I guess it comes down to personal preference and how much layering you plan to do, but I'd suggest going with your regular size.

Well, imho and dealing specifically with xs, this seasons andover compared to other FW's fit pretty much the same in the shoulders, a bit roomier in the chest, sleeves, body and considerably shorter in the sleeves and body length, a bit weird even, I'll try to take some pics but when I line it up to other fw andovers the sleeves area about 5/8" to 7/8" shorter and the body more like 1.25" to 1.75"shorter, really weird since the top buttons line up ok but the rest is off, chest and body is around 3/8" to 5/8" wider across too, sleeve width difference might be considered negligible but I can certainly feel it in the biceps.

180 lbs sounds a bit hefty for 5'7" so fit will depend if you're a muscular or pear shape frame,,, if muscular than it should be good in the chest/shoulders but the sleeves on a L might be a bit long for 5'7" (unless you have longer arms), the body length should be cool though since it appears to be a cropped cut.Edited by canstyleace - 1/29/13 at 3:38pm
