Polo War: Burberry vs Lacoste

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Which of these has better fitting, better looking polo:
Burberry, or Lacoste?

I love Burberry's plaid design, however Lacoste has an undeniable quality to theirs, in addition to its classic nature.

Simply put, i just want a nice everyday polo that fits well.

I'm a pretty skinny guy, 5'6" at about 115-120lbs.
I'm not sure which one would look right for me, and do you think one of the children's sizes might fit better?


thanks community

why don't you do a search to find out people's opinions on different brands of polos?

key word "polos" returns a bunch of threads on fred Perry, Lacoste, etc. with emphasis on cut within the first few pages.

I would say Lacoste, come on they are the Polo. They have tons of different colors, shades, and fits. Regular Burberry is cut larger.

I'm a really skinny guy: 6'1, 140lb, 35-6 shoulder. I hated the fit of the small Burberry polos when I tried them on. They fit in the shoulder and then fit like a box (think PRL "classic" fit). I can't comment on Lacoste though.

Burberry makes slim fits for polos which are pretty fitted. I bought some a few years back when they were still making things in England when the quality was still decent. Lacoste is just lacoste.

You see, the problem with PRL is that it's a shot in the dark with me. Sometimes i'll go and find a decent shirt that fits well but the durability and quality just isn't there. I did a little research and based on what people said, PRL has different qualities, depending on where the shirts are made and where they are sold. So, does anyone have any suggestions on where to buy some quality PRL 'custom fit' shirts? Thanks

This thread is an excellent demonstration of how SF works.

OP: Should I buy A or B?
SF: Buy C, noob.

or;

specific question raised - general discussion ensues.

With that said,

Burberry has a slightly higher price point and a cut clearly intended for overweight baby boomers; Lacoste isn't much better, with a fairly boxy cut and obnoxious branding, but I think it's the lesser of two evils here.

On this note, does anyone have any experience with the BoO polo shirts? Most of my polos are RLPL and PRL, so I would be interested in seeing how they compare.

BoO polo's are way to new for the members here. Have to wait till at least 30% off. I never tried James Perse polo's but i have a few size 1's pieces and they don't fit as slim as I would want. Fred Perry slim fit is nice, i fell in love with the FP x CDG. Too bad I can't get myself to buy a polo anymore.

yes RL custom fits are great, at the recent sale i picked up 3 in nice colors for $26 each.. unbeatable price too! buttons are mop, nice slim fit.

rlbl polos are also great, even slimmer, and more waist taper. i like them more but they are pretty expensive, still like 40-50 on sale.
