are there any that stand out from the rest?

or are they all basically the same quality and fit as a £10 H&M polo?

I have a lyle and scott polo-the cut is really good and the quality is top notch aswell-definately better than an H&M one. Shame that all the chavs and "im so cool, look at my little golden eagle on my polo shirt" kids wear them out, but i reckon if you get it in a grey or navy blue, you dont look so much fo a twat.

Loads of people wear Fred perry polos, again quality is good, but i think the cuts always a bit baggy, so would probably size down.

Sunspell made the one Daniel craig wore in the james bond film, and the cotton usesd felt really really nice, and well made. Didnt try it on though, but the cut looks good on asos.

Sunspel is good quality and a nice alternative. Do prefer the fit of Ralph Lauren tho

I only wish ralph lauren wouldn't make their polos so long with that fish tail thing or whatever they call it.

FWIW i'm a fred perry fan boy, especially the japanese ones

They've got a new line out, charring something, smaller collars and slimmer fit, selfridges have them

Anyone know a good eBayer for US Kids Ralph Lauren?

And I think the solid black H&M polos are a quality fit for the money £6 each or something. The lighter ones mostly look shit as the neck / button area stands out as being cheap but on the black one it isnt noticeable.

Looking for a decent three button navy polo. Any ideas? Not RL. Something like all saints, but not all saints.

I want some long sleeved polos. Good quality, nice materials and a good fit seem really hard to find at acceptable prices.

One thing I often find is they fit very loose, especially in comparison to short sleeved polos. Anyone got any recs?

Tried Sunspel? Can't comment on long sleeve ones but nicest polo I've owned by far
