Interesting collection of FP Clouseau.
The Nigel Cabourn ones,I have seen them on offer online,the fit looks quite generous do you go down a size ?.
I have bought 5 FP polos in the last 2 years and the quality is variable even amongst the 4 made in China ones,I also got caught out with the slim fit last year (I didn't realise there were slim fit and regular) according to the assistant in the FP shop this year they have gone back to one fit.
Also on the slim fit that I bought the collar seems slightly smaller,colour fading is also a problem in the darker coloured ones.
My conclusion with FP is that you have to look at each item separately,some will be ok others not,same as so many other brands these days.
I have seen online an FP made in England Harrington that looked very nice in the pictures,would be interested to see one not that I need a Harrington at the moment.
about the Nigel Cabourn/FP polo, yes i went one size down, and the fit is good, but still a little big. I think the cut of their polos changed each year. The first ones were really oversized. The second ones (the one i bought) were still oversized, but far less. And the actual ones (- the one MrK bought- seems to be generous but not that big.)
Your conclusion about FP is good, i agree with it, in the case of the MIChina ones some doesn't look that bad, but they won't last whatever the case, and they fade really quick. As i said before, very easy for me to compare with the other ones made in different countries and in different times (1980s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s). The Chinese are fragile and they tear apart after a certain number of wash.
Now about the MIE FP Harringtons. They are quality indeed, a close friend only wears FP Harringtons. In my case, and with my classical taste (Personal preference) i don't like to have a logo on a Jacket.
