The Arm Lengths noted in the sizing guide seem rather large and unrealistic. Can the Massdropper please confirm that indeed the "Arm Length" measurements (34 to 35.5) in the size guide are in inches and correct. They appear to be more like leg inseam measurements. Thanks in advance.

Got a men's Medium. Arm length is at least 34". Size also runs like a full medium, not an athletic cut.

The Arm Length measurement quoted by Massdrop is still not clear to me. I have a Medium size Icebreaker Mens Transit Jacket that was purchased from Massdrop. The selling proposal did not quote Arm Length, just chest, waist and hip to determine S, M, L, XL and XXL sizes. For my Medium size Icebreaker Transit Jacket, the actual length of the sleeve (armpit to cuff) is 22 inches. From top of shoulder to cuff the measurement is 24 inches. So, both are way less than 34”. It seems the web considers the measurement of garment Arm Length in my case to be 22 inches … e.g. https://www.craftyarncouncil.com/standards/body-sizing Also, here they are saying that although arm length varies the typical adult length of the average human arm is 25 inches, again which is markedly less that the Massdrop sizing chart. https://www.reference.com/science/long-average-human-arm-62c7536c5e56f385 So please excuse my ignorance but how can the quoted arm length be correct at 34-35.5” from S-XXL sizes? Thanks in advance.

Sleeve lengths are typically listed the same as for a fitted dress shirt. I wear a 16" neck and a 33" sleeve for a shirt. Sleeves for shirts are measured from the middle of the collar (back of neck) to the wrist. Here's a link https://propercloth.com/reference/how-to-measure-a-shirt-sleeve-length/
