About Niccolò P.
Based in London, Niccolò P. (pronounced: /ni-CO-lo-P/) launched in May 2018 as a more structured approach to polo shirts: polos smart enough to take you from relaxed meeting to the rooftop bars of the city and from airport lounge to poolside. Made using the finest natural materials available anywhere in the world with bespoke-level details in classic style and a contemporary fit.
"The inspiration for starting Niccolò P. came in 2016 while at a barbecue with friends. Several were wearing name brand polo shirts and I noticed that most had collars which had curled up, cheap plastic buttons or a fit which was too boxy - the quality was clearly not what it should be.
I wanted to put the 'shirt' back in 'polo shirt' using the highest quality materials in the world produced responsibly in Europe. From this, Niccolò P. was born. The name derives from Niccolò Polo, an Italian travelling merchant best known as the father of explorer Marco Polo. Travel is a personal passion and we strive to make products as versatile for travel as possible - this often means making clothes that look as smart as possible."

Our Structured Polo Shirt. Your New 'Gold Standard' For Polos.
The Niccolò P. team spent 15 months (and 9 prototypes) perfecting the pattern and sourcing the natural materials for our polo shirts. We eliminated the shortcomings commonly found in other polos such as curling/shapeless collars; plastic or imitation mother-of-pearl buttons which crack easily; run-of-the-mill cottons; and the boxy fit common in many heritage brands.
The end result is a polo shirt which always feels great and is destined to become a staple in your wardrobe.
Brand and Craft: Smart Details, Enduring Style
Each polo is made using only cotton knitted in Montebelluna, a region of Italy renowned for fine textiles. West Indian Sea Island, Egyptian Mako and Supima cotton varieties are used, all of which are extra long staple cottons guaranteeing you a smooth, soft feel second to none. Fabrics are custom-dyed from over 2,300 colour options.
An Updated Classic with Bespoke-Level Details
Every design is approached as a challenge to really improve on classic style. Niccolò P. structured polos sit perfectly under a jacket or blazer - taking you seamlessly from a relaxed business setting into the weekend. Details are added which are usually only found on the very best shirts including:
• Genuine Australian mother-of-pearl buttons - for iridescence and durability
• Flat-felled seam stitching - taking around 5x longer to sew than regular seams, the result is a structured finish which gives you exceptional wearing comfort
• Stand collars with slots for collar stays - to sit properly under a jacket
