Polo help

I plan on ordering a Ralph Lauren Polo from their website but I have a huge problem with sizing

I want my polos to fit sort of slim to the point where it's really skinny around my torso and the sleeves are short(best explanation I could give lol, something like this http://cdnd.lystit.com/photos/2013/01/03/polo-ralph-lauren-pacific-royal-slimfit-mesh-polo-product-1-5924456-705573315_large_flex.jpeg )

I'm around 6'3-6'4(1.92m) and I usually wear a size XL(sometimes XXL) t shirts and I have a few polos as well but they're mostly sport ones which are of no help. So with that being said, should I get my regular XL or a size down(L)?

Please don't direct me to the sizing chart I don't have anything to measure myself with(and even if I did have anything I'd probably fuck that up) and there are no Polo stores here either seeing as how I live in the most idiotic city there is so I'm just looking for answers from people who actually own Polos and wear them just as I explained
