The secret to having a leading man’s wardrobe this summer isn’t a buzzy stylist or an “it” piece with a months-long waitlist: Instead, it all boils down to Percival’s knit polo. While the British brand might not be a household name on this side of the pond (well, not yet), the label’s knack for subtly twisting wardrobe staples has garnered a growing fanbase. And in its faultlessly executed polos, a hero piece has emerged that counts a star-studded fanbase in Kit Harington, Chris Evans, Michael B. Jordan, and the Rock.
Available in button-up and buttonless variations, Percival’s best-selling knit polos measure up to the hype. No surprise there. This is a top that’s comfortable while elevated and lightweight enough for summer (it’s made of 100 percent cotton).
You can wear them casually, of course, but don’t be afraid of taking your cues from their celebrity fans: The unexpected textures and prints—along with a trim-but-not-too-tight fit—make them suitable for movie premieres, talk show appearances, or, if you have yet to reach celeb-status, date nights and chill work meetings. (And, let’s be honest, if it looks good on Captain America, Jon Snow, and Luke Hobbs, it’ll work for you, too.)

Best of all? Percival’s polos come in a range of different colors and patterns. Andrew Garfield and Ryan Reynolds have sported the Casa Picante jacquard knit. Meanwhile, Chris Evans looked artful in the Impressionist Jacquard knit at the Lightyear premiere. And if you want to take a page out of Shawn Mendes’ lookbook—yes, another fan—grab the Kodo style.
Should you be ready to buy one (or maybe five) on the spot, it’s worth noting that Percival currently boasts a stacked sale section that’s worth checking out while shopping as well. We’ll be keeping a lookout to see if any knit polos are added in the next few weeks. For now, we’re cutting to the chase and sharing our favorite knit polos below to shop now.
