Strictly a plain polo then, Simon, not one of those striped numbers we both love.  8)
They seem to be made to be worn untucked 8)

Agree, my friend

What do you do on a wet miserable Sunday with nothing much to do? Music,that's what.
Listening to a selection from the Byrds There is a Season box set. Always had a soft spot for them and as I've gotten older started to really appreciate them.

I've always loved them, since I first heard "Mr Tambourine Man" on a cheap 60s K-Tel comp (where I also discovered the Small Faces, the Hollies and the Lovin' Spoonful, among others; not bad for a cheapo cassette, uh?) as a 13 or 14 years old kid.

Later I graduated to a Spanish edition of their first LP, lost to the mists of time or to a "friend", which is a pity as it possibly commands quite a few bucks today. Little by little I got all their stuff (LPs only, I'm not a 45s collector) up till 1970 or 71. But the cream of the crop, to me at least, is, without the slightest doubt, '67's "Younger than Yesterday", one of the best 33 rpms ever recorded. I have a soft spot for their 'comeback' '73 LP too.

Totally agree with you about Younger than Yesterday. It's definitely their finest album. I also like David Crosbys first solo, If only I could Remember my Name.
I've pretty much most of the Byrds albums now including their Preflyte early stuff but don't own Sweetheart of the Rodeo as I simply don't like it.

The Crosby LP is one of the best things he's done, haunting and atmospheric, he's a wonderful vocalist too and it shows throughout.

I admit "Sweetheart..." meant a major departure from their earlier stuff, as Gram Parsons shared almost lead duties with McGuinn on that and turned the band into a country-rock outfit. That's one of the albums I got as a cheap Spanish reissue when I was quite young (but I kept this one), and if I wasn't entirely convinced at the moment, it grew steadily on me and now I rate it as a great LP, only it's not typical of the Byrds' output, the odd one really. You've got to like country-rock to appreciate it, mind you (I do).

I am a bit like Sydney , many of my polo shirts , like the long sleeve JS l am wearing right now , are designed to be worn untucked but l have been known to tuck in the more versatile variety of polo  as it may look sharper like that😜🤩

I have a very similar seersucker jacket myself but l am a little unsure of the shirt pulled oot over the jacket,  l huvnae pulled that look off for about 45yrs

Know what you mean, hermano, but I welcome taking some sartorial risks now and then. With the wider chinos I was aiming for a more 40s-50s look, a bit like our Adam, and the overall shape of the polo -wide collar and shorter than usual, which goes well with high-waisted troos- lent superbly to that, IMO.

Wire in mi hermano,  I have never been a member of the mod police , it's just not a look l would do myself now but l do wear a tie with a bd,  😱infact , I am out of the country right now dressed like that 😜

And I'm sure you're pulling off that look in style!  8)

"Mod Police", that should be an oxymoron.

You wouldn't say that if you wore prescription lenses, Coop  ;D

I have to rely on glasses more and more,GS. Just slide them a tiny bit down your nose. You'll be fine.

That's what I usually do, my friend. Still there are moments in the street, when not even a slight breeze blows, that I literally can't see my way ahead  ;D

I'm going to ask my Doc, next time I see her. She has to where them most of the day, every day, there has to be some trick.

That's very kind from you, Mike, thanks

I felt it needed a reply but you're right I should have left it alone, I'll stick to clothes from now on, what are your opinions on tucked in polo shirts  ;D ;)

I get your debate suggestion is a bit tongue-in-cheek, Coop, but hey, it's interesting anyway: always untucked for me, I don't feel comfortable wearing a tucked polo, more so as 95% I own are knits, as opposed to pique cotton (but even those, for instance classic FP shirts, if they're the right length, look better untucked, IMO)
