You've already recovered???? Are you trying to win immunity from being voted off the island?

If you can offer a bright pink option with tropical flowers, I'll take one of those.

They make bottoms. I didn't design any. I have enough work to do.

Oh d*mn you, I just got out of dutch for ordering the first jersey, NOW you offer me long sleeves, which I really need right about now even though its unseasonably warm and toasty this week. Time to start scheming and plotting in the shadows.

Now that a few people have them, how accurate is the sizing? According to that list, I should be ordering an L (in club), which would be the first time in history (hence my wariness - there's usually a collection of Xs in front of that L). I'm also long in the body. I'm a bit over 42" around the chest but broad shoulders always push me up a size, 6' tall and with a middle aged safety cushion around the middle. I also prefer slightly loose to skin tight. I'm thinking of Club cut, size L. Any suggestions?

My medium is snug, but very wearable. I usually wear a medium, and they are usually just a tiny bit looser. I tried on a large and it was too loose for me, and too big in the shoulders.
If you are worried at all, go XL. Better too loose than too tight, no?

Thanks mate. One order for an XL coming up. Usually when I get a jersy that's too small, I give it to my son, but that probably wouldn't work in this case
