Billy Nachman and Hobson Brown had been looking for the perfect polo since they met at an all-boys school in Manhattan, where the shirt was standard-issue. Years later, over a round of golf and a few beers, the two decided to take a swing at making some themselves. Austin-based Criquet combines the rakish, old school golf style of guys like Arnold Palmer and Dean Martin with the irreverent twist of Caddy Shack. Cut from organic cotton and washed for softness, what we really appreciated after recently trying them out were the details—double stitching, a trim but not snug fit and a secret pen stash in the flap pocket. In golf lingo: they excel at their short game.
