That's what I'm thinking. Plain navy mesh polo shirts all look the same, especially with a logo - they look like you got 'em for free at a dentist's convention. Cotton lisle, mercerized cotton, silk, or something luxurious would be more my speed, perhaps something with a little shine to it? I think I'll wait until I see these on clearance at my local Polo outlet... PS. LK, Yoox don't ship to Australia, unfortunately.

A few things concerning the new RLPL Polo's: While the fabric is really first class, not only does it have the pony on the shirt, but as well "Ralph Lauren" in italics a la Purple Label logo at the bottom of the front of the shirt. I am personally not partial to the pony (except for the pink pony, seeing as it is for a good cause) on the shirts, so you can imagine how I feel about the words scrawled at the bottom. As well, the shirts run large, very large; a size Small felt like a Medium / Large. The "˜old' RLPL shirts were true to size and had neither the pony nor the RL scrawling at the bottom. I will say this though; Ralph Lauren is a tucker, i.e. he likes to tuck his top clothing items, from polo shirts to sweaters, thus I can only assume that the logic behind the words at the bottom of the shirt would fall into the category of "the shirt is going to be tucked, so no one will see the words anyhow".

That's such b.s. No shirt fits that slim. You always see these models on retail websites showing off their 10-inch drops and the shirts fit like latex. Lets see the back of it. I got 10 bucks that says there's 4 inches of cloth bunched up around the rear belt loop.

Of course it looks that tight in real life. As long as you don't mind walking around with pins holing the fabric together in the back. The new RLPL Polo's are huge. There is good news though, the regular Blue label Polo's come in "˜Custom-Fit' size(s) which are much more slimmer than "˜Original' size(s). Jon.

Polo now has the slim fit polo shirt. It is not from the Purple Label line but the colors seem fairly attractive. I.e. black with a purple horse.

Not just colors, but you can customize the pony and polo color to your specifications / style: Original size: http://www.polo.com/cgi-bin....d=62707 Custom-Fit: http://www.polo.com/cgi-bin....d=58420 The best thing is for the forum members that do not take kindly to logos, you can get the pony to match the color of the shirt, thus the pony is almost invisible, only a faint outline is viable. Jon. And of course there is a picture of the collar popped up (come on Ralph, the 80's are over. {And you didn't go to Yale}):
