Our main criterion for a summer polo is feel. You want it soft, breathable and light enough to pass for a t-shirt—all of which makes an undershirt company a pretty good candidate.

Sunspel has been making English underwear for 150 years now (they claim to have introduced the boxer short to England), along with a few plain-color polos. But they’re finally branching out into more adventurous styles for their new Spring/Summer crop.

This one in particular is sharp enough to pass for Thom Browne—tricolor stripes and all. And given that Mr. Browne has borrowed fabrics from Sunspel before, it’s only right.
