So in American bike jerseys I'm typically size L. In Castelli I usually go XL. From the comments here, and my past experience, I ordered XL, and it is too big! I exchanged for size L, and while the jersey fit better in general, now the problem of the arm holes being too high is REALLY obvious. Man, what a good-looking jersey too! Just doesn't fit right. The parts I don't love about this jersey are the sleeves - that they're set in (instead of raglan) and that they're floppy at the ends like a T-shirt.
I had to change the star rating down to three because the fit problem isn't in the sizing, apparently.
Does the fit of this jacket pretty much follow the fit of the jerseys? Meaning I normally wear a size large race fit, but wear size XL in Castelli jerseys. So I'd want an XL in this jacket?
Finally a jersey that fits me! These are built with an athletic cut. Wide enough at the shoulders with no pit binding. And still snug around the torso. Great pockets that don't hang up on your gloves. Bonus is all the reflective material around the arm band and on the back. Great material. Great fit. Great look. I'm sold on the Silverline!
At least for me, the size chart worked perfectly - this rarely happens! I'm 5-11 and 165 pounds. 41" chest. A size large is perfect for me.
I would so love for this thing to be a more athletic fit. At 165#, 5'10" and 41" chest, the size chart says I'm a size L. Size L assumes that I have a ~35" waist when my waist is 32". Size L fits perfectly across my chest, but is too long and too bulky in the body. Size M is perfect length, and fits just right in the body... but is way too tight in the arm pits. Any chance this thing can be built for folks with more athletic builds? I LOVE the material and construction. I just can't get one to fit me.
