VANS – Classic Polo

VANS have started to take their apparel very seriously. You only have to walk in to the store in Carnaby Street these days to realise that there are fresh threads everywhere on sale. We decided to find out whether they are actually worth you picking up and got our hands on a new Classic Polo shirt to see what all the fuss was about.

The first thing you realise is that this shirt is not your average polo material. Most people at some point in their lifetime would have thrown on a polo but this material feels bespoke to the brand who have bought skate shoes for generations since 1966.

A blend of 96% cotton and 4% spandex feels soft to the skin and gives your body plenty of movement. The shirt is not overbranded, something i have noticed on all of the current wave of Vans Apparel. It comes with only a miniature classic slip on image and should be on your body.
