    I"m in a bit of a pickle with Campagnolo Jersey sizes as shown below. I"m usually a medium in everything which includes a JAGGAD jacket I bought last week which fit me perfectly. The JAGGAD website showed that their medium is 95cm/37cm but 95cm is exactly 37.4cm which is 0.1cm off a Large size in the Campy sizes. so I"m pretty much on the border haha Does anyone have experience with Campy Jersey's or gear? Should I get the Larger size and have it a bit loose or should I shoot for the MEdium and have it a little tight? my shoulders are around 49-50cm (unless I stuffed up the measurement method I sort of guessed). I heard the Campag are a pretty small fit so I"m a bit worried on what to do :confused:

    Euro sizing is US sizing plus one size up, thus a US medium is akin to a Euro large.

    So its still ok to go a size up even if I"m on the border of the 37 ish inch? I"ve never worn a jersey before haha this will be my first so I don't know which is worse. a loose or a tight jersey :D

    I think I"ll just buy the Large to be safe....

    Will not comment on the sizing issue, but you would want a relatively tight fitting jersey (no, not sausage tight) as the last thing you want is a tent flapping all over the place while you ride! :)

    To take it further, a race type jersey will be a bit tighter than a general rec riding jersey
