Golden Fleece® Slim Fit Performance Polo
Not Slim Fit
If you are tall and thin, these are not the slim fit shirts for you. I'm 6'1'' 150lbs, and this shirt is way too baggy. Tried this shirt in a medium. The length is too short for me, granted it's a medium, but I was expecting the width to be much more fitted. If looking for a true slim fit, try other options. Fabric has a nice feel, and the quality is there, just not the fit.

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.

Best deep blue color shirt I have ever owned. Get lots of compliments on it. The slim fit version works great for me - not so much material in the mid section.

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.
