Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Don't like the fit of the Swobo wool short sleeve jersey in size large. Though it's advertised as a generous fit, it's too tight in the waist area and the sleeves are too long. I know....I know I could lose some weight. But the two other jerseys I own are supposed to be a tighter cut than the swobo but fit fine in my paunch area.

Just wondering how Kucharik, EWR, Ibex and other wool jerseys compare in fit with the swobo

The EWNR wool jerseys that I have fits a little less snugly than the Swobo and the sleeves are probably a little shorter as well.

Funny, my Swobo Lg (black) is a bit tight in the chest, but ok in the waist. Prob'ly an irregular. Like it so much for $45 at BackCountry, I ordered another in blue. They do fit snug tho. I'm 5'11", 177 with a 43" chest and 34" waist and it certainly isn't loose.

Just went for a ride in bright sunshine and it was fine in 80 degrees

I can't comment on the fit, but here's another option for wool jerseys.
