Polo-collar shirts - Page 3

post #31 of 40
Banks, I think that very good source for John Smedley's knitwear is Craglands (www.craglands.com). I don't know about prices in US stores, but Cragland's prices are smaller than those in John Smedley's own online store. And they have very knowledgable managing director (Christine Shaw). And they deduce VAT. And they charge very little for delivery. Andrey

Here's a vote for the American Apparel polo's. Good fabric and construction quality instead of great, but they fit and look better than anything else I've tried. Though they would be even better without the pocket. I'm not particularly fond of polo shirts - the AA's and one Brunello Cucinelli I have are the only ones I'll wear. The AA shirts are cut just like the Cucinelli.

I like these, but I think the 4th button might be one too many.

American Apparel products are terrific value for money, and I think that the 4th button adds a great touch. They great thing is that they are designed and priced to be lived in. You can toss them in the washer on a heavy cycle, and tumble dry them, and they keep looking good.

Any difference between the AA polos on the AA website and those offered on the txshirts.com website? The ones on txshirt (also AA brand) are half the price?

I think you misunderstood my post. I said *do not* buy Le Tigre, Polo, or Lacoste. And definitely don't go buying "The Original Penguin", unless you are, in fact, going for the "I'm a teenager from the suburbs of Boise, Idaho (note to self - find out if Boise in fact has suburbs). What's wrong with Polo? It reeks of Ralph Lauren's pathetic aspirations to gentility, that's what.
Ouch, I am a semi tenager (20) from the suburbs of Boise, Idaho. And if that weren't bad enough, I like lacoste and polo

It's confirmed then, Boise does indeed have suburbs. But seriously, welcome to the forum, Dill. There's a lot of diverse taste here, and no shame in any of it - well, almost any of it. Nothing wrong with Boise either. I've been meaning to get west of Chicago at some point...

personally, I like the RLPL polos, and they can be obtained at a fairly good price (about $60 on sale) which is about full price for polo stuff. My normal rotation of polos consists of 8 RLPL and 6 Lacoste polos (which I have worn for the last 5-6 years) and I recently upgraded my black label RL polos to purple label. Personally I think the lisle purple label polos are as good as any out there.

Where is a good place to get purple label polo's on sale? I see that you live in orange county, and I go to school about 30 minutes from OC. The only B&M store I have seen RLPL clothing at is in Sun Valley, and the only items on sale were very ugly. (ex. a black buttondown with lizards made out of beads on each shoulder)

You can get purple label stuff on sale at www.polo.com (they only have a few purple label shirts in various sizes left) or at their outlets and the stores carrying purple label (Rodeo Drive, the new South Coast store to open next month, the outlet in Primm, and any of the Polo stores/outlets in Las Vegas) They should have another sale right after xmas on purple label, maybe some pre-xmas sales as well. If you go to polo.com, use the coupon code "WELCOME" for free shipping.
