- Fitted cycle clothing…no, I mean fitted.. Slim / taped/ body fit?
Is there anyone out there with similar sizes to me that can actually find cycle clothing that fits?
ofc cheaper the better!
Italian stuff is just smaller, not necessarily “fitted”
so far, SOME of Giordana’s kit looks fitted, but I didn’t find any to try on, the measurements on wiggle show it may be a big baggy, but some say its elite fit, some say relaxed for casual riders. I’m casual, but I’m thin!
My fighting weight: 70kg, that’s 154.324 pounds and 11 stone.
height: 182cm /5’11 / 6’ft
Chest: 38 inches
~hip: ~36 inches
waist: 28-29 inches
Btw for anyone who is outdoorsy and has similar issues with coats and shirts being like a cape. Crux UK do very nice “built shape” jackets.Posted 4 years agoaPMember
Some manufacturers produce different sized lot for different countries. I think the UK is now lumped in with the US so the kit is all portly. Santini, Giordana, assos etc all make very fitted clothing, as well as stuff they sell in the UK and US.Posted 4 years ago
I’m currently a bit chubby at 65kg and 5’8″ but Giordana small is a good fit for me.
@crikey : It seems from this thread I’m not the only one with these problems. The problem is shoulder to waist ratio. Actually a lot of people are tubular and not a shaped triangle. This means a lot of clothing is tubular and if worn, is very tight in the shoulders and flaps below like a cape.
@motozulu …agreed..but I am greatly appreciative of the information and as well for light hearted humour!
@edhornby ; that site looks great, It seems that many people have sizing issuesPosted 4 years ago
