    Longer Jerseys?

    I posted in the "i look fat in this Jersey" thread a picture of a Jersey I picked up:



    I decided that I didn't like the fit, and returned it. It seems like it only came to about my waist, and would ride up during riding. I replaced it with another Pearl Izumi jersey (Podium) in X-L (same size as the one pictured above). The Podium seems longer than the Focus was, but maybe it is due to the form fit vs semi-form fit?

    Long story short -- My LBS doesn't have much in X-L due to end of season, and I want to order another Jersey online. I bought the Podium in black (stupid idea) and want something higher visibility. I'm temped to just get another Podium in another color, but would like to know how I tell if something will be shorter, or longer? Am I especially tall in the torso or something? (32" inseam, 6'1").

    Thoughts?

    That's about average torso length, I'm 6'+ with a 30 inseam and I'm long torso.

    Voler seems to fit me as does Aerotech designs stuff. Look at club cut jerseys as well.

    Giordana has a jersey called the 'Silverline Superfit' which fits great on me, and I have a long torso too.

    The Nashbar Essential jersey in size XXXL is plenty long for my 6'6" frame. The neon yellow or neon green colors are highly visible. The jersey is a bit baggy on me, not form fitting. It is currently on sale for $19.99.

    Thanks Tom! I received my jerseys and am EXTREMELY happy with them! My only gripe is they do still fit a bit short. Luckily I also bought bib-shorts so that makes it a non-issue.

    Normal Jersey, XL, 6'1", 225lb.

    I usually buy euro cut jerseys a size or two larger than what I'd wear in an American cut.
