Great "athletic" fitting polo.
Banded sleeve cut at just the right length to hit mid-arm emphasizes athletic arms w/o going overboard. Subtle "B" and green contrast stitching throughout indicates the quality construction in this shirt.
I don't like my polos too long or with too much fabric in the waist, and this one is just right to leave untucked w/o hanging too low.
The collar is a great size - neither too small or large.
I liked this one so much I bought the black and white polos too.
Not For Me
Review of: Navy Polo [ATHLETIC FIT] - Medium
Positives: the shoulders, arm hole opening, sleeve length and chest area of this shirt are perfect.
Negatives: I am 6'3" so this shirt is WAY TOO SHORT. From the seam of right under the Bonobos logo tag in the neck to the bottom of the shirt, it measures 27-1/4 inches (unwashed, worn once for fitting). Also, it is advertised as an athletic fit shirt but it is still too boxy for me; I have a 8-inch difference from chest to waist measurement. The chest area is not too snug and not too loose, perfect, but considering its short length before washing, I wonder how much more it will shrink in the washer and dryer.
Move over RL and Lacoste!! This is so far my best athletic fit polo. The sleeve has a nice cut at just the right spot to show off your arms if your athletic and if your not they still fit right on w/o being to tight. The quality construction in this shirt is proven the moment you put it on. This polo is perfect for leaving untucked or if you want to class it up it stays tucked perfectly. With the summer heat im able to wear this without sweating to death and it feels so great!! Buy it and you wont regret it. After a few washes it fits like your best polo.
This is a great fitting polo! Perfect weight, fits fantastic through the arms, chest; just the right amount of "fitted" feel. I agree with the two 'Awesome' reviews from above and second their comments. I hope more colors become available in the dark range because I will absolutely be ordering more of these and replacing my older RLs and Lacoste polos.
This is the best fitting polo I've ever owned. I actually threw out all my other polos because they felt floppy and baggy compared to this one. I'm not a fan of shirts with branding so was a little worried that the "B" would be obnoxious, but in this case I think it works by adding a little bit of flair and contrast to the collar.
not an athletic/slim fit around the abdomen
I am 6.3, pants 33x34, athletic. Bought a size L its perfect on the neck, shoulders, chest and arms but it is too loose around the abdomen and waist, really boxy. The way it is , it's long enough but if it shrinks(even a little bit), I won't be able to use it because it will be too short. Its too boxy for how I like my polos.
Great warm weather polo
Color, cut and feel of this polo is excellent. Really nice for hot summer weather. You may want to order down a size if you like a trimmer fit. I am 6'1", 200 pounds and got the XL -- a little looser fit than I expected given the athletic cut.
I wear a lot of polo shirts, and this one blows my others out of the water. I'm 6' exactly and find the length to be perfect, and it's not boxy on my average-build frame. Material is lightweight, but has held up to some daily abuse over the last week. I am buying the white version of this polo when I get a chance.
Hands down, best polo ever
by Duncan T.M.
Title says it all, this is the best polo I have ever bought. The cut of this shirt is absolutely perfect and I can't speak more highly about the quality of not only this shirt but all Bonobos products. It fits perfectly in the arms, chest and back - which have all been problems for me since I played college football and college lacrosse. I have a ton of Polo & Lacoste shirts and they don't fit that great because of this, Polo's Custom Fit is entirely too slim and the classic is too boxy for my frame. I started off loving their pants/shorts and now I love their shirts as well!
Bring it back!
This polo is fantastic. The cut is much less baggy than most polos. Please get it back in stock! I want to own it in more colors.
