    I am looking to get some polos and wanted to see if you guys have any recommendations on brands/stores to look. I currently have a bunch of plain polos, but I feel its a bit boring wearing jeans/khakis with solid polos. I'm hoping to find something more interesting.

    Thanks for the input!

    I saw a new polo at H&M that looked like a fred perry polo, black with the red and white stitching on the sleeves and collar, looked really good.

    I have a cool Ben Sherman blue argyle polo, same one Get Smart has. But I bought mine first. [​IMG]

    Actually this is a good question, I'd like to see what other people recommend because I'm looking for some as well.

    How much do the AA polos shrink post-wash, no dry? A small fits me perfectly unwashed off the rack.

    I think a lot of the cost for Fred Perry polos is brand pricing. That is, you pay to wear a Fred Perry. However, they are of good quality and they are nice looking. My girlfriend bought me a green Fred Perry polo for christmas and the shade of dark green is spectacular.

    I've found they shrink up quite a bit in the length, very little anywhere else. Same deal with their Ts, so if you have Ts, they shrink like that.

    You can almost get an H&K shirt on sale for that much!

    Not to Hijack too much, but I am planning a trip to the RL store or outlet this weekend to pick up some new custom fits. I was going to go for a white, a blue, and either a light pink or lavender. Between those two, which would you say? I'm comfortable rocking either color, but am just a little unsure, considering I'll likely only get one of the two.

    I very nearly bought the £70 one, probably should have done actually, was a wonderfull all over sketch thing, can't remember the brand but it was on the second or third floor [​IMG] the £110 one was raf simmons. there were some nice fred perry X CDG ones for about £100 aswell.
    sorry i'm fashion ignorant really i just pretend- what is h&k? ( i googled but i guess its not the german weapons manufacturer or the stainless steel cookware brand [​IMG] ) the was that supposed to be irony? if so i apologise for messing up your high fashion joke, if not i apologise for insinuating you thought £100 was not too much to spend on a polo shirt

    It's Hiltich and Key (though I know that's not how you spell it), IIRC. They are an English shirt maker. Or are you guys talking about something else?
