    HBO (at least I think it was HBO) reran "˜Two Weeks Notice' yesterday and there is a scene when Hugh Grant walks into Sandra Bullock's office after a round of Tennis, and he is wearing a white Lacoste polo with a black collar, and 3 decorative parallel black vertical stripes running from the end of the placket to the bottom of the shirt, the center stripe is quite thick while the other two flaking it are quite thin.

    Does anyone know if Lacoste still makes this polo? Or something similar?

    Jon.

    I've never seen that particular shirt, but since you're in Boca, you should stop by the Lacoste store at Town Center and ask. If it's an older shirt, you could also try the Lacoste outlet at Sawgrass Mills.

    Well, the Lacoste store in Town Center does not carry it, nor does the newly opened (ok, newly moved) Lacoste store in Palm Beach.

    Huh, I did not know Lacoste had an outlet in Sawgrass Mills, how much is a typical polo shirt? Do they cost less than in the retail stores?

    Is a salesperson named Chantal (nicknamed Chloe) still working at the West Palm Beach Lacoste?

    The prices on the polos are cheaper down there than at the Lacoste stores or at department stores. If I recall, the typical polo was $49 (if I recall correctly, these were the "designed in France, made in Peru" shirts). Non-standard colors and patterns could be had for even less. Also worth mentioning: when I was at Saks at the Gardens mall in PBG, they had a few shirts in non-standard colors (meaning grey, pale yellow, etc.) on sale as part of the finale sale. Saks on Worth Ave. and at Town Center probably also have them if their sales are still on.

    As for Sawgrass Mills, I suggest you check out their site. I was able to find some very nice things last time I went there. Among the higher-end outlets, they have: Ike Behar, Off-5th, Last Call, Lacoste, Hugo Boss, Cole Haan, Johnston & Murphy, Joseph Abboud, Polo (I have seen RLPL there before), not to mention a bunch of smaller stores that carry high-end Italian stuff (they also carry a lot of Italian brands you'd be a lot more likely to find on eBay than in Milan, but you have to look for the good stuff). I have to make a trip down there before I leave FL.
