    Bikeforums jersey sizes

    I was hoping to buy an extra jersey from Joe, but now I am worried about sizing. I have seen posts from a couple of people that their XXL is too small. I am 6'4" and 260lbs, is anyone who ordered an XXL jersey close to this size. If so, how does yours fit.

    Everyone sounds to be very happy with the design. Would love to see some pics posted of actual jerseys.

    Bill,
    I can't comment on XXL, but my XL is a very close, but not tight, fit on my 42" chest. I normally wear size L and even M. On the other hand it is nice and long on me at 6'0", longer than any other jersey, which should be good news for you. DnvrFox mentioned that his was quite snug, but I don't remember him mentioning his chest size; you might ask him. Hope this helps.
    Regards,
    Raymond

    Mine is on its way. I ordered an XL and the cannondale jersey I wear now is XXL. I have a feeling the BF Jersey will be snug, even with the everyday cycling and slimmed figure.

    I'm 245#-ish and I didn't order one myself. If I remember correctly, the XXL sizing sounded more like an X to an XL with some shrinkage. If your near a 50" chest as I am, then I'd imagine that it wouldn't fit comfortably.

    It will be too small.

    Yes, I have an XXL and it fits ok, I could use just a little more room. I'm 6'3" 225.

    Sorry

    Thanks to all those who replied. It sounds like I should wait until next time the forum orders custom jerseys. When: a) I have slimmed down some or b) there are larger sizes available.

    Thanks again to all
