With the recent resurgence of the preppy look in men’s streetwear fashion, the polo shirt is back in the spotlight. The trick is how to make it look fresh, as opposed to a repeat of fashion past. Diesel has managed to do that with the Diesel T-Admiral Short Sleeve Polo Shirt. This navy one, offered at Mainline Menswear, is fabricated in 100% cotton for comfort and breathability. Let’s see how it fares all around! It has the original polo design with the point collar, fitted sleeves, and patch chest pocket, but the Diesel takes the design a step further with the grey woven half-covered button placket and matching pocket bar. The contrasting placket and bar almost gives you the illusion of a tie and pocket square, making the polo look a little on the dressier side, as opposed to sporty. There’s also a cute little insert pocket for a short pencil or pen. Very chic in my opinion! This will give it more versatility in your closet, as compared to some of the other polo style shirts out there. The Diesel T-Admiral Polo is available in several colors including white, navy, and grey. The price range is from $70-$90 USD, which is about average for a designer item. It is also available at several major department stores like Bloomingdale’s and Saks Fifth Avenue, as well as online (like at our friends’ store, Mainline Menswear). This updated polo shirt would look great on its own with your favorite pair jeans, combined with an aviator or motorcycle style leather jacket, or under a grey tweed blazer for the Fall. It’s a winner!
