    Hey guys I could use a little help. I'm trying to size myself for this uniqlo oxford but I'm not sure if I should go with a small or medium. I have ~17 shoulders, 40 chest, and I'm 6ft 185 lbs. What does the L/S stand for btw? /noob
    I'm still a bit unsure of whether or not to go for the slim cut or the normal one, does anyone have any insight on this? :)

    Measurements tell me XS but weight says small, perhaps might even need medium

    That helps lol :p
    I'm just a little confused because on the UK sizing chart the small measurements are awesome for me but then the chest size recommendations say that I should be a medium so which one should I rely on?

    Everyone carries their weight differently. I say if you are using a proxy, get a small to be safe. Medium may end up too boxy. UK website has measurements FWIW and you can use that as a guide

    Depends on how big your order is, but general the consensus is 'yes'
    There are some reliable members as well who may be better suited for small orders

    How tight/fitted do you wear your clothes, Kross?

    I like things slim but not too tight. My ideal cut is the Jcrew sun faded oxfords in small. I absolutely despise when my button ups billow.

    If you have a JCrew shirt, take a tape measure and compare it to the measurements on the UK site.

    I say this because I own a few small +J shirts in regular fit, and they are just a tiny bit smaller than my JCrew shirts (also small, regular fit). The slim fit shirt you're looking at is probably more so, so double-checking wouldn't hurt.
