My size is aprox' 98cm, but i've ordered a 100cm which is XL [charming eh?]

My guess is it will either fit me right or be a bit baggy. Wish me luck

Do let us know how it works out. Despite my size problems, I'd still love one of those!

Yes will let you know but don't forget it may take 2 to 4 weeks to arrive here...
Just as well this is a summer day jersey so won't be needed for a couple of months yet :D

Stolen Goat make some men's jerseys with pink flamingos, flowers, all sorts. And men's Bibshorts with a pink trim. Worth a look (expensive mind), it's lovely quality stuff.

Stolen goat - just been on the website and loving the pink trim bib shorts... Just asked of they have the Pink Trim jersey ( to match the shorts ) in my size. They have every other colour in the Solo Range ( same design for men and women ) so hoping they have the pink :)

Are they mistaking the design for that of Black Cat Cigarettes? :)

The Chat Noir was a nightclub in Paris.
According to Wiki it operated from 1881-97.
The design was by Steinlen (of 'Steinlen's Cats' fame) so you should be safe with it. Unless the OH disapproves of Paris nightclubs! :mrgreen:

Take a look at Rapha. Pink has been a signature colour in their range for a few years.

It's arrived :D

First impression out of the wrappings; the red colour is a more vivid bright post-box red than how it looks in the image which to my eyes is more deeper blood red. Also the zipper is white and not black as shown in image.

The 100cm size i ordered has an impression stamp in neck of 'XL'
It fits me okay, about the same as my L size Castelli jerseys. I'm 38" around bust.
I can only assume their size guide is for the Chinese market who probably average smaller than us fatty westerners :lol:

The tailoring is quite good, albeit a tall torso and slightly baggy around waist but not of big concern.
Elasticated around hem for snug fit around hips.
There are no little white labels stitched in anywhere, just the stamp impression on the neck, XL - 100% polyester and blurred washing instructions which i guess mean don't iron / don't tumble dry and what is illegible but looks like maybe wash 30º C

Anyway, i've bunged it in the washing machine at 30ºC along with an old [sacrificial] white towel to check the colour fast.
It should look even nicer with the packaging fold lines washed out :lol:

<>

Edit: Yes it survived the 30ºC wash okay. All i need now is some summer weather to try it out 8)

Terry clothing from the US has a reasonable range, and also caters for larger sizes

Corrinne Dennis is a British Company that also has larger sizes

Thanks for the info, Debs- I'm very tempted, as it may just fit me, on your description!
