There is mixed feedback about the sizing of this garment.
I'm 5'9, my waist is 31". Im a slim/medium build.
I have looked at the sizing guide which would put me in a Small... but everyone says buy a size up, should I go for Medium?
I'm 5'10.5" tall, 40 chest, 32 waist. I went for the medium (5'11"/39/35) which fits me perfectly. On the bike it's a neat fit, which eliminates flap, the sleeves are a good length to cover the wrists and the collar is comfortable around my 15.5" neck. I am however finding it a touch restrictive across the shoulders, especially when I'm down on the drops. This means it rides up a little at the back, but the drop hem seems to compensate ok. There's only really room for a base layer underneath, but this combination is quite warm when you're active (bearing in mind the jacket has a drop mesh liner) and should work in most English conditions. If you're planning to add a fleece layer for slow and/or sub-zero winter rides you'll need the bigger size. In summary I'd recommend you trust the sizing chart and then exchange if it doesn't fit the bill.
