Maroon and pink polo and rugby shirts
My polos on GQ.com:
Traditional polos feature those floppy ribbed collars that start looking tired by the end of the first day you wear them. Kent has taken a cue from tailoring, and makes his polos with a full collar band, and two-ply self collar in the same soft cotton pique as the rest of the shirt. Not to mention it’s a rakish cutaway collar that stands proudly and won’t droop on you after a few washes. The three button placket means you don’t have to stretch the shirt out getting it on and off, and the durable stitched seams, thick mother of pearl buttons, and a trim cut all add up to make it the ideal summer shirt. At $65, one of the best deals going.
Long-sleeve polos, aka rugby shirts, are here. Available in three colors now; more colors will be available in late November.
A hybrid between a casual rugby and a woven shirt, these rugbys feature a spread collar that’s built with a collarband so that it’ll lay open elegantly, and button cuffs—with mother of pearl buttons, of course. Appropriate on its own, layered with a sweater, or even a sportcoat.
Coming soon around September 20: long sleeve polos (aka rugby shirts), $85. This first batch will only be available in white, navy, and white with navy stripes.
Unlike most rugbys, these will have a button cuff—with mother of pearl buttons, of course—which, along with the collar, is another characteristic drawn from woven shirts.
Unrefinery reviews my polo shirts, with fit pic:
Clearly our favourite cotton pique polo ever, this design gets so many things right: the slim fit, the perfect length of the sleeves, and most notably the signature structured collar that puts its ribbed, lifeless competitors to shame. And of course, no stupid horses or alligators on the chest.
