SEAN CONNERY

Here’s a man who could, if he chose, pop the col­lar. The former Bond has been polled ‘Great­est Liv­ing Scot’ and while we’re not ex­actly sure of the met­ric, he cer­tainly knows how to pull off the polo.

JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT

The Amer­i­can artist may have died a mem­ber of the in­fa­mous ‘27 club’ but his im­pact on art, mu­sic and fash­ion (check out his Uniqlo col­lab­o­ra­tion) has re­mained pretty much a con­stant.

DA­MON AL­BARN

Blur helped spear­head the Brit-pop move­ment for which the polo formed the uni­form of choice. Sim­ple, no frills, and when worn in black helps hide a sweaty per­for­mance. Con­ve­nient.

KANYE WEST

Are we still al­lowed to like Kanye? Who knows, but we can agree his ef­fect on fash­ion has been a sus­tained, and in­ter­est­ing one. Here, bring­ing polo prep­pi­ness to hip hop.
