Looking to order a few of these online. I like the regular custom-fit very much, and am wondering if anyone knows how these differ? The description says "washed for the weathered hand of a timeworn favorite", but the picture seems no different than a regular polo. Any advice is appreciated.

I bought the Maui Pink one two months ago, but returned it. The sleeves were a bit longer than a regular custom-fit, and to me it looked and felt odd, like a hybrid between a classic and custom fit.

I have a couple of the "worn in" oxfords and polos, their basically just washed a bunch of times so there softer and look a bit worn in. Not that crazy abercrombie worn in with paint and extreme decolorization but a little fraying on the edges. I would say it should fit how a normal custom fit polo fits after a few washes.

Thanks Septavius. Exactly what I was looking for.

I don't want the distressed look. I just love the fit and these were on sale while the regulars were full price.
