I love Lacoste for the vivid color selection. Ive been dealing with RL polos as the cut is more flattering for my big belly. My fave polos I own are long sleeve and made of cashmere, they've never even been in the same room as my washer or dryer.i inherited a couple of FPs from my brothers in the late seventies revival period. I don’t think I had any after that for over twenty years. I tended to go for Lacostes more than anything which could be had here in America for around $50 on sale.
I remember coming home in summer 2002 and got FPs in white, black and maroon. I still have the white one, the others faded badly and quickly and were soon binned off. I think there’s a broad variance in FP quality - perhaps related to where they’re made - and this includes dyes and longevity, especially darker colours. The same can be said of Lacostes now since they started offshoring their production many years ago.
I’ve since acquired quite a few FPs in short and long sleeves but I’m very careful to wash cold and line dry, not only to stop shrinkage but also to preserve the colours.
