Where to buy slim fit polos?

Hey guys, I'm looking to buy a couple slim fitting polos but haven't had much luck. I've tried the stuff from Ralph Lauren but their size S fits like a L on me. Does anyone have any recommendations on what brand/where to purchase them?

H&M. Quality isn't there but it fits me pretty good and it's only $15 dollars each.

What Santofu said. If you're just looking for a basic solid colour, they have some pretty soft and stretchy ones for $15.

Slim fit too, and they shrink in width a decent amount.

Express in Pacific Centre.
However, wait for their yearly everything 50% discount if you can.
Otherwise their Polos are quite slim fitting.

Burberry London fits way better than brit.
I tried the brit medium, and it was too short on me, but was good across the chest.
Brit large was too loose and baggy
The Burberry London Large was perfect for me.
Quality is way nicer.
A bit pricier, but worth it.
I'm 6', 185lbs btw

I usually don't take care of my clothing, and the few Lacoste shirts I have require extra care.

I basically throw them into my washer and bam, it destroys the shirt.

So... that is the end of the line for me for Lacoste shirts.

Their shirts are very high quality though.

Personally, I like a few of their shirts, but a lot of them have very "special" colours or simply "too colourful" that are not my style.

I prefer Polo by Ralph Lauren or Tommy Hilfiger.

Now, those, I can throw them into my washer and wash away without problems.

Don't waste your time with Lacoste polos, just average quality with a brand stuck on it.

Wait till you wash them, they shrink quite a bit, and yes they get ruined easily as stated above.

I find J Crew slim line polos are pretty good for the quality, if you wanna save some bucks you can hit up the factory store but its online only (closest ones are hundreds of kilometers away). Sometimes there are sales and end up being 20$ each

You could try Brooks Brothers as well

Nice.

I made the mistake of washing them like normal shirts and the elasticity basically went away.

I think they need to be dried clean or washed in a "soft" setting on your washer.

In any case, I suggest reading the polo tags inside to make sure.

+1 for Ralph Lauren slim fit. Love the fit, love the length. Love the quality.

Lacoste polos are too short for me. Also, they're very soft and fragile. Mine got all warped after a single wash.
Will not buy another. Wish they had something a bit more rigid.

As far as the cheap(er) ones go, I actually don't mind the AE/Hollister ones. As much as I dislike the brands, the build isn't bad for what you pay. I just can't stand H&M's quality.

^The Mr. liked those too because it reminds him of his underarmour work out shirts. The material is super lightweight and breathable
