Craft cool mesh base layer sizing?

5'9" and skinny, usually take a small size in the upper body in the Italian brands (the exception being the infamously small-fitting Castelli climber's jersey, Euro version, for which I'm a medium..)

Craft do an XS, so wondering if I'm S or XS. IME brands that actually do an XS usually have larger US style sizing.

    Hopefully they come up small as I just stuck one in my basket last night while I was ordering some new tubs from germany and without even thinking I ordered a large as that's the size I take in race fitting jerseys. But when I put my current base layer on this morning I realised I use a medium...

    I am a large in Castelli, have a medium craft mesh base layer and its one size to big for me. Same height but not so skinny, 76kg.

    I'm about 5'8 and 10st and find the small Craft base layers to be a close fit rather than tight. Certainly looser than my small Gore base layer but I don't think I'd go a size down.

    For what it's worth, I'm 6'4 75kg and wear a small so I'd imagine an XS would fit you better.
