Can anyone please tell me if lacoste polos stretch a lot after a year?
I don't want to spend this kind of money in something that will stretch 2 and a half sizes bigger!
The basic Lacoste in the US is $90 retail now and they go higher.
And btw, a dozen countries call their money the dollar so it means nothing as far as the exchange rate and does not mean that one is worth more or less in relation to the US dollar. The HK dollar is 7:1 to the US. What are they teaching you boys today in economics!
Another thing about Lacoste is that make many different cuts from the regular to the ultra slim so READ the discriptions on the site for the model you want.
The models on the Lacoste site are all wearing size 4 which fits a man with a 40" chest (you allow 4" on knit shirts for movement)
Lacoste also uses a tigher grading and each size is only 1.5"difference, unlike other makers where it's more like 4" between a S-M-L etc
And Lacoste do not shrink.
All shirts stretch a little as you're wearing them due to movement esp. when you buy them too tight but go back to original size after washing.
Lacoste has sites for every country but only the US one sells online. Looks like Lacoste UK does now too, But the US always has the lowest prices and there are always reductions. The $90 shirt sells for 75 pounds ($120)on UK Lacoste.I was looking for a jacket on the UK and it was 200 pounds ($320) but it's only $250 on the US site and is on sale for $112.
Clothes are always cheaper in the US than they are even in countries where they are made for some reason which is why I never buy anything while traveling. Why pay more and then have to carry it. I don't recommend buying anything by mail either from other countries.
And btw, the BB polos are excellent and have always been made in Hong Kong (now labelled made in China) ad although I'm not slim I always get the slim cut, it fits better.
To the guy in Australia I don't know what they stock there but if they don't have the slimmer Lacostes I wouldn't buy it because the regular is a bit boxy.
