    Hello,
    I'm currently around 168cm and recently bought an XS Men shirt from Nautica and the length seems to be a bit long. I have a few questions.
    1. wondering what the typical length of Men's XS shirts are and if a XS jumper of the same brand (e.g Lonsdale) has the same length and width as a shirt of the same brand (Lonsdale)
    2. what height are men's XS shirts targeted towards?

    There is no typical length across brands. You'll find that they very quite a bit. I would think a S would fine lengthwise for you in most brands.

    It varies widely. Very widely.

    I guess it's not impossible that they'd be the same length and width, but I definitely wouldn't assume this.

    XS heights. :) Seriously, it varies. You have to try it on and decide.

    If you can't try it on, don't buy. Or only buy if there's a really easy and inexpensive return policy in place.

    If you can try it on, and do try it on, and you're still not sure, it's 95% certain that it's too short. But hey, post pictures here let other people tell you that it's too short.
