity on mine. The quality of the pictures are great as usual. The use of polo (the item, not the brand) has been in the wardrobe of man for decades, thus is a classic piece on men’s wardrobes. I’m feeling the serenity of your outfit. But the undershirt underneath looks contrived. The addition of the black belt and loafers with the classic YSL briefcase is a nice touch. I won’t be surprise if people get a bit confuse when you indicate that your Gap jeans are tailored, something as “radical” is not seen in Middle America, only a man who knows about style, is quite familiar with the word. I love Kadeem’s look, the color combination and fit is great.

    Thank for putting up great work for the whole world to see,

    Jimmy

    Great post once again bro, I might be thinking too much over here but I feel/appreciate the fact that you highlighted the polo by choosing one of your “less exciting” ones to keep the focus on the polo shirt in general, and not just the one you are wearing in the post. if that was the logic, kudos to you, if not, kudos regardless. SE UP! as usual

    @DC: Hey sir. Yes basically was a good vintage find and haven’t seen something similar from YSL specifically at all – more like a shot in the dark that landed me a gem piece bag.

    @Unyime Akpanudosen: Thanks Unyime the jeans really were I probably picked them up while heading out the house on those hotter days much more than any other pants I have currently. You know I have a upcoming post on the kente cloth bracelet for all the inquiries we have been getting email/comment wise have to inject some of our own culture into our outfits creating a different spin in our outfits.

    @TeoV: Hey teov thanks – I could imagine in Milan you would wear Lacoste strutting around all cool I remember you wearing them during my hb days – says a lot.

    @Tom: Thanks Tom – I think the one that Tobi was wearing in the madbury lookbook was great depending on your taste I would rather have a polo that is loud in its pattern/design that the actual big logos on the shirt- not taking away from his outfit he pulled it off very well. I guess it has more to do with ‘different strokes for different folks’

    @Lowhency: Thanks sir. – You would have to do some out and about running around to really find some wrist accessories that are worth while. I assumed your in the NYC area get into those thrift stores and don’t be too shy to stop at street vendors who are doing some creative items – like for ex I always stop if I see something that catches the eye and ask about their availability and such because some of them don’t come back to the same spot.

    I got one of my rings from a street vendor around the west village – and now I try to revisit the spot and she is never there anymore.

    I’m a V-neck person myself but can respect people that wear the polo shirt neatly; with something other than cargo pants. Polo shirt are versatile like many pieces of clothes have become over time. Just like a polo you can slip a blazer or a cardigan over a V-neck and pull off that professional look.
    N I too like Kareems beads…he wears then so neat; they’re like eye candy for me lol.
    Nice post like always!

    N I agree with everyone above…the YSL briefcase is an awesome piece. I’ve been looking for a nice briefcase, but unfortunately I’m on a budget. Although I did find a leather n suede bag in a thrift shop in Harlem for $20.

    Finally someone who understands fashion! These outfits look great and I really think it is because of the shirts they are wearing. They look good, for starters, but also look great with each of the outfits and I really think there are a ton more options that would still look great with these shirts. Keep up the good work!

    I still very much appreciate those bracelets. Once i learned you guys treat them like ornaments and they have stories of significance it was worth digging all over again.
    Polos are like one of my favorite summer goto. The maroon 4 button polo I appreciate a little more because it is a great alternative to v-necks when you decide you want to go somewhere that discriminates against t-shirts.

    Random style question, what do you guys think about places in the city that enforce strict dress codes but tend to be looking for something more-so along the lines of a urban-casual-church-outfit?

    @Neef: Kadeem makes this post what it is with his accessories and charisma definitely immediate family of SE. Henleys, grandads, and tees are great for Summer you’re totally right on that

    @unitedstyle: Really is – although seen as a more casual piece the button on the collar itself gives off a different type of vibe from the usual traditional polo.

    @Aaron Christian: Thanks a lot sir. All props goes to Rog Walker the photographer who shot the majority of these pictures he’s so ambitious about taking photographs and we’ve been around a lot of photographers and we take pictures ourselves.

    Sounds good though.

    @Skip: Thanks Skip!

    @Reggie: Lol Reggie we don’t preach the action of going to the tailor just to take up space on the page it really does assist your outfits in the perfect way as far as fit. If the fit is off then you have some problems lol

    @Yih: Kadeem’s outfit consist of a topman polo – levis cut off shorts and ralph lauren loafers

    @Coldsun: That definitely happens even more so you gravitate towards clothing that will just keep you cool in the intense summer heat – Can’t lie here Brooklyn is the place to be when it comes to events/festivals etc a lot of young individuals out there trying to make things happen and I respect that. Yes dawson its a very small world Rog does great work and his passion for it inspires me with everything we do with Street Etiquette – good guy overall.

    @TRM:

    No problem at all here is the style number for the jeans
    751501-00

    Released in spring of 2010
    Should still be able to find them
    good luck with the search let me know how that goes.

    @will:

    They’re prefaded jeans sir.

    @David W. Albert:Thanks David – accessories play a immense role in your outfit it can spice things up just by adding little details here and there – and the best thing about rings/bracelets/etc they’re great conversation starters for example someone would ask me ‘where did I get them’ ‘what do they mean to me’ which I always have no problem answering in detail.

    @Alex: Thanks Alex – I never have received blisters from wearing shoes with no socks maybe if the shoe was slightly tighter for example maybe .5 too small I could imagine on that would pan out. I do loads of walking day to day and never experience splinters on my feet for the most part just keep them smelling good with some foot powder and slight lotion and ready to trek around the world lol.

    @Ashley: Thank you Ashley – yeah especially darker shades of indigo/denim these are pretty light in color and material so it wasn’t too bad to walk around in those highly humid NYC summer days here.

    @Shane: Other than the obvious Ralph Lauren polos / Tommy Hilfiger although his newer stuff doesn’t get too much they produce some pretty nice trad polos. If I want something just plain with ribbed sleeve cuffs I just go to uniqlo can’t beat $20.00 for one polo etc. Personally I like my polos to either be plain colors or some a little eccentric with asymmetrical patterns and cuts in the colors so I’m always on the hunt for vintage tennis shirts – polo shirt good term to type in eBay by the way. J.Crew has some nice polos also should check the site out

    @ANTHONY: Hey Anthony thanks for the comment on the site – you’re totally right and the polo I’m sporting is actually a more light indigoish blue than gray but the pictures post processing would give off that effect – no problem. Yes we have heard of places like Woodbury Commons outlet in Newburigh, NY I believe correct me if I’m wrong – definitely some steals up there.

    @Kadeem J.: It was a pleasure for me man – lol ( I love the humility in our conversations even in person lol ) you showed up and completely dismantled the post man – thanks again bro.

    @Julia: Thanks Julia and I highly recommend to follow Kadeems blog in addition.

    @Jimmy: Thank you sir always good to hear good feedback from readers especially people who have their own web platform they’re trying to develop. When we first started this site we really wanted it to be like no other out there which took some time to come to fruition but with time and hard work everything came together – just hang in there if you really want to take it serious. I have a white undershirt under a polo I’m quite perplexed on how that is ‘contrived’ it was a 105 degree day sweating will ensue so a white undershirt and the first button open on the polo was as functional as functional gets lol.

    @wale: That’s rather hilarious because that was part of the notion I have other polo shirts which are quite busy in design which could work out as well, but thought I would take a step in the more classic direction – stripping away the piece to its basic appearance to make things much more understandable from all aspects. Respect.

    @Makyra: Thanks – you’re totally right can definitely dress it up maybe not the most formal outfit but it can definitely be put on with a light sports blazer and some nice chinos

    @Philip Green: Thanks a lot Phil hopefully I can find something equally as nice or much nicer – been on the look recently.

    @Mike: Thanks Mike like anyone we’re students of fashion but more in depth and conscious with the style factor of things a bit more intimate and personal than fashion. I would refer to fashion as what is occurring on the outside scheme of things when style is what happens on the inside.

    @Lizzy: Thank you !

    @Milly: Thanks sis appreciate it ! soon enough trust me –

    @Jayar Moten: Thanks – yup everything has some sort of meaning or significance it’s your part to tell the story whether its something from a thrift shop or a item your Grandfather passed down to you –

    You would have to rephrase that question Jay kind of confused on what exactly you are asking.
    Are you referring to school/work? what do I think about them all depends could work under their standards and still look pretty good I would think.

    Joshua and Travis i love every thing you guys are doing, especially this sartorial aesthetic you guys have recently possessed the only thing im not happy about is the fact that you guys totally departed from the street wear, i remember when you guys used to wear jordan, pf flyers, claes, now you guys are on this dandy hype not that there is anything wrong with it but i would love to see you guys stay true to your roots and bring back some influence that got you started from the beginning into your new found dandy style. Peace and love Marc

    to marc^^

    Ive seen Josh, and to a lesser extent Trav in there jordan/streetwear days and even then you could see there style evolve slowly into a 3sixteen esque upscale streetwear, im guessing they developed the dapper ” hype” from there surroundings and inspirations from the past. And hey you never know i bet these brothas still rock relaxed fits now and then when things get hectic, keep up the good work guys doin it big.


  • JKISSI

        posted on July 26 , 2010 :

    @marc: Hey Marc – thanks for the good words my brother. I think you need to a draw distinctive line on what ‘dandy’ hype really applies to. Back then in our HB days we were 16-17 years old in High School the thing is you grow up and see different inspirations I personally felt like ‘streeetwear’ specifically there was only so much you could do now currently you see these same brands borrowing menswear staples and applying it to their brands (ie Supreme , etc) – If you look at my jungle boot post that aesthetic there isn’t ‘dandy’ hype – jeans/boots/fatigue army jacket it’s what I like to wear its a combination of influences (Prep/Workwear/Urban/etc) – we still apply streetwear into our style but it’s in a whole different way not as obvious but the discreet basics still apply. We’re in no way saying dress like us on this blog – what we’re doing is expressing our own personal style and think everyone should in their own different way.We mix all of our influences and ball it into our own.

    @hb: Hey, – Thanks man surely will. Thing is we evolved sartorially with years the majority of HB people probably haven’t been dressing in that aesthetic before coming in contact with the forums – but growing up in NYC as a adolescent sneakers/tee/hoody/etc was the norm for us.

    That shows you though – we still wear 3sixteen with no problem because they’re providing menswear that’s what I take liking to – jordans and nikes are still in my room and worn when I have to show up someone on the basketball court lol. When you say sneakers there’s a million different type of silhouettes that can apply to any style really – something more sleek/casual is what I usually go for. If you remember we moved to wallys/desert boots even on our HB days before a lot of people were comfortable with it there where now its sort of the norm – the more clean refined street wear look I think a lot of people evolved to which is cool.

    Sorry for the babbling fellas.

    Dig the post. The black/dark grey (green) selvage Naked & Famous jeans are perfect for the summer as well. The fit is spot on the they’re a super light weight. Keep it up.

    in love with the vintage YSL bag!
    the $20 Gap jeans look surprising ly good, altho i wonder what you meant when u said tailored (altered in length, or tapered as well?)

    should have included kadeem’s fit details as well-wondering where he got that button down polo and woven leather belt?

    The classic polo shirt still looks great under an over coat as we move into the colder winter months..
