    I've been impressed with the fabric of polo shirts made in Italy. The Bobby Jones shirts have excellent material, as well as the house brand shirts at Bullock & Jones. Neither are cheap but do seem to be far superior to Polo and Lacoste shirts.

    I am being told that this Polo Open shirt is the best of best:
    http://www.loropiana.it/ING/collezio...d=maglieria_02

    At a price of $340 I would think this should be up there.

    I got a side deal with a reputable power seller such that I can get this for $90, brand new with tags.

    Good deal?

    I like Loro Piana polos a lot and get them from a local outlet for around the equivalent of that price. I'd say it's a good price for them. Comfortable, well-made and a nice fit IMO.

    LP makes some great polos.

    [​IMG]

    Is that a discoloration / water stain on the lower left of the shirt? Or are my eyes playing tricks on me.

    I think it is just the shadow from side lighting.

    The shirt is flawless according to her description, and if its stained then PayPal will protect me. She is the nicest eBayer I have ever encountered. She cut me an awesome deal on this shirt.
