A long sleeved polo shirt sits on the cusp of the casual wear–tie & jacket divide.

It shares many of a regular shirt’s properties: collar, cuffs, at least a few buttons; however it’s textures & lack of structure on the collar renders it more appropriate to certain settings (a relaxed yet stylish environment) than others (a cocktail party).

Similar to what we’re trying to achieve at Zutiste with our wool bow ties, it stands out a little, however due to its overly formal character. Rather, when worn with a suit it marks you as an individual because it’s difficult to pin down why it’s different.

And the two go together swimmingly: casual wool texture & casual soft collar. Throw on your favourite knitwear & your ensemble is indisputably well put-together.
