Exclusive leisure fashion from BOGNER
Just when you you’re finding it impossible to choose between a t-shirt and a shirt … a third welcome alternative comes along. We’re talking about the BOGNER polo shirt, the classic with short sleeves, a collar and buttons. The shirt’s journey from sportswear to classy leisure classic was a long one and sometimes it was a bumpy ride. Its successful blend of style, comfort and sportiness finally won through – not only on the sports field, but also on all the catwalks of the world.
Once upon a time there was a polo shirt ...
Okay, so the beginnings of this timeless classic may not have been such a fairytale, but they do reach back to colonial times. The origins of the polo shirt go back to the Indian sport of polo. What was once the colonial ruler’s comfortably cut sports shirt, is (once more) the style essential of today. During strenuous polo matches, the subtropical climate of India demanded lightweight and airy cotton fabric. In addition to the iconic collar and button placket, its is the breathable cotton piqué that has remained a crucial characteristic of this garment to this very day. But it is ‘the crocodile’ that is responsible for the worldwide fame and popularity of the polo shirt. Yes, you did read that correctly – the tennis player, René Lacoste, made this sportswear garment socially acceptable and it has been carrying this reptile as its hallmark ever since. ...
Men’s polo shirts are just so stylish
The conservative image is a thing of the past – or is conservative the new ‘cool’? Whichever way you look at it, the polo shirt has been celebrating a style comeback for quite a while! In contemporary combinations, high-quality men’s polo shirts from BOGNER have become the indispensable key pieces of the moment. Talking about contemporary combinations – in contrast to on the golf course – for everyday wear, the polo shirt should never be tucked into the waistband. Furthermore, the collar, which used to be worn turned up to protect the neck, from the point of view of style, is best worn turned down flat.
The BOGNER polo shirt – the height of versatility
Sporty, casual and stylish all at the same time. Polo shirts in cotton piqué are the epitome of ‘smart casual’ and give any summer look an immediate feeling of ease. The colours in the BOGNER men’s collection are as varied as the drinks at a cocktail bar. Slim fit polo shirts in rich shades look superb with pale-coloured or neutral shorts and chinos. Most importantly – only combine the polo shirt with a smart garment! Otherwise, it quickly becomes too much of a good thing. So, go for cool sneakers instead of sailing shoes. During the colder times of the year, wear more subdued colours and long-sleeve versions with matching jeans or smart trousers.
