    Maybe it was because in 1999 all those geeky Linux guys were buying the T-Shirts for their girlfriends???

    Noooo... that can't be it :-)

    Maybe in 1999 the Linux Geeks were younger?

  3. Let's say for arguments sake that they didn't add a single geek, thus they're all 9 years older.

    Would it be normal to increase two T-shirt sizes in 9 years?

    That's music to the ears of Pfizer, Novartis and Co. They planned it all carefully, step by step, long time ago.

    Is this US data or Europe? There has been a lot of size inflation in the US - today's Medium is the Large of 10 years ago, and is apparently still a Large in Europe.

    All the shirts I buy in the US from mainstream brands are Medium, but the ones from fashion brands or European makers are sized Large. If that's US data, it's even worse than it looks. Just move everyone up another size!

    FYI, I'm 5' 11" and 180 lbs with a 34" waist (real, my jeans say 32) and a 42" chest. That's 180cm tall, 82 kg, 86cm waist, 107 cm chest. (I typically wear a 50 or 52 EUR jacket.)

    By any reasonable standard, I should wear a Large, but I don't in the US.

    EEK! I'm one of those Linux geeks..I only went up one t shirt size however. In my case, it took me way longer.
    Since being on hflc,I've shrank,however.

    Using the same analytical thinking that has proven that fat consumption causes heart disease, it's obvious that Linux is fattening.

    Between 1999 and 2008 I was wearing XL. Since then I've shrunk down to a M.
