Update. After a couple wash/ line drys the shirt is considerably shorter in length. It fits perfectly but barely reaches my waistline. Fred Perry should really look into lengthening this line a tad... at least for the XXL
It fits fine and it seems to be quality. BUT... there is a massive difference between the Chinese made polos and the ones that are/were made in England. If you've never worn an original Fred Perry- then I guess you'd never know the difference.
But the fit, thickness and general quality of the English Fred Perrys are far superior. I have one particular Fred Perry (made in England) that I've worn and washed for nearly 14 years and it still looks and fits better than the Chinese polos I've bought within the last few years.
Again- you won't be disappointed with this shirt if you view it as just another polo. But do not expect original Fred Perry quality. It just seems like their polos are most affected by the transition from England to China.
Though both larges, the Fred Perry was inches shorter in all directions, Underneath the Fred Perry, I could see that the La Coste was at least 2 inches wider across the whole body of the shirt. The length was even more obvious. and maybe 3 inches shorter.
The sleeves were short and tighter as well. The La Coste Large fit me great. The Fred Perry was obviously short and tight. One wash would have made it unwearable, So I returned them both. I live in these types of shirts. This shirt was already
overpriced @ $85, but to get what amounts to a "medium" with about 15% less material than another brand, this really was not a fantastic purchase. I did get the shirts on a "lightning deal " though, so that really helped. I liked the material and style too.
If I had known they run small, I would have purchased a size up and this review would be completely different.
The medium fits perfectly if you want a more modern slim profile. Great quality, nice color, nice sale price for the tropical red.
A little laundry tip... in an effort to prevent shrinkage, I pulled it out of the dryer while it was still a little damp to finish drying on a WIDE hanger (to avoid shoulder bumps). My guy tried to repeat these steps but hung it immediately after pulling out of the washer and then put it on a regular sized hanger, which resulted in shoulder bumps due to the weight of the water in the fabric along with the too-small hanger. Frustrated, he threw it in with a regular load and dried completely in the dryer. Womp womp... it shrunk a little bit. It's not unwearable, but it's discernable.
So, if you can tolerate a bit of shrinkage, go ahead and launder with regular clothes and dry completely in the dryer. If it fits perfectly before washing, you may want to try my method.

it is smaller to the indicate size, and I think it is not originalPublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
It's just an unfortunate fact that a lot of Fred Perry's in different sizes fit differently. This runs larger than expected for the same exact size ordered in a different color. Read morePublished 5 months ago by tiny-vices-
