    Can a polo shirt be altered by a tailor or something like that?

    Better to just have one made for you.

    I would believe so, but what's to be tailored? I'm sure he/she can trim the silhouette if that's what you want.

    I've seen several small men's stores offering "semi-custom" polo shirts, but with so many brands offering unique silhouettes, I don't think you can justify the cost.

    If I have a polo made from Zegna fabric, can I tell people I own a "custom Zegna polo shirt?" Thanks.

    Tailors can slim up the sides and also shorten the length, depending on what the problem is.

    If you're looking for a looser fit, it will stretch out over time. [​IMG] Just kidding. If you want a slimmer fit, you should just get one of the Polo Custom Fit polos which are slimmer than the regular production ones.

    I think by design they are for that untailored look. I just buy off the rack.

    I think Kent Wang will do a custom polo for $20 more than his regular prices.
