Did you find yourself sizing up?

No. Sizing down, if anything. In most brands I’m an XL (my PRL polos are XL custom fit) and this is an L. I find that the fabric stretches during the day resulting in a looser fit by the afternoon, which is shown here, than when I first put it on and my wife looks askance at me as though I’m not dressing my age. 

I actually own both L and XL in these polos. For casual wear I go with the L and for tennis I wear the XL (the “DRY” fabric is great for tennis) for the looser fit and greater range of motion.

Not especially interesting, but I do like the cutaway collars on the Uniqlo polos, and the length is great also.

Haberdashboard, is more than just a website with a catchy name. It’s a new, innovative way to search for menswear on eBay. 

Over the last several months, I noticed an increasing number of “hits” on my web traffic reports from a site I never heard of before. I followed the links a few times, but never really investigated what it was. A few weeks ago, a fellow Styleforum member introduced himself as the guy who runs the site. I found his tumblr and began following it, but it wasn’t until last night that I really went to Haberdashboard.com and actually spent some time testing it out. 

While the site may appear a little sparse at first glance, it is really quite clever. Upon arrival, you are greeted by a landing page with an automatically updated galley of recently listed popular menswear items. The banner at the top of the page provides links to search by category (e.g., shoes, outerwear, suits, etc.) The star of the show is the “advanced search” link, which takes you to an all-inclusive search engine (pictured above). Here you input all of your sizing information at one time and search accordingly, narrowing by keyword, price range, and listing format. I went back and forth to the site a few times today and the advanced search remembered all of my size info, nice! The search results are arranged in gallery style with nice large photos.
