Believe it or not the polo as we know it, made its debut on the tennis court and not on the field. Its versatility and style has maintained classic-status in his wardrobe since the 1920’s.
Before the reboot, tennis players endured restrictive, long-sleeved tops and flannel trousers (definitely without moisture-wicking). There was an opportunity to make the uniform more comfortable by introducing a short sleeve, breathable pique knit and unstarched collar.
Voi la, the polo was reborn and adapted as the uniform of tennis and polo players the world over. And this spring, we’ve picked our favourite polos perfect for gifting to the legend in your life; dad.
The (anything but) basic Bronson Polo
Collars: to pop or not to pop? The choice is yours.
The unstarched collar was originally designed to protect its wearer’s neck from the sun. And whether dad’s sporting it popped for style or for comfort, the flexible button-down placket allows for easy wear, unbuttoning and layering.
West Cape Polo Comfort
For a rugged yet relaxed look, check out our West Cape polos which come in a slightly slimmer fit. Dad will love the quality and comfort, with fine details, lined neck trim and soft-touch jersey fabric.
