I posted about this Uniqlo poly-cotton blend polo a few weeks ago. Uniqlo just dropped this similar 100% cotton model. This one doesn’t have a pocket and has an applied placket, but it does have the same spread collar. I bought the poly blend one in navy, but didn’t like the color. I ordered the poly-cotton and 100% cotton in white yesterday. I’ll see which one I like the most. Still considering the Kent Wang though.
I’ve been eyeing the Kent Wang polo shirt for years. I think they’re a great deal at $65 considering PRL's go for $85. The Kent Want shirt has a lovely spread collar that is constructed like a woven shirt i.e. with two layers of fabric and a collar band. The mother of pearl buttons and heavy pique fabric scream quality. I was thinking of picking up a few this summer, but here comes Uniqlo. The Uniqlo shirts are a light weight cotton/poly blend, but they has a similar three button placket and cutaway, woven shirt collar as the Kent Wangs. They are no where near the KW quality, but at $20 I think it's worth a shot. Will cop.
