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".
