+1. I'm a medium and have several of the cotton pique and cotton jersey polos. The jersey polos are slimmer/shorter than the pique ones, which are a great fit for me. I'll probably offload my jersey ones (with stripes) on B&S.

Shirts regularly cost $79 but I'm selling each shirt for $39 or get a great deal and pick up both...
