Just wondering about collars.

I have heard that RL polo collars get creased and messed up after a couple of washes.
How can I prevent this?

Thanks

Invest in an iron. Or a steamer.

In terms of durability - Lacoste

Lacoste quality is a step above RL.They keep their shape, collars and otherwise, alarmingly well. Another plus for the lacoste polos are mother of pearl buttons, which RL's are lacking to my knowledge.

My ranking would be this:

 

1. Burberry
2. Lacoste
3. Ralph Lauren
4. Brooks Brother
5. Boss
6. Fred Perry
7. Nautica
8. Penguin
9. Canterbury
10. Abercrombie and Fitch
11. Tommy Hilfiger

RL custom fits keep their shape as well, right?

Why do you rank Tommy Hilfiger last?

I just noticed I says "Blue Label" on the tag if my RL custom fit polo.

I thought Blue Label was for women, no? Is this a mistake on the sticker?

I also realized the sticker says "PRL Classics", but as you can clearly see its a custom fit, not a classic fit. Why is that?

Not a fan of Burberry so I may be biased to not put them on the top.

I would add BB Black Fleece up there with Lacoste and BB Country Club right above regular BB.

I feel like I may do some thread necromancy here to interject that I really like Boast polos.

 

Just don't buy anything else from them unless you like overpaying for an inferior product.

Kent Wang polos are the best for the $ .

I own Burberry, Lacoste Ralph, yadda yadda. It's all about the Wang in regard to Polos teacha.gif

I can only compare Lands End, Burberry Brit, and Polo RL. The RL is by far the best of the 3. More substantial fabric. I got the Burberry Brit as a gift and it was the worst of the three. Almost shockingly thin cheap fabric, already fading after 3-4 washes. I wonder if it was fake. I specify that it is a Burberry Brit, since I believe that is their low-end line, so that might be the problem (but still, they list for $150). The LEs are decent for the price, I pick them up on sale for anywhere from $9 to $15. I wear them golfing, one is fading around the collar after one season. But this included some days of golfing in near 100 degree heat. They did the job.

I always loved Brooks Brothers Polos. Brand isn't very well known among my age group so I get no heat from others if I were to wear Polo by Ralph Lauren or something. But honestly, Abercrombie ranks last for me, and while I had a Lacoste phase, and I can see their appeal, I just don't wear 'em anymore. Always shrink on me and the colors are always too bright. Personal taste. Other two I like on that list are Burberry and Penguin.
