    Long-sleeved polo shirts: which makes?

    Anybody out there wear long sleeve polos?

    I'm after one or two to wear under a jacket for a semi-casual look, but it's not something I've worn before and a quick scan through the local high-street shops has only uncovered some really hideous Ralph Lauren purple/green/orange monstrosities so I'm looking online: but a quick pointer at where to start (which shops, which brands) would be useful.

    The Lands End piqué polo is the kind of thing I'm looking for: worth a punt?

    Cheers. The AllSaints long-sleeve polo looks alright in the photo - do you know how it fits? Snug, short, long? Does the collar have enough shape to lie flat under a jacket collar?

    They fit slim and quite long in the body

    You could iron the collar down or w/e

    Hmm, long and slim doesn't exactly match my body shape but I'll take a look next time I'm down at Meadowhall where my nearest allsaints is.

    If you can get past the ramskull their merino ones are great. I think the casual sandringham may have had its day now.
    Also try the Sunspel ones particularly the mesh Rivieras. Like their tees they fit great. I was slightly put off by the collar of the short sleeved polo and don't exactly have Bond's physique, but with long sleeves I like em.

    I don't really like the one in the OP. Especially under a jacket. I'd go with short sleeved if you're wearing it under something most of the time.

    How much are you looking to spend? Because yeah Sunspel mesh are nice polos.

    I recently got one of these and it's sexy as hell.

    I would also reccomend going for a Ralph Lauren one in slim fit but if you don't like the branding then Reiss have a couple of them in navy and grey which should be pretty good

    The sunspels look nice but there's no way I can spend that much on any kind of shirt, let alone a casual one. I'll wait for their sale perhaps.

    You can get a decent polo from Reiss, yeah for £40.

    Have you tried eBay?
