1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Hey, I just bought a shirt from the Polo store today that ended up not fitting me. It is a Custom Fit orange and white "candy stripe" button down shirt. It is one of the more expensive ones -- 100s two-ply that retails for $125. I'm going to take it back, but thought I'd offer it to someone here first. It basically looks like this only in orange. Also, it doesn't have a pony or a pocket. I paid $42. I'm asking $43 (to cover Paypal fees) and $3 to ship. Let me know.

    Johnny,

    Could you provide measurements for the shirt? Also, does it have pattern matching?

    Thanks,

    Dan

    The measurements are 15.25 neck, and 34.25 sleeve. 43 inch chest, with about 3.5 inches of taper through the waist (custom fit is pretty slim flitting, with a higher armhole). Shoulders are about 18.5". Top of collar down is about 33.25". The shirt is cut with the back tail longer than the front tail; I'm 5'10" and I'd feel comfortable wearing it untucked, but it isn't a short hem like you'll see on a Dries Van Noten of Steven Allen shirt.

    The pattern matching at the sleeve head is decent. The left shoulder is nailed almost right on, but they missed just a dab on the right shoulder.

    Too big for me, but thanks anyway. Good luck.
