Who's your Draddy? A modern take on a classic polo

By Marty Hackel

b-draddy-shirt.jpgBilly Draddy grew up in an environment where polo shirts had great significance. His great uncle, Izod founder Vin Draddy, was the original U.S. importer of Lacoste shirts. Billy has spent his career in apparel and now, at Summit Golf Brands, he has developed a very nice "capsule" line of shirts and shorts called B. Draddy.

The Liam polo ($90) pictured here is made of long-staple, Peruvian pima cotton -- the softest, best performing cotton you can find. It has a modern, tailored fit that makes it feel great to wear, and it's super-versatile. It works for golf, tennis, sailing, cocktail hour, whatever you're doing. More info.
