LEL merchandise sizing
« on: August 12, 2017, 11:33:05 pm »
Hello,

I wanted to ask people who bought 2017 items before the event, is the size correct? If I wear M size, should I buy M?

Thanks!

Medium-size race fit jersey fits me perfectly across the chest and shoulders, but is very tight around the waist (I have 32-33in waist).  The gilet is also a race fit across the upper torso, but tight around the waist, although not as tight.  Large would be loose and flappy, even in the race fit.  Basically, it's all tighter than a DHB medium, but fits me anyway.  I am 6ft, slim build, middle-aged paunch under control (as in, barely there ... yet).

Arm warmers in M are a perfect fit, as is the T-shirt.

I didn't buy a mug.
RRTY #6 done; #7 started.  Settling in for winter.

Anyone know if the 'race fit' jersey is the same as the 'club fit' from Force GB that the AUK jerseys are?
Some routes may be arduous.

Dunno if it's actually the same, but it's certainly the same name ... Race fit=club fit, relaxed fit=event fit.

The large certainly is.

I like my jerseys reasonably tight, but I'm shaped more like a rugby player than a cyclist - so on that basis I guess I will have to go for the "Event" cut in a Medium.

Other than the cut, is there much of a difference between the "Event" and the "Race" jerseys?

Race has a zip pocket (outside) the central one of three.
