Beautiful Jersey - Are you serious on the sizing?????
on October 27, 2014
I love Pearl Izumi products,..in fact, I'm basically exclusive to this brand when it comes to my road biking apparel. This jersey was beautiful and I was willing to pony up the $100 for it. However, the sizing is completely off on this particular jersey. I am a medium (5'9, 140, lean build). I own about 7 Pearl Izumi biking jerseys...I've paid similar prices for all of them...they are all mediums...and they all fit great. I could barely get this one zipped up and it wouldn't zip up around my shoulder area. It was way too small. The arm holes were way too tight. So, I sent this back and ordered a large...figuring that for sure the large would fit. Nope. My first issue was the company I ordrered it from sent this large jersey in a crumpled-up ball. I think someone else had ordered it and it didn't fit so they rolled it in a ball, shoved it back in the envelope and mailed it back....and this is how I received it. Yep. Paid $100 for a jersey that came to me in a crumpeled up ball. Completely unimpressed. Getting over that issue, I tried on this jersey only to find it, too, was way too small. In fact, it didn't fit any differently than the medium I had ordered. Super disappointed because this really is a beautiful jersey. Sorry Pearl Izumi...hopefully your newer products will go back to your "real" sizing chart and not some fantasy "adults the size of small, thin children" sizing chart.
