The Black Polo, as its name suggests, is a polo collar shirt that has a jet black color to it. Being made by Zekko, the shirt features a small tag sewed onto the bottom left of the shirt, and near the chest area, a white strip with Zekko written in red Inkling letters is featured. The sleeves of the shirt, as well as the collars, feature white stripes near the bottom parts of them.
The Black Polo comes with Recon as a main ability, which, being exclusive to the main slot of Clothing, prevents the wearer from also having Cold-Blooded, Haunt, or Ninja Squid. As a 1-star item, the Black Polo has one additional slot for secondary abilities. Since it is made by the Zekko brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Special Saver and a lower chance of rolling Special Charge Up to fill its secondary ability slot.
The Black Polo comes with Ninja Squid as a main ability when purchased from shop or ordered from Murch, which, being exclusive to the main slot of Clothing, prevents the wearer from also having Ability Doubler, Haunt, Respawn Punisher, or Thermal Ink. When purchased from SplatNet 2, it can have any other ability normally available to Clothing. As a 1-star item, the Black Polo has one additional slot for secondary abilities. Since it is made by the Zekko brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Special Saver and a lower chance of rolling Special Charge Up to fill its secondary ability slot.
- The Black Polo is the cheapest piece of gear with Recon in Splatoon. It is tied with the Herbivore Tee for cheapest purchasable gear with Ninja Squid in Splatoon 2.
- The Black Polo had been in the game's data files since its original release and had been shown in several pre-release screenshots, but was not made available until Version 2.3.0.
