    Does anyone know what the difference is between a Ralph Lauren dress shirt which says "classic fit" on the label and is made of thick oxford cotton and a Ralph Lauren dress shirt which says "yarmouth" on the label and is also made of thick oxford cotton?

    Is the fit different or is there no difference at all?

    Thanks for your reply. I've found that thread earlier but it doesn't say much about yarmouth vs classic fit.

    Hi, I have owned both the Ralph Lauren Classic Fit and the Yarmouth. The difference is mainly the fit. The Classic Fit is more tapered and cut smaller than the Yarmouth. The Yarmouth is a more fuller cut and relaxed fit with more room. The Yarmouth style is getting very hard to find these days too.
    Hope this helps.
