I was wondering, what do you think are the most popular colors for men's polo shirts?

From the polo shirts that I typically buy, based on the number of Amazon reviews, it seems the most popular colors, translating the fancy color names into more typical color names, are red and navy. I wonder if that applies universally or just to IZOD. Black and white I am pretty sure are up there too.

I have some nice mesh PGA tour polos since it's always 77 or more in the office. I think I've got red, blue, and black. I need to pick up some more.

I still to ralph lauren polos and most all of mine are striped with an off white and some other color. Think I currently have a grey/blue, a blue, a green, and a red. They're all fairly muted, not ultra-bright.

Color is for happy people.

I disagree vehemently with that line.
I am not particularly happy, mostly I am a grouch, and I quite dislike white, black, and grey shirts or cars or etc.

I wear greens, blues, reds, and yellows the most, wish I found some good bright oranges that didn't fade.

You're simply masking your unhappiness by wearing colors. You're projecting a version of yourself that isn't real.

Land's End, the smooth finish pure cotton not mesh and never polyester.

I have no idea what's popular but for Fall - Spring I'll wear mostly navy, dark purple, dark green though I also have dark brown and black. For summer I mostly wear pale blue, pale green though I also have lavender. I'm a pinkskin (Caucasian) and never get enough sun to tan.

Those look nice, I'll have to get one to see how they compare with Land's End.

If you do at least in the large sizes they seem to come out larger than you think. I do like pockets for my reading glasses. ao0 that's a must. Also do you have a link to your lands end polos or the name?

The Supima varieties, they have them with and without pockets, and they have long sleeves for Fall - Spring. If you sign up for their emails, they have 30% off list price deals roughly once a week. Once in a blue moon they'll have 40-50% off list. You'll need to buy 2 shirts to get free shipping.

Note that while in the past polyester was the sign of a cheap polo shirt, this stigma is actually changing with performance polos with moisture-wicking fabric. The IZOD Advantage Polo is actually a hybrid piqué/performance polo, with the moisture-wicking and sun protection properties of a performance polo but with the traditional look of a piqué polo. Plus, polyester is less prone to shrinkage and wrinkles.

Still, IZOD does offer a 100% cotton interlock polo in their Spring collections (I have one in Fairy Tale from the Spring 2018 collection). If you like interlock, here is an option you can't go wrong with:

I love polyester polo shirts. No wrinkles and cool in the summer. Black and brown are my favorite colors.

I dunno man, I have put much reflection into it, and I simply like bright colors. I hate conformity more than anything else, and wearing black and all dark colors to me would be a way of conforming.
