Ralph Lauren fit guide – shirt sizes and fits available

Ralph Lauren have four different cuts of shirts

  • Polo – Classic Fit – the most generous Ralph Lauren Polo cut. This is cut straight, with no taper from the chest to the waist.
  • Polo – Slim Fit – a narrower cut, with a two inch taper from the chest to the waist. Compared to the Standard Fit, the Polo Slim Fit is one inch narrower through the chest and three inches narrower through the waist.
  • Purple Label Standard Fit – has a more tapered fit than the Polo Standard Fit. I have not measured these shirts yet, so do not have detailed size information on these shirts.
  • Purple Label Tailored Fit – cut narrower than the Purple Label Standard Fit. I have not measured these shirts yet, so do not have detailed size information on these shirts.


The tables below give detailed garment measurements and a shirt fit guide, based on my measurements of actual Ralph Lauren Polo shirts. All measurements are inches.

When comparing the shirt measurements and your body measurements remember:

  • For the chest the shirt circumference should be six inches larger than the body measurement for a comfortable fit. Four inches for a tighter fit.
  • For the waist the shirt circumference should be four inches larger than the body measurement for a comfortable fit. Three inches for a tighter fit.
