Jersey shirts: a timeless classic in informal elegance.


Jersey polo shirts and shirts are a fashion classic for those who love an on-trend, sporty look, but they are also a stylish, comfy choice for everyday wear. A jersey shirt offers excellent versatility, when it comes to wear, as well as being the perfect emblem of informal elegance. With its combination of casual chic and elegant style it pairs just as well with jeans as with a pair of elegant trousers and a blazer. Made in a precious jersey in 100% cotton lisle thread, this fabric with its “quilted” effect is known for its natural stretch, resistance, and breathability, great comfort on the skin, and a softness that is unique.

A fabric with a glorious history, originally used to dress polo and tennis players and which, over the years, has become an established cult item that can be found in every wardrobe. Let's take a look at its evolution.

The jersey polo shirt: a story about sport. 

The first model was made by American John Brooks in 1896, inspired by the specific collar worn by English polo players, which he then added to his own famous polo shirts. From polo to tennis. In 1926, tennis player René Lacostedesigned and wore a new model of polo T-shirt, which he then began to sell after his retirement, adding the famous embroidered crocodile symbol. In the 1950s, another great tennis player, Fred Perry, reinvented the polo shirt, giving it a more fashionable style, a mood that would finally be consecrated in the 1970s, by fashion brand Polo Ralph Lauren, producer of casual clothing, strictly linked to the sport of polo.

Over the years, the polo shirt has become a timeless wardrobe staple, worn by the most illustrious members of the international jet set: from Frank Sinatra to Princess Diana, Clint Eastwood and even Joe Strummer.
