    I am looking at the Bobby sweater but noticed differences in the sizing.

    On the Bobby sweater, it says L - 43-46" chest - website
    But on other sources it says XL - 42 - 44" - some John Smedley lit

    So I'm not sure which one to believe? How has this fit you? I'm 6'2", 210 lbs (athletic) fit

    Curious, what is your suit size (US)? 40R? 42R? 42L?

    I'd say your size depends on how you want it to fit. Some people like their sweaters stuck to their bodies like a tight t-shirt. Others like looser fits. I believe the measurement quoted on John Smedley's website is the exact (unstretched) chest measurement. Go from there.

    I'm a 43, sometimes a 42 and sometimes a 44. 33-34" length coat jacket works for me. 19.25" shoulders fits perfect (maybe 19.5").
