If their “No Bunk! No Junk!” collection for Barneys wasn’t good enough, Band of Outsiders has just released their “This is Not a Polo Shirt Collection” for pre-order. Scott Sternberg designed 34 absolutely killer polo shirts that could very well be the must-have items this Spring/Summer. This is a brilliant play to separate yourself from the masses of Lacoste and Ralph Lauren polo-wearers, but you should get on it quickly, because we could very easily see these selling out very fast.
We’ve selected five of our favorite pieces from the collection for your viewing experience. Sternberg has really done well to keep these simple and classic, because too often we see people trying to reinvent the polo with overly modern detailing. Many of the shirts have been knit with A-Girls in Japan who use rare (2 in the world!) machines that can produce a high-gauge cotton pique that is super-light and unbelievably durable. The shirts go for $175 a pop. You can check out and pre-order the full collection here.
