Polka dot shirt

Polka dot shirts are vastly underestimated in men`s fashion, to me they are a bold statement also very chic, the Polka dot pattern consists of an array of filled circles generally equally sized & spaced relatively closely together, many prints include random spaced circles & colored spots this is not Polka dot,the pattern gets its name from the dance form called yes Polka dot, women would wear Polka dot dresses which were in-fashion at the time to the dance a craze would start so people would tie both together,  it was flamenco dancers who originally wore Polka dot , again it was the 60 s that saw men turning to prints normally worn by women,  all sudden Gingham & Polka dot were fashionable for men to wear, even pop stars started to make statement by wearing Polka dot shirts one of them was Bob Dylan,  it was company’s like Merc London & Ben Sherman who first started selling Polka dot shirts to the masses, there has been even pop songs written about it.
