What is up with the sizings these days?

I went to try on all the Mens Addidas and Nike shirts. I tried on the small size and they were all to big.

Do they make XXS or something? So far i found a Slazenger small that fits me perfect, and i purchased it.

Also the shorts i fit perfect in nikes mens medium. So i dunno whats up with the shirts.

Does nike and addiadas just make their shirts super big? Any brands you recommend that i can fit in, that don't do produce massively large shirts?

I've noticed this too. I just got a small Adidas shirt in from TW and it fits me but is huge for a small. It looks more like it's a medium at least.

Hm. My nike shirts I buy used to be medium but after they shrink they look too small on me. I'm 6'0'' and about 160lbs. The tennis shirts that are made out o fpolyester/cotton or something like that, I recently got large and it shrunk a good deal and now it also looks too small. But going up to XL is way too big. X_x. Yeah this sucks.

wait, the dri fit/polyester stuff shrinks? My stuff doesn't shrink.

I think i am just gonna order a bunch of small shirts and try them all on, and return the ones i don't want. I wish i lived in CA, or there was a Tennis-warehouse store near by.

I've had the same problem. Bought Large Adidas Tennis shirts from TW, and they are simply huge. Waiting for the medium to arrive. I hope I will not need Small.

I never ever trust the sizings for appparel. Same thing goes for shoes. It's always important to try them on before purchasing, if not, take measurements for comparison.

Received Medium and it is also too big (I normally wear Large). I asked TW to measure this shirt but they didn't even answer my email. I think I am done buying apparel online.
