    Hopefully the above link shows the shirt I'm referring to. But I would like to find short sleeve polos that have longer than usual sleeves, because I have longer than average arms for my size. As you can see burberry carries them in the Men's spring/summer collection. It is a bit expensive for me though, being still in school. Does anyone know a cheaper alternative? Thanks!

    Most polos targeted to the older market usually have longer sleeves. Like Brooks Brothers, Bobby Jones, etc. Check out your local discount stores which usually have plenty of.

    I feel like regular RL POLO polos has pretty long sleeves for a short sleeve.

    Ya reg fit RL polos do have longer sleeves. They aren't very slim though. They also have the tennis tail that makes them awkward to wear untucked like most college students do.

    footlocker has polo shirts that are almost always on sale for dirt cheap (like $3.00 per shirt). I ordered a few when I bought a pair of shoes, but ended up giving them away because the arms were too long. size way down because they are baggy.

    Yeah, "golf shirt" seems to be what he's looking for. Correctly-sized slim golf shirts, however, are very hard to find and especially on a budget. Try to find something long enough in the arm then size down 1 or 2 might work.

    Penguin "earl" polos have a really slim fit but the sleeves are longer than usual
