My favorite polo shirt is a no-name cotton pique with large (5") vertical stripes or panels in hunter green, navy, burgundy, and cream, purchased for $2.50 at Goodwill. Â As you can probably infer from this, I'm somewhat skeptical about the concept of "high-end" polo shirts--but I really do like vertical stripes. Â So I went in search of more recently, assuming it would be a simple task akin to finding a Philips screwdriver in lieu of a flat-blade. Â Well, either I was wrong, or I haven't looked in the right place yet, because with very few exceptions all the striped polos I've seen in stores and online are horizontals. Â There must be a conspiracy. This being StyleForum, I have no doubt someone will be along presently to explain just why vertical-stripe polos are trÃ¨s outrÃ© and what this says about our society. Â Â In the meantime, though, can anyone recommend a good source? Â Where are they hiding 'em all?
