    I just bOught a medium size jersey... ?!??

    I'll admit, I'm off the wagon and not riding my routine in the past few weeks, but my wife just had a baby at the end of November and my ride time is baby time.

    To the point, the wife picked out a New Jersey for me for Christmas a "arrogant bastard ale" one, but it was my job to try it on and buy it.

    I drove up to my lbs (jensonusa), and asked for an XL ... Holy crap it's huge.... Ok, a large.... Still baggy.... Um.... Ok medium.. ...no way it fit. I feel like 1000000 bucks.

    I'm still 235lbs and 6'4".. And most brands I'm probably XL or Xxl, but I'll take what I can get.

    (Similar ego boost when I put on a pair of 33" x36" jeans two weeks ago that have been in the closet since college. )

    It is amazing how labels that are in your ego's favor boosts your motivation to keep it up.

    Odd... I have the same jersey. I usually wear a 2XL (6'2" and 220) and it was a sack, so I returned it and got XL, which is still large but fits OK. I can't imagine getting a MEDIUM!

    I guess I like Canari now.

    I think they stole Docker's sizing chart.

    Ha ha, made me laugh...

    It is a nice change from the 5XL, can't get it over my eyeballs sizing the Euros use.
