The polo shirt just might be the great equalizer in menswear. From dads to frat bros, svelte to schlocky, every man owns a polo shirt or five. And why shouldn’t we? Truly, few shirt options say summer quite like a polo shirt. It’s basic, breathable and does duty for any and all weekend exploits including mastering the grill or playing the back nine. If you’re in the market for the best of the best regarding the casual classic polo, I’d introduce you to KP MacLane.

Speaking with founder Jared MacLane, “My wife, Katherine and I launched the company in early 2012. We met while working for Hermes in Beverly Hills, and were deeply inspired by, not just luxury details, but luxury details that were functional. We have an obsession with perfected craftsmanship. We enjoy making products with a purpose, and at the highest level. When you can focus on quality, and incorporate the highest level of comfort, you create an amazing experience; an experience our customer can relive over and over again each time they put on our shirt.”

Their fabric (48.5% Cotton, 48.5% Modal, 3% Elastine) is woven in France and all shirting made in New York. The fit is slim without being overly taut with a self-collar and two-button placket. Accompaning the shirt is a useful drawstring linen bag with the KP MacLane logo hand-embroidered throughout. My opinion? Probably the finest polo shirt I’ve ever owned. Take a glance at the images below and make your way to KP MacLane for more details.
