Love the red and white stripes.
Hate the black and white stripes!

How about a link Syd?

Edit - don’t worry I found them at Nordstrom rack. Solid in the back with no stripes. I’ll pass - way too many polo shirts now!

Ah, Black and White army. .

Skunks, bar codes etc etc!
There’s a strong rumour going round that a bunch of billionaires including Michael Dell (yeah that Dell) are poised to buy out SAFC and pump loads of cash into the club. The mags have been for sale for ages with no takers and their fans are absolutely seething that they never got bought.

Sorry back to polo shirts!

If l were an SAFC fan , which lm not , I'd be more concerned about being 2 leagues below the Toon than who has the best owner. .

Well of course this is true but with so much doom and gloom over the last several years we’ve got to take our laughs when we can get them. Negotiations ongoing.

Any chance we can send Cack Boss back to you? Thought we’d have learned our lesson with the last humourless dour scotch mood hoover.

Not a big fan of cricket jumpers, they're one of those things that look better on paper than in real life, so to speak, but this Lacoste one is a beauty: 160 at Yoox now, but it'll get discounted sooner or later:

Quite liking this - and allegedly a bargain too...

For the pocket-sized forumistas only though...

Not bad, Bingo, but not sure about the black stripes on the pockets

To be honest, I wouldn't wear these, a bit too loud for me, but they are quite interesting, and not the sort of thing Trojan has done before AFAIK. The Knit Polos have very large collars, along the lines of the DNA Groove ones .

There are some more pictures on the Atom Retro site (though they have mostly sold out). I think the collar is a bit small, but the brown "yardie Cardie" type thing is quite nice looking https://www.atomretro.com/product_info.cfm?product_id=35888&d=trojan-records-mod-cable-knit-polo-cardigan-brown - looks a step or two  up from the cheap and cheerful "Madcap" type ones

Those Trojan tops don't just look like Caudio's, in my opinion they look more like a rip off. The cardigan thing looks very similar, the collars on the polos look identical to a DNA top that I have. It cant be right ( again in my opinion)..

The difference being that the one by Cladius is in merrino and the Trojan number is in cotton , which , may well account for the price difference . .
I wont make any deals with you , I've resigned. .
I wont be pushed, filed , stamped , indexed , briefed , debriefed OR NUMBERED!

Claudio is aware. Posted a pic of his and theirs side by side on his Instagram account. Being his usual cool and pragmatic self, but reading between the lines, he's not happy. Understandably
