The Talladega Polo By Billy ReidBy Jeffrey Hyatt
Maybe you’re lucky enough to be heading down to Florence, Alabama the first weekend in June for a party known as The Shindig; for the past two years, Billy Reid (the guy and his company) throws this weekend-long bash for friends and family that’s filled with live music, good food, boating and booze. If you’re not on the coveted guest list and feel like crashing, well, perhaps something from the Billy Reid collection might help you gain access to a weekend of southern-fried fun.
It’s going to be toasty down south in June so the Talladega Polo – new for spring from Billy Reid – is going to serve you well. Cut trim in pique cotton with contrast stitching detail, the Talladega Polo features cotton sheeting on the placket and under the collar.
Four natural mother of pearl buttons line the placket. The shirt is available in four colors: red, white, light blue and navy. Becasue the polo is cut trim, they recommend jumping up a size for a looser fit. The polos are available from small to xx-large.
