1939 Rolls Royce Phantom III, rebodied in 1947 by Labourdette of Paris,
Spring is almost here and it is time for me to starting thinking more about my spring/summer wardrobe. Although I am excited about driving with the windows down, playing golf, and going to the beach, I am also not looking forward to putting away my fall/winter items which are the best in my wardrobe.
I find my summer style lacking for sure but I do feel like I am on the right track. Last year I really focused on keeping things simple and I am going to continue to build on that premise this year. One of the ways I plan on doing that is by adding a few Kent Wang polos to the mix.
My favorite details on these have to be the collars. Not just because they are more of a cutaway than traditional polo collars, but due to their construction. According to the description, the collar is constructed like a woven shirt with a collarband and two layers of self fabric, instead of the typical single layer of ribbed fabric that loses its shape quickly. This allows the collar to naturally lay open elegantly.
This detail has always been my main issue with polo shirts. The collar at times can get really unruly causing you to come off a bit unkempt. Hopefully my frustrations will be a thing of the past when I add a few of these to the mix.
