We are mid July and summer is in its full glory after some serious heatwaves last week. The time of the year to wear the finest outfits on holidays and events, but are these outfits always that comfortable? From my experience wearing several designers clothes it is not always made of the best materials and the fits can be a disaster sometimes. The fit of polo’s and shirts can be very boxy sometimes and the buttons feel plastic sometimes.
I got in touch with Niccolò P. several months ago to have a look at the collection and tailored made polo’s for the summer season. Niccolò P. is launched in May 2018 as a more structured approach to polo shirts: polos smart enough to take you from relaxed meeting to the rooftop bars of the city and from airport lounge to poolside.We talked about fabrics, fits and designer clothing which is not always the best on the market. As I am a huge fan of tailored clothing this was the right adres for me. I like my button shirts, polo’s and T shirts tailored on the shoulders and chest with a looser end on the bottom to keep it fresh and ventilated. Nicolò P. is a London based tailor specialized in classy menswear with the focus on Shirts and Polo’s. A little issue that I have with clothing is that I am 1,92cm tall and am pretty masculine on the shoulders and chest which makes it often hard to select the right sizing and tailor for me. Most problems are on the sleeve lengths and the length of the items itself , seams could cause an irritation on my skin in same cases. Niccolò P. uses the finest natural materials available anywhere in the world with bespoke-level details in classic style and a contemporary fit.
Each polo is made using only cotton knitted in Montebelluna, a region of Italy renowned for fine textiles. West Indian Sea Island, Egyptian Mako and Supima cotton varieties are used, all of which are extra long staple cottons guaranteeing you a smooth, soft feel second to none. Fabrics are custom-dyed from over 2,300 colour options.
