I thought this would be an interesting topic. I've noticed that a shirt size of one brand does not necessarily equate to that of another. I measure at 16 neck and 34 sleeve, but try to go for 16.5 neck for comfort, but either way here is what i buy.

CT Slim Fit - 16.5-34
TM Lewin Slim Fit - 16.5-34.5
JAB Tailored Fit - 16-34, and then shrink it in the drier
JAB Signature - 15-34....... can still close the button hole too. Not sure what is up with the sizing on these (vanity sizing??)

What about you guys?
