    Tall jersey

    The change in weather has me shopping around for a long sleeve jersey. I run into a problem with upper apparel getting wider and not longer. I am 6'2" and thin, my chest measures out to a XL but I am hesitant to buy a XL because of the length. My question to you guys, do jerseys unlike shirts get longer when going up in size and if they don't is the tall sizes? Thanks for any input. I know go check out the LBS, my LBS has spandex suits, I live in the city. Don't want to drive to REI (15 miles) to potentially try on a jersey that doesn't fit.

    Im 6'4" and dont have an issue with XL jerseys length, good thing is most bike specific jerseys are much longer in the rear especially. Jenson, Backcountry, modernbike, arts cyclery, pricepoint, bikebling, competative cyclist all have easy return policies if it doesn't work out...

    Thank you kindly, nice to know this thread made sense. A lot of people do not realize that shirts just get wider and not longer. Showing off my stomach is just not my style.

    I'm 6'3 and usually wear a size L in looser fit jerseys. As RipRoar said, most jerseys are cut to be longer, especially in the back, so the length tends to work out well.
