    The problem with this is not all of them say "Polo I, II, III or IV". One of mine says "Blue Label". I know the Bradford fits good on the jacket, but the pants are tighter than Incotex.

    That surprises me. I just checked my Polo coats, and all of them indicate the model on their tag. I've stopped buying OTR, so most of these coats are a few years old. Perhaps they've changed.

    Isn't the polo I, II, III, and IV just differences in # of pockets and vents? I've read that IV is supposed to be slimmer, but that isn't the case for me between my polo IV and polo II SCs I have.

    Yup. I love the slim sleeves, the silhouette, the cloth, and the lapel roll. This should be it for now.

    BTW, I doubt PL would work for me if these fit so perfectly.

    IMHO
    Polo is for teens and 20's
    Purple Label for grown ups.

    I [​IMG] Polo.
    I'm a fan, too. Interestingly, I wore it a lot in high school then moved away from it but came back to it in the last few years. I find myself buying more of it all the time now.
