Inspired on a trip to Italy, Allen Stephenson would go on to found Southern Tide Men's Collection, a line of menswear that brings the clean lines and craftsmanship of Europe and the old world to the American South. Everything from the architecture of the buildings to the curves of the sports cars opened his mind while Stephenson was abroad, and when he returned home to the Coast of South Carolina, he began working on the first design, the Skipjack Polo.
This unassumingly stylish polo set a new industry standard in comfort and construction. Allen considered every detail from the yarn and fabric, to the fit and finish in order to create a modern version of the classic polo-style shirt, and he didn’t stop there. Over time, he designed an entire collection of men’s wardrobe standards focused on the same ideals as his Skipjack Polo.
From woven sport shirts to Channel Marker Khakis, the eye for detail is undeniable in every piece of Southern Tide men’s clothing, with touches like navigational colored button thread lending a certain level of sophistication to this Southern brand.
