Has your wife or girlfriend ever borrowed your coat or wandered the house in your favorite hoodie? If not, you might need better clothes. ‘Let Her Borrow’ is a new series in which Kristina Zias, a menswear expert at our Grove store in LA, shows off her favorite new items from the Nordstrom Men’s Shop.

Menswear designers seriously stepped up their polo-shirt game this season. With trends like zippered collars, longer button plackets, and unlimited color choices, the polo is your go-to for elevating casual weekend wear. And, if the lady in your life is a tomboy at heart like me, you might catch her nabbing your new polo faster than you can say ‘Hey, that’s mine!’”
—Kristina Zias, Nordstrom at The Grove, Los Angeles

 
 



1. The Classic: Billy Reid. “This Billy Reid polo is second-skin soft. Seriously. You can wear it running around town in the AM, to a casual business meeting in the afternoon, out to dinner in the evening, and you might even want to sleep in it, too. You probably shouldn’t, but it’s so soft and classic that you could. I love this light blue—it’ll look great on almost any man.”

2. The Rebel: Marc by Marc Jacobs. “Super-slim throughout the body—if you don’t normally wear Marc Jacobs, for sure go up one size. I’m obsessed with this ‘Acacia’ color! We can also call it neon yellow. It’s so vibrant and would look great with a tan. The zipper detail adds some edge, for the man who thinks polos are for prepsters. I know you’re out there…”

3. The Popover: Edun. “Slim throughout the body. The narrow collar makes for a more modern shirt, and the rose color shows you’re ready for spring and looks great paired with almost any bottom. I love the extended button placket on this polo—actually, is it even a polo at all, or is it a button-down? Who cares? It’s great!”

4. The Contrast Collar: Ted Baker London. “The purple gingham trim under the button placket is a great pop of color to an already standout polo. The perfect shirt to wear to your girl’s family weekend barbecue! Pair it with flat-front shorts and some boat shoes, and you’ll be ‘mom-approved’ for sure.”

Visiting NYC a couple weeks ago for a top-secret project (more on that later), we stopped by Nordstrom sister store Treasure & Bond to check out the wares. T&B is a store like no other—for one thing, it stocks ridiculously cool stuff, from the under-the-radar menswear below, to bizarrely beautiful jewelry for your significant other, to a charcoal sketching utensil shaped like a squid. But even more importantly, all profits (that’s right, ALL) go to a rotating roster of worthy causes benefiting kids right there in NYC.

So if you live in New York, by all means, pay them a visit at 350 West Broadway. And if you live elsewhere, fear not: If something here speaks to you, give Treasure & Bond a call at 646-669-9049 and they’ll hook you up.
