Very Strange Fit

I have the FRC shorts and short sleeve jersey which i am thrilled with in every way, including fit, so this was a natural purchase. Hi am however very disappointed with this jersey, perhaps a got a one off bad jersey, not really sure. In any case, it is on its way back as the fit could not be worse. the materials and craftmanship are great. Details on the fit... I am 6'2" and 180#: The jersey is very tight in the chest, much tighter than the "areo" fit of the shortsleeve jersey, and loose in the stomach. The cut is such that there is almost an inch between the bottom of the jersey and the start of my bibs, its a "belly" shirt, again much different than the bike specific fit of the short sleeve FRG Jersey. The upper arm is restrictively tight while the forearm is baggy.

In summary if you have a narrow chest, with a gut and popeye forearms this is the perfect fit, otherwise, might not be a great selection.

The best cycling jerseys fit tight in the shoulders and chest OFF the bike just standing up. They are also short in front. The jersey should be a perfect fit, with no bunching, when you are on your bike.

You hear so many people complain about fit off the bike. I spend 99 percent of my time wearing cycling clothes on the bike, not in the coffee shop trying to look good.
