Welcome to Style Spotting, a recurring column highlighting unique clothing and accessories worn by some of the most stylish men we know. This week: Tyler, the Creator’s Giannetti Factory polo shirt.
A full decade after the release of his arresting mixtape Bastard, Tyler, the Creator graced (hopped, really) the Recording Academy podium to accept his very first Grammy award for his smash album IGOR. The title track of his first release set out his plans all the way back in 2009 (“My goal in life is a Grammy, hopefully mom’ll attend the / Ceremony with all my homies”) and last night was a full-circle moment. Leading up to his overdue win, Tyler has built up a reputation as one of the sharpest artists to date, not only for his comedic endeavors and ever-progressing albums, but for his fashion sense.

He attended the award show sporting brown wide-leg pleated chinos, pink Wallabee shoes, a signature Golf Wang baseball hat and, most notably, a broad striped polo shirt. The shirt itself was custom-made for the Los Angeles artist by the Giannetti Factory, the same factory producing goods for some of today’s hippest up-and-coming brands like Reese Cooper, Staatsballett, Bare Knuckles, Billy and more.
The polo falls in line with Tyler’s signature golfer style and features broad undulating stripes in tonal cherry red and pink. Though Giannetti does produce their own goods (which have a tendency to sell out), fans can only hope this one-off polo will see a broader release.
