    Express Performance Polo Shrinkage?

    What's everyone's experience with the Express Performance Polos? I loved the style and fit in the photo on the recent Polopalooza post. I'm 5'10" 200lbs like Joe, but just a little less fit than he is. While a large fits my torso well, it's definitely snug in the sleeves and across the shoulders. As-is, I like the fit, but I'm worried that if it shrinks up after the first wash it will be too tight.

    Joe's photo from the Polopalooza post for reference.

    Mine haven't shrunk.

    Did you try one on? I would think a large would be pretty tight on 200lbs. I'm the same height, 170, and a large is a fairly trim fit on me. A medium in some of the express polos would look painted on me.

    Yeah, I have two with the tags still on, debating sending them back. I'm worried that an XL will be huge. I'll post a pic with it on after work.

    I have two, they never really shrunk on me. And I'm hyper aware since I'm 6'2 but wear a Large. any shrinkage will make them too short.

    I just went ahead and ordered a few XLs to compare. I'll take some comparison photos when they arrive.

    Mine have shrunk. Not horrifically, but enough to be noticeable.
