"" wondermomo: PAUL AND SHARK

Wednesday, August 5, 2009


Created in 1977 as an offshoot of a family-owned business -- the Dini clan has produced knitwear since 1957 after taking over a factory in the little hamlet of Masnago, Varese, just north of Milan -- Paul and Shark is a maker of quality sportswear that lets its mighty shark logo do the talking.
As rich as the legend is, Paul and Shark did not derive its name from the 1975 movie “Jaws”, but was actually named after a phrase that the son of the founder had seen in Maine on the sail of an old clipper.
First conceived as a line for those who sailed or raced yachts, Paul and Shark continues to create great yachting clothes even as it has morphed gracefully into spirited, timeless sportswear.
Apart from being adept at handling the elements whilst keeping the wearer looking youthfully sophisticated, Paul and Shark polos & shirts often incorporate nautical themes & tropical accents, making them perfect for the city or walking around a resort in these parts.
Ladies, cadet & golf collections have also been introduced through the numerous Paul and Shark stores worldwide. (Across Asia alone there are over 50 Paul and Shark stores!)
