The Quest to Make the Ultimate Polo
Our quest was to make the ultimate Polo shirt that combines style and function. We started with the construction, a captains collar which is a modern take on the one worn frequently by JFK seaside. Its a Milano collar that’s stands up perfectly like a dress shirt when worn on its own or under blazer. It’s a dress shirt collar on a polo, finally.
The inspiration was my time spent on the water this summer but also the tennis court. I love this polo because it has all the details and ingrediients of our stretch performance pieces: breathability, stretch, comfort and drape. The perfect day to night piece as we move through this last month of summer sun.
Fit – Extended wider shoulders to give you ultimate comfort under a jacket or on warmer days. With a classic fit in body. Higher armhole on the shirt for movement with wider sleeves that can be worn normally or double rolled with a cuff for that stylist James Dean look.
|The Fabric – AIRTEX Pique from Albini of Italy. Perfect blend of stretch and structure.
Details – Milano collar stands crisp on its own or under a jacket. Smaller size to be worn buttoned to the top “air tie” style.
