I've got both an XL and a M shirt, both of which are pretty much exactly what
I would expect either size to be. Is sizing just different in other parts of
the world? I know here in the states at least S,M,L,XL are all roughly the
same for T-shirts no matter where you're getting them from.
For whatever its worth at 5' 8" and about 170Lbs. I prefer a M, and mine fits
perfectly. Any smaller would definitely be too small. The XL I got for free
at Notacon is a little big...but I ain't complaining, as it was free.
Btw, the shirts look just as cool in real life as they do on the website.
OBSD has definitely got the best looking merchandise of any open source/free
software project I know of...hell, of any software I know of period.
