Howlin’ x Oi Polloi: Mister Wong Polo

What’s better than a polo shirt made of towels?

In Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the guide reads:

“A towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.” 

Well, there’s an improvement on that: if your shirt is made of towel, you can even wear it. 

Howlin’ are from Antwerp and they make polos and t-shirts and long sleeves all from towels.

Self-professed big fans of towels, Oi Polloi has joined Howlin’ to co-designed one of Howlin’s Mister Wong polos – a classic long sleeve polo in an irresistibly soft yet textured towelling fabric.
