Just got my Classic Polo shirts in grey and white

The fabric is super nice. Comparing to Lacoste or Ralph Lauren it is much softer and lighter, definitely has a more luxurious feel to it! The construction is well done, it has a well fitting collar and nice button holes. One thing that is missing for perfection is MOP buttons with shanks. The fit is relaxed, but in a good way: both the collar and the armhole fits nicely, body has a regular fit, length is a bit on the longer side.

This is a great polo overall, much better than the industry standard Lacoste or RL

How would you say it compares to Kent Wang? The biggest thing for me is the structure of the collar

Since you said it's lighter and softer, does the "nips" show?

Odd! I tried it on computer, iPhone and Android and it works. Have you tried in incognito or with a different device?
managed to get it to work.

On a note: altho it is a survey and will capture preferences, there are certain combination that should not be allowed.
For example, heavy fabrics, chunky knits and a 70cm width at the same time.
50 or 70 width will only go with lighter and / or finely woven fabrics, as scarfs this wide need to be folded in half along the longer edge, and thus effectively doubling the thickness of the scarf.

Same with the ends. Cashmere and fringed ends will not work well.
Also Vicuna was not on the materials list, I think it was the right choice not to include it as it would be super expensive.

The reason I mention these is that it might be that certain combinations might come up as winners, but perhaps those will not be the best.

Yes, I agree. We are using a software that allows us to check the combinations and who voted for what, so we can solve that easily.

Regarding the Vicuna, we'll probably add it as an option once we put the product live.

I've been talking to Pasotti for a while now but we haven't started a collab yet
try European umbrellas too! They have Brigg, Oertel and Manufaktur umbrellas, all very good quality! They do MTO too!
