Yet another sizing query

I am 6' , chest 38" and waist 32" or 33. Which size woul be right for me because the sizes seem to be for a much heavier build than me. Or is it just that this brand caters for chunky men?
I also have some Altura bib tights, which are large size and a perfect fit, would this brand be the same size?
I'd also like to get a couple of cycling jerseys that are in the sale, again, should I go by height or chest measurement?

Large should fit you well. I am the same size as you but 180cm tall & large fit me perfectly.

Chain compatibilty

Have an old road bike with Shimano 2200 derailleurs and HG50 cassette and chain. HG50 chains don't seem to be available any more - will this chain work instead? If not, what chain would be suggested?

Can you recommend a compatible chain for Diamond Back Ascent

I have an early 90s bike with 7 speed Shimano Exage 400SX mech and biopace chain rings. It says Hyperglide and narrow chain only on various components.

You are the same size as me. I find Large are perfect, a little tight at 1st but will not be too big or loose once they have stretched to suit you.

No,unfortunately, this jacket doesn't have any pockets at all. I guess that is to ensure the integrity of the waterproofing.
