I'm 6 feet 165 lbs and I'm a small to medium. You probably want a small.

Crap! i already bought medium sizes!!! you guys think they will LOOK to big on me?? maybe if i wash it a couple times it would shrink?? ohh noo.


I mean, i usually wear banana republic fitted tee shirts size MEDIUM and they fit fine. I was looking at the measurements and they looked similar. Gosh, Hopefully they FIT okay atleast...

I'm 6'2" 155 or so and Medium fits me fine. I have pretty broad shoulders but a slim waistline. The length is great, falls right where it should. If anything, they might run a little long on you, but I'd say the rest of the fit would be okay.

I wouldn't sweat it bro, you have almost the exact measurements as me and the medium fits me well and snug. We'll see though - if anything they might be a little long but that can be fixed in several ways.

I have to add that I wear my tees like a second layer of skin. Might not be the look you wanted.

If you are "buff" you should not wear tight shirts. It will look like you're trying to show off. Medium is fine. I'm 6'0 175 and medium is good on me.

I'll sign off on this as well. I'm 5'11" and 152 lbs, most of the upper body weight in my shoulders and chest (I have a 30-31 true waist, 39-40 chest) and wear smalls in the thermals (because I want them skin tight under a tee) and mediums in everything else, and the sizing is pretty much dead on for me. Unless you are built like Brad Pitt (i.e. cut but not beefy, angular frame, with a big wingspan and long limbs generally) you are going to end up looking like a gay clubber, and not even gay guys generally want this look.

I'm 6 foot and 160 and medium is on the tight side of what I feel comfortable wearing. I'm sure you picked the right size.

No one hazed about the search feature?

For the last time, 6'/160lbs = medium. Familyman's dead on. The problem with small is while it's more fitting, it'll come up to your navel if it shrinks at all or look at it funny.

BTW, in the pics I posted in my RRL Fit thread I'm wearing a size small. so you get the idea.

Good advice, I wish most of Chelsea knew this.
