Waist measurement seems high as I take a usually a size 42-44 short or pants.
I'm thinking a 3x would do, any one have suggestions?
I usually wear an XL t-shirt and last round, I ordered an XL jersey. It's snug, which it should be. I normally wear 2X jerseys. If you find yourself normally wearing a 2x t-shirt AND you like snug jerseys, get a 2X, otherwise get the 3X.

I won't comment on sizing for two reasons. 1) CYA. I'm the one facilitating this and take no responsibility for anything other than I'll take your order and make sure it gets into the mail with your address on it and 2) I don't own and ATD jerseys, so I have no first-hand experience. What I will say is they've been very polite and helpful every time I've called, so you may want to pick up the phone and see if they can give you guidance. I'm sure it won't be the first time they've heard your question and will probably have a pretty good answer for you!
I get that. I started as a hobby with film back in 1992, put the cameras away for a few years ago and then had a renewed interest with the advances in digital. I picked up a body that would use my lenses (Pentax) and then decided to start a business to be able to take advantage of some tax breaks.

Food photography eludes me, and sometimes I don't connect with people so I turned to landscape, hot air balloons, flowers, and wildlife.

Oh and to keep this back on track the Aerotech bibs I have tend to run at American sizing or a little big.

Thanks for the reply TrojanHorse, it sounds like a 3x would be the safe bet.
Hmmm, I wonder if these shrink at all in the wash, or can be shrunk on purpose.

Shrinking is unlikely, they're not a natural fiber.

Looking at the poll, it looks like 8 have committed. Getting closer!

So true, I manage to shrink almost everything but stuff that is synthetic.
I guess I'll go 3x, but will wait for last call to order on #5.


Who ever is in charge, just post in this thread a day or so before we need to pony up.
Thanks!

I have to admit when the detailed photos came in from the round I regretted not getting in on the fun.

I'll take one for sure.
Thanks for setting this up again.

I didn't see your vote in the poll at the top of the page.

OK, so interest grew faster than I expected. I'd like to see one or two more interests before we open up payment.
@IndianaRecRider, I suspect that if you're not ready here in the next week or so (and I totally get that), start saving now and jump on round 6. I suspect that won't be too terribly long.

Yeah, looks like I'll definitely have to wait until next time . 24 to 28 hours a week plus bills doesn't leave a lot of left over money for bike related purchases unfortunately.

By the time round 6 rolls around however, I will have the necessary funds saved up.

That's a week from today. I usually have the payment window open for a week or so, so I think you'll be ok.

Sweet. Let's let this ride through the weekend and I'll send out PM's to each of you who have voted on Monday with the paypal link, the info I need and an email address to communicate, considering a good number of those committed have less than the 50 posts required to PM.

PM sent. I'll be adding a chart at the top of this thread showing member name and sizing request. No personal information will be shown. I'll ask you to confirm that I have it right when the chart is updated with new information. Thanks.

Additional members can get in on this until the time that I close the order window and submit the group order to ATD.
