    Agree with you there. The polos before was much better I don't think they are making them in england anymore, turkey or something like that. That may be the issue.

    But still overall best polos and underwear for me :)

    Let me know if this helps:

    As an aside, our (Vastrm) custom style and fit polos could match your sizing precisely. Our slim fits happen to be almost identical to your RL custom fit polos. But if you prefer, if you send us a shirt we could measure it out. Your RL polo may have shrunk in length during wash cycles. Did it fit better new? or did it hold its shape pretty well? Our polos will typically shrink < 1% after 20 wash cycles. Quality of our fabrics have been on par with many of the Italian brands (Cucinelli, Loro Piana, Zegna).

    That guide does help , thank you. It appears as if I would take a large per their measurements. Where are the Vastrm polos made?

    Currently, we manufacture in Thailand. Thailand has a rich history in knitwear and have some of the most skilled seamstresses in the world when it comes to cotton knits. Our factory also produces for the likes of Fred Perry, Burberry and Nordstrom private label, fwiw. We have an algorithm in-house that can help you determine the right fit. If you dm me jtang@vastrm.com I can recommend either sunspel or vastrm polo sizing that would fit you properly. We have actually sold quite a few of the 007 style polo that Daniel Craig was wearing in the film. Our version of the 007 is made with an extremely soft interlock cotton. We can tweak it by adding accents on placket or inside collar band to add more style or keep it simple (all black). And of course, we can custom tailor it to your body type, by request.

    Is there any way that they will drop down to 75% sale? Or should I just buy now?

    Buy now, it says on the site that this is the final reduction.

    They used to have last sale 70-75% sale. But this time it seems this 60% is the last one. Go for it!

    Thought I would post my questions here as it's appropriate, although it doesn't seem there's much action here lately...

    I'm interested in getting hold of some Sunspel chinos. Sizing on the website is limited to waist and inseam lengths - I'm particularly interested in thigh, front rise and hem. Does anyone have a chart, or have experience in how these actually fit? Also, it says in the description that they've "tweaked" the fit this season, but I'm not sure what season they're actually referring to?!

    I wanted to buy some of their polo tshirts but they seem to be made in turkey. I wanted to try Sunspel as I like British style and brands but this is not the case anymore in here. Only some tshirts are still made in england.

    I would just order again from John Smedley, as I m very satisfied with their products and they are made in UK.

    Not all Sunspel's stuff is made in Turkey. Knitwear is made in Portugal, loopback in Turkey.

    I have many of their polos, tshirts and knitwear, can't really fault it.

    Also, by the time there are sales in December, are all the smaller sizes going to be sold out?

    Do they have 20% off every November? There are a couple items I want to pick up, but I can wait.

    hoit, did you ever get the info on this or the chinos themselves? I'm interested in ordering a pair to go along with the loopback sweater.

    I don't think a thread on such a great brand should be dead.

    Just got some nice sale items, so thought I'd update people on current/last season. I used to wear a small in sunspel t-shirts. The best fitting t-shirts I've ever had. Unfortunately they have completely reworked the sizing and now the xs is a lot larger than the old small. Wider, longer, far bigger neck hole. Beautiful colour dyes though.

    However, the merino polos are absolutely stunning. Portuguese made but the fit is as tailored as tailored knitwear gets. Nice big collars too and better colours than Smedley.
