Fresh Polos - Splendid Mills - John Varvatos
Strangely, it took an attorney to create the world's perfect t-shirt. In 1992, Moise Emquies, a law school graduate waiting for his California bar results, was invited by a friend to design a t-shirt for her clothing store. His first rayon t-shirt design quickly sold out.
Ten years later, Emquies discovered the softest fabric and most color absorbing yarn combination: 50% supima luxurious cotton and 50% super-soft rayon that absorbs dyes deeply. So perfect, he called it Splendid.
A full t-shirt collection was launched in 1972 which has grown into an extensive collection of t-shirts, polo shirts and other apparel. Splendid's shirts have been featured in countless magazines, movies and television and is known for its clean, simple and effortless styling.
John Varvatos is a brand that occupies a unique place in the landscape of American design. It unites old world craftsmanship and refined tailoring with modern innovations in textiles and a rock 'n' roll sensibility.
Launched in 2000 with a collection of tailored clothing and sportswear, the brand now represents an entire lifestyle that includes polo shirts, footwear, bags, eyewear and fragrances.
