Yank - Its a great question. This is only one perspective, so weigh it with all others you get. I seldom wear these shirts in public, but if I do, I don't like them to fit like an oversized t shirt as if I'm wearing my father's shirt. I like them to look somewhat form. Using American measurement units, I am 5'10 (177/178cm) and approx 190lbs (85/86kg) and since NB/Warrior became the kit manu I have worn Medium Liverpool shirt every year. It does look very form or tight, depending on the time of the year and how active I've been. It all comes down to how you like to wear them. All that said, You may indeed be ok in the 2X. Hope this helps!Question on NB sizing (from the wearer's point of view--not the sizing chart): is it wise to go one size higher, or more, for proper fit? I am more of a Shaq-like stocky bloke--wider across the shoulders than others. In Nike or Adidas, I can do an XL and be fine. But, with NB (from 17-18) I ultimately had to go with a 3XL in order to fit. But, a mate of mine--who is of similar build--bought an 18-19 XXL and it fits fine. What is a recommendation?
Yeah, I know: lose some weight, you fat bastard lol
