Finding The Perfect Polo Shirt

Can We Help You Choose?

At Orlebar Brown we have four key styles of polo shirts across two fits—tailored and classic. All expertly crafted and each with its own individual personality to give you the spirit of summer, wherever you are.

SEBASTIAN - The Tailored Polo

Sebastian was our first ever polo and remains one of our bestsellers thanks to its timeless style and tailored detailing. With a flat two-part collar, cuff detailing and a three-button placket featuring rubberised, colour-matched buttons we moved away from ribs and racking for a more traditional finish. The shaped hem offers a superb fit and means it can be worn tucked in or over trousers and shirts.

Available in a range of summer fabrics including classic pique, chic towelling and resort linen, the Sebastian truly represents a perfect, lighter alternative to a shirt that can still be styled in all the same ways; under a smart linen blazer, on its own with tailored chinos or under a knitted crew neck.

  • Tailored fit
  • Flat two-part collar
  • Three-button placket with rubberised, colour-matched buttons
  • Shaped hem for superior fit

FELIX - The Tailored Resort Polo

The Felix takes its ‘resort’ description from its short, buttonless placket and flat two-piece collar. This creates a more open neckline that is relaxed and breathable while the tailored silhouette ensures a smart finish with a straight front hem and extended back hem.

The classic shape represents a perfect platform for us to introduce contrast-colour plackets, vintage patterns and melange-effect cottons. An easy partner for any holiday.

  • Tailored fit
  • Short buttonless placket
  • Flat two piece collar
  • Straight front hem and extended back hem

TERRY - The Tailored Towelling Polo

Towelling is one of our signature fabrics and it works perfectly in the tailored yet relaxed polo shape of our signature Terry polo. Celebrated by the likes of Sean Connery and Paul Newman, towelling was also worn in the studio by Pablo Picasso during his years on the Riviera. From 70s San Fran chic to a contemporary classic, towelling has become synonymous with easy poolside style that is both vintage and vibrant.

The buttonless resort placket, tailored fit and relaxed, two-piece collar compounds its effortless style while the straight front and extended back hem finish the tailored silhouette. A true OB Classic and our bestselling towelling polo.

  • Tailored fit, relaxed polo shape in signature fabric
  • Buttonless resort placket
  • Two-piece collar
  • Straight front and extended back hem

JARRET - The Classic Polo

Modelled on the iconic shape that originated with the sport from which it takes its name but was widely popularised through its use in tennis from the 1920s. The Jarret features a traditional three-button placket and is finished with signature OB detailing with red bar tacks over the side seams and a textured ‘racking’ effect on the collar. The tailored fit and straight hem create a simple and stylish piece. Classic in inspiration, classic in design, classic in spirit.

  • Classic fit
  • Traditional three-button placket
  • Signature OB detailing
  • Straight hem
