    Christmas Present for dh (Primal Jersey sizes)

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I know that the women's Primal jerseys tend to run a little small - do the men's run small as well? Dh is 6'4", 240 lbs, and has a long torso, so he normally wears either an XLT or a 2XL. I don't think he'd like a super tight fit, if I had to guess. The Primal size charts aren't too helpful, since, um, this is supposed to be a surprise ("Here, honey, let me measure your chest!" - "Why?" - "Oh, no reason"). Well, that and those size charts weren't all that accurate for me (thank you, TE, for suggesting a size up!).

    So, will the XXL be safe, or should I get the 3XL?

    My DH is 6', ~220 lbs., with broad shoulders and an average length torso (based on his other clothing). I bought him a XL Primal Wear jersey that is fitted on him, but not race tight. His chest measurement puts him in an XL according to the size chart.

    Hope this helps!

    Perhaps you could measure the chest size on a jersey he currently wears and likes the fit.

    I've bought my DH Primal jerseys. He's 5' 7" and 145- 150 lbs. He always wears a medium and he wore a medium in the Primal, too. I didn't see much of a difference. This is opposed to regular clothes, where he is now a small in almost all things.

    This.

    I do think they run small, though, as DBF has a large in Primal and it fits...snugly.
    At least I don't leave slime trails.
