Jacob is not your average short sleeve polo shirt. Jacob is a lightweight Sea Island Cotton knit, grown and spun in the West Indies before being knitted and garment dyed in Europe. Sea Island Cotton fibres are cultivated exclusively on the West Indies Islands in the Caribbean where the tropical climate produces what are considered the most luxurious cotton fibres in the world.
Sea Island Cotton comes from the seed of the Gossypium Barbadense plant which produces the longest fibres in the world with pile lengths of more than 50mm. Genuine Sea Island Cotton is the rarest type of cotton, making up less than 0.0004 percent of the world’s cotton production. The West Indian Sea Island Cotton Association (WISICA) inspects and certifies every kilogram of locally produced cotton and the hologram on our swing tag is a sign of 100% authentic Sea Island Cotton.
The Jacob is an incredibly durable garment. The fabric is considered the strongest naturally grown cotton in the world which means it will resist wear and last a lifetime. The definition of a luxurious investment. The fabric also has an unrivalled softness as the long staple yarns create a smooth and silky surface. This is not cotton as you know it. Featuring a ribbed collar, mother of pearl buttons, knitted back neck tape to minimise stretching and tubular knit hem and cuffs, the devil really is in the detail with our Jacob collection.
Designed to sit in our lounge and leisurewear collections, this smart polo can withstand heavy-duty relaxing, sport, holidays, informal and sophisticated events alike and generally every way you enjoy your free-time. The Jacob, seen here in burgundy, is perfect layered under other pieces, but honestly, you won't want to cover up this beauty.
The model is 6'1" / 185cm tall with waist size 31” / 79cm, chest size 38” / 96cm. He wears a size Medium.
