An Ascot Chang X The Armoury collab. The shirt is surprisingly heavy due to the super high quality jersey.

One piece collar with shell buttons.

This is RTW, hence the two buttons on the cuff to cater to different needs.

Unlike polos like from RL or Lacoste, the collar is made of the same material as the rest of the shirt and not of the ribbed material commonly used.

It's a very attractive type of shirt, and AC's buttondown catches the eye IRL.

I have a piece of high quality knit pique, waiting to be turned into something very similar when I have more time.

Very curious how it behaves under the needle.

The stuff from AC X Armoury are really neat and nice.....I saw this polo in Penninsula Hotel once and they are very pretty, perfect design with a 1 piece collar and BD....would bespoking / tailoing a polo same as tailoring a shirt ? In another words, would a regular shirtmaker ( asian level, not Italy / UK) be able to tailor knit wear ? I assume the machine would be same ? just the way to handle the fabric could be different ? 

 

The Safari shirt jacket is also a piece of art, I did mention to my tailor once and they just reply these "hunting" style is old school, the tailor will have to recall some of the memories doing them.....

I think with these shirts sourcing a reliable supply of high quality jersey at a reasonable price is the main challenge... For customers, just the quality is necessary, price can be retail. For those who want to sell these things, both quality and price must be good, otherwise the price makes them a niche product doomed to never find broad popularity.

Have anyone looked into kentwang polo?

 

"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."

 

www.KENTWANG.com

 

I purchased two, and I am very satisfied with them.

I agree with Kent, I can't stand the ribbed collar on conventional polos either.

I do like the ribbed cuffs on long sleeved polos. The buttoned ones (like Kent Wang sells) are abit to fussy for a polo.

 

Love the idea that the collar stands up and holds its own under a sportsjacket.

Brioni makes a nice high collar polo shirt. Uniqlo and Muji for those who need a budget version (button down type only as the shirt collar type isn't made high enough. I actually posted something up the other day. 

 

Those in SG can head over to Takashimaya for Orlebar Brown. Nice too.

I have a feeling that there will soon be a new superpower in the polo shirt arms race...

It's the polo shirt for the children of capitalists...

Well done, it's the most highly-spec'd I've encountered!

Don't see it anywhere on the product itself but an embroidered logo on the chest would be a deal breaker

Hopefully the polos come in more conventional colours as well - white, black, heather greys, forest green, etc. - in the pique fabric.

Pfft, too proletariat. Borgeois polos are in burnt orange, purple, celadon, chalkstripes, houndstooth, etc.
