How do you make our Japan Pique Polos perfect for cooler weather? Make them with long sleeves. Meet the Japan Long Sleeve Pique Polos - honoring the classic appeal of a timeless garment while dialing up all the details. We're using the same absolutely gorgeous pique from Japan to bring you the perfect fall / winter polo.
Whenever we work on styles that have an incredibly rich history, like the polo, we always want to honor those roots while adding details that bring it up to the best of today’s standards. That process starts with fabric. If you want to go classic, cotton pique is your only option. If you want the best, go to Japan. Our version uses extremely high quality, long staple cotton. It has the classic raised texture that defines the pique weave, but unlike some versions that feel very dry and course, this one has an incredibly soft, almost moist hand feel. To us, a classic polo should have to have a touch of heft to it. This seven ounce fabric is the perfect sweet spot. The bigger weight combined with this fabric’s natural softness makes it feel both old-school and luxurious. Top notch fabric has to be paired with all the right style cues: a perfectly sized collar, mother of pearl buttons on the placket, taped collar and the thoroughly classic tennis tail. The long sleeves are finished with a placket while our mother of pearl buttons are used for closure. A fit that is clean but not too slim completes the perfect package. This version is an earthy, light coffee color and is just totally different.
This is one of those garments we’ll be living in all year long. It’s iconic and we’ve respected that history in this USA-made version.
