Our ever-popular Friday Polos are back, in the four colours of navy, brown, green and light grey.
You can buy them on the shop page here.
Please don't forget to include the size you want and the colour(s) in the notes section.
We dropped white this time around, as it was consistently the least popular of the colours - and it allows us to do a full run of brown, which was so popular last time.
Shipping will begin on Wednesday this week. We've extended stock again, so these should last a few weeks (hopefully into the tenure of our Savile Row pop-up shop).
I continue to find my Friday Polos useful for bridging the gap between casual and formal.
Most often, they are worn with a sports jacket and trousers, as pictured here.
But they also get a lot of use without a jacket. With a tailored pair of cotton trousers, for instance, they can do very well at the weekend, perhaps with a pair of loafers and a light coat.
In the images I am wearing our light-grey colour, with Tommaso Melani, Tommaso Capozzoli and Filippo Parri of Stefano Bemer wearing the other colours.
Tommaso Melani (in the navy polo) is wearing his particularly casually, with the cuffs turned back.
Our old friend Capozzoli favours the brown, which goes particularly nicely with his green tweed jacket.
And Filippo wears his green with grey worsted.
For anyone that's not familiar with the Friday Polos, including their design, handmade-in-Naples origin, and of course sizing, please see this last post here.
