Sleeves Problem

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I just got a Ralph lauren polo.  In my experience, the torso is a little long and the sleeves are snug.  I put them in the washer and dryer before, and the length came out just right but the sleeves became too tight.  Is there any way to get around this?  I've already stopped working out my arms, I'm talking a quick solution.  Thanks.

Buy a different size? Or from a different manufacturer?

The sleeves might stretch a bit, but I don't know what else you are going to do. And "stopping working out" seems awfully drastic over a polo.

I would just try a bigger size.
Don't change the way you exercise.

I can't buy a larger size(XL) because it will be way too long.  I like to wear my polos shorter and more fitted than my long sleeve shirts.  I wear a medium tall or large for long sleeve shirts.  Then again it all depends on the brand.  I've stopped working out my arms because they are a little too big, my friend told me kind of disporportionately so lol.

what if I stretched out the sleeves before putting them in the washer and dryer?  Would that help?

  same sorta problem here. i just have the sleeve shortened - usually from the top of the sleeve instead of cuff.

Find a different brand that fits.

So stretching out the sleeves won't work?  I shop a variety of brands, but I think Ralph Lauren does polos the best.  They are comfortable and have the best designs.

PRL polo shirts are, to my mind, made to be tucked in. If by "too long" you mean they look funny untucked (and I agree that they do), I imagine that shortening the garment would be a simple task for any competent tailor.

I read in Details that you should always tuck in anything that's not a tshirt.  I don't agree though, I think dress shirts should always be tucked in, casual shirts, it depends, and polos never tucked in.  As for the tailor, I'm not rich haha.
