Sunspel Polo purchase?

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
I am considering the purchase of the above mentioned Sunspel 007 polo and would like some feedback/advice from those who either own one or have some direct knowledge of it. What do you think of it so far (quality/feel/durability)? I've searched old threads and there really isn't much to be found, at least not enough first hand info to convince me to buy one yet....Thanks for any and all feedback.

Love mine. Fit is great is you're slender/muscular. I had a seam come loose, but overall the fabric is nice.

I had one too (long story involving the neighbors dog)- as said above- good if you are slim.

Note however that the blue one is sold out/back-ordered. At least as of last week it was/had been for some time.

I emailed them last week, and the blue should be back in stock now. To those that have had one: I wear a Large in classic fit RL polos, and an XL in their custom fit, which would you recommend ordering from Sunspel?

^Indeed! It's back in stock.

How tight do you want it? I'm ~41 in US coat size and wore a large.

I take a medium in RL custom fit and it's somewhat loose without being overly baggy. The medium sunspel is about as tight as I can manage.

CG and Leon, many thanks! I was about to order a large, but I am a 44-46 US. I think I will give the XL or maybe event he XXl a try.

All the Sunspel comes up pretty small. I am a 42 chest (UK) and take a L in the Polos and tees and they come up reasonably fitted. Quality is great though.

I might as well get on this how does it fit wagon since I've been considering as well.

Typically I wear 54eu or slim 44R jackets, but buy size Medium J Crew and Lacoste M (which at M, is baggier in the body than I like, although shoulders and chest are fine). I imagine I can't get away with an M in the Sunspel so L sound about right?

Hey Guys....Thanks for the feedback. I e-mailed Sunspel about the fitting of the 007 polos and was told the XXL fits a 46" chest. I'm in that 48-49 range and probably won't take a chance given the cost of having to ship it back to England. Anway, thanks again....

So I received my Sunspel polo yesterday. I must say it is easily the most comfortable polo I have ever worn. My experience is limited to Lacoste, Polo, RLPL, RLBL, Banana,Varvatos, and a few other randoms. Now that I have tested them, I think I am going to order 2 more colors.

I enjoy mine. They're small, so all things being equal, go up a size. The cloth is very open-weave, so the shirts are very cool-wearing. Probably not as durable as pique Polo or Lacoste

Do you recommend sizing up on the Sunspel Riviera? I take a M in RL custom too.

I found that they run pretty true to size but also shrink if you put them in the dryer at all, so I sized up 1 size and have had no issues (I'm a large in RL polo's and went with a XL for Sunspel). In fact, it's one of my favorite shirts for summer.

Neo: when you say you wear a large in rl polo, do you mean custom fit? The measurements listed on their site say sunspel polos are 3-4 inches more in the chest than custom fit...
