Allen Solly Menswear
Resurgence of preppy sport as a category internationally has come well together with Allen Solly; revamping its Sport shirt category to reflect the original brand vision of 'Friday Dressing'.

Bright colours with rich, lightweight fabrics in classic stripes to tartans form the crux of the collection. With 'Nautical' as the theme, the line comprises blues as the staple colour with dashes of red, green and yellow complementing the breezy white and navy colouration.

Allen Solly's premise of an alternative work wear look comes across in the classic patterns contemporarised with inventive yet pleasing colours.

The sport lifestyle look is completed with great washed chinos called the Authentic Chinos in various textures and washes. The polo-tee is given a fresh new twist with relevant badges and colour blocking.

Blazers or Sport Coats are a recent addition to the range to complete the Prep-School look. Sport coats, soft and light weight, lend themselves to team up with the colourful sport shirts and the washed chinos for that ideal Friday Dressing look.
