The Monocle and the Fox

When it comes to polo shirts, it’s a fine line between Connery’s Bond hitting the links in Goldfinger and, well, this. Good rule of thumb? Stick to primary colors and wear only when playing or watching some kind of competitive sport. Or barbecuing– the grill gets a pass. Just because the polo is your go-to shirt when neckwear or stiffer collars are a bit too formal doesn’t mean you should skimp on quality. Parisian label Kitsuné has teamed with the retail arm of Monocle magazine to produce four maille piquée cotton polos, all in colors (alpine, carmine, marine, and white) exclusive to the collaboration. The traditional animal chest logo, in Kitsuné’s case a fox, has been moved to the bottom hem and given the monochromatic treatment. Like all Kitsuné products, these are hand-made in France, giving you the chance at a French polo with nary a crocodile in sight… not that there’s anything wrong with that.
