Polos are now one of the most favourite apparels of men. It was originally designed for tennis players to wear while taking part in tennis games. So, it is also called as tennis shirt and golf shirt. Polos come in a placket style, with two or three buttons, and an optional pocket.
Polo shirts are more easy to wear as they are usually made of knitted cloth. As it was designed for tennis players, it was imperative that these garments should provide the best comfort to its wearers. Till the advent of polos, tennis players used long white full sleeve shirts that caused them many problems during play. One was that the rolled up sleeve would usually come down often, and the tucked in shirt would pull out as the player would stretch. These all hindered ease of play and comfort of the wearer.
As an alternative to the cumbersome tennis whites, Rene Lacoste, a tennis player himself, designed a white, short-sleeved, loosely-knit pique cotton shirt with a flat, protruding collar, a buttoned placket, and a shirt-tail longer in back than in front. Thus, with this design the rolling down of sleeves was solved, the long tail prevented the polo from pulling out of the trousers or shorts and the material was more comfortable as it was breathable and also was highly durable.
From then on, the popularity of polo shirts was on the rise and its application was found in other sectors as well. The best thing about polos is that it can provide a casually formal look to the wearer and it can easily cater to a wide variety of needs. Now, it has been adopted and universally accepted as the standard golf attire, and many clubs and golf courses require players to wear golf shirts as a part of their dress code.
