The 2015 PBP jersey was made by Giordana I think. Their sizing table is different to the 2019 PBP website one.

Not according to the jersey itself — 2015 jerseys were made by Alé. 

Measuring myself up against the given size-table gives a Large again — 38" / 33" / 6' / 70kg, close enough.
RRTY #7 done.  Need something else to do ... ah, welcome #8 8)

Absolutely correct! I have a 100cm chest, and the 'L' fits just fine, so I'll be ordering it again.

I do like the little (if rather useless) zipped pocket on the left breast - presumably for a packet of fags in the day!  :hand:

Wow, just checked, and indeed there is a zipped chest pocket. Never noticed that before. Also checked and my jersey defo a large.

Thanks all for the varying insights. I have changed mine to an XL for the jersey and L for the Gillet and will wait and see what I end up with!

Just to confirm, I’m very pleased with my XXL. I’m a 40” chest and a L in ForceGB.

It’s a snug racing fit, and tight on my skinny arms, but I’m happy with it.

Hope that helps people choosing sizes...

I'm not sure I trust the size guide

according to the guide, my height is a medium jersey, my waist is a medium jersey, but my chest is an extra large. I can't believe the difference between waist size and chest size is as small as 4cm at all sizes.
Believe what they say. I have a large I am happy with, but I do like my jerseys snug. (38" chest)

37" chest, medium fits well. small would be even better if it was longer (i like snug-fit jerseys).

Got an XL in the 'ficcial one and an XXL in the polyester/wool maroon one.
Both of which are a bit tight for my liking me as soon as I add a base layer, since they're summer jerseys I've ordered a 2XL in the latest bunfight for Scottish summer use.

I reckon the Large fits just a bit more snugly than a Gore Med - racing fit on me (6ft, 13st, 39/40in, definite though shrinking aerobelly), which I thought was fine because I like a fairly snug jersey, but I'd probably have struggled to zip up anything smaller.

I have just completed some touring in Les Alpes de Haute Provence (ie this is an opinion based on riding for a fair few kms and wearing it as my only top for a week, not just 'trying it on') wearing my PBP top, which is an XL. My chest is 39" and it is a snug 'racing' fit: 'L' would be too tight. I helped dish out the LEL (2017) clothing so took advantage of that to check which top was the correct size for me: a large, in the 'club/racing' (ie not 'event') fit. HTH
