Maligned 3xl Jerseys ...

Postby rocksbrewer » Sun Dec 18, 2011 5:03 pm

Hi there

New to the forum (G'day admins) and to riding.

Had alook at Cell/Torpedo 7/Wiggle and Ebay, umm as someone who is 105kg and 6'4" is it me or are the availability of anything passed 2XL jerseys an elusive species. I'm not much into the Team kit jerseys and also do not need to look liked a trussed leg of pork and have the jersey end up half way up my back after 2 meters. I also do not need to spend $150 on expensive brand names ... i'm not that into things yet.

So, is getting these sized jerseys like shoe stores that cater for wemon with big feet, in some obscure location where you need to be referred by someone with the same problem?

As someone who's 6'5" and 115kg, down from 140kg, you're only small!

It will of course depend on your build. If you've got a long torso, you will have problems full stop. As for jerseys, I've ordered a couple of sets from mupi and am definitely happy with their fit. They do a good 3xl. I also have a sprint designs jersey. They're local and therefore you tend to pay a bit more for them, but I think they go up to 6xl on some designs, and some of their designs can be cheaper.

From there there's the obligatory jerseys from the land of the large in the US. Love2pedal I think is one that is commonly referred to and go huge.

I also have a couple of uno jerseys but they are definitely on the smaller end of larger sizes. The elastic on the pockets of those jerseys has perished while cheaper jerseys of the same age are still going strong.

I'm sure there's heaps more, but that's my experience.

You can get some great jerseys from 'Prendas', just google them. I've bought up to 4XL from them, sale items to use as some casual shirts.
