If a store purchase one lot of a certain style men's shirt, then they know how many of each size they will obtain according to industry standard.  The same is true for shoes. The stores don't make such decisions.

I leave it to the enterprising TIG subscriber to help with the Stanford Sizing Ratios for Men's Shirts.  Since I grew up in NYC, we used the Manhattan Size Ratio for hats, the Queens Sizing Ratio for the Western Village, and the Bronx Cheer for everyone else.
