    I didn't really know where to ask this so I came here to where I find a lot of useful information. How exactly are polos suppose to fit? I just refreshed part of my wardrobe with getting some custom-fit raulph lauren polos. there is a link below showing how they fit on me. The front seems to fit but the tail drapes over my *** like a dress.

    Not a good fit at all. That extra long tail on the backside looks ridiculous. I'd venture to say that even the front is too long, but that's more of a personal preference. Polo RL polo shirts are cheaply made, overpriced, horribly fitting POS shirts that frat boys wear. For these reasons, I stay away from them.

    Also, ditch the cargo shorts.

    You probably need to go down a size. Mine are a little snug in the chest; a custom fit polo shouldn't be 'baggy' on you.

    Yeah, I plan on ditching the cargos but they were the only thing laying around that i could easily put on. Also, I can't go down any size, I'm already at a small. I think ralph laurens just aren't a good fit for shorter people.

    You might want to try Kent Wang polos. I have no experience with them myself, but they are highly regarded on the forum, and seem to offer the fit you are looking for.

    Thanks for the advice and I'll check that brand out. I might just get this shirt tailored or something because The store is 2 hours away.

    and if those gigantic 90s cargo shorts "are the only thing laying around that you can put on" then its time to torch everything you own and start over.

    Rugby polos are available in xs and fit similar to Polo custom fit, perhaps a tad slimmer/shorter. At sale price they're worth giving a shot if you can get over the skull/crossbones logo. Also your cargo shorts look like burlap sacks filled with cottage cheese.

    +1 on Kent Wang. The fit is really great. Don't think you can find a better pick in that price range (sub $70)
