    That's what I thought. I am the same size as you, and the XTRA Small is a 44". That seems crazy.

    The fitted sizing seemed a lot tighter.

    If you want a laugh, check out the sizing on the henleys.

For me, at 6'2" and 210 lbs., the medium tall tailored fit for LE was the right choice. Still plenty of room to move, and I can wash and dry them without worrying.
    I am now questioning if I have ever worn the right size! I am 6'2" and 215 and am borderline between L and XL in most things. If I wore a medium it would look like spandex. I had usually worn XL as I thought L were too tight across the chest and too short in the body, but I recently tried a Large in a target short-sleeved henley and I can get on with that. But medium.....

    Do you know your chest measurement? That's usually a pretty good guide for sizing. Most mediums are designed to fit a 38-40 inch chest, large is usually 42-44, etc.
