    Hello all,

    Can anyone tell me anything about how recent-model Polo RL suits fit?

    For future eBay reference, as, every so often, I see a couple that appeal. The Melbourne Polo RL store near me currently has nothing in my size, so I can't just walk in and check.

    How are the shoulders, wide or narrow? Do the jackets run short or long? Trim at the jacket waist, or baggy? What about the trouser seat? Overall, are they true to size?

    Thanks guys...

    I have found that the shoulders run about average, but they are definitely one of the softer shoulders I have seen -- I like them very much. I have a 38" chest, a 32" waist, and am 18" across the shoulders. I am 5"10 160. I have found that a 38 blue label suit fits me quite nicely, if not a dab snug, though a 39 would fit very good as well. My sense is that for someone my size, the blue label is perfectly tapered in the coat. Not sure it would be a flattering cut on a portlier fellow.

    For the trousers, I think that they fit very average -- they aren't baggy, but not tight either. In my opinion, they are that perfect in between. The jacket length is average as well. The correct size should cover your seat, but not drop below that (I find this is a very good aspect of the blue label cut).
