Victorinox Monaco Polo
Last May we traveled to Monaco for the Historique Vintage Car Races. Monaco, a tiny principality along the spectacular Cote d'Azure, is a magnet for wealthy Europeans — drawn to its stunning harbor and complete absence of income taxes. Prince Albert (son of Grace Kelly) and his efficient government are handsomely funded by revenue from legalized gambling — most of which occurs in the historic Casino de Monte-Carlo. We stayed at the elegant Hotel de Paris, and immediately realized that an upgrade to our attire would be well advised in order to feel completely comfortable in this tiny principality with the highest per capita income of any country in the world! Fortunately, an exclusive gentleman's salon in the lobby had a good selection of these Victorinox Pique Polo shirts and light-weight shorts — well suited to the semi-tropical climate along the Cote d'Azur. Subtle details abound, like the embroidered under sleeve eyelets that let you ventilate — when sultry humidity makes it hard to maintain your cool. The polo features a blend of 97% Cotton Pique and 3% Spandex that creates a stretch fabric that holds its shape better, and lets you move freely. Victorinox signature dropped-tail hem stays tucked in; flat knit collar and cuffs won't wilt with washing. And the iconic Victorinox Cross & Shield crest, embroidered at the chest, is your assurance of impeccable Swiss craftsmanship. The men's Victorinox short features a flat front and is constructed from Repeloff® fabric which is quick drying and stain resistant (54% Cotton & 46% Nylon) and a hidden double front pocket zips closed to keep personal items secure. 10" inseam. Choose polo in Red, Slate, Blue, Yellow, Charcoal, Orange, Olive, Navy; or Black or White in sizes S-XXL. Choose shorts in Concrete or Navy in waist sizes 30-40.
