Fred Perry vs Lacoste Polo Shirts

Greetings, everyone! :)

I would like to ask your help in picking my next polo shirt purchase. I have decided that I will stick to Fred Perry and Lacoste, so please do not suggest any other brand in this thread. Do not suggest cheaper options which have seemingly same quality as the two. I want some prestige in my clothing as well, but not super expensive like Brioni, Sunspel, or Olebar Brown.

Anyway, could you guys please compare the following model lines in terms of overall quality and durability? Which will still look great after several years and last a longer period of time? You can mention any other information you have regarding the two lines.
- Fred Perry Laurel Wreath (Made in England)
- Lacoste Made in France (Yes, Lacoste are offering French-made polos again)


The two specific polos I am comparing are:

Fred Perry Laurel Wreath Polo Shirt (Black / Champagne)
(Priced at 5698.00 Pesos, at Greenbelt 5 branch only)

vs

Lacoste Slim Fit with Stripes on Sleeves Made in France (White with Navy Stripes) (Priced at 4850.00 Pesos, at any Lacoste branch)

*Just a side note for the Lacoste: It weirdly does not have mother of pearl buttons, just plastic. That is a surprising, considering my Silver Edition Lacostes all have mother of pearl buttons. But the Fred Perry Laurel Wreath also uses plastic buttons, so why not? Haha

*If ever this helps when you will discuss fitting: I am in my early 20's, around 5'7, medium to large athletic build.

Your feedback and shared knowledge would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! :)
