That pretty much aligned with professional advice. Andrew Weitz, founder of Los Angeles style consultancy the Weitz Effect, considers $100-$295 a reasonable range.

The Wildly Popular Men’s Shirt to Avoid This Summer—and What to Wear Instead

Men seeking a clean, understated look might consider a polo with a twist, said Andrew Weitz, a style consultant in Los Angeles. He often steers clients toward a Johnny-collar polo, notable for its total absence of buttons. “It’s a different take on a regular polo. It’s sexy,” said Mr. Weitz of the style, which can be found in various light, spring-worthy knits.
