    Anyone try their new custom made polo shirt function? Wondering what the material is like. Very inexpensive for a custom made polo.

    Saw this the other day, they look reasonable, decent value for money. Will probably order one to check out when my self imposed shopping abstinence is over at the end of the month.

    Aye. I saw this and thought "if these are decent, I can't see why I'd ever buy a polo shirt from anywhere else again."

    I have the worst luck with slim fitting polo's that are long enough. A small is always too short, and a medium is usually too boxy. I'll probably give this a try.

    hmm. Thanks for the tip, I am very interested in their polo's. I would be curios how the fabrics are. I have always bought Banana Republic polo's so I could get a large tall. But, they are not made very well.

    Has anyone ordered a dress shirt from TailorStore.com? Curious how it went and how nice the fabrics were.

    Polo's look interesting for sure...but based on their quality of shirting I would be surprised if they would last longer than one summer....

    Same here. For anyone that works out, by the time it fits around your arms it's way too long and/or boxy in the torso.

    It's like you're either built like a 16 year old boy or a 50 year old trucker. There's no inbetween.

    Yeah, that's my problem with the Ralph Lauren Slim fit polos...great fit in torso, but sleeve way too tight. I'll probably give the tailostore custom a try, after my own moratorium on shopping is over. However, I'm not a big fan of their logo on it. If anyone tries it before me, please post results.

    There is an option to take their logo off.

    I'll probably order at least one in the not-too-distant future as well, without the Tailor Store logo (just my initials).

    I ordered a made to measure polo shirt from Tailor Store a couple days ago. Atlantic blue, MOP buttons, no logo and my initials on the chest. Will let everyone know how it turned out as soon as it arrives.

    I ordered the same thing on friday. Unfortunately the white fabric is currently not available. I wanted to do white cuffs and white placket. Oh well.

    Just received an email from tailorstore about their new range of polo colours and was wondering if any of the orders have come in and what people think of them?

    Mine should be here any day now. I'll let everyone know of the quality once it does. The white colour option is back too btw.
