Rated 4 out of 5 by NathanB Nice shirt, collar and placket could be better
I have 8 of these shirts - 6 solid colors and 2 striped. Be sure to get a size bigger than you would in the non-slim fit as these are running small this year. Also, they are not shrink-proof despite the special performance treatment boasted on the tag. Even on medium drier heat they shrink a little.
I find that the plackets on the plain colored shirts are rather floppy which causes an unappealing pucker when the top button is left open. The striped shirts seem to be better quality; one of them has a noticeably reinforced collar.
I also wish that BB would ditch the distracting logo and find another way to distinguish their shirts. For example, their dress shirts have the signature shirring on the cuffs which nobody else has. This would keep the polos classier than RL and others.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Patagonia9 Slim Fit Novelty Polo
I have one medium slim fit and one medium regular fit polo from about 3 years ago. The regular medium is a little wide for me. The medium slim fit was great for me. I went to a couple physical stores to try to buy more slim fit novelty polos, but all they had were the regular fit shirts. I ended up ordering online, and the fit of the three medium slim fits I ordered is not the same as the medium slim fit I bought 3 years ago. The sleeves were shorter and tighter. There was less room in the chest also. I tried on the regular medium fit at a store, and I would need to gain 50lbs for it to fit. So the regular medium I tried on in a store recently is bigger than the regular medium I have from 3 years ago. So I went for the medium slim fit, but they are too small. I guess I would need a large slim fit, but I'm not willing to take the risk of ordering that size just to find out. The consistency of the sizing is off. There needs to be a middle ground between the regular medium and medium slim fit. Many other brands offer only one fit in each size, and the fit is a good compromise that fits me fine.

I'm 5'10 and an athletic 180. I have a handful of BB polos in M, standard sizing. I thought they fit me pretty well, but I decided to try switching to a Slim Fit in L. Much, much better. The fit is just perfect under my arms. It offers that lean, tucked in look even when you leave the shirt untucked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KBinNC Very Nice, Watch the Length
I wear a 17/34 Extra Slim Fit dress shirt,. I ordered 3 of these polos in Large Slim Fit. I tried one, it fit ok but was too short after one washing / drying per instructions. I sent all 3 back using the self-service label from BB and asked for XL Slim Fit. They turned it around in about a week, no questions asked, and the XL Slim Fits are perfect. Great service, nice shirts, just be careful of the length if you have a long body.

I have had this polo for a little while. It has held up to washing and hasn't changed in fit at all. It is longer and nice for tucking in and looking nice.

I am tall and slim (6'2" and 175 lbs), and I've had a difficult time finding a polo that doesn't balloon around my midsection.
I ordered three polos in medium and was absolutely ecstatic. The fit was perfect, the colors were bold and beautiful, and the fabric felt high-quality. I liked the shirts so much, in fact, that I turned around and ordered three more!

I'm 5'9" 185lb 33" waist and muscular build, purchased Medium slim fits and they fit absolutely perfect. Unlike other brands, not too tight in the arms or back, and good fit at the waist. Wish they were slightly more narrow at the waist, but overall great fit. Fabric feels great too!

I had the luxury of stopping by a brick and mortar Brooks Brothers before purchasing these (most of my purchases are done online due to my distance from a BB store). While I personally love the fit my word of caution would be this: your size is likely different than you might imagine.
For instance in a traditional fit BB polo I am a Small. However the traditional fit is a bit too baggy in the mid-section so I figured I would be a small in the Slim Fit as well. It turns out though that slim fit small is too snug in the mid-section so I was forced to go up a size.
In the end Medium works great for me since it allows for a full range of motion without the bagginess around the mid-section.
