I know it's not well made or anything, but I really like the stripe combo. Anyone know one that looks like this thats a bit better quality? I know it's not really a big deal anyways, but that AE logo also bothers me a bit.

Banana Republic had one with similar colors but more and slimmer stripes little while back. It's pretty nice; I picked it up for $25.

I'm thinking I'd like fewer wider stripes. I've been big into that sort of polo lately, kinda like the Le Tigre one I posted earlier. I haven't worn nearly any single color polos lately, or thin stripe ones.

I really like that look too - wide stripes that are spaced further apart - especially in this color combo.

Too bad AE insists on putting their logo on everything, because I've seen a few polos, button-up shirts, and wool sweaters I actually would have purchased had it not been for the logo.

I thought of removing it, but since it's embroidered rather than a simple tag it is nearly impossible to remove.

Yeah, I looked at that today, it'd be basically impossible to take out, unless you were a trained tailor...

Some of them have horses. I have about ten PL polos, most of them with logos in the lisle (thin mercenized cotton) I have two of the pique ones as well. My lavender PL lisle polo is one of my favorite.

It is nice, but can't hold a candle to this...








Blows it out of the water. Close to shirt perfection.
