For the last year I have been buying a bunch of polos, from both companies. I have found the Ralph ones to not only fit better, and have better colors but they also are a higher quality. I also think I have grown to prefer the polo pony to the aligator, only because Lacoste has become soooo popular. For the fall I am going to get a few long sleeved ones to wear for a basic preppy look, and I will only be looking at Polo.

i wish i could vote both but i feel that when wearing lacoste there's a certain air of "trying" while ralph lauren polos are pretty much staples if you are at a country club or anywhere really.

exactly. I see so many people with Lacoste now that can't pull it off, and are trying too hard to be "fashionable." It has become a big thing at my school, which is exactly why it is over for me.

maybe it's just where we live but I find that Lacoste is more of a country club staple. Lacoste isn't popular where I am though I don't think either brand is trying, they have both been around for a long time. I view Lacoste as more of a preppy/80's revival than a new brand that is trying to make it big, because it isn't. I prefer the colors of Lacoste though I've found quality wise that both are similar.

I've always thought of Lacoste as better quality .. maybe I prefer it because I wore Lacoste when I was a kid in the 80's ... I'll have to agree about Lacoste becoming more and more "trendy" ... something rare is that even this country has catched up on the Lacoste craze (and in here, a Lacoste polo costs like 10% of the average -monthly- wage).
I wear some Benetton ones .. great colors, great fit, and will last forever ...

Definitely a toss up. I always feel purely country club in a RL polo, but kind of vintage-chic in a Lacoste.

I live in a small town where people make comments like "Why do you have a alligator on your shirt?" so the whole trying-to-be-stylish thing w/ Lacoste is kind of a non-issue.

It's a toss-up for me, too. Lacoste AND RL for me have same "old staple" feel, as my mum would give me polos from both brands, so I'm used to wearing both - in my city as well, both are worn with regularity, in the country clubs and in daily life...

I love both, and own a lot of both. The qualms I have with Ralph Lauren are that the length of the polo (at least in the newer, tighter fitting ones) is longer in the back than in the front. It annoys me, and one day I was hanging up a polo and thought I'd stumbled across a defect! I don't like the sleeve on the RL as much as I do on the Lacoste.

I like the feel and shape of Lacoste polos much better...but Ralph Lauren polos, as others have said, are a staple. There are a variety of different RL polos and colors...online you can make your own polo, which I think is great since I can pair it with so many different outfits and basically make the polo my own...

I buy Lacoste for the feel, shape, and comfort and Ralph Lauren for the versatility and familiarity.

I prefer the La Coste. For some reason the Ralph Lauren Polo seems to masculine to me.

Interesting observation. From the guy's perspective (or at least mine), RL has the better colors, and the better fit for a male V-shaped torso. RL's also fare better in the laundry and the sun.

That said, Lacoste has a nicer hand, and a better collar.
