Sleeve length on long sleeve jerseys
I was looking to purchase a long sleeve jersey, but the sleeves are way too long (like six inches past my finger tips). I was looking at a large Pearl Izumi jersey. I am only 5'8", have short arms, and have lived in the weight room for the past several years (not literally). I don't think I can go any smaller than a large due to my chest/back/shoulder size. What should I do? Are arm warmers with a short sleeve jersey my only choice due to my non-cyclist build? Do different manufacturers have different sleeve lengths? Do I have to get a jersey tailored for it to fit?
Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated?
