I'd happily wear both of those, Sidney, but those are crazy prices. Especially 600 nicker for a polo!!  :o

We're talking luxury brands here, Doc, 90% you pay is the tag. I mean, the polo is made of bloody cotton, right?

Indeed! I don't mind paying that bit extra for quality, but there's a bit extra and there's dressing up as Dick friggin' Turpin!! I suppose it's all relative; if you shop high end, then 600 might even be a bargain?? I'd be looking a suit, and maybe even some shoes for that!!

Two nice polos to considerate for next summer:

First one is from Michael Kors, a usually boring (and expensive) designer:



Next, another -again- expensive number from Todd Snyder (tho' I would have kept the navy colour for the collar):

Another selection from mr Porter, Tod's made in Italy polo in a silk/cotton blend reminiscent of classic Penguin's Earl polo:





Price ruins it all, tho': 430 !

Among the last batch of Gitman Vintage shirts, this Madras number has grabbed my attention, gorgeous pattern  8)



I recommend waiting for the summer sales, tho', as the price tag is now 200 .

Tha's nice GS. I wonder how much of a finger that roll is? I'm guessing, looking at the pictures, it'll be a trim three, but I might be wrong.

I'd bet on 3 fingers too, Steve; enough for me, but I understand that larger gents may differ.
