Making a splash with terry-towelling

The time of effortless travel seem like the days of yonder. With ample time now firmly wedged between the nonchalance of being able to check-in to your flight on the airport shuttle and the military-planning now required when going to visit your in-laws for a weekend, we’ve found ourselves feeling nostalgic for a spot of poolside culture; sun, speedos *ahem* and terry towel polo shirts.OLIVER SPENCER TERRY-TOWELLING PABLO PICASSOFirst developed in France, terrycloth dates back to the mid-1800s and was originally woven from silk, meaning it was a real premium fabric back in its early days. Over the next half-a-century it would evolve to the terrycloth we’re more familiar with today – soft, refined and defined by its absorbent qualities no more than its wearers, Messrs. Pablo Picasso and Sean Connery, to the man behind the polo shirt, Rene Lacoste.

The aforementioned gents knew everything there was to know about style and being tapped into the zeitgeist, so if Connery was reaching for terry-towelling, perhaps you need to catch up. The loose piling effect created in the weave process is what makes it so absorbent, but beyond the practicalities of the cloth, it's incredibly cool from afar on the eye, even more so than your average summer layer.
OLIVER SPENCER TERRY-TOWELLING SEAN CONNERYOur terrycloth range is featured in all the modern-classics; our Hawthorn polo shirt, a classic crew-neck T-shirt and lightweight jersey shorts – all perfectly weighted for the holiday season and designed with laidback off-duty in mind. Poolside is just the start as it falls perfectly into many situations we have become accustomed to. Whether you’re fortunate enough to be soaking up the sun by the pool this summer, or taking advantage of a slow Saturday morning with the French press and newspaper, two things are for certain... terry is your friend and you should not wear speedos to your in-laws.
