    How many do you own? From what brands? How often do you wear them? Who makes the best polo's? And so on...

    Hmm, speaking of Lacoste, what do you think of this Lacoste polo?

    Black and gray? Blegh.

    Solid colours only for the Lacoste, please.

    WTF are you talking about? You're traumatized by A&F? A tad melodramatic, friend.

    And Abercrombie isn't fratty, it's GDI.

    I have to agree, This one is my favorite Lacoste polo: http://www.mensfashionjournal.com/20...ting-look.html

    That one doesn't look bad. I'll consider it.

    I'm honestly looking for a polo in brands such as Lacoste, Ralph Lauren, Burberry, maybe even Gucci or whatever. But I don't really think I would get a Brooks Brothers polo.

    Does anybody else have any choices on a nice polo shirt? Links would be very much appreciated.

    -.- Read the rest of the post.

    I did... But Abercrombie still doesn't have "preppy" or snobbish connotations. The Abercrombie Moose worn past age 17 says "I'm poor; I haven't purchased new polos since High School."

    Back to the original topic, a new company called Southern Marsh is on the scene. I haven't picked up a polo from them yet, but others who have swear by them.

    I only own one Abercrombie polo which I don't wear anymore because it's too large, but I own a couple of button downs with the moose which look good. I don't think they have anything to do with being poor, those shirts cost $70 each which is not far at all off brands like RL and Lacoste.

    Anyways, please stay on topic... this thread is not about Abercrombie lol. I need a nice polo shirt, can anybody suggest one? Like post a link of a nice one to consider. I would appreciate it so much.

    Burberry makes trenches and Gucci makes loafers. Don't buy polos from them.

    Burberry are pretty popular for their polos too, but okay.

    Anywyas, please post a picture of a polo shirt you find nice? From Lacoste or Ralph Lauren at least, no Brooks Brothers or any other unheard of brands please.

    Thanks, why are you looking for those brands? Do you like having a visible logo?

    No, I just want a brand I'm familiar with.

    MensFashionJournal, is this the one you own? Or is it different? If you ordered it online, then post the site you ordered it on. I'm going to consider it, but still want to keep my options open.

    If anybody has a suggestion, please post a link, I would really appreciate it.

    I think its a lighter shade than that (I'm not sure if its that one and it just looks a little different in the picture), No I did not buy it online, I bout it at NYC.

    I live in NYC, but anyways, there's so many different shades that it will be impossible to find the same exact one.

    Anyways, go look at the Lacoste website, suggest one (Post a link). Curious to see what you can find.
