Jersey

I am in need of a new jersey. Current ones are several years old. I wear XXXL t-shirts comfortably. No one wants to see me in anything skin tight. I am not looking for anything with team logs. A red one or a blue one would be nice. Short sleeve of course.

Please recommend me a vendor where I can buy a jersey correctly sized.

Thanks

5XL is what you will probably want The falconi's are good value, I have 2 of them.

I have always had sleeves, but now they have shirts with no sleeves. Thoughts?

Sleeveless is a good way to deal with the 'farmer's tan'. Just make sure to use sunscreen on your bare arms.

If you ever plan on racing, sleeves are required by USA Cycling.

In a crash that little bit of sleeve material can help reduce the amount of road rash.

5x is the largest they make now. They eliminated the larger sizes.

I have one of these that I got as a gift. I wear it as a backup of my other backups...3-4 deep in backup world. I'm really not a fan of the solid color. I'm 6'5" 210, if anyone wants it, it's yours for the cost of shipping.

Thank you guys for the kind words about love2pedal.

For guys buying their first jersey or their first jersey in a long time, I recommend measuring a t-shirt that you like the fit of from armpit to armpit (with the jersey laying flat on a table) and compare it to the measurement provided by the jersey seller or manufacturer.

As mentioned above, the Falconi is usually a good choice for Clydes because it is cut more generously than most jerseys----more like a t-shirt. Plus there is no elastic in the waist.

Also, we continue to offer the Clyde forum users a $5 discount off of any order (only at our website and not ebay). Just type in CLYD in the promo code box during checkout.

Dan

I bought a couple Falconis, but haven't worn them.

I got a long sleeved Crashtest dummy.
I got a short sleeved orange biohazard.
I have never received complements on my jerseys before. Now I get one almost every day I ride.
