What is a good polo shirt brand. I need very high quality polos with real pearl buttons. - Page 3

post #31 of 53
I have a couple of Cucinelli polos in the slim fit.
The quality is very high, the fabric is thick but slightly elasticated and very breathable.
The stitching is fantastic and the MOP buttons are great too.

One of the polos even has a small placket and stiffened collar, almost a cross between a shirt and a polo.

I would highly recommend them.

I have Lacoste ('98 made in France), Smedley and Sunspel..All great quality. But IMO, best bang for your bucks, Kent Wang is my choice.

I hate wearing polo shirts and find that most fit horribly. I recently tried going the MTM route and had one made from a company called Vastrm that a local shop owner introduced me to. The slim fit version of their shirts fit great, are very nice quality, and you can customize many small details like the placket, the buttons, and the material. The price is reasonable as well.

I can only think of Lacoste with pearl buttons.

if you find the shirts you like. but they have plastic buttons?
just buy the MOPs and sew them on.
if its that important then its worth the effort..

Hello gents,  We are a new affiliate member to the SF community and  I was perusing the site on polo shirts and came across this somewhat dated string.  Perhaps we can revive this discussion thread.  We at VASTRM offer some of the highest end luxury style polo shirts around.  We currently have been selling along side Cucinelli, Loro Piana, Kiton, etc... in high end boutiques here in the Bay Area.  We also launched an online store that allows our customers to custom style their own unique flavor of shirt.  You can select from a variety of trim types from placket accents to side vents to fits to collar and cuff construction.  We will soon be offering complete custom sizing as well to ensure each individual shirt we make fits your unique body style.  We like to think that polos can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion and season.  And our 100% cotton knits are some the most durable fabrics around, resisting shrinking, pilling, and fading.  Would love to get some of you folks to try us out.  We had a really successful black friday promotion (see below ad) and will be launching our first holiday promotion next week.  We can do some creative things if requested as well, such as long sleeve versions of any of our styles with one button cuff constructions.  We can construct mandarin style collars.  Most importantly, we can custom adjust sizing to fit any style preference or body type.  And none of our shirts have any logos!

 

We also thought of creating a unique collection or style just for SF members.  We can collaborate with the community on what styles  might work.  Ping us if you would like to participate.  jtang@vastrm.com

 

Let us know what you think!  We are eager to hear. 

 

Jonathan

Sounds great. Do you ship internationally?

I have worn RL, Lacoste, Kent Wang, and Olebar Brown. The OLs are the best in class - by a mile! If you can swallow spending $250 for a polo (and I say you should; spend whatever it takes and that you can afford to ave the best of whatever you wear), then get the OLs - now.

I personally like Vineyard Vines and Brooks Brothers. Cant go wrong.

For the money LL Bean mesh polos are excellent.
In any case they fit me very well, better than Lacoste.

I have just received some Sunspel piques, bought on their sale. Very tight knit, and they fit me well. I think I have found my "one" polo shirt. Only downside is plastic buttons, but you can always buy some MOP seperate and get them sewn on if you really want to.

Hope that this true. I bought an OB polo from forum member ATS last week. It's waiting for me when I arrive back in the States after a business trip to Asia. Can't wait to try it on (Merry Christmas to me!).

 

Looks like he might still have the Size S in Navy available on B&S.
