    I wear a 3 for Lacoste polos. They are a tad big but they get the job done.
    I tried Calvin Klein small but they are BIG on me.
    Extra Small at American Eagle is okay. But I hate shopping at that store and I think the clothes look tacky besides a basic plain-white polo.
    I have tried some of the various International/"Sport" companies at Macy's but nothing has really intrigued me.

    I am pretty small I guess. 5'7" and between 130-135 pounds.

    I play golf at the country club. And I am a white collar professional type. I am very much a plain polo and khakis kind of person, but form-fitting. I can't stand baggy clothes.

    What should I do for clothes? Brand/store to shop in? I feel like I am aging out of the Lacoste market (since I stuck with Hollister until I turned 22 years old) so I am trying to move on before it is too late and pathetic.

    I didn't make the silly watch/necklace purchase I was mulling over (in the "post before you make a dumb purchase" thread) so I have some money to spend for nice clothes this week.

    I was in a fraternity in college and as a result of that: I shudder whenever I see the RL polo. :wtcd:

    I've found that rugby polo stuff fits better than rl stuff for the most part. Not sure if your distaste for polo extends to that line as well though...

    Oh, and I have a couple jcrew polos my ex bought for me. The fit is pretty good on those and they get relatively cheap if/when they are on sale.

    I will definitely check this out. Thanks!

    I know where one of those is located. I will wander in there next time I am out.

    I have a bow-tie from the Rugby store :o

    My only worry is aging out of the market range ... the line seemed like American Eagle, but just for private school kids.

    JCrew is an interesting choice. I have never been in the store or tried on any of their clothing. I am kind of curious to check it out now

    Jcrew is boss solely for the fact that their sales prices are ridiculously low. Even lower if you have a jcrew outlet by you or you're a student (outlets don't allow the student discount though).

    The polos my ex bought at full price were around $40 each, saw them on sale at an outlet by my parent's house for $11.

    They are one of those stores (like Banana Republic :mad: ) that doesn't have a single XS in store to even try on for fit? :(

    I'm glad I made this thread. Otherwise I never would have heard of these companies.

    When I shop I always have a short list of what I need and from which store; I go in and purchase, then leave. I never look around :o
