Some of the items on the summer’s essentials list for gentlemen are the shorts and polo shirts. Why do they love them?

Polo shirts are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing a man can have. Why? They can go from sports to smart-casual in no time, they are very flexible, so they can be worn everywhere.

The shorts, although originally were made not to be worn in public, were more used to the beach or when practicing some kind of sport or activity. However, after years and years and with a lot of trends rising on the runways, they were reintroduced as quite the summer item: they could be worn and paired even with buttoned office shirts and cool espadrilles.

These two items can be mixed and matched in a whole lot of combinations if you happen to have a few items of each lying around in your closet. Let’s take a look at some of the coolest items for gentlemen this summer.
