The measurements on the site are standard, yes there might be slight variation but you are acting like the measurements are way off. With the exception of the one shirt being too long in the sleeves i dont think anything has been that far from off.
So you should have to order two of every item just to be safe? The whole point of online shopping is convenience and accessibility. Inconsistent sizing eliminates the convenient aspect since I have to then go to the post office with every order (even if only 1/4 of orders require it, that's still a hassle), in turn creating hesitant buyers. As others have said, there are plenty of retailers to buy from so you can't really fault customers that go elsewhere due to sizing inconsistencies. It's much easier to just buy from a retailer where you know what to expect.
That said, I haven't had issues with TS but only own 2 items of theirs. Almost bought the duck camp pants and am glad I didn't (also curious why they put the old size chart back up). If I had, and they later admitted to knowing the whole batch ran small and didn't say anything, then I'd likely not return.
