    Pissei kit fitment?

    Pre-TLDR: Do Pissei kits fit like normal rational sizing?

    My local club went with Pissei for their new kits: Shop

    I have no idea how Pissei fit. Their size chart... I went at it with a measuring tape and I think it was useless. Full circumference measurements anyone?

    I'm 6'0" 180lbs generic semi-muscular build. I was thinking medium jersey and large bib shorts. But, man I've got kits that fit terrific in sizes ranging SM to XL so IDFK what to think when I can't find subjective feedback on a brand. Since its custom order it's not like I get a second chance if it doesn't fit.

    This post here: Longer shorts, why? is the only flippin feedback I can find on Pissei kit fitment on the entirety of the internets.

    If you've tried their stuff, simply providing your height/weight and sizes and/or subjective feedback is appreciated!!

    Thanks

    I don't think 'fitment' is the word you are looking for. 'Fit' fits

    Now that you mention it I looked it up and fitment's definition just doesn't fit.
    It's actually used quite widely in the car world. Albeit us wrench monkeys are no wordsmiths
    "What cars does this part fit?" = ex. "What's the fitment?" ex. "The Subaru wheel fitment thread."

    To follow up, Reddit ended up being leagues more helpful on this topic. If you came here from the vast expanse of the internet looking for an answer to a similar question refer to this: Pissei kit fitment? : cycling

    Most notably:

    take a jersey you like. place it flat, no creases, on a table, front down. measure between the armpits using a tape in cm. look at the sizing chart, first table, on row F and choose the column which is the same as you measured, or slightly larger. use the number in brackets at the top of the column. if you are larger than the largest column, use 6.
    if you care more, use more measurements in different directions, think, and make a decision based on the fit you want.


    similar for bib and second table. really this isn't that hard. i've just had a pisco and i can work it out.
    It did the trick. IDK why I didn't have the common sense click to measure off a well fitting jersey but I know now. Hope that helps someone some time in the future.

    Thanks anyways all.

    Didn't Pissel send samples so you could try the fit?
