Snapped a quick pic in one, sorry I couldn't find my tripod. I am 5'9", about 180 and wear a 15.5" Contemporary pretty well for sizing.

 

This is an OG SM polo in size Large (I wear a slim M in Bonobos and Brooks Brothers polos and they fit very similar to the SM Large). Great pretty much everywhere but maybe a hair wide in the body for some people.

A suggestion, why don't you guys pre-wash all the fabrics to reduce the shrinkage factor even more? If not, is it possible to request this on a custom order? Although asking every single time is kind of moot and could be disastrous on the times we forget.

 

Hi Rick, would you mind enlightening me on this?

I've searched this thread high and low and cannot find a photo of these dress collar polos. Can't someone link the post? Very interested.

Fine twill, Royal twill, Pin Oxford or Royal Oxford. All work well in the respects you are looking for.

 

What are the main differences between the four options above?  Are some of the fabrics more opaque than others?  What about softness/thread count/weight/drape of these fabrics in comparison to each other?

Nice. I'm liking these. Hopefully I can find a size that works. Any chance of making a long sleeve version? :fonz:

Really dumb question here. I want to pick up some of the khakis but the size chart confuses me. Would I just select my normal waist size? Actual garment measurements and the waist section are different.

Measure a pair of trousers you currently have the fit well in the waist. You'll probably find that the actual waist measurement is 1 or 2 inches larger than the tagged size. This is typical. All of my trousers are size 32, but if the actual waist measurement of any of those trousers was 32", then they'd be too tight.

The pattern we use would be on the most recent. So changes made would be against that pattern. We can pre-wash the fabric on request, but this is not ideal as the cloth becomes difficult to handle in the machine after the tiny bit of starch is washed out.

All use the same 2/80's x 2/80's yarn, but in different weaves/density. The royal twill has the most loft, and therefore softness, but the fine twill will be smoother. The pin oxford behaves similar to a poplin/boradcloth, but a bit more opaque. The royal oxford has a more open weave and is the lightest of the bunch.

Are the new polos a decent upgrade fabric wise compared to the original run polos?

Day/Night difference. Different Yarn, different knitting. It has a dry/cool hand now which is much more comfortable for hot summer.

Just a PSA for our US customers.

 

Our first return free for suiting is now up and running. Lowers the risk to try our suiting to get your fit locked down.
