Who makes slim fit polo shirts? - Page 3

post #31 of 53
I have 4 RL slim fit polos. 2 Purple label and 2 Normal. Fit nice on the chest but they are way too large in the abdomen area and have tight sleeves. I easily took out 4" from the waist and they are still too loose.

John Smedley's Milo short sleeved polos are my favorite and the only polo shirts I'll wear anymore.

MTM polo shirts from the tailor store? http://www.tailorstore.co.uk/tailor-...o-pique-shirts Never ordered from them, but MTM polos sounds like the solution if your really picky about fit.

I am going to say Lacoste; they have a great variety of fits besides the standard original fit. You also have Retro, Fitted and Ultra-slim. Retro is a close fit, a bit more sportswear look. Fitted is tailored and modern. Ultraslim is fitted, trendy and timeless. If you want a different, somewhat stretchy fabric look for the Silver/Gray Crocodile those are the sort of "flagship" polo’s from the "Club" line. In addition (if you go to a flagship store at least), they have an insane amount of color choices and designs too choose from. If you want something so slim that people can see your abs right through it and you want the blood flow in your arms to be cut off get Lyle & Scott Vintage polo’s. I have one and I love the design but I never wear it because it is inappropriately tight.

Did the Tailorstore polos just go way up in price? I remember them being $29 and now they're at least $45.

Posts like these make me sad because I think "Oh I'll google those to have a look," then I see the price tag and have no inclination to pay that much for a polo.

Brooks Brothers has a deal going on for Slim Fit polo's at the moment. 3 for $129 (regularly $64.50 ea.). I picked up 6 solid slim fits for ~ $37 ea. (Promotional discount + Corporate discount).

My local Club Monaco has slim-fit polos on sale in various colors for $29.99 CAD (+20% student discount, if you look young enough and have an old student ID).

I'm a 36R and the XS almost emphasized my skinniness TOO much.

If you're looking for slim I'm not sure you can do much better than Kent Wang. I am wearing one as I type this. They fit perfectly and the spread collar makes you look a little more formal than the dude sitting next to you in a cliche Ralph Lauren polo. I will warn sizing up in these is all but a must.

Kent is also a SF member so feel free to drop him a line if you have questions. No striped collars but these are great staple shirts and at $65 a pop you can afford to get every color and never worry about another polo again.

I inadvertently discovered that boys' RL polos fit me better than the adult variety. A small custom fit was decent around the chest, but left 3-4 inches too much at the bottom. I tried on a boys' 12-14 in a thrift store, and found it was marginally more snug than an adult S in the chest, and the bottom actually looks good untucked. YMMV.

I agree, give LE a look. They call it "tailored" fit, but I don't recall seeing them for $8, usually more like $30-$40. If you don't like it, return it, they are among the easiest to deal with re: returns. They are mostly into solids, however.

As a few have mentioned, John Smedley are worth looking at depending on your budget. I grew up not too far from the factory so always had them on the cheap and last week got half a dozen at £30-40 each for this summer.

Sea Island cotton or Merino jersey. They are now offering slimmer fits.

If you look after them they last for years, very well put together and a lot of design variations...

i1m very sorry if I have misunderstood, but wouldn't a slim fit polo be smaller in the waist compared to the chest? After contacting Kent Wang, I understood that the chest and waist has the same width. Since I have no waistline at all and use alot of mye time in the gym, I need a polo which have a drop from chest to waist. LE, Kent Wang, J. Crew , etc. doesn't seem to offer this, and I feel TailorStore will be to much hit and miss with the fabric.
