    +1. I have shirts that range from M-L with P2P measuring about 22-23"
    That's assuming you're getting the newer stuff. I've seen smalls in the 24" ballpark. People should keep in mind that there's a lot more to a shirt than just the chest measurement. On paper, their western shirts should fit loose given that their chest is usually around 22", however, because of the cut you would have a hard time breathing in a small. It's not the grading, it's the cut.

    Yeah, its the newer stuff. You bring up a good point because I have a ~10 year old chambray tagged a Large that measures 26" in the chest. Its made from a really light, thin fabric that works great in the summer with the sleeves rolled up. [​IMG]

    can't you just take pics of the shirt by itself? that would be good enough.[​IMG]

    Just bought a RRL http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...#ht_3578wt_905 polo shirt. Kinda worried about the 'made in China' tag though :/ Any experience with RRL's 'made in China' products?

    With the exception of jeans, almost all the RRL stuff is made in China. Quality is top notch, though. Not an issue at all.

    is that a pen slot? POLO by RL actually ripped this exact design off and is making shirts like this now.
