What this article covers:

Classic Fit Polo Shirts vs. TAILORED ATHLETE Polo Shirts

Most retailers donā€™t cater to bodies that donā€™t bring in the most revenue. This means muscular men are often left squeezing themselves into clothes not designed for them. Either the clothes are too small or you have to size up and risk the unflattering boxy silhouettes available for larger bodies.

You may ask what aboutĀ classic fit vs slim fit polo shirts? The truth is that while slim-fit polos may give you the silhouette you are after, they simply wonā€™t give you the freedom of movement that you need. Classic fits will be too baggy and slim fits will be too tight.

Finding the Perfect Polo Shirt for Your Body Type

TheĀ best-fitting menā€™s polo shirts are tapered to create a flattering silhouette while providing space for muscular frames. Itā€™s difficult to know exactly what to look for when choosing polo shirts, so keep these factors in mind:

  • The sleeves. Raglan-cut sleeves are much more flattering on muscular arms than straight-cut sleeves.
  • The fabric. All our clothes are created with 4-way stretch, moisture-wicking fabric to keep you comfortable and dry all day, even in Summer.
  • The shape. Most polo shirts are straight-cut to suit the majority of body types. Unfortunately, this means they arenā€™t truly flattering on any body type. Our True Muscle Fit is tapered in all the right places to create the ideal silhouette.

When it comes toĀ how a polo shirt should fit your body, you are looking for stylish comfort. You shouldnā€™t feel squeezed in, and the clothes shouldnā€™t hang off your body. A well-fitting polo shirt will flatter the body you work so hard on.
