I am 6'4" and wear a 34/35 sleeve. Van Laack shirts fit me well, and I like the striking fabrics and colors they use. Here is the "scoop" on this particular item: These shirts are NOT made of thick flannel. Color 04 is a blue/grey plaid in a brushed fabric- it feels like a cross between a standard cotton and nice lightweight flannel. A great shirt! I bought color 01 and it did not have the same brushed finish, it feels more like standard cotton sport shirts. A nice shirt that I kept, but it was inaccurately described. If you are slim and plan to dry clean your Van Laack shirt the tailored fit in your usual size should work, but if you launder at home and plan to wear this shirt tieless ordering up in size might work out better. One accidental spin in the dryer can really shrink this brand, though some fabrics do so more than others.
