'Slim Fit' from Polo

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I was in RL recently, I no longer work there but I still stop in from time to time. They received a 'slim fit' Polo cut that I'm pretty happy with. It alleviates the wonky shoulder commonly found on the Polo 1 and 2 cuts.

Take a look:

I know this will be impossible for style forum to ignore, but the shirt/tie/pants are paired with the winter jacket I was wearing that day, so disregard them.

On the inside-the-pocket tag, what is the given name of the jacket? The Bradford is the only slim fit Polo jacket I have any experience with. I was in the Highland Park Dallas store last week and didn't see anything like this jacket. Not that I can afford PRL jackets unless they're on sale anyway.

Also, it looks damn good. Slim, without the huge shoulders of the RLBL.

The jacket does look good. I have a few different Polo I and II jackets and suits and most do have shoulders like the jacket pictured. What exactly do you mean by wonky shoulders?

It's called Polo Custom on the inside tag, they had about 3 styles with this cut. Other random thoughts; I wish they would finally ditch the pocket flaps, but the patch pockets are cool.

Polo I & II shoulders are good, but in anything other than worsteds they end up doing something odd. I love the jackets but it's a nit pick of mind on my tweeds and heavy linens from yesteryear.

Brian..............do you know if these come as part of a suit configuration are they indeed stand-alone for sport coats?

They told me at the store that they were converting the suits to the cut. I'm happy about that.

not sold on the patch pockets but otherwise looks like a solid fit for you.


btw, how come you don't post on the WAYW anymore? (or did you just answer that in the OP about not working at Polo anymore?)

That fit looks great.
I searched the RL Web site but didn't find a match.

Is this an in-store only item?

The sleeves are that slim off the rack? I'm glad I only do cardio.

Untouched by an alterations tailor. Coburn thanks, it may be in-store only at this point, they usually do a round of testers before implementing anything in a big way.

Thanks MC, I may get around to it again. I recycle a lot of looks during a given season.

A little long for my tastes but otherwise perfect fit. Love the shoulders and sleeves in particular. Looks great on you. Where's it made?

Thanks, but I'm not sure how you're judging that in this pic, sleeve to skirt? Made by corneliani.

The new Polo I and II Custom Fits are amazing. The shoulders on the II are a little softer, it's a 3/2 with a great shape. I highly recommend them to anyone who likes RLBL or Polo PL Bradford. Make it's the custom fit, if its the regular Polo I or II then it's not the same.

That jacket looks great on you, especially given that it's unaltered.

The SF Consensus will probably bash the "anemic" lapel width, but I actually find a slimmer lapel to be more flattering on my frame. It's a somewhat '60s look, and the jacket reminds me of the BB Fitzgerald's cut and styling.

This is an exciting development.
