Fit on the Slightly Larger Side
June 7, 2018
I bought the polo shirt to give the material quality and fit a test as most brands seem to be going towards a thinner/lighter materials and I was looking for something a bit denser/heavier weight (not really thicker). The overall material is ok. It's thinner than I was looking for, but overall will work in a pinch. The fabric has a waffle like pattern, but overall was fairly smooth both inside and out. After pulling it out of the bag and trying it on, I found the general fit to be slightly larger than expected (I bought the XL). It felt slightly loose around the chest area and the sleeves seemed a bit longer than normal (but was fine), but overall length of the polo was great (I'm approx. 5'9"). The area that had the most issues was the collar. It felt too high, almost like something Don Cherry would wear. Not only that, when it was buttoned up, there was almost 2" of free space. I'm gonna keep the polo and stick it in the wash/dryer and see if there's any shrinkage. Slight shrinkage may make the fit perfect (as long as the length doesn't change).
I don't know if I'd recommend purchasing one size down without seeing how a large would fit as it was only slightly larger than expected.
