Which ones? I have a bunch of performance long sleeve button ups from VV but no short sleeve golf polos.  Needing some for this year ( pulling the ‘ol double duty work/golf shirt).  Peter Millar summer collection seem pretty nice as well. I’m a bigger dude.  250lbs and wear a XL in the VV performance long sleeves. I guess fit will be a big determining factor.  Without a sale they are the same price.

Just getting some feedback from anyone with either one of these.

I would go Peter Millar if I were you. The Vineyard Vine collars will break down a lot quicker than they should and youíll end up getting little ripples in the collars after multiple washes. Never have those problems with the PM polos. And the VV fabric is just a tad thicker than the PM is which is a bit of a deal breaker when itís over 90 out. I have plenty of both and never wear the VV ones.

Here's the failsafe rule:

Over 30 =  Peter Millar
Under 30  = Vineyard Vines


Guys over 30 wearing Vineyard Vines look like they're wearing their kid's Garanimals.
Guys under 30 wearing Peter Millar look like they're trying to dress like their grandfather.

Love VV regular polos, their performance stuff not so much
Have had issues with runs/snags/whatever you want to call it way too easily
I have not had that issue with Millar stuff for what its worth

I’ve got a bunch of each (34 if age matters, ha). Love both, but if you had to put a gun to my head, I’d say PM summer comfort.  I actually size down on both.

For those that have Peter Miller polos - I have hear that they run big. I wear a Large in most every polo - Nike, Ralph Lauren, Patagonia, etc. would a Large in PM be too big? I dont want sleeves around my elbows but also donít want a compression top either.

I own both. I own enough of both to have worn and washed them multiple times. Both hold up fine, no issues on my end. Whether itís work or the course. I like PM a bit better but simply due to style and design, nothing else. Both are great brands and produce great products. I only buy sale price though, $90 for a polo is nuts.

If you wear a large in most the Peter Millar Summer Comfort or E4 you should be a medium. You probably will be a large in their cotton shirt if you get any of those.

I like both but do find both run a little big with PM running the biggest.  I am just over 40 for reference so not sure where I fit into the above:)

If you can find the Peter Millar 'Tour Fit' polos, they fit much better, IMO.
A more modern cut in the sleeves and a slightly tapered body.  Very similar to what you'd find in the cuts of RLX, Greyson, Matte Grey, etc.

PM is top notch.  and the only brand I'm a medium in!  (i'm a large in all other brands, golf or not golf)

Only issue, like all brands, is the collars often roll up, so i typically only buy the collars that are the same material as the shirt, not the polyester material...if that makes any sense.  Not a PM issue though

Iím 43 and wear both. PM is about a perfect fit for me. VV in the same size is actually a bit loose. Quality is good on both, but PM seems to have a bit more luxury feel to it, while VV is a bit more casual.

Now see, I'm 55 and guess what.  I wear whatever the F I want to wear!!  :-)    PM and VV are both nice shirts.  I have one VV shirt that faded pretty quickly.   I like the fit of both but probably go PM as my fave.   Also like the FJ shirts.

On the whole, I like the cut of VV better than  most PM that I've owned. I have a performance material PM and the sleeves hit my elbows. VV has a little shorter sleeve.

Now...I do have a PM Seaside Wash that is perfect. Mosty cotton (which I like better than performance), short cut sleeves, and super breathable. Perfect shirt.
