I really love my Penguin polo. The fit is great and it was only $40 or $50.

I'd like to try one of these - how is their sizing due to shrinkage, with regards to before/after washing?

I'd be doing machine wash, gentle cycle, woolite or other mild detergent. Air Dry laid flat only.

btw, I used to do fine with land's end polos when I worked in the rough & tumble world of special ed. (dressy enough for those picnics and other outdoor trips, as I always worked summers). Not so chi-chi, I know but can't beat their bang/buck.

The BEST polo I've ever had hands down was a long sleeve Club Room, made in china and purchased at Macys in 1998 for a whopping $50. (It may have been on sale too....can't recall for sure). It just recently started showing signs of wear....It is a nice soft cotton, feels more like cashmere than any fine wools I've seen, and is the perfect thickness - not too thick or too thin.

I've searched high and low in Macys and everywhere else for a cotton polo like this and have never found its equal. I may email them with the style number to see if they still make it......or maybe I can have it cloned by a tailor!

Heh. I don't think they're high end per se, but my country gets Ralph Lauren polo outsourcing jobs, and I can grab them from very small export overrun lots for less than ten bucks apiece. Fun. A colleague just called me on a popped collar (inadvertently, from walking part way to work with a gym bag in tow) just now.

Softest polo I own- cotton knit from Malo. I can't imagine anything other than dry cleaning. Its really a delicate piece.

Best all-around - Ralph Lauren Purple Label: Ralph's pima cotton polos in the medium to lighter shades seem to hold their color well and the collars still look good.

Banana Republic: I didnt pay more than $25. Decent for bumming around, I'd rather buy the odd Hickey Freeman I find on sale.

Joesph Abboud: Another outscouring job. They can be frequently found on discount. The collars have held up quite well and the fabric is better than expected.

I refuse to buy Lacoste.

I just picked up 5 polos for $60 at a Van Heusen store on Long Island during a one day sale.

They look fine new but even if they disintegrate after half a dozen washings, at those prices I figure I still did okay!

I bought an alfani polo at Macy's last fall, hoping it would be similar quality to my old Club Room - it fell apart after one washing! needless to say I retured it for store credit

The sale section of has a James Perse tee for $9 right now. I'm sure the sizing is limited, but I'd check it out. It sure beats the $50 list price.

(I just checked it out) They probably have your size, and you can have whatever color you want, as long as it's yellow.

I been purchasing Burberry polos for this season. I have washed them and they've held together well. No fading or mishape to speek of, and I do hang dry them.
