- Mens Polo Shirts
- History of
During the late 19th century in England, a clothing designer by the name of John E. Brooks (the oldest men’s clothier in US History) was at a polo match when he was first introduced to the garment that players wore. He fell in love with the long sleeve polo shirt style and quickly created his own. His men's polo made its first appearance in the world in 1896.
The modern golf shirt or short sleeve men's polo shirt that we know today was made popular by a famous French tennis player in 1933, who donned a rolled-up sleeve polo shirt and decorated the left chest with his signature embroidered logo: a small crocodile. This style would change the course of men's polos, and from this point on the polo shirt would be widely adopted by college sports teams. This informed a new style in the fashionwear industry called sportswear.
In this day and age where men's polos and sportswear are highly popular, you’ll find anyone from school children to Kanye West and high fashion models rocking this tried and true classic style.
