    Anyone rock the fitted soft cotton polo shirts? (not mesh) Who sells them at a reasonable price? I am skinny/short but I have a well defined chest.

    Sunspels are not bad. The sleeves kind of lose shape quickly after wearing them though, but once you wash them you're okay again.

    I waited for their huge 40-50% sale and bought two rivieras. Great fit in the body and shoulders. Great material too

    I love fitted polos.

    Sunspels are by far the best in their price range. As above poster said: material, fit, shell buttons are all great. I do agree they lose shape a bit though, especially the softer collars.

    I've since upgrade to John Smedley polos. Price is quite a bit more, but I prefer the quality and the weight of the fabric. (£100-130.)


    This is tempting: http://www.polosophy.it/eng/index.html

    Those look really very nice, any idea how much they charge?

    Strangely, they don't have all the colors anymore, but I really enjoy LE Canvas Polo shirts. I'm a size 36/38 in jackets and I bought their size S. Fit picture. Sorry for the quality. [​IMG]

    You might want to try the new Kent Wang polos. I saw them the other day on the web. His styles tend to be more modern slim fits. I am going to give one a try to see how they hold up.

    +1. I have several, and they are great polos. Fit very well.

    OK, I'm buying more polos from them. The summer is officially here and I go through them faster than I can launder them.

    H&M polos are very decent too. The trick is not to put them in the dryer so that they don't shrink. Cold wash and hang dry

    I have both, and LE beats them by far. Mostly in terms of fabric quality. Also, the H&M polos have a shitty collar. I bought 6 more polos from LE and I'll be throwing the H&M ones out.

    "Bendy" collar? Are the LE canvas ones more rigid?
