      I figured that their stuff runs large, so I ordered three in size S last year.

      I was a bit heavier then than I am now, about 170lbs and maybe 15% body fat (slight belly, but still had a drop from chest to waist). I'm 5'9 or so.

      The sleeves were much too short, and the chest was much too tight. You'd think that I should just try a medium, right? no. The midsection was so billowy that I could place a basketball inside without stretching the fabric.

      These are designed for men with beer bellies.


        @kbrown: I'm 5'9/150.

        I ordered the small and medium about 2 years ago when they were on sale for $20 each. The small was too tight on me, so I kept the medium.

        The chest/body is too big on me, but it might work for you at 170. My guess is that the area around your waist is going to be super billowy, though. JAB stuff is just made for fatties.
