    I would like to know if it is disrespectful to wear a flag pin on the left collar (from my perspective) of my polo shirt?

    I do not wear suits very often and I would like to wear my pin everyday to work and at home. I would not wear it if it would be deemed inappropriate however. There seems to be a lot of information about wearing the pin on a suit lapel and I appreciate that clarification on this great website.

    Hi, Randy -- welcome to the forum.

    There's nothing wrong with wearing a flag pin on any presentable attire. The big problem that I've had with flag pins on collars (especially thin ones) is that the flag tends to rotate around the pin, so that the flag looks upside down!

    hey as said above there is no problem in wearing a polo shirt with flag pin, you can wear it without any problem. actally i am very happy to read your question because it is respect that you are giving to your country's flag by wearing flag pin.
    hats off
