    Big clothes for big guys.

    I need to pick up a jersey from Aerotech Designs this week and I was wondering how they fit. I wear a 3x/4x regular t-shirt. I have a Nashbar 3x jersey that I can barely get zipped. I know the Aerotech jerseys run big, so I'm debating on whether to get a 4x or a 5x.

    I normally wear a 4x shirt.

    I ordered their normal Big Man Jersey in 4x, and while it definitely fit, it was much more form fitting than I was comfortable with. Figured I'd hang onto it anyways in hopes it would fit better after I dropped some weight.

    I then tried their Colossal Loose fit in 4x and was much happier with it. It fit much more like a regular t-shirt.

    I'm a scrawny bastard compared to you guys, but I still get jerseys in xxl despite typically wearing a large t-shirt. for mountain biking I think the skin tight jerseys are too restricting in the shoulders. I would always order the next size up if there was a question.

    What is the difference between bike jerseys and just plain dry-fit tee shirts? I have been wearing dry-fit tee shirts while I ride and they seem to be just fine. I am wondering if I would benefit by getting one.

    I got the 4X jersey today, it fit's pretty good, though it could be a little longer (I have a pretty long torso).

    One other thing I forgot to mention, now you'll have to keep the ladies from ravishing you while wearing the jersey. It's our curse to bear.

    Probably not a huge difference. The zip front and the pockets in back are nice, plus it's longer in back to better fit you while in riding position, I guess.

    Cycling tops are just that bit closer fit and the zip and back pockets can be useful. Ride what feels comfortable.

    For the not-quite-so-clyde guys, I can recommend Twin Six clothing. I'm about a 48" chest and tall, and their XXXL tops are now the only ones I'll buy.
