    American Eagle: ASAP, or as soon as you get out of high school at least.

    Lacoste: Why? Decent fit, good quality...

    Just get some Fred Perry or maybe blank H&M polos. J Crew is actually pretty good too.


    I have a couple of regular, small J Crew polos and they are too big for me, and I don't care for the antique vintage slim fit.

    I like the tailored fit J Crew Polos as well. For my torso length the polo is not too long, but for you that might not be the case. I would suggest trying it out, they have a lot of polos there in many different fits, you could probably find something that you like and just wait until it goes on sale online and buy it then

    Yeah, the J.Crew tailored fit ones are pretty good, not perfect, but the only ones I have that fit better are the American Apparel pique polos. Although, those have kind of a huge collar, a very deep four-button placket, and big arm openings so they aren't for everybody. Also, some people complain about AA's construction quality - I haven't had any problems but they do feel a little cheap up close. The J.Crew original fit polos are really loose, though, so I think I'd skip those. I have two I got on sale for $10 each and I really only ever wear them under a sweater.

    Just picked up an RL yesterday, IMO its a wardrobe staple.

    Did you get the "custom fit"?

    The best thing about RL is the wide range of colors available. None of the other brands come close to matching RL in terms of color selection.

    Yeah, I tried on the classic fit but found it too boxy and long so went for the custom.

    I like vintage Lacoste (w/ the blue alligator, I forget which line that is). However, they are long. I just got an Abercrombie muscle-fit polo at a thrift store, and I really like it. The collar holds its shape quite well and its a very heavy-weight shirt. I don't know how much they go for brand new, but it was definitely worth the $3 I paid.


    AF polos retail for 49.50. But if you can wear an adult small, go to abercrombie(the kids store) and buy 2 large polos for essentially the same price. I am very fond of AF polos, they are well constructed for 50$. There are a lot of details I enjoy, the inside of the collar has a thin strip of velour that is slightly more comfortable than the typical RL and Lacoste. I also like the fact as an AF employee you get a 50% discount which can usually be used toward a polo or AF washed oxford which are also very comfortable.

    I really like Lacoste's fit, but am unwilling to pay 70 dollars. If I found one at a thrift store I'd probably pick it up, but I don't think I would ever be able to pay more than 35 dollars for a polo.

    For a good summer time, thin polo Wal-Mart has several cheap polo's I wear around from time to time which are around 8 bucks a piece.
