Clothing sizes are absolutely massive nowadays.

Seriously. I went into Ross and Burlington to shop around for polo shirts, and I tried on a small, and it was STILL too big for me. I'm 215 pounds, guys. It's just weird for a small to not fit me. Some stores such as Hollister, Abercrombie, and other stores which sell "athletic fit" shirts, still have a good fit, and typically, the polos fit me very well at size M, but then they stretch out too fast because the material is too thin (especially Hollister). Old Navy pique cotton polos fit me wel, but they fit well in a small, not a medium. I tried on a Polo by Ralph Lauren polo shirt in a small, and that still felt too big, as well. Why are sizes so huge? Is it just because America is so fat?
