Is high quality, yet fits well? I'm about 5'9''-5'10'', 190 and lean, but can't seem to find any quality clothing brands that fit well, and i'd really appreciate it if anyone had any recommendations. Fred Perry fits pretty well if that helps at all.

I've tried using the search button, but it hasn't been very helpful.


Thanks,
Mark

I'm about the same, just slightly taller. RL Custom Fit Polos in a Large fit me very well. I also hear good things about Lacoste Slim fit ones though I've yet to try them.

XL custom fits by RL fit well, but I'm trying to find something a little higher quality. The RLPL polos flare too far out at the bottom, so those aren't an option.

Lacoste slim fits are too small for my shoulders :/

Thanks though

I'm a bit bigger, 6'0, 200, 42 chest 32 waist, and agree that RL custom fit in L fits decently well. Surprisingly, I've also found Merona (Target's house brand) "Ultimate Polo" in M to also fit very well especially after a hot wash and dry.

EDIT: The Meronas seem to stretch significantly with wearing (and sweating, as is usual in Southern California) so I sized down one more to Small.

The Custom Fit ones I have do not, the regular fit do... Maybe you should look into finding ones which fit in the chest and shoulders, them paying an alterations/tailor to take in the waist. Would probably cost $10-15 per shirt.

Which still goes back to the original question: Which companies make quality polos with quality materials?
