|Which jerseys work for skinny guys?||Matno|

|I know this topic has been brought up in the past, but I searched the archives and didn't find much in the way of recommendations. I did find some ridiculous rants from 170lb guys who claim they are "skinny" and have a hard time finding jerseys. (6'1" and 170 is NOT skinny). I am 5'11" and weigh between 135 and 140 (clothed). That's skinny... :)
Anyway, does anyone know of any jerseys that are specifically made to fit tightly around the waist/stomach area? I usually wear a medium, which is almost too tight across the shoulders, but loose around the belly. I wouldn't complain except that I notice a huge difference in wind resistance on my ocassional shirtless ride. (Only when nobody else is around and it's hot).
(I guess I could wear bib shorts OVER my jersey...ugh!)

|Try something Italian. I'm exactly your height (and used to be your weight 10 yrs ago!). Santini, Biemme, Nalini etc. they run really small.|
|Ditto Italian medium, stay away from U.S. 'club' fit (nm)||Spunout|

|Stay away from American fit jerseys. They are, generally, going to be loose fitting. That means stay away from Giordana Super-Fit if you are looking at that brand.
I find medium pro-fit jerseys to fit me best. Unfortunately I can't afford them! Spending $90-$120 on a jersey is a bit out of my reach at the moment.

|I can't fit into any of the Castelli jerseys. They are too tight across the upper body for me, so they might work.|

|My team's Voler medium fits me more snugly than any of my other jerseys.|

|I'm 6'' and 155lbs, and use Voler stuff.
Only thing that fits me snug is a large, RACE CUT.
Like someone said, forget the club cut.. it should be renamed GUT CUT.

|I have the same problem. I'm a little over 6'1", weigh ~145lbs, and built like a popsicle stick. I like the Castelli Simple full-zip jerseys in size small. I have one Louis Garneau size small that I picked up at the 3 State/3 Mountain century in Chattanooga this spring that fits well, but is a little short. I tried a couple of Nalini jerseys a couple of years ago, size large as recommended, and they are a little loser than I like.|

|i have come closest to a good fit with the Castelli's, although i find that to get them to fit me in around the chest and waist, the sleeves become super short, but i live with that cause i'd rather have a jersey fit my body. but i would agree the full zip fits my torso as it should. consider it almost a sleeveless. just for reference i'm about 5 10 and weigh around 145, and there is lack of upper body girth.
