Rated 5 out of 5 by KiltedChuck EC fits this 60 year old coot well. Plus EC versus Wrangler fit
Me: 155#, 38 chest, 33 true waist and 5'10" tall. I prefer a close fit. For this the Small/14.5x33 Ely Cattlemen fits best. It measures 21.5" pit to pit and 19 1/8" at the waist. The shoulder yoke is 15.5" or 16.5" depending on where and how you measure.
The Small Wrangler measures and fits me the same but the shoulder yoke is 1.5 inches wider. Thus, being too wide for my shoulders, it causes the shirt to un-tuck more when I reach over my head.
The old 70s-80s Lee, Miller and Rockmount shirts I have are narrower yoked ( 14.5 or 16 ) and fit me perfect - no un-tucking or shoulder locking at all.
Have noticed just about all makers I have tried recently have loosened the waists about an inch in the last 30 years. Hmm. LOL
Anyway I am "Happy, Happy, Happy" with the current Ely Cattleman shirts fit.
