6XL Jerseys Found

I got tired of wearing Aerotech. They are nice but I wanted more. I found sites that had Santini Jerseys that are 6xl and fit 50-52 inch chest. They are snug on my 320 lb frame but I finally have lost the inches to get into them.

Take a gander:

Search through and find the Jerseys up to 6xl. I was glad I did and picked up some!

I love the Santini jerseys, super nice quality and good choice of sizes.. The do have a euro cut but are cut long in the back which is good for taller riders..

bikejerseys.com also carries a brand called suarez which is a very economical brand but still has good quality. The best thing to do is email them your height, waist size, weight and they will help you find the right size.. I have been buying from them for years and they are good website to buy from..

Nice, but I wonder why they are tagged as 6XL. They look like 3XL size (50"-52" chest). It must be like 6XL in road racer size.

Euro cut! Santini is famous for it!

I am about same size as you PATH....never had any major fit problems with Aerotech jersey.

However, recently I started wearing Alert Shirts for commuting and now am liking them so much I'm starting to wear them for the long weekend rides too. They are cut for big guys and a 3XL fits me just fine (perfect fit...not a tight fit).

KingTermite,

I have no fit problems with the Aerotech and they make a great product. I just wanted more in the way of colors and such. Vanity on my part but I wanted a team jersey and such. I especially love my South Australia team jersey!

Thanks for the heads up on the Alert Shirts. I will be ordering some of their stuff!

Santini - I just find it hard to support a company that says a 35 inch waist is a XXXL in shorts

I guess we are the opposite. I have some jerseys, one nice aerotech one with a beautiful design of a bear on it (haven't seen it listed for a long time). But I've been wanting to look less and less "pro" lately. I prefer the Fred look and have been reverting back a bit.

Not as good as a full-up jersey, but not bad. I've worn them on 40 mile rides with no problems.
