    Big & Tall Jersey's

    I am looking for a zip front short sleeved cycling jersey with the back pockets, wicking material, and UV protection. I wear a XXL (48-50 in. chest) Tall in most t-shirts, polo's, sweatshirts. etc. To date, the bike shops that I have checked out have had nothing in my size. I have had no results from my web search either. Any supplier/manufacturer recommendations will be appreciated. Thanks***

    Nashbar and Performance both have jerseys in XXL.XXXL ...up to 54 chest sizes as I recall. Don't know about Tall sizes though.

    I'm about your size and I have found many items (shorts and jerseys) at Aerotech.

    http://www.aerotechdesigns.com/

    The jerseys:

    Let me state that I have ordered a jersey and 3 pairs of shorts through Aerotech and have never been disappointed.

    I'm also a 48-50 chest with a long torso and go for "longs" or "talls" in shirts whenever possible. I wear Performance XXL jerseys and they're a great fit.

    Forget Nashbar & Performance and the other big chains selling jerseys made by slave labor in Asia.

    Check out Jackson & Gibbens in Oregon. All their stuff is designed an manufactured right there in Oregon, and it's extremely high quality, often with neat features the asiacrap doesn't have.

    They also specialize in fitting large folks, and have a section on their website just for us.

    My Performance XXL jersey got here last week. It's a great fit - I really like it. Thanks for the headsup,
