SunScreen50 Dry Knit 4-way Stretch Iris Long Sleeved Polo by Clare Hare of Darien Highly Recommended by Whom You Know! Bien Sur Mes Amies, the Best of New York is from Connecticut!

Clare Hare has done it again, and this may be our favorite piece we tried...
Look, Mover and Shaker Bill Knapp even matched the flowers to it.  Resort season is upon us, but even though the weather is much warmer down south, there are colder days and rainier days when you will want to wear something long-sleeves.  And this sharp number even has SPF in it to protect you all the time as the sun goes in and out of the clouds as it pleases.   The 
SunScreen50 Dry Knit 4-way Stretch Iris Long Sleeved Polo boasts luxurious, sporty Sun-protective fabric up to SPF 50, collar, long-sleeved, same colored buttons, princess seams for a flawless fit.  We've never felt such amazing fabric on a Polo before, and in yesteryear it was nicer to recall you knew the person behind the brand of this style shirt was directly involved.  You can return to that kind of relationship with your polo when you work with Clare, as she is the designer and CEO and is definitely directly involved.
And we just adore the attractive shade of violet!
Long sleeve with collar; 3 button plaquet; fitted through body; 99% Micropolyester/10% Lycra, Moisture Wicking UPF 50+

SunScreen50 Dry Knit 4-way Stretch Iris Long Sleeved Polo by Clare Hare is Highly Recommended by Whom You Know!

Clare Hare Darien is a female-founded company which designs and manufactures resortwear for women since 2004. The motivation for her business came from combining a background in finance and a love for textiles into an apparel design and manufacturing company--Clare knew how to sew and was a "numbers" person--therefore, a logical fit for the design of patterns and the logistics of manufacturing. Clare became interested in the plight of the Garment District in NYC and was committed to only manufacturing in the USA and keeping manufacturing and jobs alive in our own country. Several years later, having developed 10 best selling designs, the company sells to about 100 prestigious clubs in the USA across the country and has an active ecommerce website. 

Clare participates in selected trunk shows and has a partnership with the Melanoma Research Alliance, which receives 5% of sales of her sun-protective wear, and is devoted to research on how to end melanoma. Clare’s sun-resistant activewear features a long-sleeved shirt with built in fabric protection with the same defining characteristics of her line: classic, yet stylish, comfortable and great for travel--all made in the USA—of mostly all cotton, imported fabrics. Clare Hare’s apparel label includes: skorts, shorts, pants, short-sleeved polo shirts, tunics and casual dresses to be worn for golf and/or other resort activities: boating, biking or just shopping around town. Her clothing line exemplifies: fabulous patterns, distinctive trim, superior fit (with regulation hem length for golf) and flawless construction (made in NYC) which sets her apart from the rest of her competition. The firm has a loyal following from individuals, as well as distributing to top clubs around the country including: the Everglades Club and Maidstone Club, and upscale boutiques such as: the Darien Sport Shop and the Nantucket Hotel.
