Solid colors, stripes, little guys, big guys…there’s a polo shirt for everyone.
Ah uniforms! We waited all summer long for the girls to stop asking us what to wear. Now it’s time to get the boys some basics. Most boys schools require boys to wear shirts with collars. And while button-down shirts work, polo shirts are much comfier, don’t need to be ironed, and they look neat whether they’re tucked or untucked. They’re usually the go-to school attire.
Here are some of our favorites.
Zara is our overall favorite. Slim and nice fit….and the price is unbeatable at $9.95. Pair up solid and solid like navy with navy pants for a neat crisp look. While there are very few color choices (navy, white, grey, and red), you can find a similar fit with more color choices at J Crew, which also with a nice slim fit.
A.I. stone is currently running a sale on boy’s polo shirts.

Like a little pocket for a bit more style?
These Polos at J Crew Factory and Primary.com both have a small pocket on the chest and stitching on collar. They’re also made from a jersey fabric, not the usual pique, they’re extra comfier and that’s a big plus. The J Crew shirts are slim, but Primary shirts will look good on bigger boys too; just size up one size. Both are also available in lots and lots of colors.
Of course, Ralph Lauren polos are a perennial favorite because they fit so nicely and seem to last forever and ever. Macy’s always has great sales, so that’s the time to get them. You can find the little boys’ options here or here for big boys. Zappos currently carries a navy and white long-sleeved Ralph Lauren polos at 20% off.
Stripes and Mixed Fabrics
J.Crew Factory stiped polos are a personal favorite though.
A polo that looks like a shirt? Check out this Target favorite.
Gap Husky has solid long sleeve polos. Grab them when you see them as they always seem to be out of sizes.
Tommy Hilfigers XL is approximately the same size. They don’t wash as well as the Brooks Brothers but with coupons you can get a great deal. At this time of this posting we don’t see any long sleeve polos, but they should be coming in, so keep on checking.
Which polos are your fav?
