Let's beat this commercialized system

I need cheap, brand-name polos. Used to use polo-shirts.us but their site is down. I'm fine with buying a lot of 10 shirts as long as its under $200... Where do I find such deals now that my slightly seedy chinese company is no longer in business?

I dress business-casual for work, so a regular polo is my usual fare. I usually wear Ralph Lauren brand shirts. Not because I'm a douche, but because their shirts are high quality.

I'm fine with any name-brand that is known for lasting a while.

I do have the typical problem of wide shoulders, narrow waist. I don't have much of a barrel chest though, so I can normally get away with buying mediums and letting the shoulders stretch without looking like I spend 10 minutes forcing myself into a shirt.

Anyone know of any websites where I can buy multiple single color polos at discounted rates?

Thanks!

T-Shirt Wholesaler. I buy tshirts through them 3 or 4 at a time (they sell retail and wholesale). Generally takes about a week from time of order.

@doctor_negative That looks promising, thanks! - do you know how any of those brands fit? I tend to wear the more athletic cuts --- ralph lauren calls it the "classic fit" (I guess opposed to the golf shirt type cuts)

nokry56: AFAIK Ralph Lauren has two fits, a slim fit and a classic. The slim is, well, basically a size smaller because it presumes a smaller waist.

Sorry, I just buy t-shirts.

Have you looked at Land's End. They sometimes have deals. Regularly, if you buy 3 then the price is reduced.

Yeah ... um ... Ralph Lauren Polo's retail for $50+ right?

And you want them for $20 (and have been buying them for $20)?

You have not been buying Ralph Lauren Polo's ... you have been buying counterfeits.

This makes Baby Jesus cry! Not cool during Easter.

But the answer to your question is Amazon and eBay.

And your old site is probably now down because they were Ripping Off Ralph Lauren which is BAD!

I know this is probably not the brand you're looking for, but supposedly Old Navy has $5 polos today only. Again, may not make the "known to last a while" requirement, but just thought I'd mention it anyway.

n'thing what zaxour said. Land's End makes good quality polos, and regularly puts them on sale. That's what I'm wearing in my profile pic.

Try Eddie Bauer, too.
