    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.

    Yeah, I would go with the M for sure.

    I have a few of those. They're a good value for a fitted polo. If you have bigger arms like drizzt you may find the arm holes a bit tight and the sleeves a bit short, but it's not a dealbreaker.

    The chest/waist measurements on the J. Crew polo are also not as tapered as I'd prefer. I'm a 40 chest, 30 waist and the chest is a bit tight, the waist a bit loose on a men's size M. But again, miles better than non-fitted mass offerings, and hard to beat for $25/shirt.

    I just ordered one in M and in L. Just in case anyone's looking to try them on in the store, I found out they're only available online or from the catalog. Stores aren't carrying the slim fit.

    Hm, interesting. I wear a L and feel the fit is generally spot on. Perhaps I like the chest in polos to be a bit more fitted than you. The waist seems to fit quite well for me. I agree that the arms are on the tighter side, but I like that in polos in any case.

    Does anybody know where to get Made in England Fred Perry Polos? I have two, but they are both made in China. While the fit is OK, it's certainly not the best and the fabric isn't holding up all that well after several washes.

    Seems like Oi Polloi is the only site that I could find the made in England ones on, but have only one or two colors. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the MiE ones go by chest size (38,40 etc...) rather than small/medium/large?

    Nice. Do they fit true to size? I'm pretty much a small in everything, but like my polos to be fairly fitted. It says they have a "generous" fit, but I always thought the MiE ones were fairly fitted.

    what's your jacket / waist size?

    I was going to order a couple of these and I'm 44 jacket, 34 waist but the sizing chart says the Large is for 41-43 shoulders and ther XL is 44-46

    do they stretch out at all?

    46 jacket, 33.5 waist... I like my polos to fit quite slim though. I posted a pic of this polo in the WAYWN a few weeks ago, you can search for it if you want.

    I think I found it below. The waist looks fine and the shoulders would probably work for me since you a bit bigger than I am (46 vs 44)


    how do they stretch by the way???

    They stretch a bit like any cotton shirt, not a huge amount but a decent amount.

    That would have to be Burlington Black Label. Try and share your experience.

    Any new ideas here? Are there any good alternatives to the JCrew ones? Ideally I'd like jersey, slim fit, and not too long.

    picked up a fred perry/raf simons polo off gilt recently, excellent fit and quality. I was pleasantly surprised (which is unusual for my gilt impulse buys).

    I tried a James Perse recently and found it really baggy. As for the other, I should have added that I'd prefer something without a logo if possible. Thanks though.
