Polo shirt


Did you know how the item of clothing that we all now know as POLO was born? In the past, tennis was played with clothing that we would define as totally inappropriate as it was terribly uncomfortable for both male and female sports. At one point, in 1926, a certain Lacoste (does this name tell you something?) set himself the goal of facilitating comfort during tennis competitions and created a strange t-shirt with collar and buttons: he had invented the polo shirt as we know it today. A garment that combines the comfort and strength of a sports garment with the elegance of the lines (with or without crocodile on the chest).
But let’s come to the present day, where the polo shirt is a garment used in everyday life and all over the world: what exactly is a polo shirt made of?
The fabric used in most cases is 100% CO piquet, very comfortable. Of course, there are a large number of possible variations, such as the addition of elastane to the piquet fabric, the use of jersey fabric, and more.
The weight and the specific characteristics of the fabric itself are decided according to the needs of each of our customers, depending on whether the elegant side or the sporty side should prevail, or a right mix between them.
In any case, all the fabrics we use on behalf of our customers are Italian and have the highest quality standards (see T-shirts).

A few brief hints of curiosities about the way our polo shirts are made:

We were talking about the fabric: one of the first steps consists in choosing its specific characteristics, that is: composition, weight, finishing; usually when we ship the prototype we also send various fabric swatches with different characteristics along with it, in order to give you the possibility to choose the one that best suits your brand.
We start with the creation of the prototype, through which we proceed to define the main elements of the garment, such as the fit and the type of finishes that will characterize the garment itself.

Details are crucial:
for example, if we consider the collar and the cuffs, they are most often made in for example, if we consider the collar and the cuffs, they are most often made in knitted rib and naturally their color tone must reflect as much as possible that of the piquet fabric used. To this end, to achieve maximum precision, we have both the pique fabric and the knitted rib yarn dyed together. In addition, again with regard to the knitted rib, there are various types: in solid color like the classic Lacoste, with stripes (or decorative motifs) in the same color as Tom Ford, with jacquard processing like Versace, etc. Of course we agree with the customer which type is more appropriate to use.
Embroideries and prints: we go from the smallest ones, such as the brand logo, to even very large ones that must have both the right texture and the highest level of detail.
Buttons and zips: there is a whole universe regarding these accessories, and obviously many possibilities and customization techniques and infinite shapes and sizes, in relation to the result to be achieved.
Consultancy: precisely because of the great choice in many aspects of a polo shirt, the customer greatly appreciates our ability to advise him for the best, in such a way as to realize the idea he has in mind.
Costs: as per our practice we always provide a free estimate, both for the realization of the samples and for the subsequent production; if you provide us also with information about the budget available or the production price you wants to fall within, I will be happy to give suggestions about the most suitable material to use and the quantities to be produced to meet your market needs.
