THE ORIGINAL FIT
It doesn't get more classic than the Original Fit, a traditional cut of the polo shirt that falls on the body with extra room for everyday wear and comfort. Featuring a straight cut torso and longer sleeves, this fit is for guys who gravitate towards a timeless traditional or prefer a fuller fit on the body.
THE SPORTS FIT
The Sports Fit is a narrower cut of the polo shirt, fitted across the chest and shoulder for a modern look. With shorter sleeves and a slimmer silhouette throughout, this cut is ideal for guys who prefer a polo that sits on the body. A contemporary take on the classic polo, also made for everyday wear.
IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS
It's all about how the polo falls on the body, and now that you've found your perfect fit, it's time to dive into the details. So, other than deciding between the Original Fit and Sports Fit, what else should you look for when buying a men's polo?
SHOULDERS & SLEEVES
Like your usual dress shirt, the shoulder seam of your polo should sit directly on top of your shoulder bone. As for your sleeves, they should sit close to your arms and come about halfway down your biceps.
TORSO LENGTH & FIT
Just like any top, the length of your polo could make a massive difference to your look, as well as your proportions. For the perfect polo length, it should sit just below your belt, no lower than mid-fly. As for the fit, your polo should fall close to your body, with about 2.5cm to 5cm of excess fabric on either side of your torso as a general rule of thumb.
