Polo and rugby shirts


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.

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.

Over a few washes, if hang dried, shrinkage will be almost imperceptible, around 0.5" in shirt length. For the long-sleeve rugby, the sleeves may also shrink around 0.5". If machine dried, shrinkage may be around 1". We cannot accept returns on washed or worn garments.

Additional spare buttons are available at no charge.


We no longer offer made-to-measure, as we are concentrating on our RTW production. Polo shirts can be easily altered by your local tailor.
