The perfect polo shirt for shorter men.
  • Made from 100% organic pique cotton
  • Designed in London. Manufactured in Portugal
  • Mother-of-pearl buttons
  • 180 gsm (light weight)
  • Cut for men between 5'4 and 5'9 in height

The Lightweight Polo is the ideal choice if you're looking for a sharp, collared look. 

We've picked a slightly lighter cotton. It's more flexible and comfortable, especially on hot days. And the buttons are a little bit special, with a mother-of-pearl effect and subtle lettering. 

 Also available as a multipack with £11 off.

Our models: Vlad (Black) is 5'7 and wears a Small. Archie (Navy/Green) is 5'8 and wears a Large.

    Polo - Rightweight (& size)

    I'm 5' 8" and have a bit of a dad bod, so have to size everything up which mean most clothing i buy is too long in the body and the arms. Its not a great look.

    I found Ruler of London by accident and decided to take the plunge and buy the polo and a couple of sweat shirts.

    I've been really pleased with the product - great quality and above all a great fit. No need for alterations. Th 7% reduction in length is spot on.

    I've ordered a few of the crew neck T's. The Ruler team also advise they've got other items coming on line.

    I'll be ordering some more thats for sure.

    Finally a polo shirt that fits nicely!

    I used to always be disappointed when buying polo shirts or t-shirts because they would be too long for me.

    So, finally, I can say that I bought a polo shirt that actually fits nicely and that doesn't reach up to my knees!

    Great Shirt!

    The materials of the shirt are comfortable and don’t cause any agitation, was great even in the high heat!
