    Hey,

    Bought my first jersey at the weekend and am unsure on the fitting. Sleeve length and tail length are good but at the front it just feels uncomfortably short. I might just need to convince myself that it is correct. Saying that, it looks bigger on my than the guy in the photo :D

    Got this guy - http://www.wiggle.co.uk/dhb-blok-prism-long-sleeve-thermal-jersey/

    Might go for a sneaky spin with the tags on. Any other tips?

    Bear in mind it's not designed to fit properly off the bike. Sit on the bike and see how it fits. Chances are the front will sit perfectly then. If the tail and sleeves fit then it's probably fine, if you go up a size then the sleeves and tail will be too long. Some of the reviews mention that the fit is small, but I often think when people think cycling clothing is small fitting (thinking Castelli in particular here) that they're losing sight of the fact it's supposed to be a tight fit.

    Edit: Short version...What thekooman said!

    Dont bother judging it unless you are wearing bib shorts/longs at the same time, they should come up high enough on the front fully cover you if the jersey is long enough.

    And at that, even Olympic champions sometimes dont have a lot to spare....

    OP - your position on the bike should shorten your front and lengthen your back - hence the reason why the jersey is short at the front and long at the back. As TheBlaaMan has said, it won't look right without bibs nor when you're off the bike.
