Polo tees are a great buy, they offer life to your getup and you don't need any other dress supplement to accompany the t-shirt. Pair them with a pair of trousers with the polos tucked in or you could even wear a plain round neck tee over them with the polo collars covering the plain t-shirt, all pointing towards a smart, overall look. US Polo Assn is a great brand, sure, but how about you try something different and give these local, homegrown brands a go? These brands offer polo tees just about the same quality as US Polo Assn, if not better. We'll tell you what the difference will be, you just won't have the polo silhouette on the t-shirt as a crest.

Bbrave is as different a name as the products on LBB. When someone tells you to wear your patriotism on your sleeve, do it the right way with this brand's polo neck t-shirt, having the national tricolour of orange, white and green printed on the collars. This is otherwise a plain white half-sleeve t-shirt that has a deeper neck to allow more air to seep through.

The t-shirt from Trus Tee also has a grainy feel to it and is best for long journeys or day outs. Not too tight, these are just the right fit and will infuse new life to your polo t-shirt collection.
