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.

Military fashion was initially popularized during the 60s, and it has made a comeback. Military clothing comes in khaki, green, beige, blues, and olive hues. Patterns tend to mimic service uniforms from all branches of the military. Trench coats, baggy pants, berets, and jackets mostly inspired by the military uniforms of the 20th century are the season’s hottest trend. Military style clothing is a timeless and versatile fashion trend that is worthy of the investment.
Today, everyone is looking to save a few bucks when it comes to clothing care. Taking all your clothing to the dry cleaners can be an expensive venture. However, there are some ways that you can cut back on that bill and care for some of your expensive dress shirts and pants at home.
If there is one thing that Winter does, is making you look forward to Spring. Come the end of February, everyone is entertaining thoughts of warmer weather and lighter clothing. As I was looking at the collection for Spring/Summer 2013, I discovered some looks that might be a “go” or a “no”.
The first is by Dolce and Gabbana. The v-neck, collared shirt looks like some sort of tapestry with the muted colors and people scene. I’ll give it one thing that it does look comfortable. However, the shorts are just all wrong. They have a length that went out in the 70’s and should have stayed out. It kind of looks like they cut off a pair of grey dress pants to make them. I don’t see these particular shorts being very popular.
The second Spring/Summer look on the runway is by Hermes. Both the outfits show that color and patterns are still huge trends for the upcoming year. The grey trousers pair up nicely with the buttery yellow shirt and geometric pattern cardigan in pear green. These shorts by Hermes are a much nicer length and fit. The total looks are also pulled together with great lace-up sneakers.
The last fashion line-up for Spring/Summer 2013 is by Giorgio Armani. The white trousers and neutral leather shoes combine nicely with the slim-fitting taupe knit jacket. It is definitely a sleek and sexy look that is able to take the place of a traditional sports jacket. The vest combo and white trousers that follows is also a nice alternative to the traditional summer suit.
