Does anyone know if Burberry will start making the ever-popular "custom" slim fit polo shirts? I've got about 5 RL custom fit polo's, and they fit perfectly. Anyone know if burberry will follow suit?

Also, another question: At what age to higher end clothing or shoe stores start hiring stockboys (people who stock shelves, work in the back, etc) ? I'm looking for a job during the year and don't want to get laughed out of the store as I apply.

Burberry makes slim-fit polos. Check their website for your nearest boutique.

I don't see any slim fit polo's listed on their website, are you sure? The last time I was at the store they didn't have any that they knew of.

They have some slim-fit polos, but all the ones I saw in the boutique said "BURBERRY" on the placket.

Anyone know if they have them in the Burberry store on Newbury St.? If not, maybe Neiman Marcus or Barney's?

Emailed Burberry and got this in return:

Thank you for contacting Burberry.

The tags that are inside of our polo shirts may say Slim Fit, however we
do not actually make a slim fit polo. The item is actually true to
size. We apologize for any confusion that this may cause.

Please let us know if we may assist you further. Thank you again for
contacting us.


Sincerely,

Burberry

They'll have it in the Newbury St. store. I'd suggest trying one on to yourself to determine fit, becaue often, one man's 'slim-fit' is another man's 'oversized.'
