If you’re on a budget, go for basic gear, like the Carefree Double L Polo shirt from L. L. Bean. The no-nonsense pique knit cotton shirt has banded sleeves, comes in 11 colors, and costs $22.50. Large orders are discounted—for instance, $750 worth of the same item carries a 10 percent discount, and for additional fees, shirts can be branded with a company logo.
For a little more money, try this jazzy striped number from J. Crew, which sports a chest pocket. Made of a flat-laying jersey knit, this one has side vents and costs $38.
Brooks Brothers is a classic choice for apparel suitable for hitting the links. The Country Club Lisle striped shirt comes in four colors and costs $89.50. And the retailer also offers embroidery and logo services.
