Rider needs custom jersey suggestions as stock don't fit properly.

I'm a short rider (5' 6") but with a somewhat larger chest (42") for my height (as I'm quite active with weights and other sports) when I buy a medium, it's too tight and thus have to buy either a large or xl....and the problem here is it's way too long in the body and doesn't look right...heck it even makes me look shorter.

I do realize that Boure used to do custom but no longer ( they do such lovely work) is there anyone out there who does really nice work both in prints and materials/finishings at a reasonable cost whom I might investigate further?

Many thanks

You could tuck it into your shorts and pretend it's That 80's Jersey.

You're gonna hate hearing this, but what about trying a women's jersey? They're cut shorter, wider in the chest, narrower in the waist.
