Very slim fitting. Contrast stitching. Long placket for a retro feel. Front pocket which I like. Cotton pique.

Of course the material ain't so hot and the construction is poor, but what do you expect for:

$10 a pop!

I'm Montecristo#4 and I endorse this product.


good call, I just picked up TWO polos for $15 in the boys section. Thanks to the proliferation of fat kids in America, an XL youth size fits me PERFECTLY. The shoulders are just right, body is slim, no logos, simple 2 button design available in about 4 or 5 colors.

Thank God for fat children!

I think I'm actually going to head to Old Navy this weekend just to check these out. Crazy! I have no problem entering Old Navy, but I don't think I've ever made a trip with Old Navy as the actual intended destination.

Belive it or not I have found Ben Sherman (of all brands) to have great fitting polos. Mine fits great and has held up much better then my RL polo (which has had some crinkling in the collar over time).

Not only did I try it on, I bought two of them ($20, nice).

I am a size L in American Apparel for hings like hoodies and tees, M if I want a really tight fit. A size medium at Old Navy in these polos fits me sort of in between an AA large and an AA medium.

The fit is totally different than almost any other Old Navy piece of clothing I tried on (it was my first ever visit to Old Navy, checking out their western shirts that someone on this board pointed out). In everything else at Old Navy a small was large on me. I bought a short sleeved western shirt in S and I'm hoping it shrinks.

I agree, I have quite a few from their "vintage" line from years ago that are still well colored and shaped despite numerous washings.

I bought several polos from Scoop - PDC, Velvetmen, and Joie. The PDC is pique, and the other two are jersey. They're all lightweight, soft, and cut a bit generously, but I haven't worn and washed them enough to evaluate their durability.

My name is westside and I endorse this message.
They're not the best ever but the price is unbeatable, and they are made from mercerized pima cotton. The only downside is that they're a bit too thin, so they're really too airy for anything but spring/summer. Wait till these are on sale for $37.

I'm really fond of my Velvet polo. Its soft, fits well, and has a really nice weight.

Yes they are. Originally they were rather short and meant to be worn out, but then they decided to go 180 degrees the other way.

old navy polos are actually pretty cool. bought a bunch last year for work. however, they don't last too long and the color fades very, very quickly even if you wash in cold water.

now i'm a big fan of uniqlo polos. super well made, inexpensive and the color stays bright.

Can anyone recommend a fit similiar to an Express polo? An Express small fits me real well and is pretty cheap, but I'm really not a big fan of their logo they put on the front. Also, does anyone know how well they last?

Does anyone know how American Apparel polos fit compared to say RL custom fit and Lacoste retro fit? I eventually want to pick up some better quality polos, most likely RL custom but for now, I just want to get a few basic polos for the summer. I was thinking that AA would be perfect because they are cheap and I love the fit of everything else I've tried on from them.

I went today to Old Navy and got several polos from the boy's section - perfect fit. The quality seems standard, but at $7.50 each it's not a bad deal.

The much-maligned Armani Exchange makes some polos that meet the criteria, except for high quality. Currently, several are on sale.

Bought a blue polo with white, blue and green horizontal stripes at Old Navy yesterday off the clearance rack for $3.97.

Looks great and fit perfectly - size L.

Here's a link - not the same color I got. It does seem to be fairly slim fit. I think all of the Old Navy vintage cut is slim fit.
