Where to buy polo shirts?

Post by Rayandron » Wed Feb 26, 2014 1:34 pm

Any Boglehead out there have a recommendation they can share for purchasing new polo shirts (i.e. polo style, not Polo the brand; there is no way I'm going to spend the $85/shirt that Ralph Lauren seems to want for them). I'm looking for basic solid color or striped polos, preferably without huge brand logos on the chest. The GAP brand polos are similar to what I have in mind, but they're still $30/shirt.

Thanks!

Uniqlo is probably in your price range.

Wait for Gap polos to go on sale. Old Navy polos are similar, cheaper options.

Lands End makes nice, durable polos.
Don't assume I know what I'm talking about.

Not the fanciest website but I like this place ...

They often have Izods for about $15 or so.

I buy Jos. A. Bank traveller polo shirts (short and long sleeve) when they are on sale at 50% or more off.
They last for many years, are easy to care for by hanging them up when they come out of the dryer, and do not have logos.
Plus they have different fits (slim, regular, tall). I wear slim fit but they are long enough to stay tucked in.

If you're in the Midwest, wait for a Menard's sale. It seems weird to buy clothing at a hardware store, but I'm slowly converting my business casual wardrobe over to $5 after rebate dress pants and polos.

If you want to save money, go to Walmart. If you want a Polo shirt, find an outlet store and buy when they are on sale.

I like Lands End--usually look at the catalog to judge color then order online. Can go to Sears for touch and feel but they are often not too well stocked. Good quality. The polo shirts at Kohl's look just as good and typically cost 2/3 as much.

I buy my short sleeve collared shirts (polo or golf style or whatever they're called) at Kohls. It's also where I buy most of my "work" clothes. I mostly work in an office and don't see clients, so it works. If I worked in sales or something more customer-facing, I might need to spend more money.

JC Penney has nice polo shirts, but the price goes up and down so you might want to watch for sales.

Lands End makes very nice shirts, but they are rarely available at any discount. Likewise LL Bean.

There are online providers such as blankshirts.com which provide basic polo style shirts from several manufacturers at very good prices.

I, too, am put off by brand name polo shirt prices. But I have to say this is a 'you get what you pay for' situation, IMO. I have several Polo and Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece shirts that are going on 10 - 15 years and still look great. Its not like these shirts are closet queens either - they are go to shirts for me. You have to look past procurement costs to life cycle costs - an $85 Polo or Golden Fleece over 10 - 15 years is $5.66 to $8.5 per year.

Make mine a 3rd vote for Target. The Merona 100% cotton Ultimate Polo is a great deal. I also like the way it fits my tall (6'3") athletic frame without being billow-y or too short in the trunk, in a size M. Just picked up a few more last weekend at 2 for $25. I only wish they had a few more styles, as I've bought their entire line for this season.

I figure most clothing is cheaply made today (I had some more expensive Ralph Lauren Polos that faded after ~10 washes), so I might as well think disposable. At $12 a shirt, if I get a few months of wear out of it, I'm happy.

Land's End shirts are very good quality. I've been using them for years. Try them.

Any outlet centers near where you live? There can be some good bargains there as well.

I'm going to pick some up, but am wondering if I should go for M or L after reading your post. I'm 6'1" with athletic frame. I almost always get large polos because mediums tend to be too small around my chest and shoulders. Are you typically a medium or do the merinos run a bit bigger?

I wear polo shirts EVERY day.
I have some from Old Navy that are 10 years old that my wife purchased for $3.99+tax.
Me happy.

The best ones however, are those that have a corporate logo (preferably from a defunct company) which means that I got the shirt for FREE.

I can't help you with the Merona, but for the Mossimo, I buy the Large for 6'0" and a 46" chest. I was at the XL a couple months back, but that likely was more about my waist than my chest back then (though my chest was 48" then).

I've tried many polo (golf) shirts through the years, and have never been as happy as I am with two I bought within the last year from LLBean.

http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/63158?fe ... ded-sleeve

Just wore one today! 8-)

The price is right, the quality and fit are good, and the customer service is great. I too have an LLBean credit card, which I only use for purchases from LLBean. It makes for easy purchases and returns.

I buy my polo shirts at the following places:

TJ Maxx/ Marshall's - occasionally have the Polo brands in the mid $20s.
Burke's Outlet / Beall's Outlet - many polo style shirts are $5-15 - located in Southern-SW states
Costco / Sam's Club

I have spent no more than $12 in the past 15 years for a polo shirt and have a closet of Cutter & Buck, Ashworth, Nike Golf, Greg Norman, etc.

If you want cheap, you can find lower quality brands for #3-5.

As a diehard, online shopper, I like L.L. Bean polos. Good quality and reasonably priced. The huge plus is that they offer FREE SHIPPING on everything all the time. To make it even more convenient, if you have their L.L.Bean credit card, then returns can also be shipped for free. Their return policy is about as liberal as can be. When you add it all up, it makes for worry-free online shopping for polo shirts (or anything else.) They do have brick-and-mortar locations as well, so if you happen to live within driving distance (as I do) you can even buy online & return to store if you dont have their credit card for free returns. However, I do have the credit card because it gives me 3% on Bean purchases. Good luck!

Best deal aggregates all the best sales
Ralph Lauren polos are $59 -- other ones go down to single digits
plus Jos A Banks usually has a pseudo 3 for 1 sale.

Most of my work wardrobe consists of non-pique solid and striped polos from Banana Republic. I hate pique polos and the ones that did find their way into my closet have been donated with very little wear.

I buy mine at JCPenney, from the St. John's Bay house line. I have a few long-sleeved polos which have shrunk over a long period of years, but the short-sleeved ones have lasted me a long time.

And since you expect polos to be wearable for a long time, you may be able to buy them out of season; long sleeves in March and short sleeves in October at any store may be half price.

This is a good point. I wear short-sleeve banded sleeve pique polo shirts almost every day. I am not hard on clothes. I have bought polo shirts from Lands End, then LL Bean, over the past decade. I typically have about six in rotation for the office. I find that after a couple of years they begin to develop holes at the bottom of the placket, or fray around the sleeve band. Those become my weekend shirts, and I buy new ones for the office.

I realize that I could return the LL Bean ones, but after a couple years of regular wear that feels like abuse of their return policy.

Do others have experience with long-lasting yet moderate-priced polo shirts? Or must I bite the bullet and try a Polo polo?

New? Why? Spend an hour at two thrift shops and you can buy 5-6 polo type shirts that fit, are in good shape (no holes, stains, etc) for about $1.99 each. This is a no brainer. Many clothes in thrift shops have barely been worn, partially because Americans continue to grow in girth so their clothes don't fit.

Since no one has mentioned it, find a brand that fits you, then buy those.

I like Uniqlo. They are a slightly slimmer fit than American brands. Importantly, they fit me well They go for 15 dollars a piece. And they have no brand logo whatsoever.

I prefer Uniqlo polos, they have a great modern trim fit and I think are under $30. $30 is about as low as you'll find though for something you'd want to be seen in.

Second this. Husband has many brands and these have held up the best. No fading or shrinkage washed and dried (on low) repeatedly. Take them out soon as they dry and no ironing needed. Also no logo.

I have a bunch of experience with this (maybe too much).

LL Bean until three years ago had the best polo shirts, hands down. They fit great, fair price, lots of colors. If you didn't put them in the dryer they would last forever. Then they fixed what wasn't broken, and treated the fabric so they are "no-iron". Now they are like wearing a PLASTIC BAG. They do not breathe at all. I had several of these "new shirts" for two years, washing and washing them hoping that the treatment would wear off. It does not. I'd never ever returned anything to Bean in my life, but finally gave up, declared those shirts unwearable, and asked for a refund.

In the past few years, LL Bean has started going down the same path as Lands End. Some of you remember when Lands End made great clothes. They they got bought out by Sears, and the quality collapsed. For reasons I cannot fathom, LL Bean is now making stuff cheap -- not cheaper, CHEAP. A great deal of their clothes are now made in countries you've never heard of, with weird fabric selections and odd sizing. It is NOT the LL Bean you know and love from 20 years ago! The only things worth buying anymore are the Bean boots and boat bags, both of which are still hand made in Maine. Their saving grace is unparalleled customer service.

I've tried the others for polo shirts: Lands End last about a year, then the fabric gets "scratchy". They are also snug in the shoulders. They are cheap in price, and ultimately feel cheap when worn.

Orvis is another company that is imploding -- they used to make good quality outdoor wear and are following everyone else into the rabbit hole. Their polo shirts are *very heavy* in weight -- too heavy for an office, and are also absolutely HUGE in size. Just ridiculous looking.

I ultimately settled on paying twice Bean's price for polos from Brooks' Brothers, with a silly little logo on them (grrr). But they fit well, come in dozens of colors, and seem very high quality. Made in China (sigh).

All the other shirts I've tried either were too small or big, had terrible quality, or came in only a handful of colors.

I'm hoping LL Bean comes to their senses and returns to making high quality traditional clothing. At the moment, the company seems to be on a path towards failure. I don't know who in charge there is making decisions, but many long time loyal customers are terribly disappointed. (When they came up with a "Signature" line of clothing with pretty models wearing ridiculous overpriced clothes in fancy locations, it was a bad sign.)

Best thing I learned with polo shirts is do not dry them in the dryer. If you can, hang them to dry. To get the wrinkles out, them put them back in the dryer with a slightly wet towel on "air dry" (no heat!). Then hang them up damp. Most polo shirts will shrink in length (sometimes a lot) if you dry them in the machine often.

American Eagle Outfitters.

They almost always have some discount going on and their Polo shirts run anything from $15 to about $25.
