    Hi everyone,

    I am planning to order some sweaters from brooksbrothers.com but are wondering about sizing. I am wearing 15" 34 arm length in their Extra slim fit shirts. I am thinking Small or Medium but can't decide. Please help me!

    I am 15" 33 arms, 38 chest, 32 waist, 5"9', 155 pounds. I wear their size small v-neck sweater and the arm length is perfect and fit around my torso is perfect but it ends is a little short at my waist (by about 1 inch). With a 34" arm length I'm going to assume your torso is taller too, in which case you might have some issues.

    Thank you, do you know how RL sweaters are in comparison? Small in RL classic fit fits me well.
