"When I first discovered Niccolò P. I was attracted by the concept of a polo shirt that can be worn under a sport coat. When travelling I like to be comfortable and wrinkle free however I always like to take a jacket with me to wear to restaurants and evening events.
What this used to mean is that I’d either have to travel with a separate suit bag and do without the jacket on the plane, or head to the airport wearing a more informal, unstructured jacket over a t-shirt. Regular shirts are just too uncomfortable and constrictive on a long-haul flight.
Niccolò P.’s collars stand firm and don’t become subsumed by a jacket, meaning that they appear almost shirt-like when worn even with more structured pieces. I can now look elegant whilst travelling, wear my formal jackets during trips and not have to worry about getting shirts ironed whilst on holiday.
The collars are just the tip of the iceberg, I’m a real sucker for small details and love the crow’s foot stitching on the mother-of-pearl buttons. The use of innovative, natural fabrics also means that I can look good in even the hottest of climates and not worry about creasing or perspiration. I also can’t say enough good things about the slim and tailored fit. Niccolò P. is the only brand whose polos I’ve never had to get altered, they’re cut for somebody who lives an athletic lifestyle and likes to stay in shape.
Having discussed some of the products which will be rolled out over the next few seasons, I’m very excited to see what the future brings…"
