Summer 2016: It's the Season for Polo Shirts

Unlike other seasons, Summertime reminds us that we’re happiest when the mood is a little more at ease — and the very nature of the season brings a more relaxed approach to our days. One that that can help amplify that good mood is the classic element of every guy’s summer wardrobe — the polo shirt. And true to form, the Carbon2Cobalt 2016 Summer Collection offers unique and refreshing approaches to looking sharp, yet staying comfortable — heat and all — with whatever C2C polo shirt you pull from your closet.

There are some new additions this year that are worth considering. Specifically, we’re excited to offer a new take on our bestselling Catalyst Polo — now in Salt with a tropical ocean inspired light blue and burst of fiery orange trim. Of course the original Catalyst Polo in Charcoal is also available and has a place in every guy’s wardrobe. 

The feel of the soft all-cotton slub knit in the Selvedge Polo is perfect for the season. If its color in either indigo or black look immediately appealing, it’s likely because the washed-down effect, goldenrod topstitching and metal alloy buttons are a subtle nod to the essential element in every guy’s closet — denim jeans. And just as you can dress jeans up with a blazer or keep them casual with a tee — this polo is versatile to step up and look sharp for time in the office or kick back with a beer and a night watching the game with friends. And if you like the idea of denim feel, but also prefer the classic rib-knit collar, also check out the best selling Jeans Splice Polo.

There’s something sporty and classically cool about the aptly named V12 Polo. Soft, lightweight heathered jersey polos in gray or a darker charcoal. Maybe it’s the the one-piece color-block knit collar, denim placket or contrast tipping at the sleeve opening — this polo looks sharp wherever you go.

Our entire Summer Collection offers details that are unique and standout, without yelling for attention. For a continued moto-feel, the Amplified Polo with its distressed wash finish and unique quilted shoulder gives a subtle nod to a guy who appreciates a custom cafe racer motorbike as much as a slow pour-over at his favorite local coffee place. 

Whether it’s a swimming pool, lake or ocean, summer brings an appreciation of time spent nearby your favorite spot — and the Aquatic Polo is a radiant, lightweight reflection of the water with it’s soft, striking space-dyed jersey striations of water-like colors. This makes for a great replacement to a day you’d normally grab a tee and takes up your natural coolness to a whole new level. 

In an equally striking rust color, texture of the waffle-knit Red Rock Polo has a classic, never-out-of-style feel with its lasting quality construction. From details like oxford trim along the inner neckline and placket to metal alloy buttons. This polo hints at your adventurous nature, while looking flattering and sharp for any occasion.

These are just a few highlights to just the polos and short sleeves in the Carbon2Cobalt Collection. Be sure to shop the entire array from shorts to sunglasses to tees to perhaps the coolest (and softest) beach blanket we’ve ever come across. Whatever you do, we encourage you to embrace the best of Summer and enjoy!
