The first logo on a polo shirt can be dated back to the 1930s, when father of the polo, Rene Lacoste wore one with a small crocodile embroidered onto it. (The crocodile being his nickname due to his snappy sense of style). While this particular polo was made as a one off for Lacoste himself, as most good fashion trend-setters seem to do, the little croc sparked major hype in no time.
It was then sent straight to the production line, where it has since become an iconic emblem of fashion and sport. Other brands also jumped on the logo hype over the years, including the equally iconic Ralph Lauren.
For many people, having a branded polo shirt is an important factor in choosing clothes. Of course, if that’s your vibe, we say, go for it! But how about those who don’t want a logo plastered all over their polo shirts? Whether a small crocodile or something a lot more in your face. So what are the best polo shirts with no logo?
In contemporary fashion, logos are bigger and bolder than ever before. They represent sports sponsors and have brand names or logos sprawled across the front.
Even the tiny Lacoste crocodile evolved in the early 21st Century, when it added the brand name to the logo. It’s no wonder then that many men are happy to swap the logo shirt for a polo without any branding at all.
There are a few reasons why people are now choosing to say goodbye to the logo and choose a plain polo shirt instead. For one thing, some work places are moving towards more casual dress codes.
A polo might be acceptable within the office environment or at work events, but a polo shirt with a huge brand logo splashed across it? Not so much. Many men want polo shirts that they can wear to work and then out to the pub. Buying multiple polos, some with logos, some with none, can actually be a waste of money.
It makes sense then that many men, would rather invest in plain polo shirts. If they are going to spend the money on a few key polo shirts however, it’s understandable that they might prefer to buy them in various colours, rather than with different logos on. After-all, you’ll get much more versatility and wear this way.
A lot of men also find that logos can be a bit obtrusive and would like options available that simply don’t have them. Neither buying a polo with logos or without is wrong, but for those who do just want a plain shirt, they should be able to find them easily.
