Does a sleeve size of a shirt have an effect on torso (waist and chest)? For example, would a 15.5 neck 32/33 sleeve shirt be the same in size in waist/chest as a shirt that's 15.5 neck 34/35 sleeve? Thanks!

Yes, in CT.

[sorry couldn't pass up the opportunity.]

Seriously though: Most ready-to-wear shirts specify only neck and sleeve measurements. The rest of the measurements are chosen for a prototype body, sometimes with distinction among body size such as small, medium, large, and extra large. Some designers also specify a "fit" such as slim, regular, and relaxed. There are no standards per se for body size and fit.

Ready-to-wear shirts rarely include chest and other measurement, but in general, the more measurements are included, the more expensive the shirts tend to be.

Here are three pages describing shirt measurements, in increasing order of information. Please take the information with adequate measures of salt:

In theory, they would be the same through the waist and chest, if they were the same fit (ie, traditional fit or athletic fit or slim fit).
Only the sleeves should be different.

Obviously I didn't understand your question then. I will retry answering, if you don't mind rephrasing your original question.

FWIW, I have received reps from others for my answer.

I used to work w/the men's shirts @ Macy's - the larger neck/longer sleeve lengths are are a more generous body cut (chest and waist)

Here's the deal...

the OP wants a shirt with a 15 1/2 neck.
He is asking if the shirt will fit the same through the body whether it is a shorter sleeve or a longer sleeve.
