    I'm working on developing a young, hip, brand of sportsapparel and I'm considering different cuts and materials for my first sample. With the classic polo shirt as the backbone of the line, golf andtennis will be the initial focus. I would like the line to have a slim, athletic cutsimilar to the customfit from Ralph Lauren Polo with a touch of the European high fashion flare and style in the vein of Raf Simmons or J. Lindeberg.

    What brand of polo shirts do you guys prefer and why? Ralph Lauren Polo? Lacoste? Burberry?
    J. Lindeberg? Etc. Thanks for theinput. Niketalk is a breeding ground for entreprenuership and I hope to follow in some of the more sucessful NTers footsteps.

    Because it's a question about each person's preference/favorite, not what NT considers the best.

    In the Ralph Lauren shirts, do you guys prefer the mercerized cotton (softer) or the cotton mesh (original)?
