    Cycling Jerseys

    So im a big guy and want to get some cycling jerseys (just use T-Shirts right now) but i don't want them to look like I'm wearing vacuum sealed clothes lol.

    Ive seen some photos with people wearing them and they look really tight fitting, do they make them are aren't some much tight fitting?

    Here's my favorite. IMO they run true to size, and aren't cut too tight. As always YMMV, but performance has a 100% guarantee if you aren't satisfied.

    I have seen wider Jerseys. I think you should look for club fit.

    Yes, club or relaxed fit.

    The ones that you are referring to that are tight fitting are, I believe are called, "racer cut/fitting." They are designed for aero-dynamic reasons...amongst others.

    Other cycling jerseys that are not as form fitting are "club cut." They are more relax fitting, usually in the sleeves, and abdominal areas I think.

    Mind you, if you find a cycling jersey that has some really cool design and only comes in a "racer cut", try a size up : ) Might just work.

    Good Luck.

    Maybe try on some MTB Jerseys.
    They seem to have a more baggy fit.

    Endura Hummvee jerseys all the way, they are somewhere between a relaxed fit and athletic/tight fit, in other words it's not baggy but it doesn't hug your body ether. They got the three pockets in the back and there durable.

    I'd agree with the Endura, I have one and it's much more relaxed cut, I also have one from 2XU whihc is similar

    Many sites online give exact seam to seam measurements that might help. You can save a lot over LBS purchases that way.
