    And what I'm describing is the desire to actually be a little bit closer to being "normal" weight? Not by fat or anything but perhaps muscle? Your second question was a bit more on target but still off. If you have trouble fitting into even other brands' clothing then why is it so difficult to try and maybe build some muscle and fit into a regular small?
    Hey, I'm Asian (Indian) and we are a small people. So be careful how you throw around a word like "normal." In India (as in China, Korea, Japan, and other countries there), an XS here is actually a size M there. No joke. I recently bought this coat from a Korean eBayer: http://tinyurl.com/4zuz2go . Scroll to the bottom to read their description of "Korean Size" and how it differs from "US Size." In fact, they don't even sell the equivalent of a US Large over there, since it would be considered XXL.

    They must have an American mannequin - the jackets are stretched over that thing! Good point, though. I'll also add that most European mall brands seem to fit about a size small compared to US. i.e.: here a medium is about a 40, there it is about a 38/39. I remember walking into a store and pulling a medium off the rack, and the sales girl told me I was crazy to fit into that size - and she was right.

    lol at morons trying to justify anorexic feminine figures as being 'normal males'. Go chug some protein and hit the gym.

    And who might you be referring to? PS @raptor - you'll note that people like this guy quoted are the kinds that love using blanket statements to make assumptions with no foundation. This is what happens when people get offended by being called "skinny" when they are too small for an XXS. If being too small for an XXS is regular than what does that make a medium? This forum must be full of some teenaged angst or something.

    Yeah, can we all just accept that people come in different shapes and sizes and call it a day?

    I don't understand why this thread has turned into a bunch of body snarking comments.

    +1 million.

    It's fine to give some guidance on LEC sizing to help people decide what to order. Why does it have turn into attacks on people?

    I'll post a fit pic. That way I can decide once and for all whether I'll keep the shirts or not.

    Would somebody measure the shoulders (across top back) of a small chambray? I remember it being tight. The medium is a little over 18" which seems ok for me. The measurement they gave me was 18" for small and 18.75 for med (which is obviously not right).

    I just ordered from them. This is my second time ordering. I am 5'8" 163lbs and small seems to work for me. I have the red chambray in small as well as some of the heritage poplin's in small from my first order like 2 months ago. On my new order I decided to stick with small for the crew necks and cardigan sweaters I ordered. I hope it turns out okay. I will post pics when i get the items.

    I was going to post some fit pics, but looking at them after taking the photos, I realized, the movements (or contortions rather) which would result in the button pulling are more like calisthenics, than normal movements I'd make while wearing a dress shirt. Maybe I'm ok with them after all. Oh, the sleeves are too long. Sigh.

    I can't speak for anyone else, but the extremely low prices are enormously tempting. I keep buying more items despite the quality and fit. Hoping to get lucky, I keep rolling the dice.
