Since I'm actually considering buying two of their 140's, I fired off an email about chest and waist sizes. Here's what I got: ***** Thanks for your email the only shrinkage that will occur will be on the collar and sleeve. Due to the construction of the shirt we will allow half an inch shrinkage on both after washing unless it is washed over 40 degrees. The chest and waist measurements for a 16"collar 36" sleeve are as follows - Chest 44" Waist 42" Hip 43" I hope this helps - Many thanks ***** I assume that the chest & waist measurements are for the wearer, not the shirt, but have fired off a clarifying email to find out. It sounds like the TM Lewins aren't that tapered, but should be better than a brooks brothers. I'm about a 42/43 (with the shoulders of a person with a 44 inch chest), but right now have a 35 inch waist. Does it seem like this is going to be a tent around the midsection?
