    Dear all,

    I bought John Smedley Ives polo shirt from internet recently. It has different design from usual polos - it strongly tapers in shoulders after arm pits - the shoulder seam is going at about 45 degrees. So, I am confused - is it small for me or it is not for my body type? I looked at photos on John Smedley on internet - some polo shirts have similar location of shoulders, some not, but again models could wear wrong size, it does happen. What do you think - does it fit me?

    Thank you.

    P.S.: I like the polo, so I guess I will wear it in any case :D

    Asked my wife - she think shoulders are fine, but chest is tight. I like close fitting shirts, does this one look too tight?

    Yes, it's too small - too tight in the chest and too short. Also, the sleeve length isn't age-appropriate.
