    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I was thinking about the w+h polo but was a bit put off when i found out the medium measured 21" pit to pit. I might consider it still, but i was hoping for 20". Where can i find the marc jacobs stinky rat polos online?

    How much do the AA polos shrink post-wash, no dry? A small fits me perfectly unwashed off the rack.

    I bought 3 mediums a couple months back...they didn't shrink too much, just a little in length (which worked out ok, the seemed a bit long). What bugged me is that one seemed to be cut different, the neck is smaller around, so it buttons a bit off. Their QC is spotty...

    Not to Hijack too much, but I am planning a trip to the RL store or outlet this weekend to pick up some new custom fits. I was going to go for a white, a blue, and either a light pink or lavender. Between those two, which would you say? I'm comfortable rocking either color, but am just a little unsure, considering I'll likely only get one of the two.


    can't really advise on the color question, as I don't know your coloring, but be forewarned that finding "custom fit" polos (or shirts for that matter) at the outlets can be very tricky.

    Original Penguins are good too, though a bit short.

    Honestly, the best fitting polos I have are vintage from the late '70s and early '80s, Lacoste and otherwise.

    Actually, I learned something very interesting when trying on polos at Bloomingdales. A regular fit small fits me a lot better than custom fit medium. The CF was too short in the body and arms, as well as a bit big in the waist. However the small, once the arm holes stretched a tiny bit, fit perfectly. It fit so well that I bought it. And the next day I was at the Santa Monica Pier, and a gul took a big green shit on it. I hate birds. But I digress.
