Size S is a good fit for a 6 foot 155 pounder.
Dude, where do you put all your weight? I am just an inch shorter, and about 3 pounds lighter, and the medium stretches across my chest and is fitted in my arms and shoulders (I posted a picture of myself wearing the "Star" tee). I have reasonably muscular legs as well... The scale I use has recently been calibrated too, AFAIK.
I am mystified... There are all these dudes on this forum with pretty much the same measurements as mine, and I wear a full size larger than they do... And it's not like my drop is so much bigger than you guys. I have a 40 chest and 31 waist, which seems to be pretty standard around here.
To answer the origninal question, I wash the shirts in the machine on cold (as with all my laundry) and dry it on high. No shrinkage whatsoever (have compared with unwashed samples).
