1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    Dior polos are very nice and slim. In my opinion, Dior create some really simple polos but the details are in such right places.

    Does anyone have a J Crew tailored fit polo that they can provide measurements for (chest and length)? I'm not sure whether to go for small or medium, and of course their site's measurement guide is absolute garbage.

    I am 5'7 and 165 lbs with a muscular build. I wear a medium J Crew tailored fit polo. It fits me perfectly, as in tight around the arms etc. If i think i got a small i would've ripped it if i flexed. [​IMG]

    I ordered a couple of the J. Crew polos in large, we'll see how they work out.

    Once again, if anyone has actual measurements for these, please post them! This is the only thing keeping me from placing an order.

    Like I said, it's a monthly car payment for some of us.... and as nice as DH polos are, I'd rather drive! However you can probably find some nice knockoffs on someplace like yesstyle.com

    I bought a J.Crew "tailored fit" shirt online about a year ago. They were very untailored ( I suppose they may have sent me regular fit By accident).

    Fred Perry polos fit nicely, but at £40 (~$80) each, they're not cheap.

    Don't they have a logo and/or chest pocket?

    No pocket, and the logo isn't garish; actually it adds a little flair imo.

    anyone own this particular jcrew polo?

    http://www.jcrew.com/catalog/product...catId=cat90206

    its on sale right now, and i was wondering if these have a slim fit? I need some cheap polos as the process of building a decent wardrobe starts.

    any opinions on these? thanks.

    Yes it has a slim fit. I personally like the tailored pique one more for $5 more and there are more color choices, but hey, if $5 is a dealbreaker then go for it.

    Can you post a link to the ones you picked up Drizz? Because when I went into the store the vintage polo's were fit like tents.

    I've seen these online and have debated picking some up. However, I'm not sure on the size. In their washed favorite shirts, which are supposedly a slim fit, I need a small around the waist area, and the only part that's a bit too tight is across the widest part of my chest. Would I want the same size in these, or are they slim enough that a medium should work and not baloon around the waist?

    I've never tried on the washed favorite shirts. These polos are pretty slim. I posted a pic of the large a few weeks ago, and it's a nice slim fit on me. I wear mediums in lacoste retro, RL, and most other non slim-fit brands and larges in rogues gallery, apc, sunspel, and slimmer fit brands.

    Guess I'll try the M then. I'm a small in RL regular fit, and they are a tad short in the arms, but otherwise perfect. I'll add, I'm a small also in the J. Crew merino sweaters, but that's because I want them to fit like shirts, not like sweaters.
