The construction quality between all these brands is about the same. I get all my polos altered, so cut is not an issue. Plus, all three lines offer tons of colors and patterns so for me the issue boils down to which logo I prefer to sport. Vintage Lacoste may have been edge three years ago but with the popularity of the Lacoste revival, I believe it has become far too common. I prefer vintage Penguin (aka Munsingwear). Even Original Penguin (the recently revived brand) is far less popular than Lacoste. In fact, I can't say that I've seen more than five people sporting the Penguin logo this year. Plus vintage is more legit than the revival stuff. Le Tigre is just a joke. A lame JC Penney brand. I wonder if anyone is going to revive this brand too? The RL horsey has always been a mainstay. It's never all that cool, but will never go out of style. A few years ago it would've been quite embarassing to be caught with a Lacoste (and to a lesser degree Penguin) polo but the RL horsey is far more immune from fashion trends. Yes, logo obsession is all incredibly superficial.
