Welcome to our very first ‘in the spotlight’ post, where we showcase one of the most stylish, wearable and just plain cool items from our fab range. We challenge you to resist…
Let us introduce the Brave Soul Striped Polo Shirt, £14.This smart-casual staple ticks all the boxes for men’s spring style: let us explain.
It comes in bright, uplifting blue – the perfect shade to sweep away the last of the winter cobwebs and get you in the spirit of the new season.
The shirt features a subtle mix of spots and stripes to give you that stylish clashing look without going over the top.
Thanks to its chambray button-down collar, you can easily get away with this comfy polo shirt in semi-formal situations – just team it with a pair of smart dark jeans. Don’t assume it isn’t the perfect choice for your casual wardrobe too, however. A stylish printed pocket and short sleeves mean it’ll work just as well when you’re out with friends or relaxing around the house, and the 100 per cent cotton fabric means it’ll keep you feeling cool and comfortable.
The polo shirt is a great cold-weather and transitional piece as the higher neck and collar add that extra bit of coverage, while the lightweight fabric makes it the perfect base layer underneath sweaters. What’s more, this classic style has shown no sign of falling out of fashion since its introduction to mainstream menswear after its creation in 1926, so it’s time to get involved.
Just when you thought this polo shirt couldn’t get any better, let’s talk about stripes. According to a recent article from the men’s style gurus at Fashion Beans, your torso is often the most successful place to integrate stripes into your outfits, and we certainly agree. The thin lines on this Brave Soul polo aren’t too in-your-face, but give a flattering impression of width across the chest while the fitted shape ensures no extra bulk is added to your stomach area (the perfect trade-off post-Christmas overindulgence).
