Jersey sizing guidance for late purchasers

If you did not get in on the original order and plan to get one of the extras Joe ordered. Here is a sizing hint - order TWO sizes larger, or one size larger if you want a skin tight fit. I wear men's size medium to large, tending to medium, in regular shirts. XL shirts swallow me. My XL jersey fits like a skinsuit. It's fine. I have a couple of other snug-fitting jerseys, but I wout have ordered XXL had I known. So if you wear a men's small I would suggest a medium if you want a skin tight fit, large if you want a comfortable fit.

Others who have received their orders please chime in if this fits with what you are finding. I don't want to lead anyone astray.
Regards,
Raymond

I think Rainman has characterized the sizing perfectly. I generally wear a L to XL depending on the garment, and ordered the XL jersey. Tending to prefer a looser rather than tighter shirt, I was considering a return for a XXL, but then the other half walked in and shrieked with lust.....so I'm staying pat.

Also, after a few arm swings and side-straddles, it did loosen a bit and now simply form-fits lightly rather than clinging.

My size M fits just as I expected it would - a skin-tight Euro fit (chest 38-40). If you prefer a less snug fit go up one size or for a club fit go up 2 sizes, just as Rainman suggests.

Great colors and graphics - quite eye-catching. I'd post a photo but I'm off to ride and flash my new threads. Does anyone think it'd be cool to collect everyone's jersey photos under a single thread?

Having now worn the jersey on a ride I may have exagerated a bit. It's not quite as tight as I first thought but still a snug fit. I like it.
