Haha yes, but I'd rather it be exact as I've never measured a shirt before. If he says no, I'll have to do it myself (which is no big deal, I know)

Do you ship to the UK? If so, is the try-at-home offer available for UK residents? If not, I have a ralph lauren mesh polo in a slim fit medium that I like the fit off, however would like to add two inches to the length and an inch to the arms. Do you know the measurements of said polo so I can input them into your Fit ID options.
Minipower - Yes we ship to UK. However, we do not offer Home Try on to UK. Instead, if I can have you measure a few important points on that RL Polo, we can match the fit type with our size adjustment tool. Here are the measurements that we need to capture (Shoulders, Half Chest, Half Waist, Front Length and Sleeve Length). See guide below.

You can either DM me your results (firstname.lastname@example.org) or use our online sizing tool to define the adjustments yourself. Hope this helps!
Nice coverage for us here on TechCrunch talking about our newly launched home try on program. This allows any potential customer to order 3 of our 24 sizes and try it on at home then use that shirt as a guide to define further adjustments to the shirt to nail the perfect fit. We offer adjustments to 7 areas of our garments. Shoulders, Chest, Waist, Body Length, Sleeve Length, Sleeve Across and Cuff Opening. We charge $20 for the program that converts to store credit once the shirts are returned. However, for our SF friends, we would allow you to test drive the program at no cost! Just email us at email@example.com and we will set you up!
By the way, if you create an account for the first time, we are currently offering (as of 9/27) $20 of store credit! Just go to www.vastrm.com and register a new account.

Introduction: Do I get a cookie for posting a review? Kidding. I first learned about Vastrm here on SF. Bought my first polo of the year from Kent Wang, proceeded to find this thread and figured I would give it a shot. I got in contact with Jonathon via this thread and a week or two later I received three shirts for the at home try on program.
Construction / Material: Most definitely top notch. I ordered the standard pique, self fabric collar, plaid placket, default buttons. Everything seems superbly constructed. I've washed the polo probably 7 or 8 times now and still fits very close, if not identical to when it was new. Stitching is very well done - the button holes and the placket are seamless. I would most definitely order MOP buttons next time.
Fit: I'm 5'10 150lbs (working on my fitness - I'm what I like to call "Skinny Fat") and ordered the Slim Fit Small. The starting fit was fairly good, however I had Vastrm shorten the sleeves by half an inch and taper the waist by one whole inch.
Gripes: I wish the collar was a wider spread. A reasonably cut-away collar would have been perfect. I don't recall this being an option - is there one?
Dun Dun Dun ... Pictures!
Both are great. Arm holes on the KW are a tad too large for me. The collars are very different. Not sure about terminology but he Vastrm collars seem to be more structured than the KW. The KW collars are more ‘flimsy’ but they still prop up nicely because of the collar band. My KW collar is cut-away, where the Vastrm has less of a cut. I would also say that the material on the Vastrm is a touch thicker than KW which is nice. I should also say that KW shrank more in the wash than Vastrm.
Again, both are great. Being able to customize your fit with Vastrm might be the icing on the cake.
