A polo shirt is a classic piece of attire which has not only spanned the generations but has also stood the test of time. A polo shirt is in essence a cross between a shirt and a t-shirt. It provides a smart but casual look, and provides great protection and comfort with its collar design. In general they come with either a two button or a three button placket. Due to their versatile nature, being both suitable for smart and casual occasions, they have become incredibly popular. Today there are dozens of brands that produce polo shirts, but three of the most prominent designer brands that stand out above the rest include Penguin, Lyle and Scott and Ralph Lauren. Here we discuss the polo shirt range of these three stalwarts of mens fashion.

With summer in full swing, there is no shortage of celebrities hitting the Red Carpet. This week, a few of Hollywood’s most famous men have been out and about, showing off their jacketed fashion sense.
First up is Matt Damon, who was at the New York premier of his new Sci-Fi flick “Elysium”. Matt looks great in this monochromatic suit and button-down shirt. The different tones of black give it some definition, along with the black leather belt. I also love the half-rimmed glasses in a stainless steel grey. He could have even pushed the envelope a little further by matching the glasses with a fancy, steel Emporio Armani watch. And where, pray tell, could he find a wide collection of mens luxury watches all priced below the RRP? Well, the Branded Watch Shop is a great place to start, Matt!
Next, is Hugh Jackman who arrived at the London premier of “The Wolverine” in a sleek white Audi Spyder coupe. Even though it is almost impossible to make Hugh look bad, his simple navy suit with the open-neck white dress shirt pales in comparison to his sweet ride!
Last, but not least, is Howie Mandel who is posing on the Red Carpet for “America’s Got Talent”. For anyone who has ever seen Howie’s stand-up comedy act live, you know that he is known for his uniqueness. That quality is evident in the outfit that he has chosen for this event. Howie’s black trousers and wing-tipped oxford-style ankle boots are offset by the jacket that is a little like a baseball style with the grey sleeves and striped knit cuffs and collar, but also almost a mandarin collar style denim suit jacket. The red accents around the pockets, lapel, and belt buckle just go along with all that is unexpected about Howie Mandel. What’s lacking however is the undershirt, which boringly matches the jacket.
