Polo presents a fine-tuned heritage story for Spring 2016, where iconic pieces are updated for the modern man, blending details from the worlds of tailored, technical and rugged to create a cool, fresh, contemporary look.
Suits in tan, grey and navy are polished yet relaxed, constructed in lightweight fabrics, with narrow notch lapels and soft shoulders. The heralded return of the double-breasted silhouette is featured on a trim navy tuxedo and a navy linen herringbone jacket paired with a cream pant. Subtle styling includes white and blue dress shirts and solid, dark ties.
Grounded in Polo’s sporting tradition, a vivid red fireman’s jacket is seam-sealed for waterproofing and outfitted with metal closures and brown leather buckles. A Black Watch plaid belted four-pocket moto jacket is styled with a navy cardigan, crisp white trouser and striped shirt and tie. Refined cut-and-sew polos, a glen plaid jacket and a featherweight suede navy field vest round out this laid-back heritage collection.
Shades of deep blue create a seaport sensibility with a masculine aesthetic. Navy nylon trenches are worn over washed, textured cotton and cashmere sweaters and are paired with elements of haberdashery. A double-breasted pinstripe jacket is juxtaposed with a distressed moto-style jean. Constructed from indigo denim, a three-piece suit is finished with a stripe chambray shirt and knit tie.
Black and grey set the tone for this portion of the collection, inspired by the modern urbanite. Varsity-inspired graphic athletic wear mixes with well-worn denim and leather. A jogger and hoodie are topped with a classic tweed jacket. Jackets and pants are crafted from technical nylon and paired with knits or sport shirts and ties for an elevated, functional take on city dressing.
Rugged looks mine the terrain of California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains, where military cargos in olive and tan are worn with faded plaid work shirts and performance-driven jackets. Jeans are washed and frayed for a vintage quality, while denim shirts and jackets feature vibrant Southwestern pattern details. Exemplifying the versatility and modernity of Polo sportswear, innovative outerwear such as a hybrid knit with power stretch and a three-layer nylon camouflage print military jacket are ready for rustic trails as easily as metropolitan streets.
