    I have had a couple of mine for a few months and no issues with the points. They still look nice and straight as they should.

    Hey Kent,

    Please consider adding more colors to the polo offerings. I'd love to see a selection of heathered fabric.

    There will be some new colors in late November.

    Long-sleeve polos
    , aka rugby shirts, are here. Available in three colors now; more colors will be available in late November.
    A hybrid between a casual rugby and a woven shirt, these rugbys feature a spread collar that’s built with a collarband so that it’ll lay open elegantly, and button cuffs—with mother of pearl buttons, of course. Appropriate on its own, layered with a sweater, or even a sportcoat.

    Do the polos shrink when washed at home?

    Also, what is the approx sleeve length on the rugby's? It says 25'' for M. Does that correspond to 33-34''?

    I added this information to the polo shirt care section on my website:

    If hang dried, shrinkage will be almost imperceptible, except the rugby will shrink about half an inch in the sleeves. If machine dried, there will be a small amount of shrinkage.

    Conventional retail sizing for sleeve length is the rather bizarre formula of (sleeve length plus half of shoulder width), so M would correspond to 33.75".

    Would you mind posting a pic of yourself wearing a polo? I'm trying to decide between M and L... I like the way Lands End Canvas Jersey polo in S fits me. Can you comment how yours compare? I'm afraid the M might be too tight for my liking compared to the LE polos

    I don't have photos of myself, but there are some of other customers earlier in this thread, including:


    I don't have personal experience with Land's End, but you should definitely size up at least one. I suggest that you just give M a try, you can always return or exchange it.

    Sad to see the sweater disappear. You wouldn't have any left in stock in a Medium size? Any plans to bring it back?

    Definately a M, a S would be way too tight.

    I'm working on a new sweater for next winter. Yes, it's a long time from now, but product testing takes a long time.
    Right.
