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)...so 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 (sigh...as 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
Joe

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.
