Following on from the success of the AK MC log-sleeve polo shirt, we are delighted to introduce the short-sleeved version. The polo shirt is undoubtedly one of the most versatile casual garments in a (gentle)man’s wardrobe. Taking its name from polo, the sport of kings, the polo shirt was actually popularized initially not by polo players but by 2 tennis players who were known not only for their prowess with a racket but also for their elegance : René Lacoste and Fred Perry. In the 1980s, it was Ralph Lauren who made the polo shirt a staple in any well stocked wardrobe around the globe.
Handcrafted in a workshop in Puglia in the south of Italy, the superfine cotton pique is finished with genuine mother-of-pearl buttons and is a world away from the shapeless Far East-made variety.
The fit is informed by the expert tailoring knowledge of Alexander Kraft and sculpts the body yet remains comfortable with an ease of movement. In the tradition of bespoke shirt-making, the AK cypher, in signature viper green, is placed at the waist rather than on the chest.
The crisp white shade can be worn with navy and beige and is the ideal shirt to wear with tailored shorts on elegant vacations-with the collar popped in the Ivy League tradition.
Please note that this polo shirt is cut slimmer than our long-sleeved version.
