Measurements Polo RL shirts - classic fit vs custom fit

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I'm thinking about buying myself one or two Polo RL sport shirts. However I feel a bit uncomfortable with the sizes and therefore wonder if I should get them in custom or classic fit and in medium or large. The only available size chart is very approximated: http://www.crawfordclothing.com/myfiles/image/men_polo_Ralph_Lauren_size_chart_table.jpg

 

I'm 182 cm tall (5 feet 11.6536) and weigh about 85 kg (187 lbs) and my chest measures about 107-111 cm (approx. 43 inches). I'm not fatty.

 

Usually I go for classic fit in medium, but according to the chart I should get a classic fit in large, plus it's US sizes. What the fuck!?

 

Someone who's about the same size as me that can give me input?

 

Regards,

Guillou

I am the same height, 176 lbs., 16 inch neck and I have a 40 inch chest. I wear a custom fit L. I wish I knew what my shoulders are because they are about perfect on a Custom L and a Classic L is just a little bigger in the shoulders I believe. I do not have an athletic build, more like skinny fat.

 

Good Luck.

I wear a size S and have owned both in the past. I have a few that I wear currently, but I can't wear the classic fit as they're too baggy. I measured what I have though and there is a difference of about 3 centimeters or around a 1 1/2 inches armpit to armpit between the two.

Thank you guys! I think I'll go for custom fit in large then!
