    I'd like to try RL's "Create Your Own" polo shirt service via their website, but they seem to have some inconsistent sizing instructions on their website. I have never bought a RL Polo before (typically wear Burberry and Lacoste) and was hoping someone could help me out.

    I am looking for an appropriate size that correlates to a 44" inch chest - I'm thinking its a Large, though on one spot on the page they mention it being a Medium - Anyone have a clue?

    Thanks,

    Panzer

    I wear a 42 jacket (43" chest) , and the XL "custom fit" is perfect for me across the shoulders and thu the chest. I think the standard polos are 1 size larger than marked vs. the custom fit, so I would wear a L in those. Your mileage may vary.

    Custom-Fit I think is more true to size, whilst Regular-Fit is "˜generously cut'. I wear a size 36 S (or R if it is Neapolitan-made) suit, and the arms, body, and neck of a Small Custom-Fit from RL fits me perfectly, not too tight, not to lose, like Goldilocks I find it just right. However, the length is a bit too long for my tastes for a shirt that is meant to be worn out. I am short, and my stomach is straight, i.e. it does not bulge to take over some of the length of the shirt, thus perhaps to others the shirt fits a-ok.
