Muscular guy size review
on June 27, 2012
I'm writing this view to hopefully help any guys who are about my size. I'm around 5'8, just under 200 lbs. My chest and arms are pretty thick (about 46'' and 17'' respectively). My body fat is in the normal range (around 15%), but I've got a bit of a belly at the moment. Still, my chest is way bigger than my waist and this sometimes makes clothes fit oddly--either too big around the waist or too small around the chest. Because I like my clothes to be fitted and a bit snug, I thought I'd try out this brand.
I ordered the Korean XL (US L) and it fits me perfectly. I'm very pleased with the fit: the chest isn't too tight, the shoulders are just about perfect, the sleeves are snug but not restricting. I normally wear a US small or medium--usually a small is too small in the chest and a medium is too baggy in the waist--but I took a risk based on other reviews and went with the US Large. I couldn't be happier with the fit.
I will note that the sleeves would be pretty tight around the forearm/wrist if I wore the sleeves down. Since I only plan on wearing the sleeves up, that's not a problem for me. Also, the material has a bit of a stretch to it, which is nice and helps with the fit. Five stars.

I tried ordering a few other items in this same size and they were way, way, way too small. Maybe it was a fluke that this shirt fit or maybe different styles are sized incredibly differently. I don't know. But if you're my size, be careful... I don't think even an XXL would have fit on most of the things I ordered (hoodies and vests).
