There’s nothing particularly innovative about the Criquet Shirts‘ made in America polos.
And that’s exactly as it should be.
Criquet’s version has all the hallmarks of the classic polo shirt: three button placket, ribbed sleeves, pique cotton fabric. It is, by any objective measure, an exceptionally well made product.
I picked up my Criquet polo late last year, when we made a pilgrimage to Criquet Shirts’ clubhouse in Austin.
Having already worn the shirt a few times, I can attest to its charms. It’s a deep navy, one shade brighter than midnight. As such, it’s a perfect neutral, and it matches well with gray trousers, with khakis, with Nantucket reds and with white linen.
