To celebrate the launch of our Slim Fit Polo Shirt, we teamed up with six men and their dogs, asking them why the polo, a garment that stands the test of time as a wardrobe staple, is man’s other best friend!

We also had a Q&A session with each gent on their pooch and what it takes to #BeAnOriginal!

First up is Model, Amar Daved.

Check out the exclusive Q&A below!

Your dogs name?

Hugo.

How long have you had your dog?

A year and a half.

How did you and your dog come to find each other?

I’ve always wanted a dog and was looking at frenchies in the summer of 2014. I visited a breeder down in Kent. Saw Hugo Sheepishly sitting in the corner with the rest of his litter. When I picked him up I knew straight away I wanted to take him home.

Has your dog ever saved the day?

Never, he’s not exactly lassie.

How does your dog make you feel?

Makes me feel grown up. I Didn’t realise how much they become your life and a huge responsibility. I would never change it as he has matured me a lot!

What is the best, funniest, embarrassing or naughtiest story about your dog?

Probably the time I left him with my flatmate as I was playing football. I had about 10 missed calls from him saying Hugo had done a toilet in the flat, then ate it. Then 5 minutes threw it all up again!

What does it mean to Be An Original?

To be unique! Thinking outside the box and never staying in your comfort zone.

If you could have a drink with anyone who would it be?

Ricky Gervais, met him briefly in LA but you know you’re not going to stop laughing with him.

What are you working on right now?

I have been in L.A for 2 months and signed to an agency. So I’m heading back out there to shoot in the summer.

Keep a look out for more Q&A’s with the gents from our Polo and the Dog project and relive the full video of the shoot below:
