If you’ve been poring over fashion interviews this past week—and if you haven’t, we forgive you—you may have come across the following gem from Michael Bastian:

Take a polo shirt: the sleeves should hit right above the bicep—that makes your arm look amazing. It’s not a big change, but it’s slightly different than what you’re used to.

We’ve been puzzling over exactly what that looks like for a few days now, but fortunately Unis was good enough to provide us with the perfect example, courtesy of their Spring 2010 lookbook. If you were wondering, this is exactly how your polo shirt should fit. In fact, you may want to keep this picture in your wallet next time you hit the shops.

In particular, notice that the gentleman in question doesn’t have gym-rat arms, and despite the Bastian connection, he doesn’t come off as particularly preppy. He’s just a well-dressed man who knows how a polo should fit.
