Hi Bryan,

I'm about the same weight and close to the same height, so I tread that same line. I find the mediums are perfect in length, but really tight in the thighs. For a workout I often wear the mediums, but for recovery I will usually wear the larges and cuff the bottoms slightly so there is no slack.

Sorry for the wishy washy answer, but it's a tough one that comes down to personal preference. There is not a huge difference between sizes with compression stuff since they stretch so much.

For shirts, you can get a good idea based on suit coat sizing. I typically think that a 40 or 42 would be a medium and a 44 or 46 would be a large.

Let me know if you have any follow up questions.
