Yes, I know. I have an incredible amount of Polo. However, it's usually the only quality brand I find at the thrifts. I took a weekend trip to visit friends and family, and of course I hit up all the thrift shops at my destination. After visiting four thrift shops, I found over fifty pieces by Polo and only eight by Brooks Brothers. I bought almost twenty items between the two. Truly everything else was of poor quality.
Good - essentially neutral wardrobe staples.
Better - a Brooks Brothers polo and three American-made Ralph polos.
Even better - two Easter-minded polos and pima cotton in the center.
Best - three long-sleeve polos and a cotton crewneck sweater in the center.
Best...est? - a cotton-linen vest, Black Watch button-down, and lambswool sweater
Look longingly. Search steadfastly.
