  • Yep. It's a job requirement pretty much, at least once a year. Fortunately, for just an athletic tech kind of shirt, this fits fairly well, although I am sure I'm wearing it about 2 sizes smaller than everyone else here would.

    Too hot to pair it with an OCBD or anything else. Supposed to reach into the 80s today and I have a bit of outdoor picnic schmoozing to attend to. However, I am wearing my SLIMmest stone-colored chinos--yes, my sized down urban slims, believe it or no--and my white Sperry CVOs, so I'm feeling fairly sharp. I like the slim chinos with things like polos--feels very cool (literally) and clean.

    • You might want to try the Uniqlo dry pique polos. XS in these fit me perfectly and i really like these, i got these on sale for $15 each.

      Eh, wish my polos would fit as well. A small looks like a tent on me, and there are no good polo manufacturers in the US that make well-fitting XS sized polos (or golf shirts). I end up ordering from Asian or European brands.

        • The BR Luxe polos are pretty nice as well. I'm in between small and medium when I normally wear medium in other brands.

          I went to a dinner party wearing my red selvedge chambray made by Gustin and my Lands End navy blazer. So when I got home, I decided to make an album of me wearing all my shirts from Gustin. The pants are BR Kentfields. http://imgur.com/a/VcGUU

            What size do you normally wear? I recently found that Lands' End's tailored-fit pique polos work really well for me.

              Not a big believer in shoes, I see.

                Oh, I was at home and I don't wear shoes at home.

                  I usually wear a small, and buy them from Target and pay a tailor to make them smaller. But while good, they aren't as well fitting as I'd like.

                  I prefer athletic fits for the most part. I'll check out the LE pique polos - thanks!

                  • Ok. Not sure if they won't still be too big for you if you have to get Target's size small tailored to fit... but they fit pretty true-to-size as far as slimmer-fitting garments go. I normally wear a 36R jacket and a size small in most other shirts, and a small fits me well in LE's tailored polos.

                    • That's good to know. I am always on the lookout for good polos.

                      • [MENTION=11100]M. Montaigne[/MENTION], have you tried J. Crew's classic polos? They fit fairly trim without being skin-tight.

                        • [MENTION=6633]Duvel[/MENTION], yes I have. And in fact, I have two of them that I rather like.

                          I wish they had more "golf style" synthetic polos, though, but I do love what they offer.

                            Thanks for posting and look great. What size are they and what are your measurements? I have my first Gustins coming in next month (Army Canvas Chore Coat and Super Light Jeans) and am considering their shirts.

                                They are all medium. I'm 5'8", 170lbs, with a 41" chest, and 33 inch waist. Don't expect to button these up all the way though if you want them to fit just right, unless you're very very slim.
