Originally designed in the 1950s for the heat of the French Riviera, the Riviera Polo Shirt is light and breathable due to its unique fabric structure. Re-tailored in 2006 for Daniel Craig as James Bond in Casino Royale, it is now a modern classic.
The Riviera Polo Shirt was redesigned by Lindy Hemming to meet the demands of a more active Bond character allowing Craig to move more cleanly and easily in action... Sounds like you right.
Daniel Craig Casino Royale
A brief timeline of the men's Polo Shirt...
- Starting off in the early 1920s the polo shirt took center stage on the Tennis Courts allowing players to move easily.
- It was then taken to the streets of London as the symbol of an emerging ‘youthquake’ in the '60s.
- In the '70s, Mr. Ralph Lifshitz (also known as Ralph Lauren) set up his casual wear company ‘Polo’ and added his signature Horse onto their Polo's.
- And finally, enter James Bond in 2006 who did away with any decorations or add ons resulting in the most elegant version.
