I've had a hard time finding good Polo type shirts. In the early 80s, I had some Izod/Lacoste shirts that were great. They were a heavy cotton, with a bit of a coarse, solid weave. I can't find anything quite like that now.
For years, I've bought Chaps, Izod (which is no longer part of Lacoste), Lacoste and some others. It seems the ones I've had are thin, don't have that heavy weave and don't hold up. They fade quickly, wear out quickly and lots of them have problems with collars. A lot of the collars will "crease" on one side and forever look wrong.
My wife just bought me a Lacoste, which I thought would be like the old ones. Wrong. It faded after three washes and is thinner than the old ones. (My wife wears one of my old ones around the house sometimes, so I have something to compare it to. It's nearly 30 years old!)
Any recommendations for something better?
