Customer Reviews

Vanity sizing be cray

Don't get me wrong: I love Bonobos. But sometimes the vanity sizing is a little ludicrous. The "small" "slim" Belmont polo I ordered supposedly fits a 36-37" chest according to the fit chart, but the garment I received has a 43" chest (pit-to-pit x2) and a 30" total length. I ordered it in an effort to replace a purple Bonobos polo I bought about 3 years ago; that one's a small Regular fit, but it's 2" narrower in the chest and 2" shorter in the length than the new "slim" one, plus the armholes are almost a full inch higher. Granted, having washed and dried it may have shrunk it a little, but not enough to justify the difference. The color of the new polo is great (very slightly darker & more saturated than it appears in the product pic) and the material is soft and thick. Nonetheless, it's depressing how difficult it is to find an actual slim fit these days, even from Bonobos. For reference, I'm 5'11" and 170 lbs—not even slim, just non-obese and non-swole. If you're looking for an actual slim fit polo like Bonobos used to offer, you can find it for $10 more from Kent Wang (their Medium fits like the old Bonobos Small). Sorry for the screed, Bonobros & Bonobras; like I said, I'm often really happy with the quality and fit of Bonobos clothes, but it can be hit-or-miss, and sometimes I have to go down two sizes from the ostensible measurements; for instance, my Bonobos bull denim and cords, both marked for a 28" waist, have actual waists of almost 32". Maybe I'll try this polo in an XS and see how it goes.

Just right

I'm 5'10" (177 cm), and 155 lbs (70 kg), with a slim, athletic build. I bought a size S, and it's perfect. If you're 5'8" or 5'9", you may find this shirt too long, and if you're taller than 6', it may be too short for you. Depends on your style, I guess. It is a proper slim-fit shirt, which means it's a close-fitting all over, but not tight. Before I purchased the shirt, the sleeves were my main concern because I hate it when the sleeves on a polo are too long. Thankfully, they're not too long, and they're also not too short. Bonobos has managed to make the perfect polo!!
