Post Practice Polo
These are the most expensive shirts I have ever bought - I almost have no business purchasing them but I have been in search of the 'perfect' polo for a long time and wear them as my daily casual shirt. After seeing my colleague wearing one at work and researching them online, I purchased one in all five (at the time) colors. I've never heard of lululemon until speaking with my colleague but now they are on my radar.
The primary issue with other polos is that their collar does not retain its shape and sloppily flails out flat. This shirt resolves that completely using hidden collar buttons and a different, shape-retaining fabric on the collar and front button lining. After washing and drying, the collar comes out of the dryer crisp, retaining its original shape - absolutely no collar flailing.
I also love how the different colored/fabric collars contrasts or compliments the various shirt fabrics.
The primary shirt material feels great - it's extremely soft, felixble and somewhat elastic but it does not shine like all the performance polos available - I'm not a fan of the fabrics used by Nike/UA - the more natural cotton based fabrics such as that used in this shirt look nicer for daily wear. The fabric is on the thinner side so it remains cool on hot days.
The primary fabric also comes out of the dryer 100% wrinkle free - sometimes I have to throw them in alone for an additional 15 minutes as a full dryer can hinder the release of wrinkles.
Follow the size chart for fit - it was spot on - actually measure yourself - do not use measurements based off other garment sizes. I am 5'10" and on the thin side - 40" chest, 32" waist - the medium fits perfectly. These shirts are more fitted than your typical polo - think American Giant hoody if you have one of those. I usually wear a small in st. johns bay/ue/nike as their mediums were sized to fit larger sizes over a longer range. The lululemon medium, again, is perfect - not really loose, not tight, fair lengthed sleeves - however, there is still room for growth.
I highly suggest these - they are expensive but for the most part worth it compared to other products out there. Although - I won't be purchasing another polo for another 5 years now but thats okay.
Note: The heathered, light gray looks much nicer in person than online. The heathered black, olive and ink/navy color look great.

Great Shirt.. Never in stock
I own 3 of these and they are an incredible product. They hold shape, form to you perfectly, and breath very well.
My Issue is they NEVER have stock in the L or XL sizes. I have stopped in Columbus, Buffalo and Toronto over the past few weeks and every store was out.
I decided to just order online.
Amazing the online store have only S and M! How can you run a business and not have stock for so long in a key product?
If you want to be a men's go to line you NEED to have stock of our items.
You are losing customers daily....

Can't find one flaw!
This is a great fitting and feeling shirt. Looks great, wears great and while some polo's on the past were a little short in the body - this shirt has it all! I hated to have to take it off! Not one complaint - everything about this shirt is great!

well fitted shirt
I use this shirt to go to work. I like the breathability of the fabric and fit. I have been completed in how the shirt fits with my contours.
