The Origin:

Polo is closely associated with polo sport. The origin of which is estimated to have been in the late 9th century in India. British soldiers settled in India witnessed a polo match, where two teams of local riders played against each other with the aim of scoring goals. It was then that these soldiers decided to form the first Polo Club.

The sport remained highly popular among members of the British navy and British tea growers in India. The traditional outfit at the time consisted of a thick cotton long-sleeved shirt. This shirt was not very comfortable for playing polo, so they decided to add a button-down collar, which is the Polo T-Shirt today!

In 1862, this sport came to England. Before long, John E. Brooks, grandson of the founder of the American brand Brooks Brothers, arrived in England on a business trip. It was then when during one of the polo matches, the neck of the players' shirts caught their attention. When he returned to the United States, he introduced these collared shirts with two small buttons at the corners to secure it. In 1896, the first Polo shirt reached the market.

It was then when a white, short-sleeved garment, made of cotton, loose, with a flat neck, the buttoned shirt became popular. You can discover the new range of Freddy Chico Show T-shirts online.
