Jersey's for big guys
I remember seeing a thread about riding tops for big guys last year but I don't want to dig it up. I'm starting to not like the jersey feel anymore. I like the zipper so would like to have one of those but I have a long upper body and am pushing 240. What do you guys like out there?
You might check out Primal. They have XXL sizes.
I thinking about ording one to try the fit.
I have a Fox XXL, but it's too short in the back.
Check out Boure Cycling wear, Ned Overends Company, they go up to 4x as well as will do customs . Small but great company to do biz with.
I have had better luck with domestic companies, buying italian XXL ain't the same as a US XXL.

05 Giant NRS 22.5in

Word of caution. The Primal Wear XXL ain't no XXL. I'm 6'5 and 245 -250 and had to go into their XXXL jerseys. And the XXXL still fits more closely than the XL and XXL jerseys I have from Pearl Izumi, Louis Garneau, Nashbar and Performance.

Pearl Izumi is the best by far!!!
I didn't fit in anything from Performance, Velowear, Sugoi either.
I buy only Pearl. I would caution you to do the same.
I'm 6'2" 235#s with a 33" inseam. That means I have a long torso, too. I just got the Hoss Rustler jersey in a size Large! It fits better than any other jersey I've ever tried on. I'm going to buy a few more. I mean, why not, they're only $25!!
I just got a Hoss Rustler jersey in XL and it fits nicely. I wear a XXL- tall in normal shirts. My other jersy is a Pearl Izumi XXL which aslo fits good, but I think the Rustler has a little more room in it. Both could be a tad longer, but I have a long torso. I'm about 6'2"-3" and have a 33" inseam.
I also recently got a pair of 3XL Hoss Ponderossa shorts which work nice. I had tried the XXL pair but they didn't fit over my rather big thighs, though I think the waist would have fit alright.

Addendum, I just looked and they now offer up to 4X in jerseys!
As stated earlier.....Primal's are super small.

They still look to be running small on the website you linked to
Certian Pearl Izumi's run a bigger.
I can't fit in anything but Pearl......My Ohio State jersey is from Velo and tight at XXL, but I love it!
Wish they made bigger jersies. Talk about easy sales....
