There are many combining factors that have made this garment successful over the years, but they can be summarised by two main points. First of all, the wearability: the knit polo shirt defines the shape as a piqué polo, but is as comfortable as a shirt. Secondly, it can be made of different yarns, heavy or light, such as wool, cashmere, linen and cotton, allowing the wearer to have a style-focused and versatile polo shirt, perfect to complete a range of outfits and suitable from Spring to Autumn.

A must-have staple part of a man's wardrobe, the knit polo first entered the fashion scene in the 1950s and stands out for its elegance and comfort - always showing off a refined and clean style. One signature element is the collar, which can be buttoned for a more elegant delivery or plain for a bolder aesthetic.

With true Amalfi Coast allure - think The Talented Mr. Ripley - the knit polo shirt can be combined with chinos, shorts and the summer season classic boat shoe. And for those with a penchant for the preppy look, the knit polo can also show off a vintage look capturing the essence of 1950s and 1960s New England.
