Heritage Stripe Polo
The Heritage Stripe - it dates back to the original Boast Polos of the 70's and 80's. With a 1.5" wide stripe, color-blocked collar and Embroidered Logo, it’s an instantly recognizable piece of the Boast kit. The NEW Heritage Stripe Polo is a contemporary take on this vintage Boast style. Upgraded with the finest, softest Pima Cotton in the world (and a hint of stretch), the Heritage Stripe Polo combines performance and wearability with retro flare. Features include: contrast collar, inner-placket and vents, Three button placket, Genuine Mother of Pearl Buttons, slight tennis tail hem, and Boast Leaf at Wearer's Left Chest.
93% Peruvian Pima Cotton (the softest cotton in the world), 7% Stretch. Contrast Collar, Interior Placket and Vent. Embroidered Leaf Logo on Wearer's Left Chest. Three-Button External Placket. Genuine Mother of Pearl Buttons. Taped Seams. Bartack at Side Vent. Tennis Tail Hem.
The Heritage Stripe Polo is a classic fit - not too boxy, not too trim.
Founded in 1973 by a group of All-American collegiate squash and tennis players, Boast was created as the American answer to traditional European tennis brands.
With its irreverent attitude and subtly subversive approach to sport, Boast shares some of the same ethos that guides Rowing Blazers.
The ‘70s were a time of individuality. In tennis, it was an era of rebels who dominated the courts and culture at large. Like the American icons of the era, Boast developed a healthy sense of rebellious irreverence.
Boast’s celebrated logo - a Japanese Maple leaf (sometimes mistaken for another type of leaf) - has been spotted on piqué tennis shirts and warm-ups sported by the likes of John McEnroe, Donald Young, John Updike, George W. Bush, and, of course, Joel Goodsen — Tom Cruise’s character in Risky Business.
