Nice Jerseys

My husband is slender with a great body. I want to surprise him for his birthday with some nice jerseys.
Any suggestions? I live in the States. most jersey I see are cut a little too wide. I'd like some with a nice
tight, European(?) cut. If you have personal experience with a company or maker please let me know.
When I say his slim, he really is. We've even looked at some of the women's jersey's but they're not long
enough. (I'm posting here as I thought I'd have the highest chance of an apppropriate response)

Marge, you probably want to look at European brands like Castelli. Maybe Hincapie runs narrow also??? How tall is he and what is his weight? You may want to look for a men's "race cut" jersey. They can run tighter but can also be a bit shorter. You might contact Ed at www.repartocorse.com and ask him. He carries a lot of European jerseys.

I don't know how slim slim is, but I am 5'11" and 152 pounds. I love the ONCE jerseys sold every week by a vendor on eBay. If you do a search under ONCE Cycling, there is always an attractive array that will come up, and starting bid is always $29.95. They are top quality, and medium gives me a nice tight aero fit.

For example:

There are different colors every week, and his eBay store is usually well stocked.
