The ultimate polo shirt

The polo shirt — a classic staple that should be in every man’s wardrobe. With its versatile style, you can easily dress it up or down. No wonder it’s a favourite among many men.

Did you know that the polo shirt was the first to feature a buttoned-down collar? It was invented in the 19th century by polo players who needed to keep their collars from flapping in the wind. The comfortable, breathable fabric is

also spot-on for the sporty action. The polo shirt has come a long way.

Today, it’s championed as a preppy wardrobe staple. At M&S, our modern-day version has the signature button collar, comes in five different colours and is made from super-soft, sustainable cotton — details you’d expect from a premium top. All this heritage and quality for an amazing price too.

Wear with chinos and loafers to pull off a smart-casual look or under a blazer for a novel take on the smart-casual dressing — perfect for weekend lunches at Madinat Jumeirah or sporting activities at the golf club.
