The cotton versions fit slightly larger than the wool versions, especially around the shoulders. It does run fairly close to true size. However, I fit into a medium (wool versions of the) Bedford and Engineer pretty well, but with some space in the torso (all Engineered Garments pieces are meant to take layering - see the website as an example), but fitted in the shoulders and with little space in the arms, and I am 5'11" and 150 lbs (+/- 2 lbs depending on time of day/hydration levels). How the jackets will fit you depends a lot on your body shape, which is not really adequately described by just you height and weight. For reference, this years Engineer jacket fit me perfectly through the shoulders, with some extra space (deliberate) through the torso, and I have a 39 chest and a (true) 30 inch waist (which means that a 30 waist pair of jeans using hangs low on my hips). See pics in What are you wearing to see.) I tried on the smalls, but they were uncomfortably tight in the shoulders.
