The Cashmere Polo is the sexiest shirt in the business. It's also butter soft and designed for maximum versatility. You can wear it on it's own (on skin or over a t-shirt), as well as layer it with everything in your closet; from suits, jackets and trousers to casual chinos, jeans and even athleisure.
This garment is part of our zero-waste knitwear collection; aka. the sustainable supply chain of the future. It's "3D knit" on-demand in Brooklyn New York, using a single piece of premium Scottish cashmere yarn and state-of-the-art knitting technology. There are no seams; which creates a garment that is durable and supremely comfortable - and most importantly - there is absolutely no wasted material in production or inventory.
Some people are surprised to learn that the Scottish cashmere story starts with goats. A hardy, mountain-dwelling breed that has adapted to the harsh environments and extreme temperatures of the Gobi Desert. To survive, the goats develop wonderfully thick coats made up of a coarse outer guard hair and a fine, soft undercoat . We use only the finest fibre – the white, downy undercoat that runs from the throat to belly.
This yields a tiny amount: it takes fibre from one goat to knit a scarf, three to make a sweater. Traditionally, farmers would collect cashmere fibre by ceremonially combing their goats in the Spring. Combing is still widely used today, alongside some farmers who prefer shearing.
There is simply nothing that compares to Scottish cashmere. The way it looks, how it feels, the way it drapes. With this one we've created a win/win; a sustainable garment of the highest quality.
“The quality of the fabric is amazing and it fits better than bespoke suits I’ve had made in England and NYC. I'm a AOS customer for life!"
"It's so refreshing to have actual experts reviewing my garments and listening to my feedback. The whole thing felt like a true bespoke experience."
"I just received my coat, suit and shirt. I am blown away! All three are 100X better in person than they are in the pictures. I just placed my next order :)"
