T-shirts are a summer staple, but as we head into September and the summer begins to conclude, you should start to ease up on the graphic t's (besides these, of course) and throw on something a little more sophisticated. We're not saying it's time to whip back out your button downs and sweaters—nah, the leaves don't even start falling in September.

What you should do, however, is make sure your polo game is proper. Especially if you're going back to school. There's nothing like a sick polo shirt to give you a more scholarly look. From the classic Ralph Lauren polos to the casual J. Crew jerseys we picked out the 12 must own polo shirts of the season. Take your pick below...
