^The striped crew neck on the bottom is the only one I could see myself in^

I know this will not be to everyone's(or possibly anyone's  ;D) taste, but this caught my eye:


But that chevron is pointing the wrong way!!  :-[ Not for me, Mike, but as long as it floats your boat that's what counts

Not Italian (to my knowledge, I could be wrong) and totally out of my price range (520 !!!), but I like the collar, the 4 buttons placket and the colour combo of this one:

See we discuss collars a lot when it comes to knitted polos and the consensus seems to be to go for long ones. The collar in this pic is about as long as I would like to go, although some would still think this is on the shorter side.
I did a blog post about this once and used a pic of Jimmy in Quadrophenia at the house party at which hes wearing a beige knit polo with what to me had a huuuuuge collar but some people like em that way. Horses for courses!

Truth is I have catholic tastes on that: Big (not huge) Italian style collars work fine for me, they add a nice retro vibe, but I also like the standard Fred Perry-esque smaller collars (they possibly suit better my tiny frame, tbh), as long as they don't fall into micro-collar territory.

Tend tae prefer the collar size oan the bigger size but it's no a deal breaker fur me if the collar is slightly oan the wee size.

Agree wi' Senor Greenstreet aboot the micro collars tho'.

Naebody wants to look like they huv a heid the size ay Gary Caldwell's.

I think sometimes people forget that.  Collars are suppose to suit you, suit your frame/face.  If I see a tiny slim fella with a little head with a huge collar I just think of harry hill. ;D

^ Looks a size (or 2 )too big on him^
But that's probably the cut of it....
