    2 quick questions:

    1: What is your coolest wearing sportcoat? Fresco, wool hopsack, or wool/linen? I live in Houston and the heat can be unbearable.

    2: I am 5’8”, a 40s contemporary fit in your sportcoat and 16” 33 in your dress shirts. What size polo would you recommend? I was going to order medium, but I don’t want them skin tight. Would you suggest a large?

    Thanks!!

    @SpierMackay Just wanted to give an update and thanks in regards to the shrinkage/washing recommendations you gave. Washed them cold and didi short warm dry cycle. They shrunk in length by about 1.25Ē and are now perfect! Thanks!

    Really digging the cutaway collars too. Iíve seen mention of long sleeve versions for the fall. Iíll definitely be keeping an eye out for those.

    Coolest wearing would be fresco. It's the most open weave and air can blow right through it and any perspiration doesn't get trapped.

    For the polo, I would suggest a large if you are use to a more roomy fit. Then you can shrink it down with a wash/dry cycle to get a good fit. We actually designed them to shrink to size as we know most folks just chuck them in warm water and a dryer like they would a t-shirt.

    Excellent. We designed them with the intent that people would just wash/dry in warm and a dryer. So post wash they will be the correct, intended size.

    FWIW, I'm 5'7" 155, with a fairly prominent chest/upper back for my frame (in most OTR brand sportcoats, I'm a 38 in the chest, but shoulder width is more usually right in a 36), and the small is fitted in the chest, but not as fitted as a similarly styled Jomer's polo from last season (which I seem to have lifted myself out of over the winter) and skims the rest of my torso nicely, without being sausage tight. I have a small (and shrinking!) "spare tire" around my waist, particularly on the sides, and I didn't feel like that bit of bulge was conspicuous while wearing the shirt.

    It also seemed to loosen up a bit during the course of the day, but not in a way I would call stretched out. The material just seems to have a touch of "give" with wear.

    Thanks for the response! After comparing measurements to a few current shirts that I own, I took a flier on the medium. I like them a little more fitted and have dropped 15 pounds. I also do not dry my polos, so feel that they will work out perfectly. I bought a pair of fresco trousers but will have to wait on the sportcoat. You are sold out of 40s in the slim fit(again, I have dropped some weight). I hope there is a restock....
