We sold it last year. Did really well too.

What colours do you guys want to see for Polos for next Spring?
A slightly off-white, near cream like this:

Some nice pocket square colours and patterns, but I prefer silk for the texture contrast. Agreed that some of those would make killer ties though!
Our tie supplier had some stocks kicking around, so we picked up what was available. We weren't even looking for these tbh, but the designs were nice and the price/quality are reasonable. So we figured, why not!

The price is insane; CAD 25 for a gorgeous wool pocket square? It’s almost always winter here, so wool is exactly what I need. I’m about to buy 4 of them.

Edit: I picked up 5 pocket squares, because they bundle, apparently. Holy hankies.

I would be all over a burgundy polo in both SS and LS. Heck, I've purchased nearly all the burgundy products they have available 😅
They had a short sleeved polo (close to a burgundy) a couple years ago. They should bring it back.

Bingo. A pale yellow. I'd actually like a yellow in a LS polo and as a dress shirt. I went to Uniqlo for a yellow linen shirt this year.

I'd be in for a mint/sage green possibly too.

And double yes to BD collars on said polos.
I second the pale yellow. 👍🏻

Anyone else notice that some fabrics when viewed in the custom shirt area show a discounted price that isn't reflected in the shopping cart?

The LS polos did terrible for us in terms of sales. That's why they are on such a heavy discount. Basically a loss for us. We have to produce the volume to get the price. Anything less than $30 on them and it's not worth it. I think they are worth more than that, but we need to push the volume, and that didn't happen. To produce elsewhere in lower volume, the price would rise way high and we lose our competitive advantage on a simple product like this. We may try another time, but it won't happen in the near future unfortunately.
That's too bad, I like them, was hoping for BD for next season...

Hmm, do you guys think the 2 orange/brown pocket squares would go well with the green sports coat?

I was thinking it'd provide some contrast.

Any ideas on what trousers to pair this shirt with? It is the slubbiest shirt I've ever seen and I kind of want it.

I concur with whomever posted previously - some of those pocket square fabrics would make nice ties!

That's a bummer. The long sleeve polo was the perfect shirt that I had been looking for at a reasonable price for a long time. I wear the short sleeve polos all the time and was anxiously awaiting them only to find out the cut was more trim. Already needing XXL I wasn't left with any option. If they had been cut more relaxed like the short sleeve polos I would have one in every color. I hope you can try them again in the future because the styling really was perfect.
