Turns out it was what we would say was a Medium (at best, possibly a Small).
In Asia, you need to specify at least one size larger than what you normally wear in the States... I wore Large T shirts in the States but in Taiwan I can't wear a large T shirt because it's smaller.
It gets confusing because I found a store in Ximending that sells metal band shirts at US sizes, that means L fits me just fine while XL would be oversized. It seems they were intended for the US market (made in Thailand) and that store somehow got ahold of them. Really cheap too, the same shirt would cost around 1000nt in the States.
