    hello all,

    i'm 6'3, 180 or so, would like a trim fitting but long polo shirt. rl, for example: custom fit large has good length, but is too baggy in the body (my chest 41, my waist 32), custom fit medium is a bit tight and i stretch it in the upper body, but is too short. any recommendations on brands?

    under $100 would be optimal. pocket would be nice.

    thanks

    Under $100? Only online source I am aware of is Sunspel itself, and it comes to $125 USD- not sure if that even includes shipping.

    They recently raised the prices actually. I know you can get them for $116 with free shipping from ASOS. I got them for under $100 a few weeks ago.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I sell slim fit polos for $65. You can look at the measurements and see if they're long enough for you. You'll probably take an XL if you take L in RL.

    They are much slimmer than anything RL makes. They're closer to H&M in fit, though slightly slimmer than that.

    You can try www.tailorstore.com (not sure if right url) and make a custom polo shirt. Not entirely sure about the quality, haven't heard anything.

    Try Lacoste stretch, I am 5'6 and have 123lbs and they fit me really well.
    The Fred Perry slim line is supposed to be even slimmer, have a look at them as well.

    5'6" and 123lb! You make me feel fat (5'6" 140).

    Just found out I'm in fact 5'8'' and 123lbs, not used to your system of measurements...
    You should feel great, at least you might be able to buy regular clothing, I have to pay tons of money for MTM shirts, rare W28 trousers, XS of the slimmest polo shirts available, there is no way I am every going to find a well fitting cashmere sweater etc.

    Sunspel Riviera Polo

    I love the Riviera, but they are short in length. I'm 5'10" and medium barely goes past my belt.

    I tried TailorStore and had a good experience, although it took a second try. I also have Kent's two striped jersey polos and they are among my favorites.

    Also, I was just in Italy and got a bunch that are really nice and fit slim, so if you're ever there look around. I'm tempted to try Sunspel too. Anywhere in the US where they are stocked so we can try them?

    5"11, 42/44 inch chest and the Riviera in Large works for me. Have all three colors, wear them all the time in the summer[​IMG]

    Hickey (not HF) ones are cut slightly slimmer than the custom fit RL and slightly longer.
