Boss Tweed
Ties? Yes, Ties!

And more ...

Somehow, it just wouldn’t feel like autumn here at Polo without having a little big tweed in your wardrobe – crunchy wools in checks of cognac and camel or charcoal and grey that have been exploded this season in size to become statement pieces worth notice, whether as a suit, a vest or even a down jacket.

In addition to a mix of notes on other matters of style, we’ve also put together a special package of stories on the meaning of the necktie. Polo started, as you probably know, as a tie business. But Polo style has always been point and counterpoint. As many times as Ralph has worn a tie, he has worn a T-shirt or a flannel or a turtleneck. When you don’t wear a tie all the time, in other words, it makes the moments you do all the more important, and we think that’s worth considering.

Pattern Matters

Exploding the size of iconic tweed patterns to turn three-piece suits, Polo coats and blazers into statement pieces worth notice

To start, it would seem relevant to briefly mention a detail or two from the history of tweed. The fabric, as you may have guessed, was invented in the Scottish Highlands to shield farmers and field workers from the cold, damp climate. From there, it caught the attention of the sportier members of the English upper class, who adopted it as a go-to uniform for their favourite country pursuits – shooting, fishing, hunting and generally mucking about. The patterns they chose – Glen plaid, herringbone, houndstooth, windowpane – could also be customised and smartened up for more formal occasions.

Ralph has been developing unique tweed patterns with some of the oldest mills in the British Isles for almost four decades. The fabrics are exclusive to our collections – and distinctly Polo, if you know what to look for.

Old Fashioned

Origin

The Old Fashioned is, of course, a classic cocktail. But – just like a tweed jacket or a repp tie – that doesn’t mean it can’t be reinterpreted with a Polo sensibility. As with everything else we do, we start by choosing only the best ingredients, including a bourbon unique to The Polo Bar – a single-barrel Woodford Reserve selected for its profile of spice, leather and stone fruit. What makes our Old Fashioned unlike any other is its aromatic complexity, which we have perfected by using a mélange of three different bitters.

Ingredients & Recipe

  • 1 dash Wormwood bitters
  • 2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 2 teaspoons demerara syrup
  • Add ice
  • Add 2.5 oz. Woodford Reserve bourbon
  • Stir 30 rotations
  • Garnish with lemon and orange twist

Cheers!
