The favorite one I have is a slim rl blue label, which is a very british tartan blue-red-green. I also have an more flannelly custom fit from their regular polo line. Re-done grunge.
A silk button-up? I think that's too gawdy to wear with anything.
I really liked some RL plaids from last season, but the problem is they aren't slim cut. If they fit through the body, the arms are too short.
Agree with flame on well fitted solids. They aren't middle america, and they never go out of style.
