Lacoste Polos -- Where is the best place to buy? - Page 2

post #16 of 31
There is really no comparison between the fabric, fit, and button quality of my French shirt v. the Peruvian ones which I now never wear.

Check the racks of your local Bloomies or Nordstrom when they put stuff on clearance. I've gotten shirts for around $30 each in a decent range of colors w/ a clearance and coupon combo.

Does anyone have any experience buying Lacoste from http://www.drjays.com/shop/G1-V4832-...1/lacoste.html ? Are these legitimate?

maybe not the cheapest, but cheap and reliable... Bloomingdales often does a a men's sale where Lacoste are 20% off. Couple that with the additional 20% off of a $100 or more purchase coupon and you start to bring the price per unit down very quickly. I've done this for basics and Lacoste for a few years.

Lacoste began selling on their website recently, well maybe not that recently but the last time I went to their website about 3 months ago they didn't have a store. http://shopapparel.lacoste.com/index...=bn_lsa_launch

Dept. stores always run the best sales unless you catch the website when it first post sales. Stores also run twice a year sales ( maybe even more )

I personally like the pima cotton polo's from Lacoste with the smaller gator and three buttons. I think they lay better with the tail.

I think Lacoste shirts are some of the most high maintenance shirts made. If you dry them, they will easily shrink down two sizes.

Amen to that.

Never put them in the dryer. I put mine on wooden hangers and air dry them.

FYI, Macy's is having the Friends and Family sale now. It includes Lacoste at 20% off. Google for a coupon. Also free shipping over $100.

In Vaughan (just north of Toronto), there's a Lacoste outlet at Vaughan Mills. I know that the polos were $50 something during the winter months, but they're back up to $66. Not the best deal around, but it sure beats paying regular price at one of their boutiques.

They also have sales in addition to their outlet pricing, but it's typically a discount off the original price, which usually translates to an extra 10-15% off the "outlet" pricing. Sometimes, you can get lucky--just before Christmas, I picked up a button up that was 60% off, and I picked up a sweater for $45 that retailed for $175.

Their polo stock is pretty much whatever was out last season, but they don't really have stock of common solids (i.e. white, navy)--I don't keep up with Lacoste's lines, so for all I know, maybe that colour wasn't being made that season. Nevertheless, they have a pretty decent size and colour range.

I enjoy the store more for the one-off pieces they get in occasionally. A lot of the stuff they get in can be in huge sizes or really gaudy colours/patterns, but every now and them you can find a gem.

I think my Romanian Lacoste polo isn't too bad.


Romanian? I haven't come across a croc shirt from Romania ever. Is it new?

Well, it is Gentian Purple and I bought it at a Lacoste Boutique here in Montreal.

Purchased it in early March.
