I really like the look of the Puma golf shirts, well the solid color ones, not so crazy about some of the others. I have tried on several and just can't seem to get any that fit properly. I even tried their tech polo and the medium fits well in the torso but is too small in the shoulders/chest. The Larger is better up top but is a tent through the torso. To contrast, I wear a L in Travis Mathew and it fits awesome for the most part. I wear a 40-42 jacket and a 34-35 waist and am not skinny or muscular. Solid is how i would describe myself.

anyone else with the same problem?

I agree, I like the general style associated with Puma. I think they would do well with a more tailored fit like Adidas is doing with some of their lines. Have you ever seen department stores that have the shirts on the manequin's, look at the back of the shirt, they always have them pinned together so they fit the waist nice and tight. I have a athletic body type, and always have to buy XL shirts to accomodate my shoulders, in some brands and styles, that leaves the waist section looking like a deflated balloon. My biggest issue with Puma is the material that they use. I much prefer the Adidas or Nike Dri Fit material.

It's funny though as they cater to a younger crowd. I could wear a med in some Travis mathew shirts but mostly lg. going from med to lg in puma is like going up 2 sizes

I wear Puma and I absolutely love the colors, styles and fit.  Certain shirts have different cuts and fits from Puma, it's all about finding one that is right for you if you troy love the brand.  Adidas, TM are great shirts too so you will not go wrong with any of them!

I agree with the Puma sizing.  It's all over the shop.  I wear a medium in the shirts but a large in the jumpers/zip-ups.  No real consistency.  The styling is great but they need to work on their fits some more.

Puma shirts have ridiculously tight sleeves.

I literally have the same problem you do, but I think I'm a little taller. I wear a 42 L in jackets typically, 33-34 in waist. Mediums are too tight on the shoulders and too short. Larges are tents but are long enough.

Went from Adidas to Puma and prefer the fit of the puma stuff greatly over the adidas.  The shorts kind of run randomly where the plaid are cut a little different than the solid shorts.  Same with the shirts, but nothing too bad.

Don't like the fit of their coats tho as they seem to be too tight in the shoulders and good in the body, like the light long sleeve shirts for jackets if needed.  Anything heavier needed than that just throw on some under armour.

New Puma stuff coming out looks good but don't like their new shoes have seen so far.....whats wrong with the limiteds they had before?
