For those of you who think that collar-poppers are poser idiots, the original purpose of that polo shirt was to have that collar flipped upright. Polo players used to wear button-down oxford shirts until they switched to what they now call "polo shirts." The collar was flipped up for two reasons, it actually keeps you cooler and it protects your neck from being sunburned. In the 50s it caught on with golfers who have since turned them down and the fashion world followed them. So for anybody else here that throws them up, let people know why.

Do you play polo?

If not, aren't you still a poser then?

Wait, so if a popped collar is supposed to count as fashion, then why isn't there designer sunscreen. They do the same thing and all.

I'd say only as much as wearing a football or baseball jersey when it's not "your" jersey.

Owned.

It is different than wearing the jersey of someone else, because that is an act that shows support for that player or that team.

Polo is just as lame as most people that don't know about those trivial facts think poped collars are, and golf isn't too far down on the lame scale as well.

OK, I am wearing the shirt the way it is meant to be worn. And I would say that it is the same as wearing a jersey, polo players wear certain colors too.

Actually a polo shirt is a polo shirt. You are mistaking polo for Polo Ralph Lauren.

How is it the same as wearing a jersey? Do you have a polo player that you cheer for and support by wearing a polo shirt? Last time I checked that was the most common reason for wearing any type of jersey.
