The Grafters Collection for Spring/Summer 2012 is coming along nicely. The final edit of the Short Sleeve Polo has been produced and the only decision left is the choice of colours. As you can see we have a vast array to choose from.
The 80s Casuals Polo has certain characteristics including the contrast coloured buttons in our signature colours plus the new embroidered logo and the longer cut rear or 'Tennis Tail' as it is known, which helps prevent the shirt coming out of the shorts.
The 'Grafters Collection' is inspired by the early days of the culture and excursions to the sunny climes of Europe to such places as the South of France and Italy. It was here that the distinctive Continental styles and colours caught the eye of this new, young breed of traveller and it wasn't long before certain garments would be liberated from the stores.
Our inspiration comes from the colourful attire which would include pastel hues not usually sold in the UK at the time plus the use of contrast colours for Summer Cagoules and the ubiquitous Blouson usually sported on the cooler evenings.
The collection will be in stores in March 2012 as we hopefully look forward to the European Championships later that year.
