Polo shirts are worn in various sports, such as tennis, and golf.
It is said that the roots are tennis wear which was developed in 1927 by Jean René Lacoste, a French tennis player.
At that time, tennis is regarded as the necessary accomplishment of ladies and gentlemen, and it was common that they wore fabric cotton shirts in matches. The thing Lacoste focused on is the Knitted T-shirts which polo (a ball game on horseback) players had been using.
It is said that the one Lacoste himself wore in matches, put this fabric on the collar, is the prototype of polo shirts.
Today, as you can see that they are encouraged to wear the shirts with a collar in many official tennis matches, we can say polo shirts were the epoch-making invention.
When we unraveled the history of polo shirts, we thought that a tight collar on shirts is a point we could call THE.
First, we paid attention to the material of the collar.
There are various things, such as cotton, polyester, polyurethane, and these mixed fibers in the market.
Polyester and polyurethane enable us to make them to the original even if they are stretched. However, if that is the case, they don’t become a tensioned collar.
Therefore, we adopt 100% cotton for THE POLO SHIRTS and knit high density using 1/30 (30 counts) fine thread.
Instead of not being elastic, they are not likely to be exhausted and keep tight collar shape forever.
There is also a device in the fabric of the main body.
The knitted fabric used for ordinary polo shirts formed the surface by alternately combining two types of knitting called plain knitting and tuck stitch.
On the other hand, the fabric for THE POLO SHIRTS is adopted for special manufacturing methods which keeps knitting tuck stitch two times after plain knitting.
You can wear them with one piece without seeing through, because they will become more uneven fabric, and not only will they become easier to absorb sweat, but the volume of the fabric will increase.
Feathers are hard to stand and become smooth fabric by adopting compact thread which inserts fur inside.
Usually, due to the demand as sportswear is high, many durable plastic buttons are used for collar buttons.
We remembered buttons made of shell with the thickness（button shell）for THE POLO SHIRTS.
Button shell has a characteristic that it is not only hard to slip and is but also easy to fasten.
