    I will only buy Hoss clothing. I'm normally between an XL and 2XL. In the Hoss Rustler jersey, I'm a Large. Plus, the thing comes way down my back so it won't ride up when I'm on the bike. I'm going to need some new baggies as well, and I'm going with the Hoss Ponderosa shorts. They've gotten excellent reviews in all the mags, they're cheap and they have big sizes.

    Two places seem to have deals on Hoss: Wheelworld and Jenson. But if they don't have your size or the right color, then you can just order directly from Hoss. The difference in price is like $5, so not that big a deal.

    I have a Hoss Rustler Jersy in a XL and it fits me fine. I am a XXL Tall normally (I'm around 6' 2" -3") with a 33" Inseam. I can't quite zip the neck up all the way on it but I don't really care about that.

    Hoss size chart for jersey:

    S 44 (chest)
    M 46 (chest)
    L 48 (chest)
    XL 51 (chest)

    I'm 6'2" with a 33.5" inseam, which means my torso is long, long, long. I must buy XLT in regular shirts at the mall. Every other jersey I ever tried rode up my back four inches. And then there was the Hoss Rustler jersey that comes about five inches longer than other brands. Again, to go from an XLT or XXLT to a Large that actually fit extremely well was a big surprise for me. Oh, and my neck is a 17.5, and I can zip up the jersey all the way. You might have to leave it unzipped halfway, but big deal. For $25, how can you go wrong?

    I was looking at the Rustler jersey on the Hoss site. I wish they had real pictures of the other colors. It looks like they all come in a three color combo, or do some come in solid colors? Does anyone own the new navy or dirt color Rustler?

    I think that version has been discontinued, I really liked the blue though.

    Just picked up a work out jersey from wall mart made out of the same material as my 50.00 dollar cannondal jersey, and it only cost 10.00 for 2x. Just a thought.

    The Navy might be out of stock, but I'm pretty sure Hoss still has the Dirt and other colors from that older style in stock. The guys at Hoss are riders, not to mention being cool people, and I'm sure a quick call to their toll free number would sort out which colors are available: 800.615.0899.

    pricepoint has some too.


    I'm diggin the camo!


    Pearl Izumi also has decent jerseys. I fit in their XXL.
    I'm 6'6", 260.

    I have an Ohio State Jersy from Voler, that is cutting it close to being too short, but I couldn't pass it up.

    I really wish there was a better selection. There are some really cool jersey designs out there, but for the pip-squeaks only.

    the camo baggies look bad ass too!

    FYI, I'm 6'6", 260. Normally wear a XXL shirt, and 38-40 waist (need it for the thigh room)

    I got all excited and ordered the Hoss stuff above (got the white camo jersey and shorts).

    Their XL jersey was supposed to fit chest size 51.. ..only if you don't shoulders....

    The XXL shorts were close, but not much room in them.

    Hoss does make a XXXL Black baggy short, but they don't have as much vents as the pearls....

    Moral of the story....stick with Pearl Izumi. They've never left me down. The shorts are awesome!
    I was just hoping to get some variety in my clothing.

    I'm 6'6", 260.

    I really wish there was a someplace that made decent looking, bike clothes for the bigger folk.

    Even custom ordering jerseys doesn't help.
    I feel like we get stuck with 3rd quality stuff like the Big & Tall crap......

    I think some folks are missing out on one helluva market share....
