Synonymous With Style & With Summer: The Polo Shirt

Aristotle Onassis famously said, “To succeed in business, it is necessary to make others see things as you see them”.

With this sentiment in mind, we put pen to paper - to make you see things as we do; that the polo shirt is one of the most important pieces in every gentleman’s summer wardrobe…

To help you see things as we do, we turn once more to Aristotle Onassis and other similarly sartorially-savvy folks of foregone eras to take stock of their style. Gianni Agnelli. Cary Grant. Julio Iglesias. Alain Delon. 

Different men of different shapes and sizes, each with different styles. But bound by their shared love of a true sartorial staple; the polo shirt. In case the polo shirt’s synonymity with style icons past was not enough to make you see things as we see them, perhaps you’ll be more taken with their practicality. 

Short Sleeves But Not Short in Style

Short sleeves afford cool, while an unstructured collar affords comfort; however, the true beauty of the polo lies in its versatility. It can be worn with everything from shorts to tailored trousers; on its own or under a jacket; during the day or in the evening; for business or pleasure. 

So, without further ado, let’s explore our SS22 collection in greater detail and shine a spotlight on some of our favourite polo shirts this season.

A Splash of Colour

Summer is the season of frivolity, and what better way to embrace this than with a splash of colour? 

Brigatelli’s collection - cut from a luxuriously lightweight ‘ice’ cotton - celebrates the vibrant spirit of summer.


Some Sartorial Flair

Cut from a beautiful Egyptian Mako cotton and styled with a sartorially splendorous one-piece collar, the ‘Filicudi’ polo short from Guercilena is a modern take on a classic style. 

Defined by its generous collar roll and subtle sartorial flair, it is perfect for wear under a tailored jacket this summer.


For The Connoisseur

Last but certainly not least are those polos knitted by Napoli’s finest exponent of tailoring, Cesare Attolini. Crafted from sumptuously soft and ethereally lightweight blends of cotton and linen and one in pure silk, Attolini’s polo shirts are the height of luxury for the height of summer.

So whether you’re enamoured of mid-century style icons, passionate about the practicality the polo shirt affords, or a combination of both (as we are), we trust that one way or another, we have succeeded in business (as Aristotle Onassis put it), and made you see things as we see them...
