Everyone knows the key to a perfect wardrobe is the basics. Your favorite pair of jeans, a crisp white T-shirt, your go-to leather jacket. It’s all about the timeless essentials that you can style multiple different ways with the statement pieces in your closet.
And when it comes to the men’s style, one key piece is the classic polo shirt. Whether you wear it to the office, the golf course or out to dinner, a short-sleeved collared shirt is the cornerstone of a guy’s wardrobe, no matter the age.
That’s why this $12 style with nearly 14,000 perfect reviews is certainly worth a look. Available in over 40 different colorways and prints, one Amazon shopper admitted to buying over 20 of the same shirt.
“I have purchased 20-plus of these shirts in the past six months. I bought the first batch in spring, figuring if any inconsistencies or quality issues arose upon delivery, no problem. Amazon’s return policy has always been hassle-free,” the five-star review wrote. “After trying on the fourth shirt and noticing no outstanding flaws or differences, all were simply opened, laundered and hung on a hanger.”
Shop: Amazon Essentials Cotton Pique Polo Shirt, $12
Crafted from comfortable cotton pique fabric with a double-button placket and ribbed cuffs for a classic look, this Amazon Essentials polo changes the game for anyone in a style rut. Trust us, we’ve all been there.
Another shopper explained, “I have an unfortunate case of the dreaded ‘dress code’ at work, so of course I pick the least dressy option possible: polos. After wearing them every day, it’s nice to see that Amazon has come out with their own version. That usually means a good value and no frills which is exactly what I want in a shirt.”
Amongst the thousands of reviews, the biggest caveat seems to be that the shirt runs large and people have recommended sizing down from your average size. One person wrote, “It’s much bigger than I expected,” but suggested trying the slim-fit option.
