    Items of clothing/footwear come in (not with) various sizes.

    Yes, but I'm ordering three colors with three different sizes.

    Or

    I'm ordering three sizes with three different colors.

    Kind like saying - Burger with fries.

    So it's not okay?

    It is extremely unlikely that anybody would order a shirt in three sizes. After all, each of us is currently just one size. Such grammatical speculations have little to do with real life or real usage.

    Yeah, because I'm ordering it in bulk, so that's why I need three sizes.

    Whatever. 'With' is still wrong.
