A Relwen polo is one of the most detailed garments of its kind. Its collar is a two-piece pattern with a separate collar-band shaped like a smile to ensure it properly frames the neck. Woven cotton interlining hides within these collar pieces, along with the button placket, to help reinforce and hold the shape while reducing weight. The button placket utilizes horizontally cut buttonholes and slot-holed buttons strung to folded woven tape. This method of affixing buttons was historically reserved for vintage military garments but seems just as worthy to use on our polos. This type of construction is nearly indestructible while also allowing buttons to slide to a point of stress should any occur. Finally, the lightweight cotton jersey shell fabric…say hello to summer!
