I received some very nice polo shirts for Father's Day but they are a little big on me. They are a large and a medium is too tight.


Has anyone had a knit polo shirt tailored? Is this something any tailor can do and does anyone have any idea what the cost would be? I am in a suburb of Chicago.


Thanks.

What the hell kind of reply is that?

If you don't like polo shirts, fine, but why did you feel the need to reply?

I'm buying you this for your birthday.

Benjamin - Thanks for the helpful reply. I suspect the pattern would be an issue. It is just horizontal stripes but I could see where that would be a problem.

They are wide in the midsection and a bit large in the arms but from the cost and pattern issue I think I will just let them be.

 

Thanks again.

Chris

If you have a sewing machine available, you could try what's called the "Pinch and Pin" method. Watch the first 90 seconds of this video to see it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pf3OxmanTig

 

They demonstrate on a button-up shirt, but I don't see any reason you couldn't do it on a polo shirt as well. The only tricky part would be how to handle the notches at the sides of most polo shirts (I would probably not worry about them and just sew straight down).

I'm just philosophically opposed to polo shirts.

 

I know. I've seen the other threads. I'm beginning to think you must have had an emotionally scarring experience involving polo shirts as a child.
