does anyone know where one can buy them these days please?

Have bought a couple of these for DD from next. I don't usually go there but was returning something horrible she'd been bought as a gift and swapped it for a polo neck!

Do you mean the clingy thin ones that you can wear underneath other tops (like 70's smocks wink)? If so I bought one recently from H&M.

Or do you mean the chunkier, knitted ones?

Oh really?
Everything usually seems logo'd and embroidered to death usually. I'll ch-ch-ch-ch check it out.

Thin for under a smock, aye.

I have a particularly stunning photo of myself sporting a red shiny polo neck with a red, yellow and black striped tank top over the top and matching hair slide. It's a 1978 classic!

Don't do this to your children!

Accessorised by pudding bowl hairstyle and/or polyester flares and tights that gather somewhere around the knees (until yer mum comes nad hoiks you up in them like a sack of potatoes)

My two bfs and i used to wear them with denim skirts with buttons, denim waistcoats and long thick socks...They look so bad on me, never wear polo necks any more

Gap do them, usually around two for £12. Decent quality, wash well but you may need to size up as the headholes sometimes seem very snug!

asda. Cream, Orange and lime I think.

mothercare have em for younge ones
Joules do fab ones too

I prefer these to rollnecks. They're a skinny fit, so I'd go a size up, but then they last forever. They have some other colours at half price in the sale as well (orange I think and green and maybe some others too)

skibi Mon 15-Dec-08 21:50:31

they have some here for little ones....

UnfortunatelyMe Mon 15-Dec-08 21:52:11

Asda £4

Am I the only grown up who quite likes to wear a polo under a top? blush

MaryMotherOfCheeses Mon 15-Dec-08 23:36:08

Oi! I need to know.

It's my plan for tomorrow sad blush

Am going to go to work looking like a 5 year old.
