"In a shirt so soft you it'll make your coziest sweats feel like your stiffest jeans by comparison—accessorized with some not-so-subtle hints of gold jewelry—Jay-Z models the type of relaxed elegance you'd expect to see from an artist, not unlike his wife, with nothing left to prove and no one to best but himself. And shit, man, if Jay's cosign isn't enough of a justification to cop what in the hell is?"
"When it comes to swimwear, guys need a sturdy fabric that performs well in the water, dries quickly out of it, and still looks appropriate if you want to venture off the beach for a negroni. Tombolo achieved exactly that, with an easy, not-too-tailored cut, coupled with its delightfully kitsch and modern flair."
"Tombolo became the hottest shirt of summer after only being in the market for less than a year ... Today, the brand rolls out quilted jackets embellished with Tombolo-esque motifs, with quilted bucket hats to match."
"The cult-favorite brand Tombolo has released a new collection of lightweight quilted jackets just in time for the holiday season."
"Taking inspiration from old movies, resort photos from the ‘50s and ‘60s, and their own digital archive of vintage Hawaiian shirts, Galasso and Sard launched Tombolo with a small collection of soft, unisex shirts in muted color-block or sun-faded, vintage-style prints."
"Anyone can look good in these shirts, and there's something about them that turns heads. Maybe it's that you can tell their vibe is new and fresh. Maybe it's that piping that makes you pause. Or maybe it's simply because it's a shirt that, no matter who's looking at you, is going to spark a "Where'd you get that?" It's hard to bring people together these days. I'm not mad at the thought of a shirt doing its small part."
"The duo of short-sleeved shirts come complete with a combination Tombolo's street-to-beach style and the impressively chic design Neelen has brought to her Hôtel Magique brand—which is not an actual hotel, but is made to remind you of how you feel at one."
"Wonderfully ironic, once-kitsch, and currently the hottest shirt of the summer."
"Tombolo’s designs have found the perfect median between whimsy, vintage, cool, and modern—no easy feat when you think of honoring such iconic garb.'\'
"Tombolo takes all of summer's favorite subjects—fish, crustaceans, gators, flamingos—and deploys them in bold, can't-not-notice fashion."
"But there’s one brand dedicated exclusively to giving the tropical island shirt a fresh, new, nongendered narrative with its original artwork and flair of styling. We’re talking about Tombolo, the Brooklyn-based brand rescuing the Hawaiian shirt from the kitschy, ironical clothing category."
