    They run slightly smaller than the Federer French Open Polo through the shoulders, but they are about the same through the midsection. I would suggest going a size up if you have bigger shoulders and arms.

    Also, the Nike Manhattan Polos run much smaller than both. I would say that they are sized incorrectly. A large is a medium and an XL is a large.

    Hopes this helps, I am returning mine for different sizes.

    Thanks for this, it is appreciated. I thought the FO polo was running a little small so if the London polo is even smaller then I will size up.
    no, he wore a different style.

    These polo's are suppose to fit tighter, especially in the shoulders and arms. They are retro slim fit to appeal to us young guys who like that. Federer is in to fashion and knows baggy cloths are out.

    I like the slimmer fit too, especially through the midsection, but these are a little tighter in the shoulders and arms. The FO Polo's were perfect in terms of fit. I guess if you shoulders and arms aren't very muscular they would probably work great.

    The Manhattan Polos are more than just tight. They are just small!

    Anyways, I wasn't trying to comment on fashion, just to let people know how the clothes are fitting, since Nike is a little schizophrenic with its fits these days.

    Hmmm interesting, I have the FO polo's and also agree that they are a perfect fit, better than the AO polo's I have, which are a tad short. I might have to wait and try these new polo's on at my shop before I buy a bunch of them.

    okay, i tried on the London polo, the AO Blue polo, and the Grape US Open polo all at the same time today at Niketown Atl.

    I wear a small, so the slimmer fit was a great idea to me.

    The AO small is a "bit tight", and slightly embarassing, but I can work it well enough. The sz medium is better.

    As for the grape/purple Us Open: a AO Medium=sz small grape Us Open.

    The tightest of all was the sz small London white polo. Ridiculously tight and easily see through nips (very embarassing!)

    I write this b/c I almost bought a grape and London white polo both sz small thinking they would be the same size since they are all featured on the same webpage. Do Not be fooled!

    Recap on the Federer sz smalls:
    white london polo-tightest
    blue AO polo - kinda tight
    grape polo - well fitting tight (just loose enough not to show your nips)

    And no, I didn't get a chance to try on the Manhattans but they are definately a very trim cut.
