Polo and rugby shirts

Fit

The fit is very slim, slightly slimmer than H&M and Zara, much slimmer than Polo Custom Fit, Brooks Brothers Slim Fit, Banana Republic, J. Crew and nearly all other US retail brands. No vanity sizing, so select one size larger than what you usually wear in most American brands.

The sizes do not correspond exactly with our shirts and sweaters; their rough equivalents are listed below. Measurements are in inches.

Made-to-measure

We can make custom polo shirts for $85 each, $105 for rugbys, minimum order of 3 shirts at a time. Can be a mix of polos and rugbys, and a mix of colors. This will take about six weeks to produce. Choose from any of the colors currently available. You will have to try on one of our ready-to-wear shirts (which you can return) and note how you would like to modify the measurements (e.g. +1" waist, -1" length). This is the same method we use for our made-to-measure woven shirts and results in a perfect fitting shirt the first time around.

Care

As with all shirts, machine wash cold on the gentle cycle and hang dry only. Heated drying will shorten the life of your shirt, as will the chemicals used in dry cleaning. A few minutes in the dryer on the no heat, air puff cycle before hang drying will reduce wrinkling. Also avoid bleach and fabric softener.

If hang dried, shrinkage will be almost imperceptible, except the rugby will shrink about half an inch in the sleeves. If machine dried, there will be a small amount of shrinkage. We cannot accept returns on washed or worn garments.

Additional spare buttons are available at no charge.
