Wardrobe Essential

The Long Sleeve Polo

The long sleeve polo shirt is an item that never really goes away, just up and down in the style stakes - and right now it's on the upswing. If you're looking for inspiration, take notes from the film that helped make Richard Gere a star, American Gigolo. 

Aside from being rather underrated, American Gigolo is a film with endless style tips. With Gere looking as stylish as a multi-lingual high class male prostitute should, it's no surprise that Giorgio Armani worked on Richard Gere's costumes.

One of his simpler (and easier to emulate) looks is the one pictured above. Wearing just a long sleeve polo shirt and washed denim, it's a timelessly stylish look any guy will be able to pull off.

As you'll only be wearing two items when you've got this outfit on, you should make sure that both items are of the highest quality.

Which is why we recommend this Drakes polo shirt (£145, Drakes) While it's tempting to go with the white version, that will look far too close to a regular shirt, so try the sky blue version. For denim, you should stick with your darkest navy iterations and team with a pair of white Jack Purcells.
