    All the measurements I can find for Lacoste polo shirts seem to make me think the fit is a little larger than most brands. My general casual polos are small size (I like a slimmer fit) in brands such as A+DAM, BR, Express, and RL can anyone without doubt recommend the matching size in Lacoste? I live in OKC, OK so finding decent clothes to try on isn't always fun with typical time constraints and my laziness of course. After reading this it sounds like I need to buy more than polos since I have tons for casual wear so any other style suggestions are welcome.

    Size 4 most probably.

    They do fit larger. I typically wear a medium, but I wear a small in lacoste. Maybe you should try an extra small?

    A Polo Ralph Lauren Small will translate into a Size 4 in Lacoste. Size 3 is very hard to find and you should also keep in mind that Lacoste will SHRINK if you put it into a dryer. Shrinkage is the main reason why Lacoste shirts tend to cut big comparing to some of its competitors.

    I wear a small in every shirt, except for Lacoste, in which I would be wearing a size 2 (if they made it). I recommend you do not get a Lacoste polo if you normally wear a small, because even a size 3 (XS) is equivalent to a medium.
