A Mod Icon - Best Polo Ever,
This review is from: Fred Perry Men's Twin-Tipped Polo Shirt (Apparel)
Fred Perry makes the highest quality, best fitting and most interestingly colored polos in the world. I have many from over ten years ago that still look great. The fit is only slightly trim, but not at all tight. FP does make a slim-fit version which may suit the younger folks better. If you are between sizes and feel you may have a bit of a paunch I would size up then. Otherwise most will be satisfied with their normal size. The piqué fabric is a bit heftier than a (better/best) Ralph Lauren polo and much more than a Lacoste. If you live in a hot and humid area they may be a bit much during the peak of summer--they are from England. They also make a few lightweight versions each summer but not usually with the traditional, tipped collar and sleeve design. The construction and sewing are impeccable, comparable to other brands costing two to three times as much. The directions here say "hand wash" which I think is unnecessary. A cold and delicate cycle, machine wash will suffice. The collars are also more hefty than others which lends them their sartorial mod cred, along with the colored tipping.

I realize its been awhile since you gave this review, but I have a question... what do you mean by "better/best" in referring to the ralph lauren polo? in my experience with them, their quality has been hit or miss so I wonder if you mean how the fred perry compares to one of the better ralph laurens. I agree though, these are the best by far.

The brand might be from England but the shirts are made in China. Good review though.
