Morvelo jersey/bib sizing?

Postby dmwill » Mon Jan 20, 2014 5:08 pm

Anyone familiar with sizing? True to size or do I need to go a size up?

Seen a few specials for the jerseys and bibs online appear from time to time, added to the fact they look pretty cool.

I'm generally a medium for regular clothing (5'10", average shape). For Castelli I take XL for anything (jersey is a nice form fit as that's what I prefer, I'd say a large would be skin tight).

Thanks in advance.

Morvelo jerseys are huge. I found that a M is like a large from an Italian or Japanese brand.

Or it could be that you're built small. I have a L sized jersey and bibs, and they fit true to what's provided in the size chart.

Maybe mine was tagged wrong? I have L jerseys from Northwave and Pearl Izumi and they fit about right.

My L morvelo is like a tent in comparison. So either they are a large cut, or my one is tagged in error.

are your NW and PI jerseys race cut?

I know PI have different fits, from race/form fit, semi-form and loose etc.

I do agree the morvelo is a little looser fit compared to a race fit PI

Just out of curiosity dmwill. The size guide for Castelli lists the XL for 105cm chests, how does the waist fit? Got a 103cm chest and 32" waist. Hesistant to for the XL Castelli would mean the waist measurements would be about 3inches too big.

Yea, the Morvelo kit isn't a race cut. Its more of a 'performance' cut, I'd say.
