For a guy 185lbs and 5'9", what the right jersey/shorts size? Someone said size 5 (XL) is the right size for Euro jerseys/shorts. Any thoughts?

I'm a "big chested" 150#er and usually wear a #5 ..... and sometimes a #4 and sometimes a #6 depending on the make of the jersey. Turns out they aren't all the same.

At 185# you'll probably fit a #6 the best although you could probably get away with a #5. The team jerseys all tend to shrink a bit too so keep that in mind. I've scored a bunch of lightly used jerseys from my brother after the shrinkage factor did its thing.
