"At coLLo we’re not just a clothing brand, we’re a life story. It all started when a love of golf turned into an obsession, and the unforeseen consequences that followed.
I’d been putting the hours in out on the course, working on my long game under the sun, and topping up my tan along the way. I felt great, but something was bothering me in the back of my mind. I had a bit of redness on the back of neck, and something told me it might not be normal sunburn. I booked in to see my dermatologist and found out that I had skin cancer...
Somehow my love for the outdoors and spending time in the sun had put my quality of life in danger in a way I could have never imagined. I went in for surgery, made a full recovery, and decided right there and then that I needed to change something.
I searched everywhere for a UV 50+ polo that combined performance, sun protection and style but I just couldn’t find one. That’s why I made my own and added my signature smart coLLar to protect the neck in style.
That’s how coLLo was born, and we haven’t looked back since.” - Tom coLLo
