Great recommendations in the comments guys. Naadam Cashmere polo, Merino Wool Polos, RL, Spier Mackay, Ledbury, Asket… Might have to start working on a part 2!
I don’t know how you can talk about the best polo shirts without talking about Ralph Lauren pima soft touch and every single Burberry polo.
Spoke heavyweight as you mentioned is too thic for the summer. Thats why Lacoste make theirs so thin. And it is a mistake to indicate or even say, that the thinner the material the worse the quality. Nothing could be further from the truth. The color retention is by far one of the most important features of a superior quality fabric.
And you like to show your muscles 🙂
He: showing polos in price range starting from 30$
Me: See polos on the market with no difference in quallity from 3$ each
Ok, I understand that some higher priced units will have better quallity and look but personally i wont be bothered by buying every single day new polo for 3$ instead of fancy expensive piece of material which needs washer
If you ask, yes i change my underwear every single day to brand new one cause my progressive laziness.
Moncler polo 🤩
IMO Lacoste shirts fit better if you have a slim body
It's a crime that you didn't even include Fred Perry.
You should cover polos and popping the collar too 😎😎
Do you wash or dry clean?
As for Fit and Quality, nothing can beat LACOSTE. I have one in Navy Slim Fit – LOVE it! I want to get another pair in this Khaki Green. It just seems like the Alligator Logo is a retro trend compared to Ralph Lauren's Polo Horse which is classic. Nonetheless, I will still rock Lacoste regardless. I like the color of your Lacoste Polo.
Pima cotton is the best.
Man Ralph lauren is the polo to go!!!!
How about spier and McKay?
I’m a Hugo boss fan. Love there polos. pricy but great quality.
Gotta say, I have the green uniqlo polo, and it's very comfortable down here in Singapore 🤔👀😅
lacoste is way overpriced. Everything is like $50 to $150 more than It should be way too expensive and they never have clearance sales. Its almost impossible to get anything below $50
franklin saint inspired me to get lacoste polos
cheap or expensive doesn't matter they're all UGLY !
No Fred Perry polo?
Polo Ralph Lauren hands-down the best polo you can buy 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
I felt in love with those non mark Polos
Hello, I m finding it hard to find a polo shirt that would fit me in length. I'm 178 cm, not so thin guy. I be tried Lacoste and Ralph Lauren classic and custom/ regular fit and sent back all polos I've bought. Whenever I buy slimmer fits to fit me in length more I'm ending up with tight upper body, going vice versa I have a hem below my crotch. Would you be able to recommend some quality brands that offer polos better suited for shorter men? Preferably available in Europe
ministry of supply was my favorite the fabric was incredible I bought two got one on discount for $35 on black Friday and bought the optic white for $70 well worth the money. So classy
All of these are extremely boring. Also, who wants full weight cotton piquet polos anymore?
take a look at Ted Baker. i love mine. very soft.
Hi, the blue Lacoste you’re wearing in this video is a slim fit ?
So you just pretend that there is no brand exist called "polo ralph lauren".
i bought some RL custom slim fit polos, but was shocked at how quickly they developed pilling in the armpit area within a month.
What about Pierre Cardin?
Fred Perry. But I guess Fred Perry is too much „streetwear“ for the Gentlemen Gazette .. And the Sunspel Riviera is one of the best Polo Shirts you can buy.
I swear by Icebreaker's Sphere Polo. Merino is just too good
Collar & Co.?
You've just earned yourself a new subscriber my friend!
I'm definitely leaning toward Lacoste because they fit me quite well. None of the big logos or other nonsense that just does not suit my aesthetic, and clearly your style is quite similar.
My question is this: What colours are best to start your collection with? I've lost a tonne of weight over the past few years and I'm keen to update my wardrobe with some versatile items. Polo shirts being chief among them.
How are you 6’4 190 wearing a small?? Doesn’t even make sense
Fred perry polo has the best fit for a slim built
To be very honest I just buy Lacoste polos because of dat 🐊 logoo.It just gets me everytime:)
RL was left out on purpose, I assume???
To make them last longer air dry them and don't use the dryer
I will only buy polos with collar stays and I replace the plastic pieces with Würkin Stiffs magnetic collar stays that make those collars always pop.
Bobby Jones,the ones made in Italy,not china.
