Wardrobe Staples...

For as long as I can remember, I have worn polo shirts. When I say "polo shirt", I'm not necessarily talking about shirts with a polo player on it. I'm talking about the style of shirt. When I was young, my parents would buy me a couple nice shirts to wear for church or for class pictures. At that time, Izod (the one with the alligator) was the major player. I can also remember having a shirt with a little penguin on it. I'm not sure what brand that was. I never had one with a polo player. There was also the JC Penney's version that I believe had a fox as its mascot. Even worse was the Sears version that had a little dragon. If you got caught wearing one of those in junior high you were likely to hear chants of "gayrod!".

Currently I buy my polo shirts from L.L. Bean (they have no logo). I have them in white, yellow, navy, green, and teal. They are comfortable and a touch classier than a t-shirt. Before you ask, no, I don't wear them with the collar up.

I dress my boys the same way and my husband tends to wear them a lot also. It's good to know my kids won't hate me when they are in their 30's for the way I am dressing them today...that is if they turn out as sweet as you.

Any of those polo shirts come in velour?

I am impressed that you buy American Chris. I guess you really don't want the terrorist to win. Just to be safe, you might want to buy a fully loaded hummer or better yet, an Abrams.

Up or down. Down or up. For the first 30 years of my life I wore the collar down. Now I wear it up.
I shall review in a decade or so...
