We should all agree on the fact that measuring stuff in kings limbs, oxes working pace and beer cans (ok) and so on, isn't getting us anywhere. Hence, the SI-system. Better write that one down.
On the fit, I echo the previous posts. What should the athletic people wear if medium is obese and the slim cut must be able to accommodate a fleece. I like Haglöfs cut, yes I'm also a Scandinavian. Really like Patagonia as a company, but even their "fit" isn't as fit as the Haglöfs I'm used to. They should all post their measurements so we can compare.
