sale polo shirts Why does Polo Ralph Lauren run small for a lot of things
I have noticed for a lot of things, Polo Ralph Lauren tends to run small. Polo Assn, and even Ralph Lauren’s own lower cost Chaps brand. For most clothing I am generally a size XXL, however, for some Polo Ralph Lauren clothing I often have to buy a size 2XB from the Big Tall section.
For what particular reason is this? Is this common among designer brands? Tommy Hilfiger seems to fit me just fine, not sure about Calvin Klein.
You learn a lot by trying on clothes at the Goodwill! I came home with a Ralph Lauren tee, that seemed as if it had never been worn. It was sized XL, which is usually my size in better ready to wear. Lauren has many different brands; this is a Lauren Sport, I believe. It is skimpy, the material is barely good, and it fits close to the body. I am wearing it under a woven shirt this winter.
I have had Lauren Ralph Lauren department store brand clothes, but I was buying these when wore plus sizes. I loved the brand then. I have checked into the same brand in plus sizes at my local Macy’s. 1X is really too big, but I bought a chambray shirt in that size anyway. It has faded in the wash, and of course the sleeves are short. And the shirt is really too big. But I am not impressed with the quality of the cloth. At the same time I bought a similiar shirt from Lands End, and it is superior to the Lauren shirt in every way.
Every brand fits differently. I’ve found the more generous fits in some catalog clothes. If I were to try to buy from Target, I’d have to go up one size, which is pretty hard if you normally wear XL. But some brands do cut their clothes to be trimmer and shorter. I know it is maddening.
