How to Dress for a Game of Polo, Like a Gentleman!
Polo, unlike many other sports, is associated with a calm and composed atmosphere. It has even been referred to as ‘the sport of kings’. It has no rigid dress code but is normally best attended in smart casual. However, some polo events are charity events and require a slightly more formal look. All the same, at Society Gent, our intention is to dress you like a king to have you feeling like a king!
How to Choose what to Wear
Consider the Occasion or Cause Behind the Polo Event
Simple events have no social requirements, and one may dress in smart casual. However, more recently, many polo events support charitable causes, and these require that one dresses up more formally. For such an occasion, we offer limited edition, handmade, 100% cotton poplin, pocket squares featuring jockey and horse motifs in beautiful colours. One of these will surely fit the occasion and is bound to make a gentleman stand out. Additionally, a skinny gold tie clip to fasten the tie to your shirt is a great idea considering that polo is an outdoor event.
Consider the Location of the Event
Polo events in huge cities tend to draw spectators who strive to be trendy during such events unlike events in a more suburban setting. Therefore, it is wise to dress like a gentleman, classy but composed.
Consider the Weather
If the weather is sunny, go for pale colours for your clothing, and brighter colours for your accessories. Bowties are a great way to add colour to your outfit, and tartan and plaid are great patterns pick for a polo event. If the weather is dull, brighter colours for your clothing are more appropriate, with dull colours for accessories.
During half-time, spectators are allowed onto the pitch for ‘divot stomping’. Expect compliments, and take them like a gentleman!
