Best Answer:I'm not sure what you mean by "regular" or "custom" fit. The shirt is cut in the more "vintage" fit that has become more common these days. So it's more fitted (tighter) than your regular shirt. The sleeves are only slightly shorter and smaller in diameter, the body is is also a slight bit more fitted (closer shoulder seam to shoulder seam, pit to pit), the length is normal. I don't have the shirt with me so I can't give you the exact measurements. Since it's a 50/50 heather it does stretch more than your regular 100% shirt, and it is a bit thinner, so it doesn't shrink although it does stretch. I have the medium and it fits comfortably and it certainly does not qualify as a small size. I'm medium/slight build, 5'8" 140 lbs. To add confusion, I also bought the "Brace" shirt in the same color (blood red heather) and size and it's more like a small, it almost seems like they used the wrong sized blank. I also have a "corporate identity" shirt in Rust (heathered) and it is sized exactly like the "solid blood red heather." It seems like the heathered blanks that Electric Visual are using are not your "regular" cut blanks, but what I've found is that most of the heathered or triblend blanks that companies are using are cut in the more "vintage" (custom ?) style, so they're more fitted. If you'd like the exact dimensions of the Medium that I own I guess you can resubmit your inquiry and I'll get the measurements to you. I'm not sure how consistent Electric is with their shirts, so I really can't tell you exactly what "normal" is, who knows maybe the shirts I have are all inconsistant anomalies ? The tighter fitting Medium "Brace" shirt could be a fluke. I like my shirts to fit neat & comfortably, I'm not into the "urban" oversized thing, and don't do the young hipster tight vintage 70's fit either.
