This is true. But just work hard for a few years (and refrain from having kids; this is crucial), and you, too, will be in the lap of luxury!

I've heard good things about Kent Wangs Polos. I do not have personal experience with them. Maybe someone can chime in about them or you could ask in the KW thread.

+1 - especially if the concern is floppy collars

Thank you for the advice, but I tend to refrain from ordering things from the US nowadays. Shipping can take very long, 3-4 weeks, things get stuck at customs and when you get charged it's usually 30% of the retail price+shipping. For example, I bought two ties about 5 weeks ago and they still haven't arrived.

I have a Kent Wang and quite like it. I saw the Eidos polo collars that Nick Pollica was sporting and thought they looked quite rakish, a bit higher, more like a shirt collar. KW's polos have a slightly higher collar band than a typical polo, which often has none and looks like shit. Still, I would like something between KW's and Eidos, though I'd definitely buy another KW. Still, really, how many polos does one need?

 

I've also tried one from Billy Reid, which is not as good as the KW, IMO (thinner MOP buttons, some design elements that seem to me unnecessary, though it makes it stand out, wimpier collar). Still, it's not bad, and back in the day, you could get one for $30 at Mr. Porter in the sale.

What did you buy?

Didn't think about that. Have you ever tried Polos from Charles Tyrwhitt?

Not to derail, but since we are on summer shirts, I've sort of maxed out blue summer casual patterns. Light blue and navy gingham (small scale), some blue chambray/mottled linen or linen/cotton. Would like to get a blue university stripe, but I'm becoming monotonous.

 

Am thinking of a tobacco brown and solid navy linen, and perhaps some stripes in other colors (e.g. red, brown, gray). But this is all within the same area!

 

Madras would be great. But can I ask thread participants for their top two summer patterns that are different from what I have or am thinking about for inspiration (and pics would be awesome).

Yes, that's the idea. Yours?

Black and dark brown 3.25" wide knit ties with a pointed end from the knottery. I was inspired by B&Tailor's Liverano ties, but not willing to pay Liverano prices just yet. I won't wear the ties tied as long as they do either.

No but it soon will be. Another Gent posted it in the Propercloth thread last week. http://www.styleforum.net/t/380371/proper-cloth-official-affiliate-thread/180#post_7174627

Is this BNTailor? The bottom I have in some form or another (two different shades of blue), but it also looks the nicest of the bunch! The middle is too bright but I can see certain complexions looking smashing in it. I'm not feeling the first, though I like the green in principle.

 

I'm thinking if not BD, then a cutaway (was it TM79 or Europrep who posted an Inglese red gingham cutaway in the NMWA or WAYWRN thread...thought it made for a nice, non-floppy, non-BD casual collar). So of the three collars, on the first green shirt's.
